    You've gotten some great advice here, but my first thought reading your post is it's a tactic. A ploy. They're trying to get to you emotionally, because they have a weak position. Anyone that has to...

    I guess I'm one of those difficult people to buy for, or so I've been told...by my sister, who, year after year, gets me gifts she likes. But that's beside the point.
