To think that this could have been mischievious?

To think that receiving a birthday card with a photo of a real pig, wearing lipstick, and having a handbag, from someone you don't get along with very well may be perceived as an insult?

The pig was really, ugly and slobbery and in no way cute.

Yes that's an insult....but sorry I just spat coffee out laughing blush grin

If you don't get on with them then the card is a bit off, kind of saying 'I saw this and thought of you'.

The handbag sounds OK though.

Who gave you them?

Aw, may not be cute but piggy's mommy loves him/her.

Draw some clover around the pig and see the card as a symbol of good luck. If the sender harbours any negative thoughts about you, their negativity will come back to them x 3.

BTW, an early, belated, or on time, Happy Birthday to you wine

Tell them thank you sooo much for the card - you absolutley loooove pigs and that one was just sooooo cute - nothing will wind them up more than thinking that you really liked it smile

AgentZigzag: the PIG had a handbag.

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Aug-11 17:28:52

Oh I see, thanks martini.

So like this but with a handbag?

Do you own a pair of pink heartshaped glasses MissM? <<snort>> grin

Who thinks up these fucking pictures??

Agent, that pig was prettier than the one which I received. It really was a revolting specimin!
Its best feature was its handbag!

Thenk her for sending you a card that reminds you so much of her.

"Thank you so much for the card, I will think of you every time I look at it" <said with a sweet smile - then walk away serenely>
