Called out

Dude. I totally got called out by a lady I work with for not wearing the necklace she got me as a Secret Santa present. She literally just walked into my office out of the blue and started sweating me about it. Here's how the conversation went:

Her: I just wanted you to know that the necklace I got you for Secret Santa wasn't cheap. I paid more than $10 for it. And it was on sale. I just wanted you to know.
Me: Oh, cool. Thanks, I really liked it.
Her: I just didn't want you to think it was cheap.
(awkward silence)
Me: Oh, okay. Thanks.
Her: I just saw it and really liked it.
Me: I like it too. I just only have one brown shirt that would go with it and it has short sleeves, so it's been too cold to wear it.
Her: You don't have to wear it. I just thought it was nice.
Me: I think it's nice too. I'll wear it. I just don't have anything warm and brown to wear it with right now. But I'm sure I'll get

The next day I emptied my closet out onto my bed searching for a matching shirt to wear it with. I was a half hour late for work and I ended up wearing a short-sleeved shirt in the middle of winter, but I managed to wear the necklace.

Secret Santa Necklace: $10
Awkward Conversation With Co-Worker Regarding Whether It's Too Cheap To Wear In Public: Priceless.

Now you get to go spend money on a sweater so you can wear a cheap necklace.

I totally wouldn't have worn the necklace...what a bitchy thing for her to do.

It was a small price to pay to keep her off my back. I'd rather keep the peace than make a big stink over such a dumb thing.
