^People never seem to think about those things. Nothing is free in USA. If it is free, you're getting taxed a ton of money. That's why if someone gives away a vehicle, you ask them to write down that they sold it for $100, give or take, on the pink slip so the buyer/receiver only has to pay minimum taxes. Otherwise, the DMV determines how much the vehicle is worth and taxes the shit out of the receiver of the free vehicle.
If it's a prize, it becomes "additional income" which could potentially boost you up into a higher tax bracket and you'll pay your regular tax percentage on i (so if you fall in the 20% bracket, you'll pay 20% of the prize value). That's it. If it's a gift, the IRS website says gift taxes are paid by the donor, unless the donee agrees otherwise.
I'm kind of confused by the OP and why they fainted. If OP knows he/she doesn't dress well and wants to change it, then why doesn't he/she change it? Sure clothes can be expensive, but if you're really embarrassed of your clothing to the point where the prospect of someone buying you better clothes makes you faint, I think that's a sign OP should probably put more effort into their attire. And hell, there are plenty of cheap stores and thrift shops that have nice looking clothes for a bargain price. You don't have to spend big to look nice.
#46: That's true. I didn't think of that. Still, if OP is really that bothered by how he/she dresses, then they can always get the opinions of others, or look in fashion magazines, or even look online at what are the latest trends this season. I mean, clothing isn't that important, but OP is clearly bothered by how he/she dresses and wants to change it.
You sure your wardrobe wasn't the actual liability risk?
Well OP, I'm inclined to agree with them. That's hardly something to faint over. Although if it was a "What Not To Wear" type show, you've been insulted by them twice. You're apparently poorly dressed AND a liability.
