I've given plenty of jewelry for women in the past (mother, sister, girlfriend). Personally, I would rather them say something like this to me than wear something they do not like! You have given your Mom a gift that she is grateful for no doubt - just because she has a different personal preference does not take away from that!
I agree with #14. This really isn't a FML, nor is it a YDI. You got her a gift, that was really nice of you. Unfortunately, it was something she didn't like and she politely asked if she could exchange it. The way you are making it is similar to buying a brand new pair of shoes for someone with no feet. Would you be mad at them for asking to exchange it for something they would get more use out of?
At least she will pick herself up something she will actually wear,better then having it lying around in her room...still ungrateful thi!!
Okay, so your taste in bracelets isn't the same as your mother's.... It's not the end of the world. (& it's certainly not an FML!) She obviously appreciated the gift. Instead of whining about it, check out the bracelet she exchanges yours for & remember it as an example of her style. If you're old enough to hold a job, you should be old enough to understand the situation & shouldn't take it personally.
