Yeah, so what? So they tried to do something nice for you. Just say no thank you. Don't eat the cake. Don't eat the surprise. Say thank you, and if you have to accept the gift, save it for later and either throw it out or give it to someone else. So they get insulted if you tell them not to bother. Well, that's their response and you can't control it even though you have to tell them not to bother. It's your choice to go around life thinking all of this is a huge annoyance, that everybody is in the way and if only they would change you could live an easy-breezy life. Well, you can't live an easy-breezy life. Nobody can. But you can make it easier-breezier by not having a cow over everything you can't control.
