What to say to your friend whose taste in music goes to pop and you can’t stand the Christmas gift of a CD that he gave you and he’s pushing to know what you think of it? Do I lie? Or do I say, “We’re not into pop, so we’re recycling it to someone who is?”
What ticks me off is that I usually give him something I know he wants because he’s hinted to me that he would like it. On the other hand, everyone knows I’m a jazz buff and can’t stand pop.
