Upset and confused over the tone of the gift, the woman reached out on the Am I Being Unreasonable forum to understand if she was overreacting to the incident. In a post on the forum, she wrote: “I have been gifted a ‘Go F**k Yourself I’m Colouring’ 50 swear words to colour your anger away, adult colouring book…

“Which should be fine, (but) a lot of the words to colour are not swear words per se but really, really unpleasant misogynistic, sexual slurs and terms that I associate with pornography.”

The post has over 340 comments, with most people agreeing she was right to be angry and disgusted.

She took to the site to ask for advice on whether she should confront the person who bought it for her or just throw the book away.

She asked: “My quandary is whether I should say something to the group or just hide it in the recycling and forget about it?”

While some agreed with her sentiments and suggested she should just “bin” it, a few people asked her to “get over herself”.

One user Palavah said: “Get over yourself. Regarding the messages in the book itself, I suspect your colleague didn’t look at every single one. Recycle and forget.”

Another commentator BigBoat1 wrote: “If you don’t find it funny, bin it and move on. Don’t be the t**t who makes a big deal of it after Christmas.”

One fuming commenter wrote: “It’s vile, just bin it, I wouldn’t even give it another moment of thought to say something. Do you know who gave you it?”

A second said: “Yes, that’s pretty horrible. Bin it. But I wouldn’t be taking it personally or saying anything.

“Secret Santa is a nightmare for all kinds of reasons including this one of allowing people to demonstrate their very poor taste and judgement”.

The poster went on to explain that she was “quite offended” that someone had deemed it an appropriate gift for a colleague in a professional environment.

One of the commentators WorraLiberty said: “I’d just bin it. They probably didn’t go through every page and just thought it was a book of swear words.”

Another one, Marcipex said: “I think it’s massively inappropriate but I would just bin it. I don’t suppose the giver looked closely at it.”
