Dear Fonseca,

I'm being called an insensitive jerk because I bought my wife a full length mirror for her birthday. She's been talking about wanting to lose weight and join Weight Watchers so I thought I would help her and jump start her weight loss journey. Now, I'm being villainized for buying what I thought was a thoughtful gift. I'm trying to help her not hurt her. Everyone I talk to say the mirror was a terrible present. Was it? What do you think about my gift? Bad or not?
