Complex malicious help

The new trend I've noticed is that almost everytime someone offers me help there's a malicious component, or several, to the whole thing. It's been like that for several weeks now.

For example, someone gifted me some small cakes which were very nice, but also toothpaste and a toothbrush, and an old baseball hat.

The toothpaste was actually useful, but there were two tubes. One regular, and one child size. The toothbrush was pink. I've lost count of the number of pink related incidents. They usually result in people shouting 'gay' at you constantly. The hat was strange, but the very next day my actual current hat disapeared. I think it was stolen. That entire day was full of food vendors trying to scam or mislead me in one way or another. It was like some sort of co-ordinated tsunami. I don't know how it happens, only that it does.

Another pattern that happens all the time is gifts of food that requires hot water, so it's essentially not edible, if you accept you end up carrying all this unuseable crap around, making your bags heavier than they are already. But if you decline the gift they act suprised like you are ungreatful. These incidents are highly highly correlated with water thirsting periods, where they mysteriously only give you milk, but no water.

It's like complex numbers there's a nice part and a malicious part. At times it all seems malicious.
