    You tried to give someone a really shitty gift, and they said 'nah, fuck that'?

    A horse as it grows older will continue to grow teeth. As new teeth grow the existing teeth can change shape and push forward. Now someone who knows a lot about horse teeth can look inside a horses's mouth and predict its age.

    So the phrase Don't look a gift horse in the mouth is basically saying, if you receive a gift be thankful to the person who gave it to you. Don't start inspecting it to see how crappy, or how valuable it is.

    For example is someone gave you a laptop as a gift, take it and say thank you. Don't start saying oh this sucks because it has Windows Vista and such.
