Giver

While joking around the other night, my brother used the term Indian Giver, an expression I haven't heard in a long time, maybe not since childhood. Probably this expression has fallen out of fashion because it is horribly politically incorrect. The preferred term now would be Native American Giver. I'm just kidding, of course, that is no better. But what would the right term be? Is there a neutral term for someone who wants a gift back?

Is there a neutral term for someone who wants a gift back?How about ex-wife/husband/fiance?

How about the term "jerkwad?" Seems to fit.
