This post was very short. “Veggie Tales, multiple discs.” If you have heard of “Veggie Tales,” there is no explanation needed. It’s high-pitched cartoon characters who sing and animate stories with biblical themes that are specifically made for Christian children.
This person received multiple discs. Even assuming he is in the 6 to 11 age range the shows are meant for, he might not be Christian. And getting him those discs is not going to change that!
This person wanted a video camera for years. Every Christmas, this Redditor would ask for one but never received one. Finally, after spotting a used video camera at a yard sale, she was able to get one. This was in November. At Christmas, that very same year, the parents bought a brand-new video camera for her sister.
In another post, she explained that her parents don't really see her. And she didn't mean that they don't get together enough. She meant that they don't visually see her whenever her sister is around. Let's hope this has changed since.
A Self-Help Book
Turning 16, she had just gone through a breakup with her first-ever boyfriend. Her birthday is near Christmas, so her sister gave her one present for both the holiday and for her birthday, (a collective exasperation for those with holiday birthdays).
Ouch. To make matters worse, she had given her sister two gifts since her sister’s birthday happens to fall near Christmas as well. No sister symmetry here.
Learn Your Lesson in Life
We know exactly what happened here. The parents of this family generously asked each kid what they wanted for Christmas. One boy was pushing his luck and asked for a Lamborghini. A real Lamborgini. So they were about to teach him a lesson.
Next time, you better think carefully before asking for something you know is not going to happen and we bet your parents are kind of happy you have come to hate Lamburginies.
He got a mouse. We’re not talking about a pet mouse here, this Redditor received a computer mouse. And he had been wanting a computer for years. Every year he asked for a computer from his parents and then one year they gave him a mouse. Just the mouse.
It was like a cruel joke. It was like getting a helmet and no bike. Like getting a charger cord but not an iPhone. Honestly, no gift is better than a gift you can't use.
