Be glad this one is not your kid. He “only” got a Kindle Fire and an iPhone 5. To put things in perspective, he went on to say that he asked for a new iPad. Except the perspective makes him look even more like a douche.
To punctuate his commentary found on Reddit, he added how he felt towards his parents. All we can hope for is that this guy is over the trauma and wish him a fast recovery.
What to Get an Atheist for Christmas
Or maybe we should say, what not to get an atheist for Christmas. This person’s mother gave him a gold cross as a necklace. It seems like an innocuous and ubiquitous piece of jewelry, but it was not received that way.
Despite the fact that this person had declared over a decade ago that he is a “devout” atheist, his mother decided to give him the Christian symbol. One person tweeted a reply suggesting she sell the gold for cash. Now there is a god everyone believes in.
Three Strikes, You're Out
Before we dig into this to better understand what was the message the husband was trying to pass to his wife, we have one question. Since when does the price of the present matter? Since when do we measure how much our partners spend on us and only then decide how much we spend on them? Since when? Since now!
A Blender? Was this guy serious? A Walmart Blender? Even if they didn't already have three of them at home, there is no excuse for this. Divorce the guy.
Christmas Got Left Behind
This person shared that her worst Christmas present was literally nothing. Santa got her zero presents that year because she went out of town with her family to stay with relatives for the holiday and they left all the presents at home by accident.
As a kid who might not grasp the fact that the presents are at home, that perhaps Santa delivered them to the wrong place that year, it was devastating. She said that as far as she was concerned, she got that year absolutely nothing.
What Was Grandma Thinking?
This poor girl had lost her dog around Christmastime and her grandmother got her a replica of her pet as a doorstop. It didn’t just lay there, it had batteries that made it appear to be breathing while it was sleeping, making it look real like it was alive. Her grandma evidently thought it was a great doorstop idea.
Little old grannies sometimes have an odd sense of empathy. Maybe as the years kick in so does the lack of sensitivity. How on earth was a little girl supposed to be OK with this kind of present?
