This person received some harsh news on Christmas day. With the hashtag, “WorstChristmasEver,” the Twitter user said that his parents told him that Santa isn’t real. According to the tweet, they waited 20 years to tell him, though if you ask us, by that time he should have figured things out on his own…
This dude was devastated. Gone. Shattered. On the floor. That was the worst year of his life. It’s a sad illusion to lose. We sure hope he’s over it by now.
Extra sarcasm. This girl got a book from her grandmother for Christmas. It was called, “The Ultimate Weight Solution for Teens.” This girl wasn't even considered overweight, but even if she had been, a weight loss book is never going to be anything but insulting.
It seems kind of abusive, at least psychologically. Grandmas are supposed to be loving, caring, and always baking your favorite sweets. They are supposed to brag and dote over their grandchildren, not humiliate them.
Just a Cover?
It was a disappointing Christmas morning when this Reddit user opened presents. One of the first gifts she unwrapped was a cover for a Nintendo DS. After opening the rest, all she was left with was the cover—no games, no console.
She had naturally assumed that the actual DS, the handheld game that pretty much every other kid had, would be inside one of her other gifts. Instead, she was left with empty boxes she could fill with all her tears. Why would someone do that to a kid?
A Disappointing Grandma
Getting a really cheap present for Christmas is one thing. Getting a really cheap present from your grandma is a whole other thing. I mean, if we expect something good it's got to be from our grandmother. Oh yes, and if that's not enough, it was bought in a dollar store.
What was this grandmother thinking? Didn't she consult with one of this kid's parents before buying this? Anyway, the toothbrush didn't even work. At least she could have invested in one that plays Justin Bieber songs while brushing.
Thumbs Down for This One
It’s a thumb war game that you play by yourself. Thumb war is an old game. Most people remember playing it as a kid with a buddy. You clasp each other’s hand, thumbs facing up, and try to wrestle the other kid’s thumb down.
His mom gave him the Thumb Thing, the by-oneself version of this game, which sounds like absolutely no fun at all and is described as the worst gift ever. Between you and us, we agree. Sometimes it's not just the thought that counts.
