When an eight-year-old girl receives a dishtowel for Christmas what is she supposed to think of the holiday? There is a chance that a new generation of kids will grow up losing the whole magic of Christmas all because of a dishtowel.
We can pretend that the thought behind this was to complete the little girl’s kitchen set as god knows how she could have continued playing without the towel. Were the outcomes of this taken into account?
Oh, Nuts Were Cracked Alright
A chance to see a production of the holiday dance performance set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music is a great gift. But this kid was 7. As a little boy, he was truly not interested in watching the show.
After having to sit through the show, he learns that grandma did not get him anything else. It was the worst gift he’d ever gotten. This kid didn't know what was worse — the fact that his gift was a show, or that there was nothing else to follow.
The Ex-Wife's Fault
A good reason why you shouldn't get a divorce. If the children's Christmas gifts rely on it, you stay together no matter what. This 12-year-old kid went through enough difficulties during his parents' separation and now he had to deal with a nose hair trimmer? Haven't the children suffered enough?
We hope the parents learned their lesson and that the following Christmas the children got something more suitable for their age and family status.
The Kid Wanted a Dog
This girl wanted a dog, she really wanted one. Along comes Christmas, and her mom gave her a robot dog that barks and wags. Her mom callously announced that they had gotten her a dog, laughing and laughing away.
It was a traumatic experience. As an adult, she finally got her pet dog. She sums up her story by saying just how her love priorities changed.
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.
