The guy explained that his parents are settled down so they could afford a fancy gift. His younger brother got what he wanted so he was expecting his wish too. Well, he didn’t. He got a t-shirt. Poor kid. But it gets sadder.
The poor kid really felt like the black sheep of the family. Don’t the parents have any sympathy? And on Christmas out of all days?
It’s Beyond Insensitive
One can only guess how humiliating it must have felt opening the gifts that were only meant to be cruel. At the end of his post, the Redditor asks rhetorically a question. Here’s what happened.
It was a Secret Santa holiday party at school. Other kids were getting cool presents. When he opened his gift, he found a watermelon, some fried chicken, and a pack of Kool-Aid. Not Kool. Not Kool at all.
Let's Go Vintage
Before going cheap buying a used gift, and trying to present it as vintage, there are some rules you must follow. If you buy something that is supposed to come in pairs, make sure both parts are identical with no differences whatsoever.
If one earring is moldy and has green growth and unrecognized reptiles on it, make sure the other one has them too.
From Beyond the Grave
This person received a super cringy gift from her mother. Here is the backstory. A few months before the holiday, her cousin tragically passed away in a car accident.
On Christmas, she got a keychain breathalyzer which in itself is not completely awkward. But when she looked at the card, it said it was from her late cousin. The morbid message was not appreciated.
Politics Has No Age
This could be a great present for the right person. Politics are a hot topic, like, all the time. Especially on Twitter. Never in kindergartens, though, which is something big bro should have known. After all, he was old enough to make such a purchase and the Redditor wasn't even allowed to cross the street without adult supervision. It happened when he was five years old, but he can never forget it.
It was his bigger brother who gave him a 500-page book about politics, a virtual brick to a person who couldn’t really read it yet. It certainly left a strong impression.
