Tupperware is highly useful, it seals food airtight. As for microwaving, there are few materials more equipped than Tupperware. But this dude was less than thrilled with his mom’s gift.
So, he gave his mom a bunch of nice stuff, but all he got were food containers. Does he even have his own place? Perhaps he’s in a dorm at college. Note to mom: Dudes don’t like Tupperware.
It Was a Present He Had Bought and Ordered for Himself
This story is an example of one of those times older brothers can be mean. Sure, they found their prank hilarious, but this younger brother certainly did not. He had come home from college on break and decided to order himself some video games. Only half of them had been delivered by Christmas day.
He sat opening presents that morning and found one from his older brothers. He ripped open the wrapping paper and, instead of an actual gift, it was the video games that he had ordered. Big bro was a big disappointment.
A Foxy Present
Imagine being about 10 years old and opening a present from your uncle that is basically glorified roadkill. It smelled. Clumps of hair were falling out. His uncle had cleaned it himself, but it doesn’t seem like he did a great job. It was a pelt, but he did not hunt it.
He proudly announced that he found the ill-fated fox getting run over on the side of the road. The kid screamed when he opened it and threw it across the room. Later he felt he had to apologize, but if you ask us, it was the uncle who should have apologized.
May the Force Live Long and Prosper
Trekkies and Star Wars fans don’t always mix, and this is a prime example. This kid wanted a Star Wars action figure. He said he specifically asked for a Star Wars dude. When he got a Star Trek dude instead, he scoffed incredulously.
This is like giving a Darth Vader to a Trekkie, who might embrace Roddenberry’s vision of optimism in the human race.
It Wasn’t What She Got, It Was What She Gave
This girl’s Christmas was ruined but the gift in question was something she gave to her big sister. It was a hand-painted block of wood. At five years old, she painted a dolphin on a wooden surface. It was for her sister who loved dolphins. But when she gave it to her, the young artist could tell it was not appreciated.
Kids can be cruel and many times say aloud things we adults don't even dare to think, let alone say. The now-adult Redditor said it was a sad Christmas that year. A very sad Christmas.
