When this person was a kid, he and his brother endured the worst Christmas ever. It was simply canceled. The boys had apparently been fighting too much, so the parents took all their presents away.
Half of them went to their sister. All the others were sent to a thrift store after they were opened. It was an unforgettable Christmas. And not in a good way.
Hit the Road, Jack
This person's mom and his stepdad gave him some surprising news that Christmas. Surprising in a bad way. But before he got the update, he opened his present, his only present. It was wrapped in a large box and the size of it made it seem promising.
When he opened it up, he found a suitcase. A little bewildered, they told him “to be out of the house by March.” It was not a very merry day.
Not Your Run-of-the-Mill Gift
A Redditor who goes by SQUIRREL_NUTKINS shared this story of his old man who bought him a whole complete full carton of cigarettes all for himself. After getting past the shock of it all, he felt that a young squirrel would have probably preferred a toy or at the very least some new clothes.
He got a regulated substance known to cause medical conditions and a check-in pass to a hospital. Go figure.
The Divorce That Ruined Christmas
Suffice to say, things were not adding up to a great holiday. They were eating takeout from the only restaurant that is open on Christmas day. But then the parents dropped the news. It really ruined their dinner.
Couldn’t they have waited until the next day? Maybe they should have just canceled Christmas that year instead.
Get Up, Get on Up. Or Don't
Do you know what the worst part of this one is? There are no refunds, no exchanges, no swapping, no replacing. Nothing to do about it. Zilch. Finito. No Christmas present for you. Brown was 73 when he passed away and not at his peak when considering his health so, in a way, this guy should have thought about this when he purchased the tickers.
It's a gambling gift. There's no guarantee the musician will make it and if he doesn't, no one will take responsibility and the tickets are gone.
