An alcoholic who is on the path to recovery deserves every ounce of support they can get. In this case, someone took advantage of the giving season to be cruel to a person who was doing their best to stay sober.
The present came from the stepmom, of all people. Not only that, but she included a note that proved just how optimistic she was and didn’t have any belief in him. How about a little support, lady?
Is this a case of a direct snub or a callous carelessness? This person had been wearing their hair in dreadlocks for nearly a year when their aunt decided a brush was in order. Can't handle the hair, auntie? Good thing it's not your head it's sprouting out of.
Related or not, why would anyone think it’s okay to insult anyone else like that? How is this person’s hairstyle any of her business?
His Last Gift
This woman tweeted that the worst present she had gotten was “Cute outfits about 5 sizes too small.” Her ex-husband went shopping and apparently purchased pretty little outfits that would fit a person he wished he was married to.
Her husband had given them to her hoping it would inspire her to shed some pounds so that she might fit into the adorable threads. She said it inspired her, alright. She didn't waste time and showed him the other side of the door. Merry Christmas to you too!
Grandma Playing Favorites
When she opened the gift from her grandma, she said she was initially touched. Then, her cousins opened gifts from the same grandma too and revealed: "family heirlooms from a smelted gold dug from our village in Greece that glistened like mirrors." Gee, grandma, thanks for my obviously inferior plastic.
There is a thin borderline between feeling selfish and between feeling that what you have received is equivalent to garbage. With one cousin receiving a gold ring with a ruby embedded and other cousins with engraved golden bracelets, she could not help but feel snubbed.
It’s a Sign
Some gifts have double meanings, given metaphorically showing love or beauty. This girl received a gift that didn't leave too much room for imagination. She knew the pig statuette meant to make fun of her weight because they laughed at her embarrassment when she opened it.
They got it as a sign to ridicule her appearance. She should keep it as a sign of her godparents’ callousness. and maybe thank her lucky stars that they aren't her actual parents. We love that she got them a tiny candle symbolizing the size of her affection.
