There is probably no good day to be evicted, but Christmas day is definitely one of the worst. This person’s landlord served him an eviction notice on Christmas eve. Therefore, he had to choose between giving presents and paying rent.
He bemoaned the fact that the landlord did not wait until the day after Christmas to give him the bad news. Looks like not everyone takes time off for the holiday!
How About... Like... a Scented Candle?
This person was diagnosed with a severe illness. It had happened five years before posting her post. It’s Christmastime and she gets a present from her sister-in-law. What could it be? It’s a book. Then she realized it was a manual for coping with the process of passing away. Though insensitive, it was probably done with good intentions.
Luckily, she got the last laugh seeing that she was still alive five years later. Perhaps the affront triggered a determined resolve to beat that disease.
The Kid Knows the Rules of Life
Never underestimate the youth. Six-year-old kids know how life works. They know that parents are the food providers, they know that Santa probably doesn't exist and they know that pants are in no way considered a Christmas gift.
This poor kid had his Christmas ruined all because his mother couldn't find the time to buy him new pants and took advantage of the holiday.
Grandma Got a Pair of Socks
On a normal day, socks are a great gift. But this was a deeply cringe-worthy moment. This person, who goes by datcat2, said her grandmother received a pair of socks from her aunt. But first, she said that her grandma had her legs amputated.
One can only imagine how awkward it was as the aunt gifted the socks. Luckily, her grandmother’s overall health had improved by then. Still terrible, though.
This girl got an HP laptop for Christmas. It could be a top-of-the-line machine, but she absolutely hates it. She says the touchpad is too large and it messes up the size of the page you are on. She complained that it is so difficult to use that it nearly brings her to tears every time she uses it.
She felt ungrateful at first. She was having trouble with the audio in her headphones and speakers too. On the upside, @HPSupport tweeted her some troubleshooter tips.
