Not him, but his brother. This person’s brother had a bit of a weight problem. His uncle gave him a box of weight loss bars and he felt awkward and embarrassed. How cruel can someone be? Apparently, more than you can imagine.
The boy found a Snickers candy bar and a gift card. The uncle thought he was being funny but he clearly wasn’t. This could have been worst. He could have done it the other way round and wrapped a weight loss bar in a Snickers wrapper.
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.
A Car Calendar
In general, a car calendar is not the worst gift to receive, but in this case, it was. A high school boy had saved his money for months to buy a necklace with diamonds for his girlfriend, who is now his ex-girlfriend. She opens it up and jumps for joy.
And then he saw the gift she gave him, the calendar. To make matters worse, his friends brutally ridiculed him for months about it.
What a Rip-Off
In the eyes of parents, Walmart and cash are pretty much the same. This girl got a few bits and pieces for her winter outfits while her brother walked away with a royal stash. He also got five new Xbox games and a rifle for squirrel sniping.
It is impossible for siblings to disregard the fairness of presents, and generally, parents try to balance the scales. We would now start searching for an adoption certificate laying about somewhere in a hidden closet.
Husband, Know Thy Audience
It seems that Dad was incredibly insensitive that year. He got this person’s mother a stick of Clinique wrinkle concealer. At least he did not skimp on the makeup line, but according to this tweet, it didn't go down very well.
He could have gotten her a facial mask or perfume or night cream or some toner — anything would have been a better gift from the Clinique counter than wrinkle concealer. Sounds like she needs a concealer for her husband!
