On one hand, I want to say YDI for snooping around because it's rude to go through someone else's private things. On the other hand, your parents are cheapskates and liars. If you paid for the package yourself then take it out and tell them, "Hey, it arrived after all!"

Take it out and when they get home be like "hey look what just arrived in the post after all! They must have got the address wrong or something." If they protest and say you went through their stuff then you have the upperhand because obviously they stole your stuff, if they bite their tongue and play along knowing full well what you did but not willing to admit they stole from you.. you get more christmas gifts. Win win!

Or take something out of their room, rap it and, give it to them for Christmas And say that you thought that's what everyone was doing this year.

I would like to state that either way, don't play a match of call of duty with your dad over it. We all know how that ends.

If so, they should have the balls to tell their kid the truth. Not steal and lie in order to maintain their fake lives.

72- Or the parents saw a free ride out of paying for a present and took it because they are lazy. You shouldn't assume that just because they did that, they are broke. Hell I've done that to my husband, as a joke of course. We both laughed about it and I gave him his real present afterwards. Quit being so dramatic.

72- Why do you just keep assuming that the parent are in economic trouble? They could have just be lazy assholes who didn't want to go buy their kid a present. Quit ranting about their so called "financial trouble" because they probably aren't even in it. So please, shut up. You sound like a moron the more you go on.

89- No one knows either way if they are in financial trouble or not except OP. You don't need to be disrespectful and call anyone names.

I understand what you're saying. Everyone else is just assuming that the parents are saving extra cash they already have and lashing at you for being the devil's advocate. Read what he said again people and stop trying to pick fights that you can't back up!!!

Don't see how he deserves it for snooping around. If he didn't snoop then he wouldn't have known, and the parents would of only gotten away with stealing from him. At least now he knows he can't trust his parents.

...because snooping around to find your Christmas presents is not a nice thing to do? If OP's parents had bought a present for him (a scenario that's more likely than receiving a present you paid for), OP would have found it and destroyed the surprise. Again, not nice.

in OPs defense, it is a little odd that the parents said "ask Santa to bring it". I mean obviously if they're old enough to order online they know... er... that Santa is on a cruise this year...

Number 50 I really love your cover up! Haha but I'm assure if people are on this site they know about Santa XD

Some parents say things like that to be cute, I'm 31 years old and my parents still put 'from: Santa' on some of my presents.

What's wrong with you? His parents stole his property and wanted to cheat him! In what way is that acceptable? Just because there are poor kids out there doesn't mean it's OK to steal form your son. If you don't see that, I advise you find professional help.

This is how I read your post: 'There are worse situations than yours, so you don't have the right to complain.' Bad attitude, mate.

Although I would agree that some people have become way too possessed with getting items, usually expensive, for Christmas this was still a classless act by their parents.

Reply

I see your point with the first world problems compared to third world problems but if you buy something and your parents steal to cheat you out of a proper gift FYL

So he's too young to have a smart phone or an FML account but he's old enough to buy things off the Internet? Where does your logic come from...?

While you shouldn't have been snooping in your parent's closet, what they did was even worse. You have to be a pretty scummy person to steal someone else's property to give it to them as a present.
