Wow, that's a pretty douchey move on your brother's part. I know time is valuable, but if you can't spend a little time with your family members for special occasions such as birthdays ... I hope that he has a legitimate excuse such as a work commitment. Hopefully you can spend the day with people who appreciate you. Happy Birthday, OP!

I don't want to eat the devils avocado, but maybe because he's really busy and isn't able to do so? Even if so he should find some time at a later date to hangout. Hope you have a nice birthday though OP!! c:

If I were him I'd rather hang out than spend the money, but I guess it's too much effort not to spend money for him. Hopefully you can reason with him and he'll change his attitude, and happy birthday!

I'll be honest, I have no useful input about the FML itself. I just wanted to express my love for the phrase 'eat the Devils avocado', thanks for introducing me to it!

Random fact: avocation means lawyer in french, or advocate, but it also means avocado. Therefore, translating devils advocate and devils avocado would be the same thing.

Am I the only one who isn't interpreting the brother's actions as being necessarily negative? When someone wants to buy you a gift, they want to... BUY... YOU... a GIFT. With most families, hanging out with family is implied. Maybe the brother was frustrated because he obviously meant suggestions for material things. I know I dislike being told things like "oh, don't buy me anything."

I think he meant like if he didn't get you anything even though you asked... You'd still be upset. So he wanted to get you a gift card and hang out with you.
