Today, as I was waiting in line to give my mom her birthday present, my dad gave her the exact same gift I'd also bought for her. FML

Hopefully she appreciates the thought behind the gift! :)

If it's something that can run out, then it's fine. If it's something that is static, then it becomes slightly redundant. So yes it does matter

Excuse yourself to "grab the gift" and take once if her nice shirts. :p Or just return it

Hopefully both of the gifts were thought of individually! It would be a dick move if the dad stole the gift idea intentionally.

I'm sorry OP, but YDI. You should communicate with each other ahead of time about this kind of thing.

no, he didn't steal it, my mum said what she wanted, apparently she thought we were going to buy the gift together as it was a bit expensive, but we both got it for her. One was just returned, I was just a little disappointed at the time that I wasn't the only one to get her it.

What is this gift?

That doesn't matter.

Maybe it was a vibrator

Depending on the gift, hopefully she'll enjoy two of it. If not, I hope you kept the receipt...

#23, #24 made my point for me.

Double penetration haha, I'm joking and I do wonder what it is :p

Some people on FML are fucking gross.

Nothing sexual in nature, it was a book

Give her the gift receipt first

Not the end of the world, just return it and get something different

It's the thought that counts. I think about getting people gifts

How long was the line?

I'm imaginging Momma OP sitting on a throne of confetti and presents with a balloon septor and a procession line of people offering her gifts to appease her.

This is also what I was wondering! :D If there's a line to give presents, then the mom's doing better than most people!

I think its more of a figurative line, like waiting for her turn to give her the present :D

Thanks to 48, I know what I'm doing for my next birthday !

Moms should be treated like queens for all the things they do for us.

Him: "We'll have a lot of fun with this." OP: "It's a favorite. You Will love it!

my advice to you would be move to a remote mountainous region. start a new religion. write a novel about your experience and develop it into a Oscar winning film.

the idea has definite potential

Aw that happened to me once. Sorry op

Lingerie? Sex toy? The Kama Sutra?

I don't want to know the relationship you have with your mother...

Oh yeah man, my first thought when buying a present for my MOTHER is to buy her something sexually related. You know, because I dont have problems or anything...
