honestly, christmas is not about getting presents. its about giving and if you are old enough to clean the whole house and make cookies then maybe you are too old to even be complaining about the # of presents. 4 yr olds would be devastated if they came downstairs and didn't see a single present under the tree. and at least they gave you notice
if christmas is not about getting presents then they shouldnt have gotten a bunch for the 4 year old and nothing for the older kid. theyre horrible parents unless the older kid is a bratty miserable child all year..in that case the older one doesnt deserve anything
when you do something nice, you usually don't ask for anything in return.
she wasn't expecting a christmas present for cleaning the house, she was expecting one because it's christmas, and if her parents can get her sister presents (plural) why couldn't they get them one each instead of getting her sister some and not even one for her.
You definetely did not deserve that. Kinda sad to hear you did all that, but didn't receive the tiniest bit of gratitude. merrr Christmas though!!?!!
How do we know the OP wasn't unemployed and therefore couldn't purchase anything? OP also didn't buy the cards, they made them. I don't know about you, but I would appreciate getting a handmade card. And I also know this - my parents would be way more appreciative of a clean house and fresh baked cookies over some present I bought them. Instead of getting a thank you for cleaning the whole house, top to bottom, which is most likely outside of OP's regular chore list, they got no gratitude. So no, OP did not deserve this. You're just shallow and materialistic.
Merry Christmas! What is it with all the horrible parents that show up here? Where they perfect until one year little Bobby/Becky got let down or have these FMLs been years in the making? I mean really, an event so horribly tragic as this just doesn't sneak up on you does it? On the other hand... Shop for yourself, the stuff always fits and you get exactly what you wanted. Also works for birthdays.
I won't say YDI, but depending on your age I wouldn't say FYL either. Once you get to a certain age you aren't necessarily going to get presents just because it's Christmas. I haven't gotten presents for Christmas for years, and I wouldn't say it's an FML. But, as I said, it depends on your age. If you're pretty young, it does suck that your parents didn't at least get you something.
