That 500 dollars could have gone a long way towards helping him buy a computer, any computer, and could get him a decent laptop too. My mom used to do this kind of shit too till I yelled at her and threatened to move out. Being the scared person she is, she stopped taking my cash. Just confront your parents about it, just because they're your parents doesn't mean it's ok for them to take money from you that wasn't given to you by them.
There are all sorts of reasons poor people have more children on average. Less access to contraceptives, less education about how much children can cost to raise, wanting a base of stability to support them when they are elderly (mostly in developing nations). Or they might just be irresponsible. It's a cycle that is unlikely to change, though there has been a substantial drop in teenage pregnancies in the last few years. We are at the lowest % of teen pregnancy that we have been in the 70 years they have been keeping track.
So I guess they just bought you a computer... with your money. Sucks!... unless of course you wanted a computer but then you could have bought your own :(
none of u know what urtalking about... OP's parents didnt get him or her anything for xmas - shitty Now, OP must have known, or later found out his or her grandparents were giving them money for a computer. OP's parents were scumbags and took it for themselves. there is no way that the post could be read more than one way. and clearly OP has the story straight
This has happened to me many times for my birthday and christmas money...
I know right? My mother stole my $300 for the operation my dog, and used it to buy a new phone for herself. She said that since she is my mother I 'have to give her money for everything she has bought for me' and that 'dogs are useless animals and don't need to have an operation on him.' >.> My dog got run over by a kid on a bike and sufferred extreme blood loss. We had to put him down :'(
That sucks, and I'm sorry they stole from you. But they're your parents. They've fed you and pretty much put a roof over your head for years. Anyways, it still sucks FYL.
