Today, I took my mom out to a fancy restaurant, and spent close to $300 on her Mother's Day present. Later, my little brother drew her a card with crayons on pink construction paper. She cried. He is 20 years old. FML

just goes to show money doesn't buy happiness

At least your Mom cares for the sentimental things. Mine bitched at me for not getting her anything. I'm 1,000 miles away and unemployeed. Called her several times throughout the day to at least wish her a Happy Mother's Day. She never picked up. She only called back to bitch at me.

Agreed....Sometimes homemade presents are the best!

that's mean but funny

The OP isn't trying to say that a gift is better if it's more expensive. OP obviously put effort into the restaurant/gift and wasn't afraid to spend money in order to make the occasion memorable, while the little brother, who is old enough to get/make a better present, just decided to take the easy way out by making a cheap card during the day. However cute and heartfelt the card seemed, it was still the easy way out, and showed almost no effort or foresight, while the OP's gift was thought out and was worth something.

that's why she cried cause he's 2o and gave her that

did she cry of happiness or because her 20 yr old son gave her a cheap card with no effort

exactly what I thought

Well maybe she just misses you guys when u wer still kids:/

Money is not everything.

Yes, but it is painfully obvious who put more effort into there gifts.

YDI for being a consumeristic whore! F*** your corporate holidays and f*** anyone who supports it! WHITE POWA!

Maybe it just reminded her that her kids are all grown up? I mean it could have triggered memories from when you guys were little, and now those days are gone. LOL or your mom is just weird, idk.

It's not the monetary value. Clearly.

Maybe she thought his was more heartfelt?

And to think i did that in kindergarten and she 'loved it'. Fake Bitch!

Is he mentally challenged? That'll probably explain the tears.
