Okay, come on. I bet some of her friends got cars and computers and iPods for their birthdays. I understand she shouldn't feel 'entitled' to anything, but can no one understand the disappointment? She isn't homeless or living in poverty so her parents can probably afford to spend well.... over three dollars on a gift for her eighteenth birthday. Yeah, it's not the end of the world, but you know what? Half you are posting these messages criticizing the OP from your goddamn iPhones that mommy a

YDI for not being understanding that your parents can't afford much this year, not even flannel bed sheets. I understand being self involved at 18, but you need to start learning compassion, too.

You sound like a mother of 2 Let the OP gravel abit, she wasnt born in a situation where she cant get prsents, those who dont presents are unlucky but like u already know, the world is an unfair bitch

#2, that's like saying that a lot of people go hungry every night so it's only fair that everyone should, despite the fact that they don't have to

Well there is a recession on at the moment......maybe they simply can't afford to buy you anything else......They say with presents it is the thought that counts.

Stop writing essays on this fucking site nobody is going to read it i just read the first and last sentence to see that you are a total douche nozzle

Plenty of friends, family members, and partners would have been disappointed had I not gotten them gifts. That's not immature because it's the norm.

I agree with synix (especially about the hypocrisy), but Flamersplamer expressed it in such a wonderfully concise way. It's not about the money; her parents clearly just don't fucking care.

ok. fuck you. bc your a stupid dipshit who for reasons unknown, feels the need to type essays on the internet to make ppl feel bad. again, fuck you. now im gonna go back to fucking your mom in the ass.

I liked what Flamersplamer said. I don't think her parents necessarily had to spend any money on her, but I don't know, I'm sure anything thoughtful would have been appreciated.

You know, #101, you really just make yourself sound like an idiot, who curses because he has nothing better to say. OP, I can see why you're disappointed; 18 is a big bday. Still, you definitely sound like you think they owe it to you or something. It could be worse. My mom tried to elope with a child molester on my 18th birthday. Welcome to reality.

actually... if anyone has been taking business classes or any class that involves the stock market, america hasn't been in a recession in years

IA. I'm 20 and in college now I never get much if anything from my parents and I feel terrible asking my grandparents (who have a bit more money, but not much) for things like iPods and more expensive gifts. Maybe you should just be grateful for the fact that you have two parents who probably love you very much and don't need to show that through the types of gifts they buy you.

Who says she isn't grateful to have parents? She was just disappointed by their thoughtlessness.

Her post says she wasn't grateful. She said she was expecting something big. She didn't get that something big, so she's upset enough to come post saying her life is fucked because she didn't get a big present. Add that in to the fact she lives in California, the land of the spoiled, and you got yourself a self centered, ungrateful person.
