Why is it that parents think it's so damn funny to trick their kids into thinking they bought them a large gift when they actually bought them something small? Doesn't sound like anything but a good way to get your kid to resent the hell out of you, if you ask me. And no, I'm not saying kids ought to expect any large gifts from their parents, but I still think it's entirely unnecessary to trick your child into thinking they're getting something they're not.

I don't think it was bitchy. A bit misleading though. OP, why would you expect her to buy you a dishwasher? By moving out on your own,shouldn't you be financially responsible for yourself? She may have misled you but YDI for thinking she just up and bought you a dishwasher. Besides, what's wrong with doing dishes the "manual" way?
hey atleast you save on the electricity. you do not want to face the electricty and heating a dishwasher requires.
A dishwasher saves a lot of water though, compared to washing dishes by hand in the sink. Think of an automatic car wash, where it reuses the water throughout the whole day, and you get the idea. That said, I would never move into a place without a dishwasher, unless I had no choice. I hate cleaning, and I hate washing dishes even more.
I don't know about you, but I pay one set price for water here so it's not a huge issue... my dishwasher doesn't work though, my landlord tricked me by having a portable one so that I THOUGHT I'd have a dishwasher. Washing by hand isn't that bad, just time consuming. Anyways, it was unnecessarily mean of her mom to get the OP's hope up.
Hey, better than not getting ANYTHING at all, right? She doesn't need to buy you anything so be grateful!
