Today, my mum called and told me she had bought me a new, white dish washer for my apartment because it doesn't have one. I was SO excited and told her I'd pay her back as soon as I could. I only had to pay her $1.25. She bought me a sponge. FML

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.

It wastes more water and it requires physical work. Thats whats wrong with the manual way. Plus its not like he expected her to give him a dishwasher. She just said it to him it he thought it was awesome.

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.


The whole point of this is that they were expecting an appliance and got a sponge. Did you not GET that? Who gives a shit whether or not she had to buy them anything. The point is he was excited and then got let down majorly. Duh.
