Today, the lady whose son I babysit sent me a text, saying she left a gift for me for all the hard work I've done. I found a beautifully-wrapped box where she said the gift was. It turned out my actual gift was cookies sitting right next to it. FML

Hey everyone, OP here. Let me shed a little light here. I was greatful she got me something to begin with! So don't say I wasn't, the sugar cookies were very yummy. It was just very misleading is all. And everyone curious what was in the wrapped present I didn't open it, there was a note flap on it and it didn't have my name on it. I texted her confused and she said it was the cookies. So yes I was greatful, and I'm a bit curious what she got 'Sara' too.

I think you guys are interpreting this wrong. OP talks about the beautifully wrapped gift being in the same place as the cookies. Given this, I think OP opened the gift, thinking it was for her and got in trouble for it.
Either scenario, it sucks for her

OP was not being ungrateful, rather he/she was just slightly disappointed that they didn't get as great of a present, and it's understandable, because, I mean, if I thought I was getting a laptop for Christmas but really got a blanket, I would still be thankful, just slightly disappointed.
