I don't know about that guys. I'm thinking the FML is more that they acted like they were getting her the phone by giving her the box but didn't. She has obvious reason to be disappointed as opposed to them just saying no which would still disappoint but not half as much. Wouldn't you be sad if you unwrapped a present and was all "OMG you got me the new *whatever*! You shouldn't have" Then you open it's..a Itunes card. As opposed to it just being "Wow, Itunes card, sweet!"

The only thing that comes to mind is the parents who filled their 8 year old sun's fake-Xbox 360 box with clothes and the look on his face was just heartbreaking.

Your probably thinking "I'm so upset because I didn't get an iPhone for my birthday!" Read that over a few times, even say it out loud. Then reconsider if your life actually is f*****

He's spoiled just because he WANTS an iphone? Um, no. He isn't upset that he didn't get an iphone, he's upset because his parents set him up for a letdown. They made him think he was getting an iphone when he wasn't. Being upset about a letdown like that doesn't make you spoiled.

Very well said. How can people think OP is spoiled? Seriously, people should read the posts. You win the internet for not being a moron like most of the commenters.

Wow, your life is fucked because your parents didn't buy a $400 phone with a $50ish a month data plan. Boo freaking hoo, if you want a phone to make you look cool go get a job

I only get one gift from my birthday, reflecting on how good I've behaved and how well I've done in school (back when I lived with my folks). It was normally something really nice (like a drawing desk) if I was good and getting wonderful grades, or something shitty (A cheap item from the Dollar Store) if it was a bad year. A birthday is meant to be special, granted you deserve it. Not a day where your parents are suppose to get your hopes up for the one thing you've asked for, and laugh in your face once you discovered you've been duped.

I would assume that your one gift normally doesn't have a monthly bill attached to it that averages $100. Let's see - LOWEST monthly plan offered by AT&T $39.99 + $30 for the Data Plan REQUIRED + $20 for Unlimited SMS (seriously who wouldn't have this?) = $89.99 before fees or taxes or any other usage charges. Even if they're on a family plan, its still over $60 a month EVERY MONTH. Unless the kid was paying for it, I think the parents gave them enough, and YDI.

^^ Agreed Plus iPhones are pieces of shit anyway. The ONLY reason people buy them is because you think it will make you look cool. It may be impressive to the fuckstain in the line behind you at Starbucks, but for those with more than 3 brain cells, you ain't impressin' nobody.

Nope I love my iPhone, it's really good for me because at my house all we can get is dial-up Internet. I live in the woods and we just don't get high speed internet. My parents have look into it and they don't want to pay $3000 to run the wires to my house for it. It's convient for me, especially at work. I also use it as a planner and have my balance for my bank accounts. So how about you stfu and stop assuming that people only get iPhones to "be cool". If people don't mind paying for the plan, there's no reason to mock them for it.

it's not ThAt she didn't get the iPhone, it's the fact that they wrapped the card in an iPhone case, getting her excited just to see her disappointment :/ it's a crappy thing to do

your missing the point. if it was a regular i didn't get it story then i would agree with you. but its the fact that they tricked into thinking he got one is whats fucked up. the fact that he thought he had an actual iphone a top quality phone then in a second have that joy ripped out is whats cruel.

well, thanks for insulting me, I don't buy phones so that they would make me look cool I chose it because it was free and had a really cheap monthly contract I use it mostly for keeping in touch with my carer and my psychologist and I use it as an mp3 player and use afew apps. making fun of someone for their choice of technology is immature and it makes you out as an unapproachable bitter person.

Um, I CAN'T see how they'd be upset if they got something else for a couple of hundred dollars. "I wanted and iPhone and the assholes got me a PS3! WAHHHH!" That would be horribly ungrateful and much worse than being upset about getting a $10 gift card.

What I am really saying that he is completely out of touch with reality if he think he can expect a gift worth hundreds of dollars when they can only afford $10. Either that, or they CAN afford the iPhone, but the OP fucked up so royally, they decided to take a big, fat, hairy, ten-dollar dump on his birthday, just to show him!
