"Christmas morning. I was maybe 15 and knew that my parents had spent all their money on gifts (we were very very poor growing up). My sister was 10 or 11 and also knew albeit vaguely that my parents were very tight on money (she and I had long talks about why we couldn't shop at the mall and why we always wrote hand-me-downs, etc).
She unwrapped it excitedly. I remember mom and dad looking at each other and their expressions of weariness but excitement, finally, they had gotten their daughter a gift she had really wanted, and who cared if we couldn't eat next week? And when she pulled it out she was completely silent, just looked at it with a grimace. My mom asked, tentatively, if that was a good present? Slowly, she wrapped it back up, set it in my mom's lap, and said, "Drixislove can have it. I wanted pink."
My parents were both in shock and I saw my mom's eyes well up with tears. My sister, oblivious, stood up and said, "This is the worst Christmas ever." Then she strode into her bedroom and slammed and locked the door. My mother was inconsolable and even my dad had to leave the house. I've never felt so sorry for them" Source
"My aunt gave a small birthday party for my cousin (who was turning 25) last fall. He got really upset and angry because she bought him a pair of black skateboarding shoes instead of brown ones. She tried to calmly explain that she couldn't find any brown ones, but he wasn't having it. I almost slapped him"Source
"My sister was so unhappy with the car my parents got her that she tried to sell it every time it was parked. This was back before cell phones so the only number she had to give was the home phone which my parents always answered if they were there. They got her back by moving the car one day and telling her that someone had bought it but since it was their car they got the money for it" Source
"After my mom died my step dad took some of the insurance money and bought his daughter a brand new SUV. I heard she threw a screaming fit in the driveway because it wasnt a sports car. BTW me and my other siblings got nothing at all from him. Of course now she is 35 and still lives with her dad and still screams and whines for everything she wants so I guess karma is a b---- (and so is my step sister)" Source
"I built my stepson a gaming computer, helped him set it up and got some games loaded up on it for him so we could game together and bond some. As soon as I had it all set up he told me to get out of his room and closed the door. I spent 4 months saving and buying parts for it one at a time" Source
"Similar issue with a group of children I'll allow to remain anonymous, they complained about their Christmas gifts being either too cheap, or too lame or one of many other things.
Their Father returned all of them to the store, and bought something for himself and their Mother. The following year they were very humble and thankful for the gifts they received" Source
"Every Christmas my in laws ask me to cook dinner for them. They always want steaks, and I always make sure to cook them exactly as ordered. I've been cooking for years at a restaurant, and now at the firehouse and know my way around a steak. Every year I stand out in the cold and grill their dinner while they sit inside and enjoy the fire. Every year they insist that their steaks are pink. Every year I prove to them that the lighting in the dining room is pinkish and if they would simply come outside and view their steaks in natural light they would know. So I go back outside and grill their steaks until they turn to charcoal to make them happy.
Every year I have to listen to 6 months of complaints about how f---ing tough the steaks were" Source
"Here's just one of (too) many.. Early morning cardiac arrest call. We worked on this guy furiously, got a pulse back, everything went right. Good call. Guy gets into the cath lab right away, and walks out of the hospital alive a couple weeks later.
Then his cranky a-- wife sends us a bill for carpet cleaning, saying that we tracked in mud on her carpet when we were saving her husband's life" Source
"A girl in one of my classes in high school came in all pissy and crabby one morning. The teacher asked her what was wrong. She began by saying her daddy had promised her a Mercedes Benz for her birthday, but she wasn't going to get one after all.
At first I thought "okay, fine. Her dad was just messing with her and she didn't realize it." After a few minutes of "OMG! It's not fair! I hate my life! etc" she explained why she wasn't getting the Benz after all.
Apparently, her mother didn't approve of her having a sporty Benz as her first car; the mom was afraid it would encourage her daughter to drive recklessly. So, the mom got the dad to buy the girl a brand new Cadillac CTS with all the bells dings and whistles instead.
Minor upshot: Not even a month later, she totaled the car. As far as I know, her parents fixed it but kept it for themselves after that.
TL;DR: Girl who only has a driver's permit gets crazy upset because she got a brand new Cadillac instead of a Benz for her birthday"Source
"My niece is 14. For the better part of 5 years my parents (her grandparents) have been raising her because her parents are deadbeats. Because of what her past was like (witnessing abuse, lots of emotional problems, etc) she is spoiled rotten. Last year for Christmas my parents bought her a $400 camera that is nicer than any of us have ever had. This year for Christmas she spent the entire day complaining about how "terrible" her camera was and how it "takes awful pictures" and how she deserves a new one.
Another story, my parents gave her a used iPhone (she's 14) a few months ago with an otter box case. She took the case off because it was "ugly" and then promptly carelessly dropped it on the ground, shattering the screen. She blamed it on my parents, saying they should have gotten her a case for it.
I have endless stories from her. She also broke her nice laptop by being careless and whines every day for a new one. I've never wanted to slap a kid as much as I have her at times" Source
"My grandma spent a whole year, a WHOLE F---ING YEAR knitting me, my brother and sister sweaters. very nice sweaters in our favourite colours. my brother looked at his and said "why would you waste your time making this? i dont even wear sweaters, im more of a hoodie guy." he was 18 at the time, that makes it even worse. ungrateful bastard" Source
"This one is about my sister's dad. I was in 6th grade and my sister in 8th. We only had for classes for extracurricular activities, and she'd already taken all of them, as they'd only lasted 3 weeks. So her teacher(and eventually mine) Mrs. McCulley, started teaching her American Sign Language during 6th period instead of what she usually did during that hour. My sister worked hard, and became an impressive translator using sign for her age. Mrs. McCulley scheduled a special performance for her to debut her skill during 8th grade graduation ceremonies.
She signed " You Raise Me Up" and it was beautiful.
She fumbled a little bit during the middle of the song, but smiled and mouthed "Sorry" to the audience, and continued on flawlessly.
After the ceremony was over, her father walked up to her and said
" Well, you f---ed up there didn't you?" Instead of being proud and grateful to have a talented child, he snubbed her out. She was so ashamed and embarrassed, she never did Sign again. She could have had a promising career teaching it. And he f---ed it up. I hate him for that" Source
"My cousin, who is 16 ran away from home because her mom wouldn't buy her a droid razor ( they couldn't afford it. her mother was working two jobs just to support her) she was only gone for a few days but just long enough to get pregnant" Source
"I suppose this is more of a funny one, this thread needs it... One year I got a little pedal go kart for Christmas, I was so excited, it was amazing, not nearly as excited as my little sister, who got a barbie play house, but she didnt want that anymore, she wanted my go kart! She wailed and screamed for 2 hours until I gave in and let her have a go, she pretty much monopolised it for the whole of Christmas while I made a fort out of the leftover boxes and wrapping paper and threw Walnuts into the fire and at my Dad. It was fun" Source
"A girl at my high school put a brick on her gas pedal and crashed her brand new mustang into a concrete wall, at school.
All because the car she got for her 16th birrthday was the wrong color.
And she kept bragging she'd "get a new one. I'm just teaching my parents a lesson" Source
"Know a friend whose mom absolutely spoiled her. Her mom, despite being disabled and with limited income, does everything she possibly can for her only daughter. Buys her phones, expensive clothes, whatever else she wants, and most recently a new car. Hell, she even does her homework for her, since my friend is D'ing or failing all of her classes, simply because she hates school and can't be bothered (even though she says she wants to go to college).
All in all, this girl is blessed with this awesome f---ing mom. My friend, however, usually doesn't have many pleasant things to say about her mom unless it's on Facebook.
So apparently there is this fair that they go to as a family every year, and her dad had recently died, so it would be the first year without him. Her mom brings it up and the ingrate called my friend point-blank says she is not going to let her mom go. Why? Because she only wants her cockhead of a boyfriend there. Her mom, who was on the verge of tears, said, "But.. we go every year.."
Broke my heart" Source
"My spoiled teenage cousin almost earned himself a d--kpunch last Christmas. We were talking about what we each got for Christmas that year, since we're both gamers. I was excited that my wife had gotten me SWTOR. He got a bunch of games, a new 360 since his old one was "dirty and scratched" (from his nerd-raging) with Kinect, a Fender guitar, a new drumset, an iPhone 4 (to replace his "stupid 3gs"), and since he'd just turned 16 his parents gave them their "old" 2009 Toyotta suv (thing is sweet, fully loaded, beautiful). I was like "D--n dude, that sounds like a hell of a haul." His reply:
"Yeah right that car is f---ing gay. My buddy at school's parents got him a Honda S2000, a Burton snowboard, and him and his girlfriend new iPhones, plus they got to go on a cruise for Christmas. I told my parents what car I wanted, they're just cheap." I gave him a verbal beatdown the likes of which he needed to hear, rubbing in just how rough his life is, all the while he's rolling his eyes" Source
"I was at a UN Camp for high schoolers. This girl was b---hing how her 16th got ruined because the BMW convertible she got from her parents was yellow, not red.
As a kid from a poor public school, I just wanted to punch her in the nose" Source
"It wasn't the most expensive of gifts, but my mom bought me a sweatshirt I really wanted for Christmas. I was in my scene kid stage and wanted my clothes to fit tight, so I told my mom to get me a medium even though she'd normally buy me a large. Well, I opened up my gift, got excited when I saw it was that sweatshirt, and then immediately threw a fit when I saw the sweatshirt was a large. I basically threw it on the couch and went "Great, well now I'm never going to wear this". I acted like a d--k the rest of the day and made it a point to not even try the sweatshirt on.
Eventually I put it on in my room and it fit perfectly. I thought about the fact that I had yelled at my mom for something that she bought out of love for me, and didn't need to get me in the first place. I felt pretty f---ing ashamed of myself and gave her a sob-filled apology. I'm always grateful anytime anyone gives me any sort of gift now, even if it's something that I wouldn't in a million years want" Source
"I'm ashamed of it to this day, but I've got a good example of selfishness.
It was Christmas time, and I was 17 and my sister was 14. One of the family friends owns a taxi company, and my parents bought one of his old cabs for $500 as a Christmas present for my sister. I was pissed. I mean, all I wanted was to drive, but couldn't afford a car yet, and here they were buying my sister a car when she didn't even have her learners! I didn't get insulting, but I was pretty unpleasant about the whole thing.
Turns out, they had bought the car for me, and told me that it was for my sister to explain its presence.
Yeah, even thinking about it fills me with shame.
And my parents are such good parents that they'll never bring up my behavior, unless I do first. One of these days, I really have to apologize for how I acted. If I can work up the balls" Source
"My little sister was 16, sexually active with her bf, but would not tell my mom. She calls me one night and tells me that they ran out of condoms and decided to have sex anyway. I told her that she needed to get plan B, or take some of my birth control ( I looked it up and you can take four of the type of pills i had to be as effective as plan b) .
I did not have $55 to give her for plan B, but I did have the extra BC pills that she could have. I told her I would drive them over right then, because the sooner she take the BC the better. My sister agreed with me, so at midnight I left to drive across town to give her some emergency contraception.
As I'm pulling in my parents drive, I get a call from my older sister. My younger sister had called her, and convinced her to spend the $55 on plan B, (the same thing I was bringing her except it was free,) and to call me and tell me not to worry about it.
So my older sister shells out the $55 for pills, and asks my little sister has any money to pay her back. Little sister tells her no. So older sis told younger sis that she can babysit a couple of nights for her to pay off the debt.
Fast forward a week later, my younger sis is watching my niece. (as per the secret between sisters EC debt payment plan.) My niece's dad comes to pick her up, they leave. My dad asks my sister if they paid her for babysitting, my little sister says,
"No, older sister didn't pay me anything for babysitting."
My dad calls my older sis, and tears her a-- about how she a cheap POS sister for not "paying" younger sis for babysitting" Source
"This year for Valentine's day, my brother in law decided to make a weekend of it in Vegas for his wife. He booked a suite at the Rio, couples massages, 2 really fancy dinners, VIP seating at one of the clubs, the whole nine yards.
His wife finds out about the whole thing (but my brother in law didn't know she knew), and decides she wants to make a girls weekend out of it instead. So on valentines day, just as my brother in law is getting ready to take his wife out, she tells him that she cancelled everything but the room and the VIP club seating, and that he should just stay home with the kid because her and her friends are spending the weekend in the room and he's not invited.
Long story short, they're now separated, with a divorce on the horizon" Source
"All that can come to mind is my girlfriend (soon to perhaps be ex). She cooked dinner on Friday night and Saturday after she left for work, I stuck behind and cleaned her entire apartment. Washed all the pots and pans (it was italian so it required a lot to cook it) then went on to clean her whole place. This morning she snapped at me for washing the dishes twice (I didn't know the ones in the washer were already clean) and then I told her, "wow, i guess i shouldnt have washed all those pots, and you're entire apartment too". I have spinal surgery tomorrow (monday) and two severely herniated discs in my back, and it hurt a lot to do it, but I like trying to help her.
I've taken her out for countless nice meals which she ruins with her negativity. The waitress will ask her, 'Do you want another drink?', and she will respond in a b---hy tone, 'I don't know, do I?' and the waitress will just give her a look of confusion. I'm tired of having to apologize for her and leave huge tips because of her c--tyness.
I have surgery on Monday and I CC'ed her on the email to my parents which just states the time and place (my parents are taking me) and all she said that night was "Why did you send me this email?", I said I thought you'd want to know the details, and she said "Pfft, I'm not waking up at 6:30"
F---. I'm ranting" Source
"I went to high school with a spoiled rich kid who complained about the fact the his parents bought him a car and payed for his car insurance, but wouldn't pay for his gas, except to get to school. Everybody wanted to punch him" Source
"I don't even know where to begin on this one.
My little cousin only goes over to my aunts house to play with my other, older, more respectable cousin's xbox. For whatever unGodly reason, my aunt adores this kid, thinks he's just a little genius, and is going to grow up to do great things, isn't even the kids mom my other aunt is, sorry if this is a bit confusing, I have a rather large family), and she can't seem to see what a little brat he is. My cousin and I both see him in jail before he turns 15. Even his sister, my best friend-cousin, hates him.
So anyway. He begs and cries and screams, throwing himself up against the wall tantrums when his mom won't let him come visit my aunt. So finally, she's just like, "whatever, go." So when on the ride home, my aunt tries to do the whole, "he ran away" form of excuse, and say, "None of the computers seem to be working in the area, so you'll have to stay off that. And Brian doesn't have his xbox with him this weekend."
The kid started screaming, about everyone of us he hated. Hated my aunt, hated my mom, hated me, hated Brian, his sister, hated my aunts animals (she owns a farm, and that broke my heart 'cause I love those animals). So my aunt, feelings hurt into oblivion, pushes him off onto my mom. Well, his sister came to stay with us to, 'cause she was something like a sister to me. so we're in my room, door locked so he doesn't come in. He's outisde the door, throwing himself against it, screaming, yelling, crying because he wants to play my xbox.
Up to this point it seems heartless of me to just not let him play but let me explain. He doesn't actually play it. He just presses buttons and messes with the homescreen, deleting my dlc, saves, and one time even my moms profile. Then he just goes online and wastes my points, buying whatever, just because it looked like he could.
Getting back, my mom even starts begging me to just "Please! Let him in!" So I put my xbox up into my closet shelf, and unlock my door, don;t even have a chance to open ir for him as he just busts on through and prances happily over to where my xbox should be, sees it's not there, drops to his knee's, and begins to scream bloody murder once again. I have never wanted to give an embolism to someone so much in my life...
tl;dr My little cousin" Source
