"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
