  • I don't know. I generally order what I want. A couple of boxes came by UPS yesterday morning and my husband was like "Haha Merry Xmas!"

  • Because they are children. They should be happy that they at least got something; many don't.

  • This is a holy day and it isn't put into perspective, most people are losing their cool, which is why I see my d/h's friend have him call to come see him ONLY on this day each year. His bff (I'll call him) doesn't have a thing to do together with him any time, ever. But when it's today each year, he's on that phone, and d/h is running fast out the door, to just go kooky over this. Something somehow isn't right with that. They are only 25 mi apart.

  • Because they are so willing to let others pay for what they want so they don't have to buy it themselves then get upset when someone doesn't get them exactly what they want. Anyway that's how it is with my grown stepchildren they don't want to work thus can't afford anything thus wanting everyone else to buy it and support them

  • I guess I'm lucky, but I haven't actually seen an adult complain because they didn't get what they wanted for Christmas..
