My friends daughter´s birthday was last week. I asked them what she would like, and I got her exactly what her mother told me the girl has been wanting for a while. Okay. So far so good. Her birthday comes around, she opens the present (not even all the way,) sees what it is, and starts throwing a fit!! She threw the present against the wall multiple times, yelling "THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANTED! THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANTED! I HATE IT!" Needless to say, I was speechless since I got her what her mom had told me. Her father tried to get her to look at it telling her that this is what she has been asking for but the kid (she is 4) would not stop the hissy fit.
The mom was not there, she had to work but she called me in the evening saying that I should "just return the present and get her something else." Uhm, no. The next day she calls me to tell me that her daughter has changed her mind and she wanted the present now. Not happening either. She proceeded to tell me that her daughter expected MORE for a present but she will settle for what I had gotten her. Are you freaking kidding me?!
Have you ever experienced something like this either with your own children or kids of friends or family? Did you give in or did you just say "screw it," packed it up and took it home or returned it to the store?
