Now, we're not the richest family in the world. But, eh, we do what we can with what we have. So, I'm visiting my parents. I just got here today. My mom came to me and asked me if I could buy them some dinner because they didnt have money. So, of course, I said "SURE!". I went out and bought them food, only to come home and realize they purchased a SHIT TON of alcohol while I was gone. I'm SO pissed. You can buy alcohol, but you can't buy food?! My husband and I don't have unlimited funds, of course. That money could have gone to something else. I just feel like that was so selfish of them and I feel tricked. I almost want to return the food and go home, thats how mad I am. What would you do in this situation?

UPDATE: I just told my mom that I'm pissed because she knows we have tight funds and we have an infant, yet they took advantage of me. And she said "Fuck you bitch."

UPDATE: Packing my shit and going home.

I would just let it go and next time they ask (because they will ask) say no. Do not give a reason as to why you are saying no, but just no. They will get pissed gut at least you know you are not losing money over a lie.

I would take the food and leave and tell them to enjoy their liquid diet.

I would make a few snide comments and not buy them anything again.

I would have served them alcohol for dinner, if that's what they wanna buy then they can have it for breakfast lunch and dinner.
