For kids enduring Christmases of old, the crushing disappointment associated with opening unwanted presents was later shared with close friends beyond the earshot of adults.
However, moaning about the despicable mistakes made by unloving parents and other out-of-touch relatives has now become a trending topic on Twitter.
Specifically, ungrateful tykes everywhere have been using the micro-blogging platform to bring their whining discontent to the world—for which they deserve the shaming they’ve subsequently received from comedy writer Jon Hendren (@fart).
“I’m still depressed over the fact that my mom ordered the while iPhone 4S instead of the black one for me,” tweeted the astonishingly ungrateful azwan azni on December 25.
We sincerely hope the mother in question saw this post, promptly returned said iPhone, and bought herself something pretty with the cash.
“welp my christmas is pretty much ruined,” offered poor unfortunate nicole rose, “im not getting my car till after tomorrow. so much for a car with a big red bow in the driveway.”
“If i wake up tomorrow, open every present & there is NO iphone, I’m knocking over our Christmas tree and moving out,” declared jenny majamaki on Christmas Eve.
Hendren apparently spent much of his Christmas Eve and Christmas Day idly seeking out and retweeting bitter messages from miserable kids after taking advantage of the Twitter search function.
Time well spent, we say. Especially if it highlights exactly how spoilt and shallow people have become in this ugly consumerism-driven society of ours. Shameful.
Here are a few more, just to hammer the point home:
“No Iphone,” offered a distraught Paul Reyes. “I hate my dad.”
“I wanted a car, I got a computer,” wept Chris Bauer, “how’s that for being born under a bad sign.”
“returning my kindle fire and getting an iphone… this is bullshit,” exclaimed Sydnie Cook.
