    Haha. It was a few years ago. I used it as a tray to put my plate on when I ate while sitting on the couch.

    Default Crap xmas presents - vent here

    Come on VP! You know I respect you a lot but you seem to be particularly argumentative and prickly in the last couple of weeks. I hope you're alright.

    That whole 'if you say it expect to get called on it' thing is BS. This is an open forum for people to share how they feel. You make the choice to 'call people' on things, or to let things slide. Don't put that on other people. You own it. It's hard to see what the point of doing it is at times, apart from to enjoy the debate, or to enjoy being contrary or something. I don't know.

    Sometimes you 'calling people' on things adds negativity to a thread that I consider to be unnecessary, especially one like this. How much damage is it actually doing to vent in a thread like this? Do people have to qualify what they write with a whole disclaimer that they know there are people struggling?

    Have you seen my thread about my holiday vents? I know that most of that is unimportant cr@p. I know I have a fortunate life, I know that the things that upset me are small. But I dump them there because for whatever reason, the things I write about upset me, and I value having the opportunity to let them go without the conflict that would arise if I couldn't do it here. There are threads and threads here where someone could say 'why are you complaining about this? It's minor! I don't care why should you? Why are you being such a whinger?' Sometimes I look at something that someone has complained about and think 'wow, you don't know how lucky you are.' I get that. It doesn't mean it's up to me to criticize them. Doing so totally devalues their feelings. For someone people getting a crap Xmas gift from a loved one has so much context and meaning behind it that it is very upsetting, and rightly so.

    I can see both sides of this argument.
    As a person that seriously thought at one at stage some of kids would end up with nothing at all. Normally we are the only ones to buy for my kids. I can really see how someone venting that they got a Google play/itune/kmart/woolies card would hurt. Seriously hurt. My kids would seriously think they were in heaven if they got one. So I can see why when your already super stressed out it could be the last straw. Also put yourself in place of someone that agree to a certain spending limit and than for some unknown reason couldn't give what they wanted like me. Should we add to their stress and guilt because they fall on hard times. As much as you would like to think you know their fincanal position. You don't. Unless you have access to all their bank account and bills. I know quite a few families that look rich but are one big bill away from huge trouble.

    On the other hand there have been some heart breaking stories here and there have been some real what the... ones.


    So if someone post on either side hurts or annoys you maybe look give them some grace and move on and not attack.

    Right you lot. Don't make me come in here. I really can't be bothered cleaning this thread- I'm still in a food coma from yesterday!
    But if I have to start scrutinising posts to look for infractions, edits and selections then so help me I will!
    And I may just use the crappy selfie stick df received yesterday to take a pic of myself doing so and upload it.
    (See what I did there? Crap present mention. Although to be fair, it was a joke present)

    Spirit of Bubhub, respect others feelings and think twice before posting, yeah?

    Ta.

    My 6 & 4 y/o's got 3 pieces of "White Christmas" slice from their Aunty. The slice is delicious to me, weird to the kids. My SIL/BIL live in a $1million dollar house and are not hard up for money, they just hate that kids get so much stuff for Christmas so they are making a point. It cracks me up. I continue to spend around $75 on their kids and my kids get slice! If they don't want to buy presents for my kids, and don't want me to buy for their kids then they should tell me, not be passive aggressive about it.
