Child outraged as parents fail to buy him any Xmas presents for seventh year running
‘I blame myself for thinking this year might be different,’ Josh confessed, ‘every year, my aunties remember to get me something, my three-year-old twin brothers remember, even great-grandma who thinks daddy is an American sailor she met when she was a little girl remembers, but my parents? Nothing. And they’re swanning around totally oblivious to it being a problem! I tell you, if it wasn’t for the XBox Kinect, Iron Man toys and new bike from Santa it would not have been a very merry Christmas at all’.
”What a lucky boy!’ they say, ‘you’ll have to write thank you letters’ they say…Well I tell you two people who won’t be getting a letter, and are definitely off next year’s Christmas card list,’ the infant school pupil complained. The obvious Christmas neglect by his parents topped off a year that had already seen them fail to get him so much as a bag of Cadbury’s Mini-Eggs at Easter, and an incident during which Josh woke up to find his father with his hand under his pillow apparently attempting to steal his £2 coin from the Tooth Fairy.
‘And to think I went to all the effort of making a balsa wood snowman earrings for Mum when she goes out, and got Dad a really cool Spongebob Squarepants tie that he can wear to work at the funeral parlour,’ bemoaned Josh, ‘Some people don’t know how lucky they are.’Click to send this story to a friend
