Child outraged as parents fail to buy him any Xmas presents for seventh year running

parents 'just a pair of stingy bastards'Josh Cooper, a seven-year-old boy from Chippenham, was described as ‘angry, yet not altogether surprised’ yesterday, when once again his parents failed to buy him a single Christmas present.

‘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.’
