No, it’s not what you think…I’m not gifting my teenager to anyone…unless YOU want him? Because, seriously, if you do, I just might let you have him.
Seriously, don’t get my hopes up.
Eh, you’d bring him back.
Ok, anyway, why is it soooooooo hard to buy gifts for teenagers that don’t cost an arm and a leg? I tell him to make me out a Christmas list…and what does he do? Lists 5 items that cost more than my entire wardrobe. Cellphone, PS3 game (like he needs another of those), CDs, Ipods, etc. Doesn’t the boy know by now that I’m not made of money? I miss the days when he would be happy with a few hot wheels cars and a soccer ball.
And what does he do after handing me that list? Starts whining about wanting to play the PS3 (he’s grounded), starts mouthing off and screaming and saying how much he hates his family. Wow, and you want WHAT for Christmas? Oh heck no. He’ll be lucky if he gets anything more than socks and underwear!
What is wrong with kids these days? It’s the “gimme gimme gimme, ME ME ME” generation. Entitlement much? I’m thinking it would be good for him to volunteer his time at the homeless shelter, just to show him how very blessed he is. Maybe he will be more thankful for what he does have.
Are you sure you don’t want him?
