This girl got an HP laptop for Christmas. It could be a top-of-the-line machine, but she absolutely hates it. She says the touchpad is too large and it messes up the size of the page you are on. She complained that it is so difficult to use that it nearly brings her to tears every time she uses it.
She felt ungrateful at first. She was having trouble with the audio in her headphones and speakers too. On the upside, @HPSupport tweeted her some troubleshooter tips.
Merry Christmas. Now Leave
There is probably no good day to be evicted, but Christmas day is definitely one of the worst. This person’s landlord served him an eviction notice on Christmas eve. Therefore, he had to choose between giving presents and paying rent.
He bemoaned the fact that the landlord did not wait until the day after Christmas to give him the bad news. Looks like not everyone takes time off for the holiday!
Grandma Got a Pair of Socks
On a normal day, socks are a great gift. But this was a deeply cringe-worthy moment. This person, who goes by datcat2, said her grandmother received a pair of socks from her aunt. But first, she said that her grandma had her legs amputated.
One can only imagine how awkward it was as the aunt gifted the socks. Luckily, her grandmother’s overall health had improved by then. Still terrible, though.
A Car Calendar
In general, a car calendar is not the worst gift to receive, but in this case, it was. A high school boy had saved his money for months to buy a necklace with diamonds for his girlfriend, who is now his ex-girlfriend. She opens it up and jumps for joy.
And then he saw the gift she gave him, the calendar. To make matters worse, his friends brutally ridiculed him for months about it.
The Trolling Uncle
Not him, but his brother. This person’s brother had a bit of a weight problem. His uncle gave him a box of weight loss bars and he felt awkward and embarrassed. How cruel can someone be? Apparently, more than you can imagine.
The boy found a Snickers candy bar and a gift card. The uncle thought he was being funny but he clearly wasn't. This could have been worst. He could have done it the other way round and wrapped a weight loss bar in a Snickers wrapper.
