    Christmas time is a great opportunity to resurrect inter-family beefs.

    I have a standing gift rule. I don't want clothes. I have tons, I can afford any new stuff I want, and nothing anyone buys ever fits right or has a style I like. Growing up, clothes were the worst gift... and as an adult, I enforced my "no clothes" rule with a reminder every year. One year, for some reason, I got almost all clothes... and while I am usually too polite to say I didn't like a gift, when asked to set aside anything I didn't like or didn't fit, I put it all in the pile - being irritated that everyone had spent $$$ on shit I didn't want and would never use.

    Upon reminding a sibling of the no-clothes rule, an argument erupted today - with him saying I am ungrateful. It pissed me off, because my younger brother always got EVERYTHING growing up. Never wanted to get a job, and took stupid hippie jobs like camp counselor and tour guide while me and my sister started working from 11yrs old and were constantly employed since.

    I am guessing being the child who was most often shit on is a common thing... so was anyone else here the black sheep and did it make you as bitter as me? Or were you the golden child of the family? And if so... FUCK YOU!

    I am the middle too. Middle children get dicked over. Parents fawn over their first born... and the last born is always spoiled the most.

    I am the youngest of 7. 5 older brothers, 1 older sister. My mother was a wonderful woman, my father not so much. Christmas was always THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR. They were fair to us and I always got at least a few things I wanted.

    I had a dysfunctional childhood like most of us but I can say honestly Christmas was fun, fair and loving. the other 364 days, however....

    Inheritance...my sister got about $1.8 million and I got about 100K. My mother was a control freak and I 'disobeyed' her while my sister danced to her tune. Oh well...its about 100K more than I had before.

    I am the last of 9 so the upside is I was spoiled.

    Downside is I get to watch all of my family die before me.

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Parents were scrupiously fair. We all got socks, underwear, a pair of pants, a shirt, a sweater, and one toy item every Christmas.

    You mean back in the 70's, before Walmart came along and took all of Oreck's business?

    I usually got more for Christmas than my sister, but my mother was much less strict with her when it came to hanging out with friends and shit like that. She probably felt guilty about never letting me do anything with friends, so she transferred that guilt into more gifts.

    My uncle (dad's side) had a real cunt for a wife who had it in for me because their son, who was my age, didn't quite measure up. For a couple of years they gave my older brother a great gift and me something crappy. After about the third go-round of this, my dad gave them both gifts back and kicked them out of our house on Christmas day.

    Fuck you, Aunt Patricia, wherever you are.
