Merry arsing christmas you upper class gits

It's Christmas again, and buying gifts equals bigger expenditures, that and certain families expect their yearly free stuff that they shouldn't come to expect it because they are GODDAMAN GIFTS YOU SOD, I GIVE YOU THEM WITHOUT YOU NEEDING TO ASK. While those who have high bloody incomes have the income that would support both paying the bills and for materialistic crap we force ourselves to buy on "special events", building PC's is not a high income job, especially since Tasmania - where I live - has a huge deficit and the highest unemployment rate in the entirety of Australia.

Some people might say OH BUT WHERE'S YOUR CHRISTMAS SPIRIT YOU GRINCH? It evaporated as debt made its presence known. If I wasn't drowning in the Tasmanian debt that I'm getting sick of (which is also causing the greater percentage of Tasmania to be lower/working class slaves), I'd be able to enjoy Christmas because I'd be able to spoil myself with a brand new PC that I've been planning to build for the greater part of this year.

tl;dr I'm butthurting again because I'm stuck with a middling/low income, stuck in the asscrack of Australia, and stuck in a ever plummeting financial income and I'm getting jealous of all the lucky ducks that slaved their lives away to not be in debt.

I'm an indie game designer and a PC builder. I'm not a goddamn lawyer or some other high-class high-income earning work slave. :stare:

Maybe you should find other poor folks to celebrate christmas with so that you won't be the only one who can't afford gifts. Fortunately, you can even have barbecue and go swimming even.

I'm a cleaning lady and I've managed to buy a present for both my parents and my sister. And do you know why? Because I'm raised in an environment where we don't expect 500 Euro presents and are happy to receive 5 Euro gifts because it's about the SYMBOL OF GIFTING in stead of receiving a huge ass present.

You could write them all each a personalized letter about what the spirit of Christmas means to you and how they've personally made an impact in your life. It's something worth framing as it is definitely a great way to remind people how much you care about them. And they can display it year-round.

If in the end, all they can think about is material or pricy gifts, then THEY are the Scrooge/Grinch.

Best of luck.

When my mom came home and found out my family ate majority of the ice-cream she said we were only getting food for Christmas. We all just said ok.
Food is the answer....

My family themes our Christmases so they can be cheap for everyone. We've done homemade/thriftstore, stocking stuffers (Which was done to allow for a wide range of prices), and food (so that it would actually be used). This year is paper.

I bought one thing to make all of my side of the family's gifts. I made ornaments. It probably turns out to be less than a cent per gift. The wrapping is costing me more money than the gifts.
Last year I made fudge and packed it in tins I got at the dollar store. I actually did it for my husband's family, too.

There is nothing worse than being forced by my mother to buy a gift for my greedy selfish hateful grandmother. I do it out of respect for my own mother but that woman... My grandmother likes to pick favorites among the family. Me and my brothers have never been in that exclusive group because we respect and love our mother dearly and wouldn't bitch about personal things to the GM. I can hardly afford much this Christmas with my low wage but it takes the cake that, that woman expects it every year and if we didn't get her anything she'd be on the phone that very day crying about how her grandkids who she sees maybe once every two years don't love her. Also she's well off and here's the thing, She never gets anyone anything for Christmas. Ughhhh....

Gee, at least drawing requires time and effort into making the present. Too bad she can't see it as something that shows you care more then if it was just a shop bought present which requires little to no effort to look for and buy
