MomLovesClassics Posted December 21, 2010 Share Posted December 21, 2010 I counted my chickens before they hatched. I depended on our regular Christmas bonus that we get every year. Only this year there is no Christmas bonus. I am in tears because I have no money to get my son a gift. He just graduated college, and got his lieutenant rank. I didn't get him a gift for that, and now can't afford a Christmas gift for him. My husband's boss who is also his brother didn't bother to inform us until last week. My husband has took his guitar to work intending to sell it at a pawn shop. I am disappointed because we took our savings and got gifts for one kid and a head start on the other, so now gifts are unbalanced. We ordered everything for one child, got one thing for the other child, and nothing for the oldest. It is too late to send things back and get a refund to balance things out. I am so embarrassed, but I plan to call my aunt and ask that she buy my son a gift so he will have something. He didn't ask for much, he asked for a sweater. I don't care that my husband or I will not have a gift this year but I just want my son to have something. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
