This Guy Bought A $300 Gift For His Brother, But His Mother Brushed It Off As A Gift From Santa And Asked For More Money

When faced with the generosity and kindness of others, some people try to exploit the situation instead of showing gratitude. What makes this behavior even worse is that often it’s your friends or family members who do this. Take for instance this Redditor’s mom. After he got his younger brother an expensive gift, she decided that it wasn’t enough. So she convinced his brother that the gift he got was from Santa Claus making him think that his older brother got him nothing for Christmas. Petty, right? Scroll below to read the full story!

He needs to open up a separate communication line with his brother and keep up with him independently from their mother (since she obviously can't be trusted). And also tell him the truth about the Switch.

Receipts and shipping confirmations will reveal all he needs to know about his mother and Santa!

I'm amazed that such a parent could have raised a son with such integrity. I hope he keeps in contact with his brother, he's going to need a strong role model in his life.

I agree. This was pretty infuriating and I really hope the little brother finds out who bought him the Switch

Supposedly, since she states it loudly while talking to him on the phone.
