Ok, so my brother is a typical male. He only hears what he wants to hear.
He totally does not remember the conversation we had about getting a gift certificate for garden thins for the folks. He honestly thought we were only getting them a dinner out.
He and his wife both have really good paying jobs. They own a house and multiple vehicles. They have no kids but 2 dogs.
I am a single mom with no help from my son's father. I do make an ok amount of money but not enough to buy a house. I own one vehicle that I'm still paying my folks for.
And I am supposed to be the one paying for my parents present from both of us???? Yeah, I don't think so.
I do believe he is going to go off and get them a gift certificate for either Lowes or Menards. At least he better. If he can go buy himself a 32 inch flat screen tv when they already have 3 tvs that work just fine and dandy, I think he can afford to spend some money on our folks. Especially when you think about the fact that I'm the one that had my tv die on me and I replaced it with an old console tv that my folks got out of the garbage. *sigh*
