The holiday season is well underway, but as much as we wouldn’t like to admit it, it can take a toll on our wallet. Sticking to a budget can be quite difficult during the holidays, and it’s hard to resist the urge to splurge for that perfect gift – especially when it comes to gifts for children.
However, going against your partner and spending much more than the planned amount on gifts probably wouldn’t score you any points with them, and even though you might believe you’ve won by buying the biggest, most expensive gift, remember that gift-giving is all about the thought.
One dad recently decided to take it to the popular Am I The A-hole subreddit to ask if he was in the wrong for calling his wife a ‘cheapskate’ for giving their children used gifts. Without further ado, we’ll let you read the story below and decide for yourself who is in the wrong here.
Most Redditors agreed that the dad was not in the wrong here. Although most of them said that they find no problem with shopping from the thrift shop, they believe the mom did a pretty a-hole move by returning the gifts he bought and buying stuff their kids don’t want.
