Oh, to be a kid again

Buying christmas presents used to be fun when you were young and weren’t expected to ge anything that nice, but as an adult it kind of loses its allure. Now that I am a grown adult with a steady job people expect you to get something from them. I have a rather large family, and I am also a people pleaser. As you can imagine, this is a recipe for a disaster. My mom and dad have been complaining about their heating and cooling unit not working every single time that I would talk to them on the phone, so I decided that for christmas I would get them a brand new heating and cooling unit. Once Christmas finally rolled around and my mom and dad opened their gift from me, their jaws dropped so fast they nearly hit the floor. A brand new state of the art heating cooling unit was the last thing they were expecting, especially from me. They were super happy and wouldn’t stop hugging me. Then came their next present, and they opened it to find my sister had also thought it would be nice to get them a brand new heating and cooling unit. This was then followed by a few seconds of confusion and awkward silence It sucks when you have to spend tons of money during the holidays, but it is even worse when it was a waste of money due to duplicate gifts. I hope that the HVAC company has a decent return policy, because one of us will be needing it!
