Talk about petty!
According to anonymous post on Reddit, a mother allegedly reached out to her Secret Santa gifter to both say thank you for her gifts, and ask for another one.
A screenshot of the conversation shows the gift receiver starting out with thanks for the gifts initially, then saying, “So…I know this is kinda awkward…but the spending limit was $50 and I looked online and it seems that the blanket and chocolates only add up to about $30? Do you think it’s possible you could get me something else? My kids have been spending me up the wazoo! LOL.”
The co-worker writes back, “Yeah, no problem. I could just give ya $20 if you’d like. That way you could get yourself and your kids something nice for the holidays!”
The good natured back-and-forth ended there, as the woman responds that she wants her co-worker to buy her a $120 Samsung Galaxy tablet for her kids, and points out that her co-worker is “an engineer” and makes “quite a bit more” than she does, before offering to “just take $120 cash if that makes it easier.”
The co-worker fired back that that was outside of the Secret Santa gift budget, at which time the woman called the person “disgusting” and then asks for the $20– which the gifter then refuses to give.
The alleged text exchange was shard to Reddit where over 2,000 users weighed in on the mom’s gift
