I didn't get what I wanted for Christmas...

Im really not trying to sound like a spoiled brat or anything, but I didn't get what I wanted for Christmas (but I am very thankful for what I received anyways). I asked for clothes, makeup, hair dye, and things of that nature because my family lives 4 hours away from any store that carries clothes. I don't have a license yet and my parents are always at work, so for Christmas I usually get the things I need for the year. They got me an iMac, which is wonderful, but I really don't need that...what am I supposed to do? I'm kind of scared because I don't know if what I have will last more than a month...is it acceptable to ask my parents if I could have what I asked for instead? Please help?

An iMac? That's WAYY better than what you wanted. Christmas is a time for loving and being happy with whatever you get, not complaining how much you don't need the present and what you'd rather have.
Edit: 4 HOURS?! Girl, what's with your head? You're scared that an iMac won't last a month? You've got to be kidding me. If you expect so much from your parents, did YOU get them what they wanted? If you didn't, then did THEY complain? Ungrateful kids, I tell you!

No, the iMac will (I assume), but the things I need like clothes won't last more than a month. I have two shirts and I think they only can be worn a few more times before they turn into rags...

And? Just work and buy it yourself. Have a friend go out with you.

If I was your parents, I'd give you nothing for Christmas for a couple years, that way you'd appreciate something eventually.

I need clothes, I have 2 shirts and 1 bottom. I've worn them for the last 6 years and they're almost completely destroyed.
Report as
I don't fit into ANY clothes anymore, because I am pregnant. I am wearing close that hurt me and I shouldn't be because I am too big for them and they are putting pressure on my stomach, people have it worse than you. Some people have NOTHING. I just think you should think of that a little more

Make use to make something. Old curtain? Make a dress, skirt, or shirt. Practically anything around your house can make clothes.

Yes, clothes are much more important than a computer if that's what you really need.

I am pregnant, and growing out of everything, but you know what? I am still happy with what me & my husband got; Towels, a cooking set, and a candle. I can still appreciate.

I'm not a spoiled brat, I'm thankful for what I did get, but I seriously only have two shirts right now. I would prefer something I needed.

Five people in the county next to me got in a car crash last night, and all five of those people died on Christmas Eve. You should be glad for anything you got, eh?

Maybe they (Your Parents) want you to stop being superficial. Be happy for what you do have. You don't have to have a car, Use that IMac they got you, and order your little possessions. :/ You are so ungrateful.

I understand what you're saying. If you want what you need, you should ask your parents if they can help you out and get clothes. Tell them you love the iMac but you'd prefer something less expensive and for something you desperately need. Good luck :)

Five people in the county next to me got in a car crash last night, and all five of those people died on Christmas Eve. I am sure their family would have given up everything they got, just to see them again. You should really rethink your priorities, & be glad you have anyone period. :/

They abuse me, they just bribe me so I don't call the cops.
Report as
If they use you, I'd sell what they gave you, and buy all that stuff you need. You can call child serves, with or without a Imac, if you don't have any clothes, they will still help you.
Report as
If they neglect you, sell you things, and order stuff offline, as long as you got a mailing address, you can get anything. Do they let you use there cards to order things?
Report as
What exactly is 'abuse' to you?
Report as
To Me? Abuse to me is neglecting your child in any form that you shouldn't. Although I was in a worse situation when I was younger, So I don't know the exact answer for her, I didn't call anyone, but I got out of it. My mother was a drug addict, and went to prison for murder, for drugs, & physically abused us, using us for money. We didn't even have food, so not having a few clothes was nothing to me. I wore one thing in elementary for as long as I could remember until she went to prison, & at the age of seven, I was taking care of my three younger sisters, who were starving because their mother was a drug head and never home, & a lifetime of other things, that no seven year old should have had to, but I always made it work somehow. So I think I have a pretty good idea of 'Abuse'.
