Breaking my hw hiatus because I need to rant and I trust you guys and I just want to cry
so WARNING SAD RANT BELOW


So for christmas I got my dad this really nice Redskins sweatshirt. When I found it, I was like "SCORE!" because it was on sale and it's really hard to find Redskins merch here because they are from the complete other side of the country. But the sale sticker was blocking part of the size without me realizing it. So it was actually a XXL instead of a XL. I got a gift receipt, in case it was too big (since my dad was doing really well on losing weight). But today he brings me to go and return or exchange it, but we can't because 1) it has been over a month since I bought it and 2) apparently they don't let you do returns or exchanges on sale items. If I had realized that, I would have paid more attention to the size. And it wasn't like they had a bunch of different sizes of that style, it was just the one. So we couldn't just exchange it for a different size. Apparently it was on sale because they were trying to get rid of it.

So now my dad is pissed because he has a sweatshirt thats too big and he is complaining about it right in front of me. And I'm upset because I spent $60 on a nice sweatshirt that he can't wear and I know I ******** up with the size but he's making me feel even worse. He said he appreciated the thought, but it's also really obvious he is more upset about the fact that he now has what he sees as a useless piece of clothing. I tried telling him that he could take it to a tailor or something to get it taken in, but he looked at me like I was crazy. He obviously didn't think he should need to do that. He even went to far to suggest that I should sell it on ebay or give it to someone else. I guess I am the most upset over the fact that he doesn't actually seem to appreciate the gift. Like, hey, my daughter got me this really nice sweatshirt. Yeah, the size is wrong and I can't exchange it, but it was a thoughtful gift from my loved one, so I don't mind. I am thankful for it and will do my best to make it work. And I would make sure she knows that I still like it, because it is a gift from her.

I just...can't deal with this right now. I make myself feel terrible enough as it is, I really don't need my dad to add to it.

It seems so silly that he'd be upset over it being too big.
I mean, better that the sweatshirt is bigger than smaller (even if he's losing weight).

I'm sorry.

Rule one of getting a gift...never ever complain about it in front of who gave it to you!!
