I saw the look on Double Joker Calvin and Hobbes shirt my Mom’s face. She was heartbroken. Although during the year my Mom very rarely just spontaneously bought us gifts, Christmas and birthdays were the one time where she went all out. She still paid attention to the price of things, but my Mom definitely went crazy selecting exactly the right things, buying them, wrapping them, and putting them under the tree. I exploded. Although I was normally the meeker out of my sister and me, usually a follower instead of a leader, I turned to her and snapped at her. I told her she was being an entitled brat, and how dare she make Mom feel bad after she’d spent so much time trying to make us happy. My sister was shocked. I don’t remember exactly how she responded, but essentially she backtracked, saying that she appreciated what she’d received, she was just upset about the shoes.

Best Double Joker Calvin and Hobbes shirt
She didn’t exactly back Double Joker Calvin and Hobbes shirt down, but I could tell I’d made her rethink her position. That moment didn’t change her, but she was a lot less entitled after it. Over the years she slowly changed. I remember being in University and she came over wearing a cute sweater, and when I commented on it she immediately told me that it had been twenty dollars, but she got it on sale for six. It was a stark contrast to the girl who had once wanted our Mom to buy her a plain white two hundred dollar sweater. Not only had her priorities changed, but she no longer took pride in having other people think her clothes were expensive: she wanted people to know she was a smart shopper, lol.
