I can't stand being guilt tripped into buying things for people when money is so hard for me to come by, and it can be so tuff to figure out what to get my parents. With my dad it's the old case of "what do you get the guy who has everything?" my mom on the other hand can be really pissy and complains a lot about not wanting so much junk. I almost want to call her a minimalist, She loves tossing out stuff (even when they're not her's).
I for one don't want any of the few things they usually get me, there's not really much that can be bought locally that I'd want. Whenever they do get me something, it's usually junk that might seem nice but I've got no use for, like a portable dvd player (I can just use my laptop, and I've got very few dvds anyway becuase I download everything) or ugly Ford Driver cloths, What the hell do I want nigger sneakers for or t-shirts made to look used and 'trashed'? I'd rather they not get me anything so I wont have to get them anything, just like on our birthdays.
