How To Destroy A Child’s Christmas

Step 1: Purchase a very nice gift for his parents and his baby sister. Make sure everyone else’s gift is much larger than the gift you got him.

Step 2: Give him something nice that he can’t use, such as two game cartridges for the GameBoy Advance system when he only has a GameBoy Color.

Step 3: Go to dinner with his family. Wait for the child to get in a better mood.

Step 4: Offer to walk the boy across the street to EB Games so he can pick out something for his GameBoy Color instead.

Step 5: Discover that EB Games does not carry cartridges for older GameBoys.

Step 6: Walk deflated child back to car.

Easy peasy.

    Update: I forgot to mention that I gave the boy’s father the money for the gifts and said I’d return them myself. Turns out, the boy was happy to recieve the cash and all is well.

    That I do, jules. Unfortunately, this is a true story. Last night, I went to my friend’s house and watched his boy open gifts from other people. He was so happy, I got depressed. Uncle Smivey sucks.
