My dad always gets my mom some cheap gifts from Dillards and when she wants to return it she can't because it was on sale. I can't stand it.
Today I told him to get her something from COACH for Mother's Day. I told him why and he got all mad. Now I don't know what to do because now he's mad at me.
Please help me, The Regreter
Maybe your father cannot afford to buy an expensive gift for your mother. The price of the gift or where it was bought has nothing to do with the thought behind it.
I could understand your feeling if he forgot but not the price of the gift your father bought. No matter if your mother likes or does not like the gift, I am
sure she understands. His take may not be your mother's or yours.
Don't criticize the gift with your mother. Mind your own business. Your parents will work it out their way. And you will have learned a lesson.
