To be more than a little miffed that she ate my chocolate FX?

3 DCs, so I bought 4 FXs in the 2-for-£4 offer at Sainsbury's. (or maybe it was £5..) Anyway, the lovely, generous children always get me a stocking for Christmas as I do for them so I gave the spare one to the eldest and said "just in case FX is planning on giving me something this year..."

Christmas Day rolls in and as we are waiting on my bed for eldest DD I learn from the other 2 that she got tipsy with a friends the other day and ATE MY CHOCOLATE FATHER CHRISTMAS.

You did say just in case and apparently Father Christmas wasn't planning on bringibg you chocolate this year.

I've never seen "FX" to mean Father Christmas before. I was confused for a bit!

I thought FX meant 'effects', like special effects. I imagined mindblowing chocolate.
YABU for calling it that, and for not just eating the thing if you had bought it for yourself.

Um - she didn't eat yours- she ate hers - yours was in her stocking and she needs to hand it over right now. Or leave home. grin

Seriously? You're moaning over some 2pound chocolate? Really really move on.

I have no idea what FX is

Humph! (sulking in corner at lack of sympathy from some posters here) I don't ask for much - I was looking forward to biting his head off! It's that first heavenly taste of chocolate before I've even got out of bed... I'm going to buy myself a secret one tomorrow.

YABU for using the abbreviation "FX"

My parents eat the grand children's chocolate santas every year and have to go out and buy more.

Glad I opened this or I'd be imaging what chocolate effects could possibly be. Exploding chocolate oranges and fog emitting Kit Kat's perhaps.

If that's the worst thing your DD ever does when tipsy I'd be very happy grin thinks back to own misspent youth

FX! FX! splutters

Do you say 'hun' as well?

I think you need to make it clearer next year that the chocolate Father Christmas is an essential part of your stocking. It looks like your hint this year was too subtle.

My DSis eats the Easter eggs she has bought for her 3 DC and has to replace them. Every year.
