My DPs bought DH and me a penthouse for Christmas. However, it's only got 6 bedrooms and is in Kensington. I specifically said Mayfair and at least 8 bedrooms.
I don't know how they could do this angry

They don't love you enough to find out what you really wanted. Those "nearly" gifts are the worst of all, it's sheer laziness.

Yes, Kensington is wank.

Want to swap it for my glittery carrot?

They're toxic. You obviously need to go NC.

Would you consider swapping for a chalet bungalow in Norfolk that no fucker wants to buy from me ? grin

Call 101 and report it.

King I'll swap your carrot for my (in my view superior quality) parsnip if you like. I bought my DH a funnel of gigantic size and he bought me a present for the first time in 12 years, I nearly fell off the bed!
OP I should go NC with your heartless bastard parents, they don't deserve you!

Call social services!!!!

I have a wendy house i'm trying to offload needs a powerhose at it fancy swapping?

You're awfully entitled. Surely 7 bedrooms would be enough.

MissHooliesCardigan Sat 26-Dec-15 16:59:51

Thanks for your support. What makes it worse is that I made the effort to buy them both a lovely gift pack of toiletries from Superdrug sad

Be kind OP, perhaps they are savings few pennies to buy you a holiday home in Cannes.

KwickNC Sat 26-Dec-15 17:00:29

And they have the audacity to call themselves parents! Terrible humans cut all ties immediately

PopcornFrenzy Sat 26-Dec-15 17:01:44

Wow, your parents are cunts

ElfOnTheBoozeShelf Sat 26-Dec-15 17:03:50

Kensington? They obviously don't give a shit about you.

Andrewofgg Sat 26-Dec-15 17:04:38

Please at least reassure us that all the bedrooms are at least en suite and that there is a flat for the butler's butler.

Shutthatdoor Sat 26-Dec-15 17:05:47

Did they put no thought in at all!

Go NC straight away.

knobblyknee Sat 26-Dec-15 17:08:04

OMFG this is emotionally abusive!!! No Bolly, have this wine

CoteDAzur Sat 26-Dec-15 17:09:48

They sound toxic and controlling.

amysmummy12345 Sat 26-Dec-15 17:10:33

I hope you informed them that they are both the carcass?

LaurieFairyCake Sat 26-Dec-15 17:11:00

Oh god I though you said Kennington !!!

I would have taken it off your hands. But Kensington no way, what a shite hole.

hiddenhome2 Sat 26-Dec-15 17:11:26

Yuck, obviously a pair of narcissists.

Namechangeforthebadstuff Sat 26-Dec-15 17:12:46

I can't comment on whether YABU or not until I know their monthly income. More or less than 2k?

If you can't get over the upset, you'd be totally within reason to turn up at a&e and not move until someone fixes it for you.
