    I didn't see it like that, it's the latter.
    I didn't hang around to see a reaction, after opening the door to see what he did I was like :O and went upstairs.
    It's okay now, stupid me.
    :')
    Wanted opinions before I reacted tbf
    Glad things worked out

    Seriously? This is a topic? Don't people usually save this sort of thing for their diaries?

    He definitely should be grounded for at least a month. No pocket money too.

    I'm sure he was just too excited, I think that's quite sweet actually :lol:

    But yes, I'd tell him off.

    So, normally I spend around £20 on my Dad at Christmas, usually just get him a tshirt or something from Next and then some Lynx.

    This year, as he gives me quite a bit of money, I thought it'd be nice to "spoil" him, or at least show him how much I appreciate all he does for me.

    So I brought him The Pacific box set, three cans of Lynx, some The Body Shop face washes and shaving gels and some socks from Next.

    I placed them under the tree just, and he ripped them open.

    Yet everyone else here is waiting until tomorrow, we've never once opened our presents early, Mother and everyone else is waiting until Christmas.

    I know it's pedantic of me, as some people won't even be able to eat on Christmas, let alone send gifts and this is minor compared to that.

    But in context, is he in the wrong for doing this? I've gone to my room, i've not shouted or anything as to no spoil Christmas.
    But it's upset me.

    (The boxset was rather hard to get hold of too, I went to three HMV's, and all only had the cardboard edition in stock until I managed to find two tin editions)

    EDIT: Just went back down, he's grateful etc, so good I guess
    It's lovely you brought all those things for your Dad. That shows you care a lot about him.
