Here's the only person in the world who didn't get an iPhone for Christmas
Ah, Christmas! The celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ giving hope to Christians and a peaceful family gathering, if we are to believe what’s thought to be the common perception. 

But look no further than on Twitter and the peaceful family holiday seems to have broken the hearts of countless teenagers. Why? It’s because they didn’t get an iPhone or an iPad. And we’ve all experienced that - not getting what you wished for, but it’s the reaction that baffles us.

“No Iphone. I hate my dad,” Twitter user Paul Reyes posted.

"My parents are the worst mother f***ing parents in the work f**k you mom and dad for not getting me a iphone. F**K YOU. FML. #iphone," another user was devastated.

“My mom only got me diamond earrings, odd future jacket, 30$,” 16-year old Bernard Barefield, of Collinsville, Illinois, wrote. 

And these three were not the only entitled individuals in the world that had their Christmas ruined. Check out a selection of tweets by angry Twitter users who got sad, cried, cursed their parents and their lives just because they didn’t get an iOS device. The idea of retweeting all of the angry Christmas iPhone tweets came from comedian Jon Hendren:

"I was visiting my family," Hendren said for TechCrunch. "They'd all gone to be somewhat early on Christmas Eve night, and I was lying awake playing with Twitter's search function on my iPhone. ... Nobody I was following was tweeting much of anything at the time, so I didn't feel too bad about flooding my timeline.

"I think I did about 40 or 50 before people started posting fake tweets, which made it harder to find real ones among the search results, so I cut it off probably around noon on Christmas morning. There are probably even better real ones among all the fake ones out there by now, but it's too hard to tell."

Now, on the flipside of things, we could say that on Christmas day iOS and Android activations skyrocketed 353%. But really nothing says it better for Apple consumer demand and brand awareness than those shamelessly ungrateful tweets. Check out Jonathan Mann’s song dedicated to the feeling of being the only one who didn’t get an iPhone/iPad/car for Christmas and an interesting comment to all of that.

What a massive evidence to my claim: World has gone crazy and stupid!
Are there any (will for) diversity in this world left?
Anyone still tries to be original?
Anyone with brains?

I knew a lot of teens these days were completely f**kd over but Damn...

My Dad got me mom an iPad but I'm not jealous and i certainly don't rant on Twitter about not getting one.

What gets me the most about this is that some people actually DID get an iPhone, but why would you have to shoot yourself for getting a black iPhone over a white one

Ungreatful bastards, they should all be shot.

It mainly comes down to expectations built by parents and the brand identity of Apple. Obviously the kids had been catered to beforehand by their parents so they expected more of the same. And of course an iPhone is a status symbol like owning a car. It plays out much like Cartman's behavior on South Park's Human Centipad episode.

Now, while it may not be entirely their fault they're being completely ungrateful pieces of s**t, that doesn't make me want to bitchslap the piss out of them any less.

I know what you mean. These kids are delusional & frankly disrespectful. I can see why their parents didn't get them their iPhones. Look at what they are posting. Some of these kids say they hate their parents, some even go as far to curse them out.

I think Sniggly is right & this might be their parents faults. I do sense that these kids are spoiled. I mean read their posts. They sound like what Bluesky02 said "Apple's Zombies". These are the future i$heeps.

Sniggly I am with you, I am for the bringing of these children back to reality. I prefer the "baby powder" b*tch slap/back hand to the face technique. These kids need to be knocked off their high horse. What is sad is that they want to be like everyone else, carbon copies no originality. NOT me, I prefer to be original & not part of the Apple iPhone motley crew.

If Apple fans are anything like those kids, then count me out. Doesn't taco50, 530gemini, & gallitoking kind of sound like those kids when the post here on PhoneArena.com? Just thinking out loud! :-)

Damn, unappreciative, kids. Just want something because all their friends want or have one.

The good thing to come out of this, is that it proves us old people right. It's not the product, It's the status symbol it brings. I dare anyone to ask these young kids why they want one. It might surprise people that it's not because of what it can or can not do.

Obviously these "kids" don't know what Christmas is all about. Go to some third world countries and see what they get for Christmas... Probably a used flat soccer ball and ripped t-shirt! Ungrateful brats, Christmas is all about giving, not getting. Wonder what they bought for their parents???

Christmas is about getting together with your family and loved ones, not about getting stupid gifts you won't care about in a year. I have lost a lot of my family and would give anything to be able to see them again. These fools sicken me like no other, I know they don't mean it but COME ON. How can you say you hate your parents over a stupid gift you wanted to get? They gave you life, feed you, house you, support you. My mom's health is fading away and you want to cry and whine over a phone. REALITY will come faster than you think and when it does, having a damn iphone will be the least of your worries.

My christmas present this year was a lot of family drama and my grandfather dying the next day. Not getting a new gadget should be the least of these idiot's worries. Appreciate what you have, anything you might get, and spend time with your family.

This post has made me reckon tht PhoneArena seems to be a PR wing of Apple.They keep posting ''news'' very frequently that glorifies iPhone in someway or the other.

for eg :- i) Police uses iPhone to lure criminals or ii) 92% of mobile shopping is done on iPhones and i Pads or iii) A gallon of gas could power your iPhone for 20 years etc etc.
I have no problems with the ''news'', but somehow the articles are in a manner tht they are written and properly planted in articles section seems like a PR activity for APPLE.

Actually I'm quite happy with what I got for Christmas this year; especially the vacuum cleaner and socks. Some kids have no concept of what it means to work for what you have, and it absolutely pisses me off.

Such a shame that their Christmas is defined by whether or not you have an Iphone under the tree!! Although I dont care for the iPhone, its like thats the only phone we have in this world.

im glad that i dont have the iPhone anymore. No disrespect to Steve Jobs, but i dontlike his products because their not as universal as Android or even Blackberry. I dont like the fact that you have to do everything thru iTunes

Im glad that im not their parents cause if they were that ignorant to me........im taking ALL of their stuff back!!!! lol

Galliotking, the kid who got a roof over his/her head is indeed lucky. True, their parents worked and fought for it but the kid sure is lucky. Its not his/her hard work or decision that got the kid to be born in such a family.
An if its a conscious decision to berate and curse your parents (as your post suggests that life is only about decisions) then i can hardly say that its a sound decision.
Could i just ask - What phone do you own??

OK, I'm pretty sure a lot of them, perhaps the majority, is sarcastically mocking the rest. And I'll have a hard time trusting anyone who suggests my view of human nature isn't cynical enough. It is.
