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.

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.

Wow, Is this how low the meaning of Christmas had sunk? These kids should be grateful that they even got something for Christmas.

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.

I seriously would love for them to get reality checks and live in someone elses shoes for a day. I am about ready to give up on humanity all together.

What a bunch of spolied idiots, brats, whatever you want to call them! Get a job, save your money, and get your own phone. BTW, learn to spell CAMARO the right way too! " Waah, I hate my parents, all they gave me for Christmas is a roof over my head, food and love. They suck!"
