Christmas is a time for love, appreciation, and togetherness, but for one family, it has turned into a battleground. A 40-year-old father found himself in hot water when his 17-year-old son called him out for not appreciating his stepmom. The father, who works long hours, leaves most of the housework and Christmas shopping to his wife, Kate. But when it comes to buying her a gift, he consistently drops the ball. After years of hurt feelings, his son, Jake, finally confronted him about his lack of appreciation. 😥🎁
