The Great Gift Debate: Ungrateful or Justified? 🤷

So, our baking enthusiast had their heart set on a high-end KitchenAid stand mixer, but when a family member offered to buy them a cheaper model as a birthday gift, things got a little tense. The protagonist suggested the family member could contribute the cost of the lower-priced mixer towards the desired model, but this suggestion was met with anger. Ultimately, they chose no gift at all, sparking a debate among their relatives about whether they were being unreasonable, spoiled, or a jerk. Let's see what the internet has to say about this gift-giving dilemma... 🎁💬
