No iPhones for Christmas brings out worst in kids


(CBS) - Shh. Do you hear that? It's the sound of kids cursing at their parents for not buying them an iPhone, iPad or car for Christmas.

Comedian Jon Hendren retweeted a series of bratty complaints after not receiving their desired presents. The results are a disappointing look into the state of this holiday season.

There were several "F-Us" to moms and dads for not springing for the luxury items. At a time when we're dealing with a struggling economy, the reactions are a little unbelievable.

"Didn't get an iPad for the second year in a row. I'm never celebrating Christmas again," tweeted @supermattu. Aww. Poor baby.

"I'm f***ing pissed where is the god damn ipad I asked for!!!.[sic]" exclaimed @tef_LON_don. Perhaps it's with that missing question mark, grammar king.

"If I don't get an #iphone for christmas I'm gonna make my dads life a living helllllllllll," tweeted @ashiff. Mission accomplished?

Well, I certainly love iPhones and iPads, but Apple didn't carry me around for 9 months. Shaking my head at this first world problem.

There is a silver lining to this story, however, musician Jonathan Mann created a hilarious song called "WTF?! I Wanted an iPhone!!!" with Hendren's retweets. Instant classic.
