When this woman is annoyed with her family, she asks Reddit:

"AITA because I don’t want to go home for the holidays because I feel I’m being used?"

Normally every year I fly back home (~2000 miles) for a couple weeks to spend time with my parents and siblings.

It’s a pretty expensive trip because the ticket cost me usually around $800-$1000, I’m buying gifts for all of my family members, which is about 15 people, and I have to pay for my own stuff while I’m there, things, such as groceries, travel, going out to eat, etc.

Overall since I moved away, I’ve spent roughly $3000 each time I go back. Sure I could just skip out on getting everybody gifts and hoping me being there to celebrate and spend quality time is enough but unfortunately my presence is not enough for them.

They want gifts too. Not only that I stay with my parents and my two siblings that still live at home. So for the duration of my stay there, I’m typically sleeping on the floor, or a sleeping bag.
