FML - The follow-up

Today, I was opening a present my boyfriend got me for my 21st birthday. What I unwrapped was a Kay jewelers box. Excited, I opened it to find a ring made out of a one dollar bill. FML

AkGirl1991 Say more :
This is the poster, and actually I had bought him a promise ring on valentines day. He used the box I gave him....I just thought. I might have been getting one in return. And no, I am not materialistic or ungrateful, and I know he can afford it. Just got my hopes up. If he had JUST given me the ring, it would have been great.

Well he had to have gotten the box for buying something from Kay, so maybe the ring will come out later and he just wanted to see your reaction and if you were excited or not :)

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a surprise. You have to be a smart fuck to make a ring dollar. So maybe he did think ahead... Don't get any of your hopes up though OP.

Or maybe she should realise its the thought that counts and she shouldn't be expecting anything else! Women these days are all about expensive stuff makes me sick

Yeah, or it's just a box. And if you really want to make the OP feel bad, we could say that most likely her boyfriend gave the ring to some other woman ;)

Well thought out handmade gifts are always more charming than some overproduced, overpriced piece of jewelry from some crappy vendor like Kay. (I don't like the stuff at all, so there is my bias.) This was not really a well thought out handmade gift, but perhaps he has something else planned. It's certainly funny anyway.

It's funny? For a 21st birthday? It's okay if he can't afford an expensive gift, but he shouldn't then trick her into thinking that's what she's getting. It wasn't funny at all.

I don't know what you have against Kay but all my jewelry that my husband's ever bought me is from there. My wedding/engagement ring, his wedding and engagement rings (yes he had an engagement ring too), then a bunch of necklaces and other stuff. It's all really nice stuff too.
