Wow. What a cheapo. But how could you get an armful of clothes for 50$? Do you shop at Goodwill?
A gift card can be used to reduce the total price. In this case, the total would be $50 off and she would only have to pay the remaining amount. $50 off is better than $5 off. The FML doesn't really say if the card was going to pay for all of the clothes. But that's not the main point of the FML...
Besides, people lie - it's human nature. So let's take her "arm full" with a grain of salt. I highly doubt she strolled up to a counter holding like 10 shirts and some jeans and a skirt and expected the gift card to cover it. This seems slightly exaggerated. Also, I've worked retail. Next time have them scan the card before you shop (only takes 10 seconds) or phone in to get the balance. I did that this morning.
I have several preferences...for jeans I like Paper Cloth and Denim or True Religion, for sweaters I like Chanel, since they are one of the few designers that don't make my petite frame look bulky. I get my button down shirts handmade in SF from a tailor, Jimmy Choo boots, and La Perla underpinnings, and of course, Hermes has wonderful bags. One of the nice things about being good-looking is having people buy you lots of gifts. I love that the guys I date (no sex of course, I'm saving myself for Mr. right :) like buying me gifts because they think someone pretty deserves pretty things.
i agree with #56, 51 you are a stuck up bitch no matter what you look like, you probably flirt with guys and convienintly leave out any conversation about your abstinence plan, guys only buy expensive things for girls as a offering of love, they expect the relationship to be serious and to go further if you accept expensive things from them, good looking girls dont deserve expensive stuff for free, you need to commit yourself to a man to deserve the work/effort he does to get you nice things
LOL, you're fucking kidding me right? I'm quite sure the_dod was asking rhetorically when asking what you wear, so one can only conclude that you are actually trying to impress FML'ers with your looks and knowledge of fashion? Yea, let's see how far that gets you here little otter. In case you didn't notice, this isn't eHarmony or a fashion mag looking for an intern. So please, save your pseudo ego for an audience that gives two shits.
I have to say this. I shop at Burlington Coat factory for some items okay. I literally had an arm full plus a hand. I had two pairs of jeans, 1 shirt, a necklace and a pair of shoes for $60. Plus you figure in coupons. Not every female shops high end. To the FML, that sucks, im sorry this guy was a cheap ass. Kick him to the curb if you think that is the right thing to do.
...maybe the sales clerk forgot a zero! go back with the original receipt or credit card statement. he may not be that lame!
