Today, my girlfriend came home and announced that she'd just bought a $40 pair of flipflops. She then declared that I wouldn't be getting a birthday gift this year due to budget shortfalls. For hers a month prior, I'd got her a $300 piece of jewelry. FML

Wow you people know nothing. Why would you give her jewelry for her birthday? It is the most THOUGHTLESS gift a man can give a woman. Anyone can give a girl some expensive shiny rocks.

Beside. $40 dollars for sandals IS NOT expensive, especially durable leather ones (like rainbows... which cost more than $40!) Some people prefer durable sandals that last longer than shoes. Maybe if she spent $400 pair of shoes, I'd feel sorry for you. It isn't EVEN your birthday yet and you are already complaining! Asshole. YDI for giving her jewelry. No wonder why she doesn't take birthdays seriously. Douchebag.

Hey, the computer screen sure does make some goldfish obsessed teenage dork very brave. You could stand to follow the advice gallingly advertised on your own silly profile.

how the hell is it the most unthoughtful thing to give a woman? sure anyone can buy jewellery but you can say that for any gift. i personally love getting it, i'd rather a lovely necklace than something i'd never use or wear! i wear them everyday. so no he doesn't deserve it, how do you know that it wasn't something she wanted hm?

Dude....NOTHING wrong with getting something for your birthday. Even a giftcard would have been nice, but this girl decided that $40 flipflops were more important, even after he'd given her such a nice gift for her own birthday before.

I didn't even know flipflops could get that damned expensive!

@15 maybe she bought those colourful havaina slippers from Brazil. They are unfeasibly expensive. And yeah a gift card for $20 would have sufficed. what a B!tch

Dump her.

She can buy a $40 pair of flip flops that she doesn't need, but can't get you a birthday present?

Wait on second thought, don't dump her - just tell her that you want your present to be a threesome with her hot friend.

This is a prime example of what is commonly referred to as a selfish bitch. Also, a stupid one. Claiming money problems after showing off a new purchase isn't very convincing
