“After finishing dinner, she opened the gifts that she received,” he said. “I didn’t really think much of it and went along with it. My girlfriend bought her a nice watch, and she seemed to like it.”
“When I gave my gift, everybody, for some reason, seemed stunned, and the friend was really happy about the tickets. Apparently, they are all pretty big fans of the artists, and the tickets weren’t easy to come by.”
“For some reason, my gift became the topic for the rest of the night. Some of the friends started joking that they wanted to become my best friend so that I could buy them gifts. I didn’t really think much of it because it really just seemed that they were joking around.”
When the night was over, he and his girlfriend got in the car to drive back to her place, and he could tell that his girlfriend was really angry.
He asked his girlfriend if something was wrong, and she lost it on him. She accused him of humiliating her in front of every single one of her friends because he bought her best friend a “better gift” than she had purchased.
He then asked his girlfriend to clarify what she meant, she said that he “made her look cheap with the gift she gave.”
He’s left wondering if he really did something wrong. What do you think?
