Here is the situation, this is my 5 year anniversary with my company, so therefore they send me a $200 gift card from Tiffany's (honestly I would make better use with a gift card from Target), but anyways use it to buy myself something. When I tell her about it, she gets REALLY mad that I didn't use it to buy her a necklace instead with it. She keeps repeating that I just don't get it...I told her she is being selfish and irrational. I get her plenty of very nice things, jewelry and etc...

Am I being unreasonable here or is it time to end this? Thanks for listening.

You earned it. If you found something you want then tuff cookies for her, and tell her to kiss your ass....

Sounds like you have a real rational thinker on your hands.

Tell her to bust ovaries at her job and she might get a gift card from her employer.

Gee, I wonder what she'll be like when she REALLY gets upset with you. You know, after you get married and she's not worried about impressing you anymore.

Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:07:45 PM EDT
I justwant t know what the hell you found that you wanted
Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:08:09 PM EDT
Of course she thinks you should have bought HER something. It's all about her, her, her!

Boot, curb.
Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:08:56 PM EDT
YOUR company gave YOU a GIFT card for YOUR work. For her to even entertain the idea that SHE is somehow entitled to it is absurd.

You have a problem on your hands and "it's" not the gift card. Whether or not "it" becomes a bigger problem in the future is up to you.

If my wife gets something from work as a thank you, I do not feel entitled to it. It was a thank you from her company and she should enjoy what her company gave her.

I wish it was gift card from Homey D or Lowes, I need a gas trimmer damn it

You are only seeing a small piece of what you would be in for if you married her. You have been warned, don't come back here crying about how bad marriage is because there are a lot of women out there that are NOT like that.
Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:10:52 PM EDT
Women want ANYTHING from Tiffany's just so they can tell their friends "It's from Tiffany's".
Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:12:41 PM EDT
IIWY I would be concerned, at the very least think about something major and how she will react then
Link Posted: 3/22/2006 7:13:04 PM EDT
good-bye

Exactly and thank you...she will not admit to her being wrong, the scary part is that 90% of the time she is the sweetest and most thoughtful women on earth, it's the 10% that might end this relationship.

Sit her down and talk to her. Make sure she understands, its from your work and you earned it. The same should happen if it happened to her. If she cant have a civil conversation about it, then that tells you more about her.

Affording a $40K diamond "easily" is something completely different than reality....

Even if I could afford one, it would be from my cold dead hands....

Just browsed there web site, forgot what a waste of money.

To bad its to late to tell her you sold the card for a $100.00 cash to a coworker. So he could buy his wife something nice.

My wife was happy with a $100 ring and a small wedding we paid for ourselves. 11 years later [almost] she is still the best thing that happened to me.

First wife on the other hand..........................$$$$$$$$, NO nookie was worth THAT much.

Normally I'd agree 100% with you, but this is Tiffany's. How often do most girls have a chance to receive a gift from Tiffany's?

If you guys think this gift card thing is bad, you should have been around 45 years ago when Breakfast at Tiffany's came-out.z

Well, if she is pissy cause YOU spent money that YOU earned on YOURSELF, and she cant get it through her head or even care about it, then damn....

If this IS the deal breaker, make sure she is gone before the cruise so you can get some hot young thang to go with ya.
