On Thursday before I left for work, I put my boyfriend's Valentine's Day gift on his end table. I didn't really get him much, just a card and a box of his favorite chocolate covered pretzels from a local candy shop.
On Valentine's Day I woke up and went over to his room and we decided to go out for lunch. He didn't mention anything about Valentine's Day, but I didn't think much of it. We went out to lunch at Wendy's and stopped at the auto parts store. When we got home, we sat in the living room and he got his gift and opened it. I could tell that he was pleased that I got him his favorite candy.
He then looked at me and said "I don't have anything for you"
I kind of thought he was joking but then looking at his face I know he wasn't. In what seemed like slow motion, I felt my eyes fill up with tears. I look at him and said "I gave you a list" which I did. I wrote a list of everything I wanted.
He said "I don't know what any of that stuff is"
I said " you don't know what a gift card is"?
He said "I don't know where you shop"
I didn't even know what to say... I guess it would have been too hard to call my mom or my best friend and ask?
I started bawling. I am not a crier. In fact, I can't remember the last time I cried. I started to sob. When he tried to hug me, I told him to get away from me.
When I got to work that night, it was all I could do to keep it together. I was so upset. In fact, I am still upset.
The good news is, my best friend bought me a hoodie and her daughter also bought me a gift which I get on Wednesday. Also, the shop foreman got me a hello kitty tea cup and a few of the mechanics gave me Hershey Kisses.
Ugh, i can't wait to take this all out at PC Fit
