A Nigerian lady simply known as Kemi, has said she no longer buys gifts for men due to what she observed which is that they are unappreciative.
She took to her Twitter page and shared past experiences with two of her former boyfriends in a bid to drive home her point.
Kemi said she bought a shirt for one of her exes only for her to visit his house some other day and see that he has turned it to rag.
She also narrated how she gifted another boyfriend a birthday cake but he gave out the pastry to his neighbours in her presence.
According to her, these incidents are what formed the basis for her decision and ever since then she has not given a single gift to any man.
Kemi tweeted; ”I stopped buying gift for men since my two worst experiences. I got a tshirt for the first one and the next time I visited, it was his rag, I got a birthday cake for the second one and he gave it out to his neighbors in my presence. Ever since then I vowed never to get men gifts.”
When netizens started lambasting her, saying it was a lousy reason for not giving her boyfriends anything, she replied;
”Everyone trying to defend what’s not and I can’t reply to all so I will just put this here
Regardless of what ever.. those things costs me money. A little gratitude would go a long way even if it’s pretending.”
When @emmofie asked; So if they have been buying you iPhones, bags, shoes, expensive hangouts they should jump up because you bought them a N700 tshirt?
@TheOnlyKemi said; “For your information, they have never given me a penny.. and no it wasn’t 700 naira T-shirt, I’m not your cheap girlfriend.”
More Twitter users shared their thoughts in the comment section.
@OkoyeCardinal; Ask your man what he likes, I once gave out a birthday cake to my colleagues. Someone like me, I prefer bucket of egusi soup over cake.
@_Copah_Jay; Honestly for me that isn’t used to getting gifts. I really do appreciate everything little given even if it’s a card cos it’s way beyond the gift but the intention towards it. People should be humane enough not to hurt others trying to be good.
@Honiitel; All of you in the cs saying “maybe…did you?” Abeg stop making excuses for those men. They were just terrible people. You don’t treat gifts like that.
In other news, a man played a TikTok challenge with his babe and made her feel over the moon when he surprised her with two lovely gifts.
He gave his babe an iPhone 13 Pro Max and a 100 dollar bill as early Christmas presents even though he made her choose one.
The challenge entails writing two different special items or fun-filled activity on a stick-it note and asking ones partner to pick any of the notes though the front would be hidden from them.
In a video circulating online, he wrote $100 on one note and iPhone 13 Pro Max on the other, before asking her to select one.
She almost picked the iPhone 13 but her man held firmly to it and asked her to choose wisely, so she went for the other. When the removed the note that had $100 written on it she was excited.
So he gave her a 100 dollar bill, however, he showed her the other paper and when she realised that it was iPhone 13 Pro Max, her facial expression changed.
Fortunately for the girl, her boyfriend had already bought the smartphone so he brought it out and gave it to her in addition to the $100 she received earlier. She grabbed the phone with so much excitement and eagerness that it fell out of his hands.
