In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, it can be hard to summon the willpower to do mundae tasks, let alone special things.

One boyfriend is in the doghouse after he failed to get his girlfriend a birthday cake. He asked the people of Reddit whether pandemic-induced stress and store closures are an acceptable excuse, or if he's just an a-hole.

The couple lives in New York City, the epicenter of the outbreak, so things are tough:

I am 31M, she's 34F, we're both in NYC. Her birthday was last Monday. I didn't get her a cake because we live in NYC and everything is in lockdown.

The girlfriend has been upset for days because he didn't make the effort t olocate a cake:

She's extremely upset that I didn't even call the local bakery and try. I called when she told me how upset she was and they told me they aren't doing cakes right now.

He claims making a cake wasn't an option:

I don't know how to bake. I'm extremely overwhelmed with the quarantine experience and with my job situation. I tried to make her birthday still feel special by making her a nice breakfast in the morning and ordering dinner from her favorite nice restaurant.
