Woman asks if she’s wrong to demand her boyfriend replace her sock collection after he threw it out.

It turns out that it's a controversial issue whether or not a woman has a right to choose her socks.

A woman is consulting the internet on whether or not she's being jerkishly demanding by insisting her boyfriend replace her sock collection that he threw out himself.

She works as a phlebotomist (I had to Google it too—phlebotomists draw blood and perform blood transfusion), and the funky socks are a cute way to cheer up the patients who are understandably anxious about getting a needle in their arm. If you're looking down at the floor because you don't want to feel like a human pin cushion, a Nicolas Cage pattern is a welcome sight.

Under the apt username ilikedmysocks, she posted on "Am I The A**hole?":

This might seem silly. I (24F) like wearing cheerful socks, since my uniform is all white (currently working as an phlebotomist), it usually cheers up the patients too.

I've spent a few years collecting strange socks, ones with sushi, pizza, corgis, cats, Nick Cage, etc. I think I had about 30 pairs. My boyfriend (29M) has always hated them, and thinks they're childish. So I agreed to only wear them to work, and never on dates or around his friends/family. I thought that was fair.

On boxing day his parents came over for coffee and gifts (just the 4 of us, which is allowed where I live, and keeping a solid 3 meters apart). I accidentally put on a pair of 'childish' socks, and his mother made a comment about it. I explained that I wear them to work to cheer people up, and she liked that. My boyfriend didn't.
