An anonymous woman took to the internet to get some perspective on the blind rage she felt after her boyfriend gifted her an unwrapped "clothes iron" for her birthday. Here's the beginning of her very justifiable complaint:
Yes, anonymous lady, you are justified in your anger at receiving an unwrapped iron for your birthday.
Couldn't he have put a little bow on it at least?
Commenters largely agreed that this woman's sordid account of the birthday present gone wrong was not unique to her boyfriend alone.
One redditor shared her own incident, articulating a fascinating difference between men and women.
Another commenter, MidnightMalaga, shared a story of one husband who used the bad-gift trope as his own glorious punch line.
Hopefully, with time and many nice gifts, the unhappy couple from our first story manages to become the happy couple from the last one. After, of course, they IRON THINGS OUT. (Sorry.)
