A woman asked her boyfriend to pick up a pair of leggings for her and the poor guy nearly had a meltdown in the store trying to pick out a pair. We know not because a news crew happened upon him sobbing under the leggings display, but because the hapless fellow sent his girlfriend desperate, hilarious texts throughout the whole process.
The woman, Tay Gallagher (@MissTayl0rAnne on Twitter) told Someecards that she was busy working all weekend, and as her boyfriend was out shopping for a birthday present for her, she asked him to pick up a pair of black leggings, too. Gallagher posted a couple of screengrabs of her boyfriend-of-two-years' increasingly frantic texts as he searched for a pair of leggings to bring her, and the tweet went viral, because of how funny it was.
Her boyfriend had already reached the "overwhelmed" stage within 2 minutes. He attributed the rise in women's anxiety to the many types of leggings currently on the market. This is not a man cut out for leggings shopping, but he hung in there like a champ.
He spent a total of around 5 minutes in the shop before he texted her "All hope is lost. I'm going to make a break for it." But the question remained: did he manage to get her a pair? People on Twitter were invested at this point; they needed to know!
The boyfriend himself, Tim Goddard, replied, saying that he made it out, but wasn't "100% convinced" he wasn't still in a coma, which doesn't make a lot of sense, but look, the man had been through his own personal leggings hell.
So okay, great, the boyfriend is fine, but what about the leggings??
And he instantly became an internet hero.
Up next: lipstick shopping!
