Won some money recently only about 500 but decided to treat myself two new bags cost 50 pounds for both. Decided to buy my boyfriend some new aftershave he has about 50 different ones has all of a certain brand to. I gave it to him when I came home and his first words where you don't by people perfume or aftershave. I've been brought loads of perfume in the past every one at work got a perfume set for Christmas obviously made sure it was there regular one they like. I told him he was being ungrateful walked off and just cried he then shouted why the fuck you crying over it. I've had a shitty day feeling emotional

Ungrateful shit! Take it back and buy yourself something else

He's an ungreatful twat... hope he apologises soon

At least you know not to bother treating him again.
Enjoy your bags and the rest of your cash!!
He sounds like a right charmer. .

There's only one appropriate response to being given a gift (apart from when it is from someone from whom you wouldn't accept a gift, or someone who can't afford to give it) and that is to say thank you.

Lose the boyfriend.

YANBU. You were kind enough to spend your money to get him something nice. I know DH would be delighted if I bought him aftershave. Take it back and get yourself something instead.

Does he have any good points?!

TheWeeBabySeamus1 Fri 23-Jun-17 18:50:41

Wow! I agree take it back and get some perfume for yourself instead. And then use your exotic new fragrance to lure in a better man, cos this one sounds like an arse.

Is this standard behaviour? He sound a treat hmm

He's incredibly ride and ungrateful - but, it's something that my mother drummed into me - there are certain things you never buy anyone, perfume/aftershave is on that list. It is poor social etiquette to eg give your hostess perfume as a gift, but I would have thought partners at ok.

Busybee233 Fri 23-Jun-17 18:56:57

It's not standered behaviour and I did think about not getting him it but I figured that as he has the whole collection over 12 of one brand as as this was a new one of the collection and smelt like the others I really liked on the first test it smelt like him

I said I would cook dinner this morning half tempted to just cook own

Surely you're not going to be cooking dinner for that charmless nurk?

Busybee233 Fri 23-Jun-17 19:01:21

I don't want to but then I don't want to be childish

Fragrance is a popular gift item between partners - you're not his dinner-party guest or work colleague - he's being completely ridiculous and very ungrateful.

disneykid Fri 23-Jun-17 19:08:13

He sounds like a twat. What attracted you to this delight?

littlebird7 Fri 23-Jun-17 19:09:50

Talk but about p***** on your parade.

I am not sure he would be my bf anymore after being so rude and horrible. Why are you with him? He doesn't seem to have any respect for you.

littlebird7 Fri 23-Jun-17 19:11:15

Be childish, be very childish Busybee. He should be cooking dinner for you, along with a celebratory bottle of wine after your win. At the very least you need a heartfelt apology.

MikeUniformMike Fri 23-Jun-17 19:13:24

Take it back for a refund.
Dump the boyfriend. Ungrateful shit.

WarwickAlice Fri 23-Jun-17 19:14:32

^^ what Mike said. You can do better smile

Whocansay Fri 23-Jun-17 19:14:37

Don't cook him dinner. Do go back to the shops, return the aftershave and buy some lovely perfume for you instead.

He is an arsehole. And a nasty one at that.

Shoxfordian Fri 23-Jun-17 19:14:54

He's so ungrateful. Take yourself out somewhere or take a friend too for dinner somewhere lovely with the rest of it

WomblingThree Fri 23-Jun-17 19:15:15

Why did you buy him aftershave if he already has 50 bottles?

happypoobum Fri 23-Jun-17 19:15:22

I'd dump his sorry arse - what a prince among men sad
