Pissed off with reaction to present?

Bought friend birthday present. She opened it and literally looked at it in disgust and just muttered thanks and shoved it back in the bag.

Genuinely thought I’d bought her something she would like - obviously not. Which is fine and you can’t help what you like or dislike but surely most people would at least pretend to like it?

It’s annoyed me so much that I’ve text her to apologise. Aibu?

Why on earth have you apologised?

You genuinely thought she would like it. In which way did you go wrong?

SpoonfulOfJam Sat 03-Feb-18 18:38:30

What was it?

Strange reaction what was it?! Sure you’ve not regulated by mistake something she’s got you before

RupertsMum2 Sat 03-Feb-18 18:39:19

She was very rude.

pinkyredrose Sat 03-Feb-18 18:39:30

What did you get her?

You shouldn't have apologised-unless it was something weird or insensitive she was extremely rude. I'd be asking her if there was a problem with the present as I'd noticed she looked less than pleased, but only to make sure she knew how rude she's been. There would be no apology from me.

Unless you bought her something of exceptional poor taste or very insensitive, she is beyond rude. I am not sure about texting her about it, I would have just left it there, or said something at the time. I would just not buy her anything ever again.

What on earth could you give someone to warrant that reaction?! How rude of her

InsomniacAnonymous Sat 03-Feb-18 18:41:25

Unbelievably rude! shock Even a child knows better not to do something like that!

LoveB Sat 03-Feb-18 18:41:37

What was it?! Has she replied?

ShimmeringBollox Sat 03-Feb-18 18:41:49

Was it a FUCK phone case?

monkeywithacowface Sat 03-Feb-18 18:44:18

Really want to know what it was! Not that it should make a difference she was rude. I have a friend who has "interesting" tastes in gifts. Other than an enthused thank you and a hug there is no other response to a gift

Was it a Nick Knowles CD?

FrancisCrawford Sat 03-Feb-18 18:45:57

She’s rude and ungrateful

And not your friend

DakotaWest Sat 03-Feb-18 18:46:11

Did you text her to send your apologies, or did you text her to ask her to apologise?

TacoFlavouredKisses Sat 03-Feb-18 18:46:55

PLEASE let it be a Nick Knowles CD grin

Bramble71 Sat 03-Feb-18 18:47:32

I'd have texted her asking her to apologise, or at least tell you what was so wrong she behaved like a child. YNBU.

Idontdowindows Sat 03-Feb-18 18:48:03

I hope you texted her to tell her she needed to apologise!

LaurieFairyCake Sat 03-Feb-18 18:48:30

Unless it was a dildo modelled on Harvey Weinsteins cock then surely you’ve nothing to apologise for confused

gamerwidow Sat 03-Feb-18 18:49:59

Did you buy her a gym membership after telling her she was a bit porky or something similarly insensitive otherwise I’m she’s being very rude

babyccinoo Sat 03-Feb-18 18:53:50

You apologised to her for her being an ungrateful twat?

RebootYourEngine Sat 03-Feb-18 18:57:50

Why did you apologise?

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Sat 03-Feb-18 19:03:05

Fuck apologising to her, she's rude.
