- A Twitter user said his girlfriend looked down on his R150 gift
- The girlfriend got a R500 gift from another man
- It turned out that the other man had R5,000 — and all the boyfriend had was the R150
A Twitter user has shared how his girlfriend looked down on his modest R150 gift, saying it was all he had.
@AdvBarryRoux said another man gave his girlfriend R500, leading her to think he was better than her boyfriend.
However, @AdvBarryRoux said all he had was the R150 while the other man had R5,000 but only gave R500.
This story sparked a lively debate among @AdvBarryRoux's followers after garnering more than 1,500 retweets and 5,300 likes.
While some agreed with him that it's the thought that counts, others said R500 is still better than R150 no matter the case. See more reactions below.
"How was the girlfriend supposed to know what each man had?"
"Don't judge someone's generosity."
Some felt @AdvBarryRoux is a gentleman.
"R500 is still better than R150."
Some ladies confessed that they don't "get a cent" from their boyfriends, so R150 is a lot for them.
One man said he borrowed money to give his girlfriend, but she still didn't appreciate it.
