She's been feeling a bit under the weather lately so I thought I'd do something nice to cheer her up. I booked a short break for us in the spring, and then she gets all upset and angry when I tell her that I'm going to take her to the Lake District and Cockermouth. There's just no pleasing them is there.

She probably had plans to break up with you after the holidays.

Sounds good to me I've been planning to trade her for a newer model.

Yeah I know, judging from this thread alone you're one of those incapable of building a real bond.
Or you'd have known how to keep the one you already have madly in love with you. You'd know how to cheer her up instead of just throwing money at her.

Help me out will you please? Have you not actually got a sense of humour or you are just an American that doesn't get the joke?

I'm a woman. I got thrown expensive stuff at me when all I wanted was a cup of tea and a blanket. And maybe an 'awww do you need something'
So it's not funny to me.
And if you double down with this grande machismo posturing I might barf but I don't laugh.
It's more a cry for help and therapy than a joke.
There's no shame in that we're all varying degrees of dysfunctional.

But it's more sad than funny, if you're honest.

I bet your the life and soul of any party. It's just a jokey play on words and really not worth getting your Knickers in a twist over sweetie.

In real life I'm the most charming person you'll never meet.
Online I let my unchecked bitchyness run wild.
Like I said 'varying degrees of dysfunctional'

Um...never mind...I'm just gonna go now.

Expensive stuff thrown at you?

Like a NOS set of 4 AC-3280, "Aero-Struts." for a 1957 Studebaker golden Hawk?

What is it she doesn't like about the location? It's one you enjoy and she doesn't?

Why would that upset her? There's more to this story methinks..
I'm female. I can only imagine there must be some other issue going on or you entirely missed a point she was trying to get across, not your fault, a guy friend just told me yesterday.. 'I'm a man and incapable of complicated thoughts or actions' 🤣
I jest I jest! If it is an innocent gesture I would have been delighted with this surprise. I might decline, but I still would be happy you were trying to be thoughtful.

To all those that seemed to have missed the fact that this is in the jokes forum it's a play on words.

I'm a chick and I got the joke immediately.

I'm glad it's not just me that thinks the reaction to this is very strange.

It does seem very defensive.

I sense someone has been hurt a time or two.
