A young man tells the story of when he and his girlfriend argued over earbuds and broke up after she demanded he buys her a new pair on Reddit’s “Petty Revenge” subthread.
Almost a Year Together
Patrick had been in a relationship with his girlfriend for almost a year.
Strict Dorm Rules
The girlfriend lived in the university dorms with strict rules like a curfew and restrictions on male visitors.
Planning a Road Trip
Patrick worked full-time and had his apartment.
Before Easter break, he and some friends planned a road trip, but the girlfriend declined the invitation.
A Shopping Trip
The day before the road trip, Patrick and his girlfriend went to a shop to purchase earbuds for the journey.
The girlfriend decided to get a pair of AirPods, and Patrick some Bose earbuds.
Offer of a Trade
On the way back to the university, the girlfriend expressed interest in the Patrick’s earbuds and wanted to trade them for her AirPods.
He declined the offer, stating that he needed the earbuds for the trip and that they could exchange them later.
A Terrible Tantrum
When they reached his girlfriend’s dorms, she threw her AirPods at him, still wearing his Bose earbuds, and ran inside the building.
Patrick followed her but was stopped by the guards.
The girlfriend refused to return the earbuds, and had to leave.
Patrick Leaves Confused
Later, he found the charging case for the AirPods that the girlfriend had dropped in her haste to get away.
An Awkward Phone Call
After the road trip, Patrick called his girlfriend and informed her that he had exchanged the AirPods and thrown away the charging case.
She became angry and demanded that the individual get her a new pair of earbuds, or they were done.
End of the Relationship
Patrick agreed to end the relationship, and since then, he has been laughing about the incident.
Redditors couldn’t get enough of the story.
One user wrote, “You didn’t break up with her over earbuds. You broke up with her because you saw how badly she treats you after one year of dating and how self-centered she is. Good on you for seeing her clearly now and ditching her!”
Not So Smart
BeastMode said, “How are you dropping that much money on someone so terrible is beyond me.”
Patrick replied to him saying, “No one has ever accused me of being smart sadly.”
