If your office is doing a secret Santa gift exchange, there’s probably a spending limit, like $25 or whatever. Here’s an EXTREME case of what could happen if you spend less than that on the wrong person.
Someone just posted screenshots on Reddit of a text conversation between them and a coworker. And now it’s going viral.
Basically, the guy spent $30 on chocolates and a blanket for his secret Santa gift. The spending limit was $50. And the woman who got the chocolates and blanket looked up how much they cost . . . and asked him to make up the difference.
He actually agreed to do it . . . so she asked him to buy her a $120 Samsung Galaxy tablet. When he pointed out that was a LOT more than $20, she told him, quote, “My kids have been spending me up the wazoo.”
And then, when he started ignoring her messages, she said he makes more money than her . . . he doesn’t have kids to spend money on . . . he was rude to ignore her . . . and she doesn’t, quote, “know how you live with yourself, disgusting.”
Finally, after all that, she said she’d just take the $20 in cash . . . and he said no.
There’s no word on how all of this worked out, but we do know he deleted his Reddit account after the post went viral.
