A man shared a story on Facebook stating how some people can be superficial and always judges things from the outside.
He booked a flight to Korea as a surprise for his girlfriend but she rejected the “gift” as the airline was a budget airline.
Here is the story:
I have been dating my girlfriend for over a year now. I am working full-time and earn roughly $60k per year and she is still in university. I wanted to travel for a long week in Korea.
After I happily booked the air tickets and hotel. I decided ot surprise her and told her that we were flying to Korea.
I expected a smile on her but all I got was disgust,
This is roughly how the conversation went:
Me: I have a surprise for you.
Me: We are going to Korea! Hotels and Flights has been booked!
Her: What airline are we taking?
Her: What?! I’m not going. So budget.
That’s when I started to get pissed. I come from a family where someone has gave you something for free it is best to gracefully accept it–especially something that isn’t cheap (tickets were like $900 round-trip each)–is just disrespectful.
I told her that I would buy both of our tickets because I want to surprise her and she demanded to go for Singapore airlines but I told her I don’t have the money for that. And that’s the truth, from my perspective.
I put a lot of money into savings, good health insurance, etc.
That’s more than I typically spend on entertainment for myself in 3 months.
So when she said that I could afford it, she basically meant that I could be less conservative with my money and pay for it instead of saving my money like I always do.
