I live in Northern Canada and it's pretty damn cold here in the winter; we have to plug our cars in so they don't freeze To this end, I purchased a new 50' all-weather extension cord. And a few days later came home to an identical one inside Asked what it was, bf says his dad bought it for us 1) wtf, were adults; did he think we didn't know to plug in? (That would be like not knowing our ABCs) 2) I know that cord cost $60.00 and we really have no use for it. I tell him to give it back so his dad can get refunded; I don't want him to pay that kind of money for nothing He argues, says it was a gift (he's an eldest child and his parents baby him like this more than I think he realizes; he has a hard time saying no or doing things himself if he knows he can get their help) but finally says 'fine' and walks out with it (he was on his way somewhere) Hasn't really been cold enough to need to plug in since then But last night it got down to ~-18 so I got the cord out, faced my car so he could share the cord, and plugged in He got home later, we had supper, etc etc This morning I go to scrape the ice off and find that second extension cord plugged into my cord Even though there was no way he couldn't reach it Even though he told me he gave it back I've been lied to He chose not disappointing his dad over 1) doing the right thing and giving him $60 back and 2) BEING truthful to me I can't even describe how hurt and angry I am right now; last night he was cuddling me and telling me he loved me all while LYING to me I know it's just a cord, that I'm not even out money for it, but I am not discussing the degree to which I was lied to; there was a lie; he doesn't even feel bad. That's enough.
