It's more the fact that she's demanding something that isn't hers and that they obviously have some communication issues that makes me think they should split.

Honestly, I don't understand how you men put up with these type of girls. Whenever I meet them it takes a lot of effort not to smack them.

Superking! DAMN! NT$400 is MORE than a six-pack of Kirin Ichiban. That makes things serious. But yeah, if your domestics are boiling down to the distribution of three cans of beer then there's a whole lot more going on than mere incompatibility. I would suggest that you look into yourself. Deeply. Really dig down in there into the miasma. And perhaps -- only PERHAPS, mind -- consider that there might be something in this confabulation -- in this RELATIONSHIP!!! -- that amounts to a bit more than three 330-ml cans of cheap beer.
Think on! You are thinking about the possibility of ending a relationship over THREE CANS OF CHEAP BEER. So is she, apparently.
I dunno. I just dunno any more. Bring back national service is what I say. Get a bit of fucking backbone into these children.

No no, dear heart. The OP doesn't want to break up with his girlfriend. He wanted some advice about how to grease the wheel in this silly situation he is in. Wants to please gf, doesn't want to lie to his homies. She is right that bf looks like he is adopting a bit of a bro's before ho's attitude, and his solution is to chuck the money away so no-one can have it. Damn right she is fed up.

THEN: The following classic advice was meted out:

TC(suprisingly): Look for a new g/f.
Battery9: If this is real, I would break up with her.
Tsuki: Tell her it is over.
Confuzius: Why are you still with her after this?
NTLT: RUN!
Tommy: Make it work or break up.


You guys would seriously break up with your partner because you couldn't possibly deal with the fact that your partner thinks you are an idiot for putting your friend 'honour' code first and would rather see money tossed in the gutter than do anything else?

It ain't the girl that is the pyscho here. It's all of ya'll.

OP: Just give them ONE of the winning receipts and keep the other and say nothing, everybody wins.

And Tsuki: Walking around resisting the urge not to smack other people in the face? I assume that is just a bit of written artistic licence. Otherwise I hope we never meet otherwise I'd need an ambulance for my bruises and you'd need a straight jacket.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

Seriously man. There is ethical conduct, and there is just being a jerk to a girl.

She did 400NT worth of work in my book just by going through them. I don't care who initially bought something and walked out with a receipt... you guys are lazy consumers who let them expire repeatedly. She put up effort in return for a possible reward.

You guys did nothing but shove receipts in a box. She WORKED and therefore EARNED the money, so calm down, and be nice.

Sounds to me like his gf needs a jolly good spanking, old chap.

I'm breaking up with you. NOBODY uses conditionals unless they are seriously deranged or secretly getting English lessons..... You've been seeing an English teacher behind my back. Haven't you? HAVENT YOU, YOU WHORE. Now get out of my apartment.
