People Split On TikToker Who Took $1 From GF's Gift Fund Every Time She Yelled At Him

No one likes being yelled at, least of all when it's your partner doing the yelling.

There are ways to mediate rocky romances, of course — ask them to stop, dump them, and so on — but none of these have the potential to go viral.

A TikToker's unorthodox method of dealing with this conundrum has the internet asking some questions.

TikToker Isaac Ramirez is sad.

A sad TikToker

I say this both because I believe his stunt is sad, and because he's literally sad. I mean, just look at the guy. His fiancée apparently yells at him a lot, and he apparently counts how many days in a year she yells at him.

Isaac set aside money for her Valentine's gift.

Most people just use their credit card to buy something nice for their sweetie on Valentine's Day. But not Isaac. He'd rather withdraw $360 in cash, put it in an envelope, and play a weird passive-aggressive power game with it. Fun!

Isaac took the totally normal step of deducting money from the gift fund whenever his fiancée was mean to him.

When you get yelled at, how do you react? I know my instinct is to squirrel away a bunch of cash and then take out portions of it whenever I feel like my partner's been mean to me.

I guess she yelled at him to the tune of $320.

After a year, Isaac claims his fiancée yelled at him on 320 days. Take that away from $360 and her gift fund was down to $40.

Assuming he's telling the truth, saving himself $320 seems like a lousy reward for enduring verbal abuse, no?

He really did tally everything.

Pathetically, Isaac gets into the dollars and cents of the transaction, adding a bit to her fund for doing household labor for him, but subtracting because she was still a meanie.

People weren't really feeling it.

Isaac's stunt had some supporters, with some expressing concern about an emotionally abusive relationship. "It’s time to find a new girl if she yelling at you 320 days of the year dawg," one person wrote.

But most wondered what was up with his Patrick Bateman-esque power dynamics. If someone yells at you almost every day, how is this money envelope scheme a reasonable response?

Cut forward to Valentine's Day.

This, if it's actually true, kind of explains things. Rather than buying a box of chocolates and a nice dinner, his fiancée gave him a freakin' MacBook Pro for Valentine's Day. It seems a tad excessive.

He'll be single soon.

Since his fiancée's gift fund was down to $40 or $39.50 or $26.75 or wherever it was after Isaac's accounting, all he could get for her was this lousy bottle of Ariana Grande perfume. I'm sure she totally understood after he explained that he was doing a passive aggressive powerplay in exchange for TikTok views.

His other videos are kind of weird, too.

"Just finessed my sister by selling her a PS5 for $800"

Here's one where he brags about scalping a PS5 to his own sister. The guy shouldn't be hard up for money, based on his TikTok presence, but he seems to be obsessed with screwing people out of money.

What a cool guy.
