Petty Boyfriend or Practical Decision? 🤷♂️
In a world where the perfect gift can be elusive, one man's refusal to buy his girlfriend's desired $254 Japanese knives has sparked debate. Money isn't an issue for the couple, but the boyfriend believes it's an unreasonable request since she's not a professional cook. After some back-and-forth, he finally decided to take her to a store with Japanese knives in their country. But was he being petty or practical? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐💬
