have you bees ever been in a situation where you have done something for someone and got a response that you think is inappropriate?
a mutual friend of myself and Fiance really wanted a game (diablo 3 we had preordered it months ago) and we decided that we could get it for him with the last of our tax return money. we both think its a good idea and that he will appreciate it since its been the ONLY thing he has talked about in the past 2 months and counting down the days to release and all of that. well we get him the game (digital download) so he can play with the rest of us and we get “i kind of expected someone would get this for me” and “i kinda wish i had the actual disks thought just in case ya know? i guess i will just have to deal *sigh*” i was just kinda like what!?!? really!?!? no thanks you guys that was really nice or that is really cool of you or ANYTHING!?!? I mean we spent a lot of money (game cost $60 which we had plans for but decided we would do something nice for our friend and it may not seem like much but that is a lot of money for us) and it really seems unappreciated and kinda makes me feel like i was the sucker that fell for the guilt trip( i suggested getting it for him) and now its kinda jokes on me.Im to the point that i dont really want to talk to this person at all for fear that i may say omething i shouldnt. It may just be because its “that time of the month” and im hormonal as hell but i was so upset i was shaking when this all happened. I just feel kinda…used
has anyone else been in a situation like this or anything simmilar? and i totally out of line for wanting some sort of thank you in this case or am i totally overreacting?

Yup that seems selfish, ungratful and kinda self centered. Especially the I kinda thought someone would get it for me and I guess i’ll deal. Like WTF thats so uncalled for 🙁 not. I feel like he manipulated you guys into it too!
that really sucks I’m sorry that it didn’t go batter

There’s no doubt about it. His response was extremely rude.

Sounds rude and selfish to me. I wouldn’t say anything, but I sure as hell wouldn’t get him anything else again. Ever.

Wow, that’s super rude and immature. I’d avoid that person from now on, too. You were being really nice, I’m sorry your friend is such an idiot about it.

Selfish, ungrateful and rude. I don’t think he’d be getting anything from me ever again.

What the others said, plus I’d call him out on being so incredibly rude and behaving like a spoilt, entitled brat.

What the hell?! I’m a gamer and I know they tend to be socially awkward introverts, but this crosses a line. I’m nicer to girls than guys, so I might not day anything to a girl, but there would definitely be words if it was a guy. WORDS!

@Sutaru: yeah it is a guy. he is more of FI’s friend than mine really. i really should have known better though after we(roomates fi and myself) took him to Blizzcon (big gaming convention) and paid for everything for for him and all he did was complain and sit in the car the whole second day. this dude is getting NOTHING. EVER.

Wow, well that’s the last time I would do anything especially nice for that person.
