A Newry woman who specifically told her husband not to buy her anything for her birthday has told of her disappointment that her husband didn’t buy her anything for her birthday.
Claire Fatflaps, 37, told her husband not to spend any money on her birthday but to put it towards a holiday. Husband Liam didn’t buy anything, leaving Claire feeling disappointed.
She told Newry Spud:
“When I told him that I didn’t want anything for my birthday, I was kind of hoping that he read between the lines and went out and bought something. When I said that I didn’t want anything, I did of course mean that I would have liked something. It didn’t have to be anything super-expensive, but just something that showed a little bit of thought. As it is, he’s bought fuck all, making my birthday an absolutely shit one.”
Husband Liam added:
“I’m confused. I thought that when she said not to buy anything, that she meant not to buy anything. She did the same last night when I asked her if she wanted anything from the shop. She said ‘no’ and then kicked off that I hadn’t bought her Kit-Kat.”
