Am I in the wrong here?So today is my GF's birthday. We're across the country from eachother at the moment, cause I'm interning at Amazon.com in seattle.
For a little backstory, my GF and I went backpacking this past spring break. We both had a great time, she absolutely loved it, and is really excited to do it again. (I posted pics on the forums, some of you may remember.) Since this was her first time backpacking, she used a lot of my mom's equipment, and felt a little guilty about it, cause its a lot of stuff.
Fast forward a few months to today. I sent her a boquet of her favorite flowers, astroemeria, and this which is quite possibly the best piece of camping equipment I own. I've had mine for 5 years or so, I've used it regularly, and I've had to change the batteries like twice. They are virtually indestructible, with no bulbs to burn out.
Between the flowers, and the headlamp, this has totaled around $80.
She didn't like it, and was kinda hurt.
I'm starting to think this is kinda a fundamental difference between the two of us. I dunno, I just can't imagine ever feeling entitled to presents. Like, if somebody gets me something, and its kinda nice, I'm not going to be disappointed about it. I can't imagine having such a sense of entitlement (well I guess I can actually, I felt that way when I was eight.)
