We’ve all heard our share of terrible ex-boyfriend stories. But one Twitter user shared a story that is uniquely horrifying: her boyfriend stole the credit for homemade tiramisu that she’d made.
Jessica Blankenship explained that she’d spent 12 hours making the tiramisu. Her ex took her photo of the cake and sent it to other girls to win them over, claiming that he’d made it. THE HORROR.
In response to Jessica’s tweet, other women began to share similar stories of their exes stealing credit for their accomplishments. Is there a name for this type of abuse? Emotional terrorism, maybe?
Some of the lies are SO oddly specific – this guy’s sense of self was hinging on a Swiffer of all things?
And this guy really decided to take credit for this Aztec clay mask – and it worked. Clever motherf*cker.
Other stories were more common, like guys stealing their girlfriend’s drawings.
One user joked about “PTSD gang,” but seriously. PTSD gang.
Some of these robberies are just abominable. NOT THE PUPPY, SIR.
One girl spent an entire summer winning her and her boyfriend a trip to Mexico, and he went without her!
Another girl’s ex fed her homemade rice crispy cakes to his side piece!
And another ex-guy stole a woman’s LOVE POEMS!
Then there’s this other dog fraudster. Throw all of these men in jail.
If one good thing came out of this thread, though, it’s that tons of women came together and realized that they’re not alone with these experiences.
Now, if only there were a way to actually warn other women against dating these specific men.
Programmers, where ya at?!
