Every relationship has its own ups and downs. There are adjustments and compromises in a relationship. In this story a girlfriend is tired of her boyfriend using a phrase as a punchline for almost everything he does. Read the story and let us what the girlfriend should do.
Me and my boyfriend were on holiday in Tenerife a few months ago. We were in an all inclusive resort, and were standing in one of the shops in the lobby where you can buy extra snacks and stuff.
A very posh British man walked in with his 12ish year old son, and they were looking around the shop. They went over to where the crisps were, and the boy seemed very interested in the Pringles. The father then asked him in a very cutesy, possibly over the top for his age voice, “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?”. Yes, he called the Pringles “Pwingys”.
Me and my boyfriend found this quite funny. The first few days were fine, we were both joking about it and kept repeating it to one another as it was a funny way to refer to Pringles, especially as the man was talking to his son like he was a baby.
This was at the start of our 2 weeks holiday. He did not stop saying “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?” for the whole 2 weeks we were on holiday. He would literally say it at least once a minute. He would even torment me by starting a sentence completely unrelated to it, then finishing with “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?” as some sort of sick punchline.
Its now been over 3 months since we’ve returned and he will not stop saying “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?”. It is driving me insane. I have begged him to stop but he honestly thinks I am just playing along with his joke. I can’t have a serious conversation with him because he always manages to slip in “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?”.
This is a 5 year long relationship, and it was absolutely fine up until this point. This is the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with but now I don’t even want to see him because I’m afraid of when he will say “Do you want some Pwingys, for the room?”.
I am now refusing to talk to him unless he stops. I’m honestly afraid that he will say he’s going to stop but then just carry on. Am I blowing this out of proportion? What is your opinion?
