A woman left Redditors shaking their heads and laughing out loud when she revealed that her boyfriend wanted a percentage of her raise. His reasoning just might have you rolling on the floor, too. Here is the full story.
He Knew What Was Coming
OP is a 32-year-old woman who has been with her 35-year-old boyfriend for 7 years.
During that time, he has always claimed to have a special ability to see the future.
She Had Her Doubts
OP has mostly humored her boyfriend because she really does love him, but she’s not so sure about his claims.
He Saw the Ride
For instance, one time the boyfriend told OP that he had a dream about her driving around in a new car.
Then, 2 months later, she bought a new car.
He Predicted the Pal
Later on, the boyfriend dreamed that OP would soon have a new friend come into her life.
She adopted a dog a few months later, and her boyfriend again claimed victory.
It’s Not Worth Fighting
So, all in all, OP thinks the boyfriend’s “predictions” are a bit weak, but it hasn’t been worth arguing about.
She Earned It
Recently, OP landed a big raise that she had been working toward for more than 6 years.
With the extra money, she planned to make some renovations to her house that she had been putting off.
Moving Up, Bit by Bit
Even though the raise was huge at 40%, her new income was still small enough that her life wouldn’t change.
She could make some improvements, though.
He Wanted His Cut of the Dough
But when OP told her boyfriend about the raise, he said she needed to set aside some of it for him since he earned it.
She had no idea what that meant, so she asked what he was talking about.
He Knew the Money Was Coming
That’s when the boyfriend whipped out his fortune teller card again.
He said he dreamed about OP getting a big raise long before it ever happened.
She Never Believed Him
OP didn’t remember any predictions along those lines, and she told her boyfriend so.
But he said he didn’t bother to tell her because she always shot down his claims about being able to see the future.
They Would Vouch for Him
But OP’s boyfriend assured her that he had told some friends, who could back him up.
It Was All Hers
OP had no intention of asking her boyfriend’s buds for verification, but she also wasn’t giving him her money.
She reminded him that she had worked long and hard to get the raise, and that she already had plans for it.
She Was Ungrateful
Her boyfriend thought OP was being selfish.
He even said she was turning her back on the very people who had helped her get her raise in the first place.
She Wasn’t Buying It
OP laughed out loud at that one, and they argued about the money for a while longer.
Finally, her boyfriend stormed off.
He Had Them Hoodwinked
Later on, some of the boyfriend’s buddies started hounding OP and said she never treated him right.
They didn’t understand why she didn’t take his amazing powers of prediction seriously.
She’s Keeping the Money
Now, OP is still at odds with her boyfriend and his pals, but she doesn’t think there’s any reason for her to share her raise.
