There's Nothing Like Dividing Assets Over a Bottle of Wine
Not Even a Single Rose
The (presumably ex) boyfriend of HarukoBass was very anti-V-Day when he asked her what she wanted a few days before the holiday. Having a history of being stood up by exes she made a simple request: one red rose. He laughed in her face. The story gets rough from there.

I got progressively more unhappy, partially at the let down of not having a special day with him, partially because his ego and feeling of superiority over everyone was getting tiring. He realized I was unhappy at about 11pm after laughing to himself all day, and said '"well there's nothing I can do about it now, you should have said if you wanted something."'
