I’m just going to go out on whim here and say that about 99 percent of us have had a relationship that ended at some point in our lives. Regardless of the reason why it ended, gone were the good, bad and indifferent memories, flushed down the drain with any and all the money we spent on that significant other forever.
One dude in Russia isn’t about to let that cash go, though, because he’s suing his now ex-girlfriend and trying to get her to repay him for a bunch of shit he bought her while they were together.
Per The Telegraph:
Nina Zgurskaya, in her twenties, told Russian television that her relationship with the young Siberian lawyer had broken down after a romantic seaside holiday in Crimea went awry.
She had expected him to propose after two years together, she said, but discussions about their future had only led to a squabble. She dumped him when he failed to pop the question.
“We went to Fedosia, Crimea, for 12 days and agreed that it was a romantic trip where he will propose to me. But it didn’t happen. So I left,” she told Russia’s Prima TV between tears and giggles.
A few weeks later she received court papers. Her ex-boyfriend had meticulously catalogued flower shop, restaurant and café receipts during their time together and demanded she repay all the money he had spent.
The total amount claimed was 45,000 roubles, or £466 – including legal fees payable to himself.
For those Americans out there, the amount in U.S. currency is equal to $676, meaning this dickbag guy wants his former lady to basically pay for a round-trip plane ticket somewhere this summer. What a chotch.
Seeing as how this guy is classy as fuck, here’s what the unnamed dude said about things, per The Telegraph:
“She can’t prove that we were even in a relationship,” the man, who wished to remain unnamed, told Russia’s STS television channel. “I never said that I was giving her a present or a free ride. Is it immoral to go to court? Am I expected to give money to every woman on the street?”
Would I want back all the cash I spent on my ex? Sure. But that’s not how this works, that’s not how any of this works.
