“Shoelaces”

best of quirks

I was at the store one day and happened to remember that my skateboarding boyfriend said he needed a new pair of shoelaces. So in an attempt to be a thoughtful girlfriend, I bought him a pair… but it was apparently the wrong kind. When I brought them over the next day, his only response was “If you can’t pay attention to the kind of shoelaces I wear, how can I expect you to understand my needs?”

—L.

Aftermath: We were together off and on for about 2 years, but it was high school so that’s pretty much an eternity.
