Man is slammed for buying his girlfriend a box of tampons after heated row

A grovelling man who shared the 'thoughtful' apology gifts he bought for his girlfriend after a heated row following a late night down the pub has divided opinion online. 

Jack Sullivan, from Chelsmford, Essex, took to Twitter and posted a snap of the three gifts he bought for his partner - a bouquet of roses, Thornton's chocolates, and a box of Tampax.

Alongside the trio of gifts, he left a cheeky handwritten note which read: 'The chocolates are cos I love you. The flowers are cos I'm sorry. The Tampax is cos I'm still not sure why I'm apologising so I guess you'll need these any day now.'

The social media post had a very mixed reaction, with one writing: 'How was the sofa to sleep on? Comfortable? (pictured)

The cheeky chappy captioned the post: 'Went pub last night and come home and had a bit of an argument with the missus.

'I'll be the bigger man and apologise...If you can call it that!' 

But while some people were left in hysterics by the gesture, others were left feeling infuriated. 

'Are you really apologising if you're saying "I'm not sure why I'm apologising" and suggesting that you don't need to because period/PMS = overreaction,' vented one.

A second raged: 'Thought it was cute until I got to the tampons part … it's 2021 and y'all are still dismissing your girlfriend's emotions to the period joke?? Pathetic,' while a third added: 'I hope she slaps those roses around your head.' 

Meanwhile, a fourth asked: "Can men actually use their brains and stop thinking that when a woman is sad, upset, annoyed or mad that they are either due on or on their period like we literally feel those things all the time.'

Another infuriated social media user commented: 'Do people still find s**t like this funny? I’m not being ‘woke’ it’s just been done to death.' 

However, others saw a more lighthearted side to the Tweet, which has been shared over 27,000 times, and has garnered thousands more responses.  

Another joked: 'You’ll be wearing the flowers, the chocolates will be in the dog and I hate to say where she’ll stuff the tampax.'
