As we’ve said for years now, stuffed animals are quite special. For many people they aren’t just toys, but friends and part of their lives. So, sometimes this creates awkward situations, the Metro reports.
One woman on Mumsnet for example gave quite the unusual story. She’s in a new relationship with a great man who even moved in.
One day his ex came to the house to collect Bear. That’s not a kid’s nickname, nor a pet. It’s actually a teddy bear. ‘He hadn’t warned me this was happening, and I was just expecting her to drop some of his stuff off. He did the handing over but it was all unbearably awkward’, the woman writes. It’s also awkward because they are 40 years old.
Some time later, this happened again. This time the ex wanted Bear for the holidays. She says her new man is not confrontational, so maybe that’s one of the reasons why he keeps giving Bear instead of getting a new one. Metro adds that another user also said they share custody of stuffed animals, but never meet to exchange them.
So, is it weird? A big. The original poster says she is feeling weird about the ordeal. Her partner says Bear’s personality will be missed if he just gets a new bear. So, while true fans of teddy bears would understand, that’s definitely a difficult issue for other people. Maybe they should talk more about it and find a common ground.
