And then there was the time when Joy was 15 and wanted to break up with her boyfriend, but since she was turning 16 in a month, she decided to wait it out so she could get a birthday gift out of him.

Her boyfriend bought her a gold “Sweet 16” pendant which she never wore because she doesn’t wear gold.

When I asked her why she kept it, she said, “I offered to give it back, but he said keep it. So I did.”

I wonder if she still has it.
