Sometimes the internet is a wonderful place – and today it gave us this: a wife bought a bouncy castle after a guy his credit card, and the screenshots documenting the whole story are invaluable. The context is important: he had apparently offered her a date, to which she said no. However, he persisted, choosing at that point to give her her credit card information and tell her to buy whatever she liked.
You can probably guess where this is going.
The woman in question here is Leagan, a 17-year-old from Lubbock, Texas, who tweets under the handle @leagalicious. On September 20, she tweeted the world saying simply, “You are all invited to my bouncy castle party funded by the guy who sent me his credit card after I said no to a date ”- with screenshots explaining exactly what happened.
It begins with a text message reading, “I want you to have something.This message is followed by two images: The front and back of a credit card. (Leagan erased the actual information on the map before posting it.) “Just in case you need anything. Anything, “the following reads – and just in case there is any doubt as to what that means, another tweet reads:” Anything your heart desires. “
The following text is invaluable. It starts with a screenshot of an email inbox, with the first message from a sender called “Jungle Jumps”. “Welcome to Jungle Jumps,” the subject line reads.
“Baby, what is this?” Asks the poor boy.
“You said rubbish, didn’t you?” answers our intrepid hero.
Then there’s another screenshot – this time of an order confirmation – and the words “Did you just buy a fucking bouncy house”.
HAS SHE EVER.
Specifically, she bought this inflatable house:
As you may have deduced from the screenshots of Leagan’s tweet, the bouncy palace is Jumps in the jungle, which is apparently “the largest American manufacturer of inflatable play structuresAccording to the company’s website. He is based in Pacoima, California, in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. Incidentally, the Pink bounce house with sign, as it is called, is on sale now; you can get the 10 x 10 x 12 size for $ 938, for $ 1,145, and the 13 x 13 x 15 size for $ 1,143, for $ 1,395.

Is it possible that this is all a hoax? I mean yes; screenshots and text messages are easy to forge. For what it’s worth, however, here’s Leagan’s response to someone wondering if this was all real or not:
I mean, just.
Overall, however, people don’t question Leagan; they just want to be his friend:
And / or mark party invitations:
Speaking of, in an email to Cosmopolitan, Leagan said she actually does. plan to have a party in a bouncy house (as long as his unfortunate suitor does not cancel the order); “Everyone is welcome and I will give the details once the bounce house arrives!” ” she said. The guy, meanwhile, was “understandably annoyed with my purchase,” Leagan wrote, “but after realizing he actually said ‘whatever’ we were cool.”
Let this be a lesson on the importance of language precision. And also by graciously accepting a “no” when someone refuses your romantic overtures.
