There are some people who genuinely hate surprises. Well, I really don't know anybody personally who dislikes surprises.
I guess the only person I can think of is Kevin Spacey from Horrible Bosses, but I guess that character is based somewhat on reality, so it has to be true, right?
So although I can't understand why in the hell someone wouldn't be happy that one or more people took enough time and care to surprise them with a party or a celebration, I can understand the frustration someone has when another person deliberately won't listen to something they said.
However it turns out that there's more to this story than meets the eye.
Which is why you can't believe everything you see on the internet. However, I will say this, the silence in that room after he threw the phone was convincing as all hell.
