Take University of Oklahoma students Ashley and Blake. Ashley wanted to give Blake a rad new Xbox game to feed his hobby, but didn't want the acquisition of a much-anticipated game to consume his life. She therefore attached a number of stipulations in the expectation that they would be respected, to wit:
Some of these are pretty fair - nobody wants to feel ignored, and things can indeed be kind of a drag for the loved ones of those 'in battle'. Not sure where she came up with the 11 minute timer for text replies, but whatevs, it's a kindly contract that basically says, "don't blow off our relationship for the sake of leveling up or what have you."
Thing is, it didn't stop there. Onward came another clause, which had a line for a signature and everything:
There it is, all spelled out. One game for one "not bailing on your GF". Blake decided to share the contract online, along with his own commentary:

Nah bro... I’ve been through this before, she wants you to think it’s a joke but in reality if you don’t follow those rules she will go postal on you. Just beware— Daniel Rodrigues (@King_Rodrigues) December 27, 2017
There was so much traction that our star crossed lovers eventually came clean - this was all for fun, and people can take things so seriously.
Don’t worry I’m not going to go postal on him 😂 it 100% was a joke! Thanks for looking out for him though!— Ash (@ashleydavison22) December 27, 2017
A week later, folks checked back in. It went how you think.
To young love. And, apparently, the M1 Garand.
