This lover's quarrel is so 2019. According to a dispute posted online, a BC man is suing his ex-girlfiend and forcing her to return two down pillows and a vibrator following their breakup. This must be one good vibrator because the woman actually took the dispute to Civil Resolution Tribunal in an attempt to keep it. 

On May 13, 2019, the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) in BC heard a rather hilarious case involving a failed love, a vibrator, and two down pillows. 

According to the CRT website, the dispute is over whether the ex-boyfriend, Glen Pedersen, gifted two down pillows and a cordless Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator to his British Columbian ex-girlfriend, Rachel Hannaberry, while they were dating during the fall of 2018. 

Following the breakup that took place around December 2018, Pedersen asked for the three items back. Hannaberry originally agreed to return the times but later refused, saying they were gifts. 

According to the document, three factors needed to be in place to meet the legal definition of a gift under Canadian law. This includes the intention to give, delivery of the item, and acceptance of the item. It is up to the person who received the item to prove it was meant as a gift.

According to the decision, the BC man purchased the vibrator last fall and arranged it to be delivered to the home of his former girlfriend. 

“He provided text message evidence in which both parties referred to the Magic Wand as 'his' and where the respondent asked permission from the applicant before using it,” said the document. 

The girlfriend argued that the parties agreed that the Magic Wand was not a gift because she felt “weird” about gifts. She also argued that the reason she asked permission to use the vibrator was to engage in role play.

In terms of the two down pillows, they were allegedly purchased by the boyfriend because he couldn’t use synthetic pillows. They were then left at the girlfriend's house, where he spent every other weekend, for convenience sake.

Pedersen is now asking for an order that the ex-girlfriend return the items that value at $300 total. “In keeping with the tribunal’s mandate, I find the respondent must, at her expense, return the two down pillows and the Magic Wand to the applicant by way of registered mail or courier to the address set out in the Dispute Notice for the applicant," reads the decision. 

Not only does she have to return the items, but she will also have to reimburse her ex-boyfriend the $125 that he paid in tribunal fees, within 30 days of the decision.
