A Teen Asked His Prom Date If He Needed To Buy "A Croissant" And People Are Trolling

"He better buy you a croissant or I'll be mad."

Posted on

Martinez asked Renterรญa to prom this past Saturday. On Sunday, she got a text from him asking if he needed to buy her "a Croissant" โ€” with a capital C.

Martinez said she was seriously confused. "I was like, um, what is he talking about?" she told BuzzFeed News.

Until she realized WTF her prom date was talking about. And reacted in a way that can only be summed up with this emoji: ๐Ÿ˜‘.


Feeling doubly ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘, Martinez felt like she had to share this online to properly shame her best friend. People came through with the deserved*, and hilarious, shaming.

*Issa joke

@SophieMartini hml for croissants on the low

Although, people advised Martinez she should probably just take the croissant.

@SophieMartini @alejandrapls He better buy you a croissant or I'll be mad.


Yes, Renterรญa has seen all the trolling, and to Martinez and everyone else, he said: "STFU." Jokingly, of course.

id want a croissant

His mistake also revealed that a lot of other prom-goers don't know โ€” and don't care to know โ€” the difference between a "croissant" and "corsage."

@SophieMartini Sameee ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

hunter called my corsage a croissant last year ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tristan didnt even know what a corsage was until I told him like 3 days ago and now he either calls it a croissant or says it wrong ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
