(someone) didn't even (do something)!

Use this expression when you're angry about someone's behavior. You think that there's a basic standard, but this person didn't meet that standard. For example:

He didn't even call you on your birthday? What a jerk!

In this example, you actually think that this person should have done more than call. He should have sent a gift or taken this person out for dinner.

Here are some more examples:

They didn't even offer to help me.

It took over an hour for them to bring us our food, and they didn't even apologize!
