The main reason I’m not siding with this bint is because she deliberately didn’t redact his phone number when she posted his invoice online. This shows you what kind of callous jerk she is. Also, she made a private matter public and then ran and hid when she didn’t receive universal praise for what she did.
After drinks and dinner with the unnamed man, Amanda Burnett decided to not take their relationship further. She ignored his text requesting to go on a second date the next day.
A few weeks later, Burnett received a letter from him, including a bill for her half of their date. Naturally, she shared her experience on Twitter.
“A guy just mailed me a bill for our dinner a few weeks ago because I didn’t text him back,” she wrote.
She posted the message alongside a photo of the invoice, which broke down what he was supposedly owed: $20 for bar costs, $14.50 for her meal of pulled pork tacos, a $1.99 “processing fee,” sales tax of $2.56, and shipping and handling, which came to $0.47.
In total, her bill came to about $40.
While many Twitter users agreed that it was a petty move by the anonymous man, others called Burnett cruel for ghosting him.
“If you don’t have the decency to text the guy back he’s in every right to make you pay for the meal,” one wrote. “Only fair!”
“So many girls just expect the guy to pay for everything,” chimed in another critic.
Burnett ended up making her Twitter account private after the backlash.
“Cracks me up how people instantly are like, ‘well why didn’t YOU text him back??? You just wanted a free meal??’ YOU AS A WOMAN ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO GIVE A MAN ANYTHING IN EXCHANGE FOR A CHEAP DINNER,” she argued.
You know what cracks me up? Women claiming there is a “wage gap,” women claiming they are treated unfairly, women demanding to be viewed no differently than a man, but built into our culture is this notion that a man pays for everything on dates.
