“When the bill came, Mike said to put a certain amount on his card,” she recalled.
Mike requested to pay for less than a third of the total bill, so she confronted him and asked why. Mike became defensive and said he and Julie didn’t have the nachos.
She told him, “You made us wait almost an hour and a half past the reservation, and you’re the one who said to order an appetizer.”
Mike seemed angry and mumbled something under his breath but eventually complied, and they all split the bill evenly. However, Mike didn’t add a tip to his portion of the bill, so she and her husband had to cover that.
Later that night, his girlfriend Julie confronted her and told her she was wrong to make them pay for something they didn’t eat. Now, things are tense between her husband and Mike. But, despite that, she stands by what she did at dinner.
“It’s not about the money,” she added. “It’s about the disrespect. It’s plain rude to be an hour and a half late. No one was planning on getting an appetizer in the first place.”
Was she wrong to make Mike and Julie cover a third of the bill, or should she have let it go?
