A woman is asking the internet for advice after her friend demanded she and her family pay for the dinner they were invited to.
Taking her issue to Mumsnet, the woman revealed that her friend had invited her to a dinner party at her house only to look for financial compensation after the meal was over.
“We were invited to a friend’s house for dinner. Took a bottle of good wine with us, we wouldn’t ever go empty handed,” the lady in question wrote in her viral post.
“We had a good meal, but they sent us a message after asking for money for each person. I thought this was crazy and I would never ask anyone to pay for their food if I invited them over.
“Am I being unreasonable to be a bit annoyed? We’ve already arranged to have them to ours in a few weeks’ time and I’m not asking them for anything!”
In the update, the woman also revealed that they were charged $25 per head even though she believes they didn’t eat that much food. She also admitted she “can’t get over” this incident despite them being “great friends” otherwise.
After the story went viral, baffled viewers suggested it was weird of the dinner hosts to demand payment after the deed while others pondered what the reasoning behind it could be.
“If they knew they were right they would ask for money upfront. It’s like they’re trying to guilt trip you into paying,” someone said.
“That’s incredibly rude. If they couldn’t afford to host then they should have asked everyone over and to bring a plate of food,” another wrote.
A third suggested: “Just message back and say the wine cost x so I will take that off and don’t bother coming to ours as you are not the type of people we wish to be friends with.”
