Gabrielle on Tumblr shared this story; she was coming home from University to visit her family when it happened.
Her mother plans a weekly get-together with her friends, and the story is about one such get-together.
Martha, her mother’s friend was the one who hosted this week’s get-together. She went out of her way and brought snacks for her friends, and that included Gabrielle’s mom.
When Gabrielle’s mom thought that it was not required and got a bit too much then, she decided to pay Martha back. She handed $20 to Martha, but the host did not accept the money.
When after insisting for too long she did not accept the money then Gabrielle’s mom left the money on the counter, took the packets of snacks, and went home.
It turns out that Martha knew the tactics of her friend very well and decided to do something about it.
That’s when Gabrielle comes into the picture, when Martha’s mom went home she gave the packets of snacks to her daughter. When Gabrielle reached University she decided that she will eat the packets of snacks while studying so when she opened the packet, she did not believe what she saw.
Placed inside the packet was the $20 note neatly folded. She realized that her mother’s friend had played her mother. For a while, she contemplated whether to tell her mom about this or not. In the end, she sent a text to her mother saying that she has been played.
Her mother’s reply made her laugh very hard so much so that she was scared her roommate who was in the nearby room might wake up.
Therefore, Gabrielle not only had a good laugh over it but also ended up keeping the $20.
Well, this is what happens when you don’t accept the acts of generosity of your hosts.
