A man has incited a debate on social media after asking a lady for a $35 refund after she rejected him after their third date together.
As per The Daily Mirror, the high-level drama was shared on Twitter a week ago by a user named Alex Colbroth.
Alex, who hails from Milwaukee in Wisconsin, was shocked when she declined to get together again with a man she’d matched with on a dating app, and was subsequently presented with a bill for the last three dates they’d been on.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday (February 25), Alex shared a screenshot of the message she’d got from the unidentified man, and she posted the picture with title: “It’s the audacity for me.”
The Text reads:
“Hi Alex, hope you’re doing well. Would you mind letting me know what your Venmo is?
“The reason I ask is since you and I won’t be seeing each other anymore, it’s only fair to ask for equal payment from you for the dates we went on. I believe it was 3 separate times we went out bars/restaurants where I paid for us both each time.
I’d say $35 is more than fair for your food and drinks that I got during those dates. I view that as a fair girl, I hope you’ll consider reimbursing me. Thanks! “
Obviously, Alex’s tweet immediately went viral. Her post has now received more than 11,000 retweets and more than 185,000 responses at the time of composing, and various other Twitter users have shared their thoughts on the man’s request, with many bemoaning or mocking his behavior.
One person said: “This man’s dignity was worth $35 in his own eyes. Amazing.”
A second one added: “My ex did this too after 2 years. She asked for 5k back and when I didn’t pay that…I ended up paying more in an emotional damages suit. People really are the worst.
A third one said: “I had a guy ask me to pay him back for a $5 movie when I said I didn’t think it was going to work.”
While some people supported the man who asked for the refund.
One said: “I can’t see myself being this petty but what is the issue, he’s clearly broke and isn’t getting any value from you lol
Another one added: “honestly more amazed with all the ppl shaming poor ppl in the replies.
