$8.60. That’s how much Liam asked this girl to repay him after he purchased a drink for her at The Viper Room, a bar (or club, whatever) in England.
Late last week, Abby (@abbyfent17 on Twitter) posted a screenshot of her text conversation with this guy asking for his money back after things didn’t go his way. And by “his way,” I mean sex. We’re talking about Abby not having sex with Liam, and Liam wanting her to repay him for the drink he bought.
She took a poll and asked her followers if she should pay the man his money, and the results went pretty much as you’d imagine.
Do I think men should pay for drinks every time there’s a romantic transaction taking place? No, I don’t, because I’m all about equality and empowering women. It’s 2016 and splitting bills is as acceptable asking people to throw in for an Uber. But where Liam botched this entire situation? By waiting “a few weeks” to comb through his finances only to decide, “You know what? Screw it. I’m charging that Abby bird for the quid she owes me for that drink at The Viper Room.”
A few weeks, man? Really? I’d have more respect for you if you sat on the sidewalk outside your flat begging for money from innocent bystanders than I do for you now that you’ve directly asked her. Pull yourself up and get yourself together. .
