This topic was highlighted in a recent Reddit post in which a man makes his girlfriend pay for his children’s meals repeatedly after he forgets his credit card.
"Guess I forgot it"
The author starts the post by saying that she has been dating her boyfriend for nine months. Every time they go out he forgets to bring his credit card, making the author pay for himself and his kid as well. It got so worse that she ended up being broke for two months.
Having said that, they had arranged to go for dinner that day. She had just received the payment from her second part-time job. She sent him a text reminding him not to forget his credit card but he laughed it off.
At the restaurant, he encouraged his kids to try new and expensive dishes. Before they started eating, he realized that he had forgotten his credit card. He looked sorry for his actions and requested the author to pay one last time. Since she hadn’t had even a bite, she grabbed her things and left.
Later, he called her and berated her for leaving him and his kids when they didn’t have any money. He had to cancel the dinner and take his kids home hungry. He also said he had to reevaluate their relationship because she was willing to let his kids starve because of her selfishness.
What do you think? Should the author have paid for their dinner when it could have possibly left her broken for the month? Share your thoughts below.
