Internet Snickers at ‘Greedy’ Woman Whose Drink Bill Took Chunk of Her Rent

Internet commentators went into a frenzy after a man told how a night out with colleagues left a woman staggering over rent.

In a viral reddit Post published on r/MaliciousCompliance, Redditor u/babybopp (aka the original poster or OP) said the group agreed to split the cost of dinner and drinks evenly, until a co-worker became enraged and demanded that everyone pay for the items they ordered and nothing more.

Titled, “Refuse to split the bill equally…ok…” the since-deleted post received more than 14,000 upvotes and 1,500 comments in the past nine hours.

“About 8 of us…ordered drinks and food,” OP began. “Boss were in town and bonuses [are] around the corner.”

The original poster continued to explain that the entire dinner party was drunk, saying that when the final bill arrived, a majority of their colleagues agreed to pay the same amount across the board.

But a colleague named “Shelly” had other ideas.

“We all agree to split the bill equally,” OP wrote. Drunk Shelly absolutely refuses.

“She says everyone pays for what they ordered. Despite trying to tell her to relax and divide fairly, she refuses,” OP continued. “So we say okay…[and] everyone gets their bill and pays.

“Apparently Shelly is greedy and had ordered top shelf whiskey and her bill was six times the next person’s bill,” OP added. “We had Shelly whine about the bill costing her rent. LOL.’

Dining and drinks with a group of friends or colleagues can be a great experience and a perfect opportunity to let loose outside the office.

It can also be extremely stressful, especially because of money.

While many seasoned groups have developed systems for determining who pays the bill at the end of a meal, modern trends have strayed from rotating payment.

Three years ago, an Intuit Mint survey found that nearly half of millennials ask for separate checks when dining out or dining out with friends.

The same survey also found that two-thirds of diners: little interest by dividing the final bill equally, instead choosing to pay exactly for their own food, drink and nothing more.

However, where millennials are more likely to request separate checks, younger groups are leaning towards online platforms such as Venmo and CashApp to get up after the meal is overinstead of negotiating the distribution of bills and tip percentages at the dinner table, according to The New York Times.

Colleagues enjoy dinner and drinks. Members of Reddit’s r/MaliciousCompliance forum were stunned after a man revealed that his colleague had a bar tab six times more expensive than the next person’s.

In the comments section of the viral Reddit post, many Redditors offered their idea of ​​the ideal dinner split, calling out the original poster’s “greedy” coworker for accidentally handing herself a much bigger bill than the rest of her contemporaries.

“So I basically agree you shouldn’t divide equally,” Redditor wrote to u/instinctz4 in the top comment of the post. “Especially by people like Shelly.”

“I usually want to split the bill, even if I ordered more than the average person,” Redditor reiterated to u/Rolling_on_the_river. “Why would anyone else pay for my s**t?”

Redditor u/FrankieMint, whose comment sparked a series of similar replies, describes their experience with a colleague who always tried to pay as little as possible, no matter what they ordered.

“I had a co-worker who always asked before ordering, ‘Are we breaking up, or are we both paying for our orders?'” they wrote. “If we even said, he ordered the most expensive items, and if we told you to pay for what you ordered, he got the cheapest. Every time.”
