A few years back when I was 'tinternet dating I met up with this bloke who was supposed to take me to a press screening of a film. He cocked up the date for the screening, we turned up a week early, after 15 minutes at shouting at the bemused woman on the ticket desk turned to me with the immortal words "Well I suppose as this isn't working I might as well take you to dinner".
We went to Wagamama . . . Cheapo cheapo food, and the bill came to like £18.70 with drinks. Now in my book that means a tenner each goes on the little plate and that's the tip sorted as well . . . He practically pulls out a pen & paper to work out 'his share' as we had split a starter he hadn't liked & I had polished off what he left . . . The waiter kept coming and being sent away as he still hadn't figured out what he thought was his. After about 20 or so minutes of this utter stupidity I grabbed his wallet removed a tenner to put with mine and practically threw it at the waiter.
For some strange reason I went to a pub with him afterwards to round off the evening instead of running for the hills. It was an olde world old mans pub where the bar staff tend to ignore females & I managed to order the drinks but they went to him for the cash, as he had bought the first round in the pub we met in,I gave him a tenner to cover the round which he gave to the barman and then pocketed my change !!!!!!
Tight was not the word . . . Betty was a blinking on them banknotes the few times she saw daylight . . . Needless to say I didn't return his calls !
