After work on Wednesday, I met one of my guy friends for drinks. We went to the Skirvin. DH ended up meeting us there - the tab may have been $40 for all three of us - I paid with a Skirvin giftcard. No big deal. Well, I met my friend again on Friday for drinks - DH met us there - our friend had to leave in a rush and WE PAID AGAIN. The tab? $120. I had a $10 glass of wine and DH had two drinks that totaled $20. So, $30 for our piece of the tab. Our friend had been there awhile drinking.....I didn't realize DH had paid for all of the drinks until I got into our bank account this morning. I am SO PISSED. Since December, we have been saving like mad to get our guest bathroom renovated. Now that the reno has started, I am a nervous wreck that the labor cost will go substantially over our contracted amount (it usually does) so we have continued to live extremely frugally. I could not believe he paid for our friend's drinks without giving it a second thought ESPECIALLY after I paid for our drinks on Wednesday.
So, the question is, can I go back to my friend and ask for some money to pay for the drinks? It would be one thing if the tab was more "even" = but he had been drinking there for hours - and $90 of the tab was his....what do you think - super tacky?
