I dunno @Pika
I think the guy that sent the invoice was a total creep but the lobster scenario was a kid in school. His date ordered lobster and an $80 bottle of wine (he had a cheap bowl of pasta and his meal totaled $10).
I think people just seem out of touch with finances.
First off he should have ordered the bottle of wine and then he would have had control over the price and he should know how much a dinner at a restaurant costs at a restaurant he takes a date to. Rookie mistakes. And him having a cheap bowl of pasta is his own fault. He could have ordered whatever he wanted. If you dont' like how much she spent on dinner the correct thing to do is pay for the dinner and then don't go out on a second date.
But if he made her pay for her half he shouldn't have expected a second date.
This is just too funny and insane all at the same time lol! In Cali, you step out your front door that's already at least forty bucks in the making whatever the heck it is you're doing or going let alone on a date heheh..

Short version: Years ago, I took a former co-worker bowling. (I know enough not to butter my bread where I earn it) We met up with a couple of my friends. She was all over one of them. When we went to the counter to pay for the lane I told her her share was half. She paid. Never saw her again. Didn't care.
