See me see trouble o, is it now a crime to be invited to a birthday dinner. I didn't think so until I went for one this weekend and was asked to pay, I was in shock like what?!, so what would have happened if I wasn't holding any extra cash and I had only my cab fare? One guy was actually arguing, like this doesn't happen in my home country and he was not paying a dime, you asked us to celebrate your birthday with you, why didn't you say we were meant to pay our way. He insisted he would have gladly stayed in his house and boiled rice and fried chicken stew(his words not mine) and will not have bothered to come to pay 30 pounds for some tasteless food(which was not true). At this point I was struggling not to laugh; it was really annoying the guy and you could see he was having none of it. Me I said something to that effect briefly ,but shortly after just brought out the money, while mentally telling myself to always ask about things like this when invited to a "birthday party”. The celebrant didn't even bat an eyelid when she asked for the money, but the guy sef didn't move an inch with his stance, we all had to plead with him to pay at least half, which he later did. Lesson learnt -there is no free dinner in the UK!
This reminded me of the time my friend took us to double 4 for her birthday, we had enjoyed ourselves, made a lot of noise, the usual teenage shenanigans.O.k time to pay, and that’s how she started counting the money o, only for her to announce it wasn't enough. We looked at her like you must be joking, who will come and wash plate in double 4, we told her "my friend better count the money again o", can u imagine after doing butter throughout she now expects us to start relaying tales to the waiter. Thank God sha, the issue was that because the notes were new, some were sticking together; so after all no washing of plates.Phew!I can imagine how the gist would have spread round school then, it would have turned into Chinese whispers!
P.S.I ended up not going to the London eye, I saw the queue and I was not like there was no way I was going to be doing that. Maybe next time I would get there early and not stroll there at 3.45.Those people are making money o, at 14.50pounds and they still have that kind of long queue.
