There are certain things that really grind me. I could probably think of a whole lot more than what I have listed here but I just needed to get this off my chest.
One of my pet hates is when people insist on splitting the bill especially when what the people I am with have ordered is way more than what I ordered *sigh*
It really sucks and I am always the one who ends up with the raw deal. It’s not just restaurants even. It’s anytime when people have not paid their own way. Like the time we went to FTV for a birthday party or something and everyone left without contributing towards the shooters and I had to pay a ridiculous amount of money in just so the bouncers would let me leave (and I maybe had three shots in total). Another time I went to Cool Runnings and the people I went with did not have any money but kept ordering shots and I had to pay the R650 bill.
Let’s not even talk about the night when we went to the Cricket and Billys’. I had to drive around and take and fetch everyone which was a tank of petrol. I organised the tickets for the cricket at Wanderers . I paid for all the drinks for these people at Billy’s and had nothing myself after someone messed my drink. I also then paid for McDonalds for everyone on the way home just cos I wanted for myself. Cost me a fortune that night and I didn’t even enjoy myself. #rant
Other pet hates of mine include:
Being undermined – when people undermine me; it’s one of the most frustrating things in the world
Two faced people as you never know where you stand with them from one day to the next
Being lied to… blatantly… over and over… by the same people
I might not be able to stop people undermining me but I can refuse point blank to split the bill when going out with people and I need to make it clear or just not go out with them ever again.
