TikToker Ashley Nicholls went on online to recount her story of a friend who charged her for dinner!
A Casual Dinner at a Friend’s House
On March 26, Ashley took to TikTok to share the perplexing story.
According to her, her friend had invited a group of people to a dinner gathering at her house.
Being Charged to Eat There
Much to their surprise, the host informed them that they would cover the cost of their own meals, specifically a baked potato and salad.
Extra for Sides
The TikToker expressed her bewilderment, asking if anyone had ever been invited to dinner only to be charged for the side items.
“She said we should bring our own steak and that each couple owed $12 for their baked potato and salad. Has anyone else ever been charged for sides when going to a friend’s house?” she asks.
Agreed to Pay
Amidst the unusual request, Ashley revealed her friends decided to humor their host by agreeing to pay the requested $12.
She Paid in Quarters
But they chose to pay in quarters, injecting a touch of humor into the situation.
Thousands of Views
Ashley’s TikTok video quickly garnered over 450,000 views, leaving viewers equally perplexed why guests were charged for a meal they had been invited to.
Eat Out Instead?
Commenters expressed their astonishment, with some suggesting they preferred dining at a restaurant like Texas Roadhouse.
The concept of bringing one’s own steak also baffled many viewers, who found the entire scenario unconventional.
Pay for Parking Next!
Some even wondered if additional charges, such as parking fees and utility costs, were also being levied.
And a Tip Jar…
Ashley humorously shared that one friend even brought a tips jar as a playful addition, further emphasizing the lighthearted nature of their response, despite paying with coins.
They’re Still Friends
In a follow-up video, Ashley clarified they all remained friends despite the unusual request, emphasizing that this was an isolated incident.
She playfully added that even if her friend requested payment at future gatherings, they would still attend with good humor.
Would You Charge to Have Friends Over?
The TikTok video sparked a spirited debate among viewers, with divided opinions on the appropriateness of charging guests for a hosted dinner.
Nevertheless, it reminds us that social interactions sometimes bring unexpected twists, leaving us to question the norms and etiquette surrounding such situations.
