The author behind postknown only as ColdBrewInSummer, said the dinner party was hosted by their friends.

Not being empty-handed, the duo gifted the host with a bottle of wine and enjoyed a scrumptious meal of steak.

But after leaving dinner and going home, they received a message demanding money for each of the hungry people.

Totally confused, the author wrote: ”I think this is crazy and I would never ask anyone to pay for their food if I invited them to my house!”

Seeking comments from fellow social media users, this person added: ”We’ve arranged to have them in a few weeks and I’m not asking them for anything. !

”I would never dream of doing that. I used to have friends in the past when I was a student and broke and I would make a big stew and tell everyone to bring a bottle!

”But I wouldn’t think of texting someone after that!!”

The post quickly received hundreds of comments, with the food bill being shared on the internet, as everyone was stunned when they were charged £20 each.

While some insisted that it was better to just pay and forget about the nasty incident, others were quick to defend the guest.

One thought: ”Excessive and extremely rude behavior.”

Meanwhile, several people have shared potential responses to the message, including one suggesting: ”Send them a message saying absolutely not.

”If you want to charge then you should tell the cost in advance so you can make an informed choice.

”Don’t do the polite thing and pay. Here’s how the bastards got out of it.”

Another agreed, suggesting an alternative: ”I’ll text back “Since you’re coming to us on X, can we pause that?”

“Then I won’t go out to dinner at their house anymore.”

‘Just text back and say the price of wine x so I’ll just leave it and never mind our place because you’re not the type of person we want to be friends with,’ another said.
