My neighbor invited me out to dinner tonight as both of our husbands are out of town.
She had a coupon for TGIFridays for a buy one entree get the 2nd one free. When the bill came, she snatched it up and would not let me pay my share or leave the tip and she drove as well. I had ordered an entree and I had ordered a dessert to go to bring home to my daughter as a treat. She wouldn't let me pay at all.
So I said: "I'll treat next time." I realize that she only paid for one entree, 2 cokes and a dessert", but I still feel like I need to reciprocate (and we used her gas).And I feel bad that she paid for a treat I was going to buy my daughter as she had to stay home by herself.
I am planning on writing a Thank you note. But do you think that's overkill? I thanked her several times and I would like to reciprocate with dinner.
What would you guys do?
And I don't mind about the coupon. Heck, I'd use one if I had it.
