This girl was sent an invoice from a guy she ghosted, then he went a step further
I'm off the opinion that people should be taught dating etiquette in school, because frankly there are a hell of a lot of people out there who just don't seem to get it. They don't have a clue about how to behave, and exhibit the kind of behaviour that would be spoilt and obnoxious even in a four-year-old-child, let alone a fully grown adult.
Something about dating just seems to bring out the worst in people, and I'm sure we can all remember a date that we went on with good intentions that turned out to be a total car crash. But if you want an example of some serious entitlement, then look no further.
Recently, a young woman named Amanda Burnett, a nurse who hails from Chicago, Illinois, took to Twitter to share her story of a cringeworthy encounter with a guy who was either very offended or else, just super-stingy. Amanda had been on a dinner date with this dude a few days previously, but unfortunately for her, the sparks just weren't flying.
However, rather than reject him straight away, Amanda elected to simply ghost him instead. She stopped answering his calls, and hoped that he would take a hint and cease with the unwarranted advances. Big mistake.
On April 3. Amanda received an invoice (that's right, an invoice: you read that correctly) from the dude in the mail, which charged her in full for her portion of the meal. As you can see from the image above, which she posted to Twitter, the letter did indeed look very official, and all told, he believed that Amanda owed him around $40.
Yup, I think this guy thinks he's entitled to sex, and that now he's missing out on it he wants his money back. Sorry man; I'm afraid it doesn't work that way.
In her initial tweet, Amanda stated: "I’m posting this on Twitter bc it can prob go viral honestly. Got this in the mail from a guy I went on a date with a few weeks back because I didn’t text him back." But that wasn't the end of the story.
The hapless suitor then texted Amanda, and like some kind of loan shark, asked her to pay him back immediately so she would incur "penalty fines." Wow; way to make yourself look even less attractive. As you can see below, Amanda was having none of it, and told him exactly where he could stick his invoice.
However, I think there is a lesson to be learned here, which is that being ghosted sucks for everyone involved. I'm not saying that it excuses this kind of behaviour, but maybe Amanda should have thought about letting her amorous date down gently, instead of giving him the cold shoulder. Still, I'm pretty confident that she's never going to fork over that $40. I'm not sure I would either.
