Aloha Friday: Is It Tacky?

blogging memes, writing prompts

Here is how Aloha Friday works from Kailani's blog An Island Life:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

I was watching The View this morning and they were discussing how this girl received an email from a guy she went out on a date with that asked for her to pay half of the dinner bill he had paid because they weren't going to go out again. I was shocked that a guy would actually send an email like that after he had already paid for their date. If a guy offers to pay for a date, then I don't think he should ask for the money back later just because it didn't work out. Seems pretty tacky to me!

My Question For You This Week: Do you think it's tacky to ask for someone to ask for half the date's cost if they aren't going to go out again?

  2. No, I don't think they should if they offered to pay for the date. It is tacky and childish. Not to mention cheap and a reason why they shouldn't go out with them again.

  3. Beyond tacky,lol!


  4. Absolutely tacky! I had to read this out loud to hubby, he said "I don't think it's tacky, I think it's obscene!" :)

  5. Yah, someone didn't get taught how to be gentleman did they - how tacky

  6. Is it male or female asking?

    I saw if both parties know they aren't going to go out again, then they should be upfront so that each know to pay for their half.

    If it's a man asking if he should ask the girl, then pooh. Men are usually a bit more chivalrous but then it doesn't mean they should be taken advantage of.

    If it's a girl asking, then she shouldn't be going on a date with that person if she know it's a last date anyway.

  7. Completely tacky. I mean it is basically the same thing as giving a gift and then asking for half of the cost of the gift. They should have discussed this before the date.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. By the end of the dinner, you know if you want to go out with them again. If you don't, than pay your part of the bill. But, to go back after, and ask for money back is rude and cheap. I would be watching this person really carefully, that they aren't going to end up becoming a danger.

  9. I don't think it's tacky to ask to split the bill when it arrives, but by e-mail after you've bnoth gone home definitely is!
