71c for the plates, please!
Here in Ireland, you’re expected to pay your way for whatever glamping village or afternoon tea or cocktail workshop you’re attending for a hen party.
The price is all agreed beforehand, and you’d expect it to cover the willy straws and food as well as the activities – what you would not expect is to land home to an invoice for all the party essentials.
A disgruntled hen party attendee recently shared this itemised bill she received after the event to Reddit’s Bridezillas forum (we recommend having a good scroll, it’s full of gems).
The bill divides the expenses amongst the seven guests, and asks everyone to cough up 71c for their plates, 43c for the M&Ms, and 38c for a case of water. The original poster also said that the bill went on to include 28c each for paper napkins. Nice!
One Reddit user wondered what kind of party has $82 worth of pizza but only $23 worth of booze, to which the OP replied:
She said it was BYOB so I brought my own, but we also ended up having to pay for the alcohol she brought. The party wasn’t even fun because she was trying so hard to make it a picture perfect party that it seemed unnatural and more like a business transaction.
You don’t say. We dare the poster to reply saying they won’t pay the 71c for the plate because they didn’t use one. Would you pay up?
