Woman sparks debate after request she makes to dinner party guests… and many people think it’s shocking | The Sun
A WOMAN has sparked a fierce debate online after revealing the host of a dinner party requested everyone paid for their meal.
The intense debate took place on the popular parenting forum Mumsnet, where one of the guests shared the story.
The author behind the post, only known as ColdBrewInSummer, said the dinner party was organised by their friends.
Not being ones to ever arrive empty handed, the duo gifted the hosts a bottle of wine and enjoyed a scrumptious meal of steaks.
But after leaving the dinner and going home, they received a message that was asking for money for each of the hungry eaters.
Completely baffled, the author wrote: ''I thought this was crazy and I would never ask anyone to pay for their food if I invited them over!''

Seeking opinion from fellow social media users, the person added: ''We’ve already arranged to have them to ours in a few weeks time and I’m not asking them for anything!
''I wouldn’t dream of ever doing that. I’ve had friends over in the past when I was a student and broke and I would just do a big stew and tell everyone to bring a bottle!
''But it wouldn’t cross my mind to text someone after!!''
The post soon racked up hundreds of comments, where the food bill divided the internet, as people were just as stunned they had been charged £20 each.

Some, meanwhile, shared potential responses to the text, with one suggesting: ''Send them a message back saying absolutely not.
''If you want to charge then you should say costs upfront so you can make an informed choice.
''Don't do the polite thing and pay up. This is how the f***ers get away with it.''
Another agreed, recommending analternative: ''I'd text back "As you are coming to ours on X date shall we just call it quits?"
''After that I wouldn't go to dinner at theirs again.''
''Just message back and say the wine cost x so I will take that off and don’t bother coming to ours as you are not the type of people we wish to be friends with,'' someone else said.
