My Boyfriend ‘Forgets’ His Credit Card Every Time We Go Out To Eat, So I Have To Pay For Everyone

After a few months of dating, a woman noticed a pattern each time they went out to dinner. She eventually grew weary of the circumstance and took action based on her emotions.

After nine months of dating, a 32-year-old woman and her 39-year-old boyfriend—who had two small children—had a heated dispute over something he was doing to her on a regular basis.

The woman then went to Reddit to see if her response to the circumstance was incorrect. Online users offered their opinions on her boyfriend and offered advice on how to handle her predicament.

The woman was worried about her behavior because it occurred in front of her boyfriend’s kids, and he had called her selfish for not taking their needs into account.

The woman revealed that they went out once a week to restaurants because her boyfriend’s kids like going there. Nevertheless, her partner would inadvertently “forget” his card at home every time they went out to dinner.

The girlfriend would make her pay the bill every time he would forget his card. She claimed that although she hadn’t been bothered at first, she had been left penniless because she had paid for supper numerous times in the preceding month.

The woman was heading out to supper with her boyfriend’s kids one evening after receiving her paycheck from her second part-time job. She texted him to remind him to bring his wallet because she knew he frequently “forgot” it. Her lover dismissed the text with a laugh.

When they arrived at the restaurant, her boyfriend’s children ordered many new things off the menu, which the woman said were relatively pricey.

Before they dove into their meals, the woman asked her boyfriend about his wallet to ensure he had remembered to bring it this time around. When she asked about it, her boyfriend had a shocked expression and patted his pockets, looking for the wallet.

After searching for his wallet for a while, he looked at the woman with an ashamed expression and said, “Guess I forgot it in the other pair of jeans that I thought I was going to wear.”

The woman’s boyfriend asked her if she could pay for dinner this time, but the woman had had enough and grabbed her things, ready to leave the restaurant without getting the chance to eat dinner.

When her boyfriend saw that the woman was leaving, he demanded to know what she was doing and where she was going. She told him she was not prepared to pay for him and his children again and walked out of the restaurant.

Later, the woman’s boyfriend phoned her to tell her she was selfish for leaving him and his children in that situation. The woman responded that she would not pay for him and his children each time they went on a date because she didn’t feel it was fair.

The man yelled that he had forgotten his wallet and that she had shown no sympathy for him and his children. He also told her he had to cancel their food order and take his children home hungry because he could not afford their meals.

The couple got into an argument, and the woman’s boyfriend told her he would need to relook at how she was treating his children. He reiterated that she was willing to let them go hungry because of her selfishness.

What would you have done if you were the woman? Do you think she was right to walk out on her boyfriend and his children after he forgot his wallet, or should she have paid for them and discussed it with her boyfriend after they left the restaurant?
