22. Yeah, I don't know who asked who out on the date, but
Its still a crappy, manipulative game to pull. basically the whole issue of bill paying and the gravity people put on it is just a huge source of annoyance to me in the first place - its one of my pet peeves as it suggests a shallow preoccupation with money (assuming neither parties are indigent). since I was like 10 I remember being severely irritated in such situations when my parents would have these fake, petty squables with relatives and friends when the bill would come and I'd just want to bang the table and shout "Somebody just pay the thing or split it or whatever but for Christ sake shut the fuck up!"
