Well, this sure is a weird story…
And it comes to us from a place that is chock-full of weird stories about drama and the people who go through it…
Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page!
Take a look at this tale and stick around to see what readers thought about it.
AITA for not paying my boyfriend Uber prices for picking me up from work?
“I’m temporarily working somewhere else. It is £20 to get an Uber home. I used the app often enough that I get regular discounts up to 30%. My boyfriend offered to pick me up from work after I told him the price of the Uber sometimes. He got us home. It’s a 30 minute ride, about 20 miles. Afterwards he asked me to pay him; I said fine I don’t mind paying petrol costs. He said I’d have to give him £20 because he went out of his way to get me and I would have given it to the Uber driver anyway. He insists that it makes no sense for me not to pay him what I’d would give to the Uber driver. I told him that’s different because he’s my boyfriend and an Uber driver is a service.
I told him I’d give him £10 which he wasn’t happy about it.
AITA for not giving him what I would give for an Uber driver?
It’s not like I’d pay the price of a Starbucks coffee if my BF made me a cup of coffee.”
Whoa! And here’s what Reddit users said about this situation.
One reader said that she should start charging him for making him food if he’s gonna act like this.
Another Reddit user made it short and sweet: she should dump this clown.
This individual pointed out that he was the one who offered to pick her up and then he acted like this…not cool.
And finally, people in relationships shouldn’t pull things like this…ugh.
