We've all had dates go awry, but, fortunately, in this modern world of online dating, a simple swipe left will make it all go away.
Ghosting gets a bit of a bad rap, but once you hear what happened to one unsuspecting dater, I think you'll agree that, sometimes, erasing a bad date from your phone, and your life, is the smartest thing to do.
Student paramedic, Chlo Matthews, went on a night out in the city of Hull, UK, where she attended university. While out and about, celebrating the end of her exams with her friends, Chlo met a boy.
We all know that, in the madness of a night out, it can be hard the next day to keep track of who you spoke to. Any typical student's phone is laced with unfamiliar saved contacts with vague, and often hilariously specific, descriptions. Saved contacts such as "Carl Builder," "Simon Lookslikegarfunkel," and "Emily WingAttack" are classic examples of a student night out...
When Chlo Matthews checked her phone the morning after the night before, she had received a text message.
The guy that Chlo met on the night at Atik wasn't texting to ask her out, though.
Clearly, Danny from Atik had woken up with regrets.Who knows how big of a hit Danny's bank account took on the night in question... But the reason that he wanted his money back was so gross.
Worth a shot eh?
"Wasn't really worth my time was it lol x"
"I paid for the Uber last night- does that mean my housemate owes me a back rub?"
"Make that a double, double, double, thanks!"
Chlo shared the text message exchange on her Twitter page and the post went viral.
Some Twitter-users kept their responses clear and simple...
@chlojmatthews8 What a cock.— 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐲 (@𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐲)1559471392.0
Some debated what Chlo should respond to Danny.

People's creative ideas kept on pouring...
@chlojmatthews8 @mnrrntt Transfer him 1p with the reference “for the virgin” please— Rachel Hawkins (@Rachel Hawkins)1559460306.0
This guy's idea was genius...
@ourrachblogs @chlojmatthews8 @mnrrntt Try ‘anal bleach refund’ instead looks great on a bank statement— russrusslovemuss (@russrusslovemuss)1559460738.0
That'd show him!
@chlojmatthews8 @SheRa_Marley Say ‘sure’, get his bank details and sign him for a £20/mo donation to an animal charity or something.— juux (@juux)1559460924.0
Thanks for keeping us on the straight and narrow, O'Cleary!

One Twitter-user made this smart suggestion...
@chlojmatthews8 should have transferred a penny with an cutting insult in the payment ref. would have come out on bank statement. 😊— speagle (@speagle)1559420490.0
"Hey ex that's blocked me on all social media platforms..."
I mean, maybe it's not advice that we should really take...
@speagle_uk @chlojmatthews8 I tried this once with an insult to natwest. Would you believe it blocks naughty words?… https://t.co/aAwri6HYgS— Dan Flower (@Dan Flower)1559491849.0
But what did Chlo do? Did she send Danny from Atik the money?
@Spara_Sally Of course not I’m skint— Chlo Matthews (@Chlo Matthews)1559392344.0
For those that don't know what "skint" means...
Twitter-users were happy to explain the British slang on the thread...
@chlojmatthews8 @Spara_Sally Skint is british for "penniless" according to google.— Jerod 🌹: Black Lives Matter. (@Jerod 🌹: Black Lives Matter.)1559544191.0
Skint or not, Chlo doesn't owe that boy a dime.
I'd probably have a lot more money at the end of the month...
We all enjoy feeling like a big baller every now and again..
Chlo's post opened up an interesting discussion on the etiquette of courting.
@ourrachblogs @chlojmatthews8 Sorry I know I am just shocked of the behaviour of my sex. Maybe I am too old or old fashioned.— Toffeeste83 (@Toffeeste83)1559460920.0
And ToffeeSte83 wasn't the only older guy to be unimpressed by Danny's behavior.
@collins_faron @chlojmatthews8 Shocking behavior too...I’d be gutted if I knew my son was behaving the same...— TheeEarlOfHell (@TheeEarlOfHell)1559465673.0
I'm sure Worried Twitter Dad's son is much nicer to girls than Danny from Atik...But who's to say that Danny from Atik wasn't Worried Twitter Teacher's ex-student? It is a small world, after all...
Whoever Danny from Atik is, many Twitter-users were left asking what happened next.Chlo hinted on the thread that the messages from Danny got worse.
Twitter cried out for more goss.
