Man Asks Woman to Pay Him Back for Drinks He Bought Because They Didn’t Go Home Together

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…

The text in question was from a boy saved in her contacts as “Danny from Atik”. Anyone familiar with Hull will know that Atik is a popular nightclub in the center of town, so it’s safe to presume that Chlo met “Danny from Atik” at the late-night hotspot.

Who says that chivalry is dead? Perhaps we’ll all give up on illusions of bagging a chivalrous, romantic partner after reading what Danny from Atik messaged Chlo…

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.

I mean, what was Danny from Atik thinking? Chlo was shocked at the gall of Danny’s request. I mean, who tries to get a girl to transfer cash for the drinks he had supposedly bought her on the night out?! Wait until you hear what the internet said about it all…

The worst part of Danny from Atik’s message is his assertion that, by purchasing drinks for Chlo, he expected some sort of sexual favor in return.

In 2019, it’s pretty disappointing to see that there are still guys who feel “owed” something if they buy you a drink. I mean, we’re talking post-Me Too Movement, after all. I’m not saying that Danny from Atik is the next Harvey Weinstein, but he clearly shares an inability to have healthy relations with the opposite sex.

If Danny from Atik’s identity became known, I’m sure he’d have to change his tactic towards the ladies… Any girl going near Danny now will need a hell of a lot of drinks to forget about this misdemeanor.

Evidently, Chlo wasn’t the only one to think that Danny’s behavior was not a-okay. Thousands of Twitter-users have since been in touch with the student paramedic and have responded to the thread.

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

Some suggestions were, admittedly, a bit out there…

With very few Twitter-users appearing to side with Danny from Atik.

Try explaining that to your mom, Danny from Atik.

But this is technically illegal and would mean that Chlo would be committing fraud…

Twitter really is an informative place.

A marvel way to send passive-aggressive memos, right?

‘”… well hello there!” let me just slide into your ATM…

In fact, one guy tried and tested this method and has since realized the flaw in using bank transfer as a means of communication.

Thankfully, Chlo wasn’t about to play ball.

“Skint” is a British slang term, meaning “there ain’t no money in the trunk,” “no mullah in the piggy bank,” ‘no funds to be drawn,” “broke,” “cleaned out,” “financially unavailable” etc, etc.

Cheers for that, Jerod!

Personally, I don’t even think it’s necessarily a gender issue. If I bought a round of drinks on a night-out for anyone – boys or girls – and then called round the next day to be re-reimbursed, I’d come across as a right schmuck.

But that’s not anyone else’s problem. Why not try disabling contactless on your card next time, Danny from Atik…

But, trust me, Danny from Atik, living off Fruit Loops for the rest of the month is never as fun as it sounds. And you just can’t ask pretty girls who don’t sleep with you for the money back.

With both the younger and older generations pitching in with their personal standpoints… @ToffeeSte83 considered Danny’s attitude to be a modern one, not shared by older guys like himself.

This user hoped that his son wasn’t treating woman like Danny from Atik did.

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…

Chlo hinted on the thread that the messages from Danny got worse.

Everyone wanted to see Danny try to dig himself out of the situation.

One Twitter-user even offered to buy Chlo drinks, if she revealed what happened next.

I guess, sometimes, being the bigger person is the best thing to do. Chlo even decided to put her temporary fame to good use and encouraged her new Twitter followers to sign a petition, which supports getting the UK government to give more funding to student paramedics. Chlo is a real catch. Sorry, Danny from Atik but I think you might have blown it. x
