justify my feelings!|
my partner and i took a road trip to tennessee for a gamers meet up. we decided to split the costs of hotel room, gas, and food for 4 days. i got $150 US out from the bank (which cost me nearly $160 CDN), and up until now, it seemed like that would be enough (we leave tomorrow morning, and i had about $50 left). last night, there was a huge gathering at a certain restaurant, and it was my turn to pay. i left to go back to the hotel before my partner (all-night restaurant; it was nearly midnight, and i was tired), so i gave him $30 to pay for the meal. i didn't expect it to be more than $20 (eating out for the two of us rarely costs more than that, especially since there was no alcohol).
this morning, when, i asked for change, there was none. my meal was only $7. i looked at the restaurant's menu online to check prices, and my partner's meal was nearly $15! plus tip, which my partner is very generous with. so, there's $5~10 that i'm out now, which is actually kind of big deal for me because i'm a student, no job, having to pay rent, bills, and groceries, pretty much totally dependent on my parents for money. i can't afford to be spending even as little as $5 beyond what i need.
how pissed off should i be at my partner for getting an expensive meal and spending all the money i gave him (especially since i was assured it wouldn't be much more than $20)? i told him that i can't afford to take out any more cash, so he's going to have to pay me back somehow. am i alright to be angry at him?
