 Tonight my boyfriend and I went out to dinner with another couple. It's my boyfriend's friend and his girlfriend, so the guys decided where to go. My boyfriend suggested moderate to low priced restaurants (think Friday's, Carraba's) and his friend suggested a restaurant that is wayyyy pricier. We agreed to go anyway because 1) we figured we could aim cheap and 2) I had a gift card there.

My boyfriend and I's total cost was $28, but his meal got comped because they forgot to make it, so it came out to only $16. The other couple's total cost was $78. We all split an appetizer that was $10.

I brought a gift card that was $50 and we put $20 of the check of it. Then my boyfriend and I were discussing if it was dick of us to not just use the whole gift card toward the bill. I didn't feel obligated to because most of the gift card would go to their portion of the check as they clearly got things that were way more expensive, and we still have $30 left on the card we could use for a whole other meal. At the same time though, I feel like I looked stingy and I don't really know these people so who knows what they thought.

Was it rude of me not to use the whole gift card toward the check?
