AIBU to think that I didn't mean stock up your cupboards when I said you can get a few treats?

I was having a film night with a friend,and we went to Sainsburys to get some sweets and crisps. I said it's my treat,get yourself a few things to enjoy while we watch the film.

AIBU to think a few things does not mean 2 giant Aero bars,a bag of 4 creme eggs,a giant Galaxy caramel.2 Walkers multipacks,a 2 litre bottle of Irn Bru, a bag of Starburst,a box of Maltesers and a bag of Fruit Pastilles?

Like an idiot I paid for it at the checkout,thinking that she was going to give me the money for it,but no,she didn't. This was all for her,and her alone btw.

It's not the money that's an issue,but AIBU to think she went a little OTT? And that she shouldn't be using it as an excuse to stock up her cupboard?

That is a lot... But you did say 'a few' things and I guess that's her definition of a few. God knows how she's tiny if she eats that amount in the space of one movie though!

"I just think she was taking the piss a bit."
A bit? A huge, lake full of piss!

She didn't eat most of it during the film.She left most of it at home,presumably for another day.

You should have said something 'where's the rest of the things I paid for?' or something. She's freeloading.

I had a friend like this I dont see her very often ( i can't afford too) last time we were staying so i said we will nip to the shops and get some shopping she filled her trolley and and her freezer and like an eejit I paid half and didnt see most of the food she bought as 2 of the 3 nights we got takeaway shock I think you need a wee reminder to get some snacks in before you invite her over again,

Well then it's simple. You say that you would like the cash for the items she didn't bring with her.

She is taking the piss with that, tbh.

If the film night was at yours wouldn't it have made sense for you to take all the snacks back to your house ?

Greedy cow. Whose house was the film night at? I'd have taken home most/all of the uneaten stuff if I'd paid for it!

Oh, just seen your update about her leaving most of it in her cupboards. Cheeky freeloader!!

The film night was at my house.She asked me for 'her stuff' and like an idiot I gave them to her,as we left the store.

I think she and I need to have a talk.

You certainly do.

Phew- in a way I'm relieved. I imagined someone actually eating that much in one sitting, and being transported to the nearest a&e in some sort of sugar coma!

But in answer to you AIBU- She's taking the proverbial. Dig out the receipt. Take off whatever she ate at your house (as that was "your treat")- highlight the rest- and get her to pay up!

Your 'friend' is a grabbing cunt.
