So, extended family casual get together in the sun. Probably 18 of us. Let's get fish and chips says someone. Orders taken, someone goes to get them. Sister, who is fucking loaded, isn't too keen to pay for her and her two childrens share as there was was no receipt. My knickers are firmly ina twist about this. My thinking is you just throw money in for what you think it will be. AIBU?

No pay no eat! Did she think they were given free because there was no receipt?

Phone the chippy and ask them how much what she had cost.

100%! Is this a first?

Yes, what was her plan then? Pay zero? How does she justify that?

Depends on the group. If everyone just chucks in what they think you run the risk that everyone underestimates and then it's always the same person/people that end up putting in the extra.

She has form, if we do combined gifts she will calculate it to the nearest 10 cents. I mean, the worst case scenario is that she pays an extra dollar or two surely for fish and chips. We have another two family things coming up and I am already grumpy about having to account doe every fucking cent.

Watch she doesn't count the chips and try to figure how much less she has to pay for being a chip short..😀

No wonder shes loaded

Either phone the chip shop and ask how much her share would be, with conversation on speaker so everyone can hear, or check on line to see if there is a menu with prices. Do NOT let her get away with paying nothing.

Then she can go without.

Her children should have some, though.
