Long winded question coming. We went to Madison for the Badgers (Badgers sucked) vs. Spartans, Big Ten game yesterday and then went out to dinner with my wife’s family who all went to the game. Counting us, 8 people. Get to the restaurant and there is a half-hour wait, so I buy everybody a drink at the bar. OK, we get seated and my brother in law requests separate checks…no problem. Him and his wife, two daughters, one husband and one grandchild and us. I don’t know why but this is just rubbing me the wrong way. The checks come and for his daughter whose husband couldn’t make the game, he doesn’t offer to pay. Wasn’t an expensive meal, it was at a brewpub and she had a burger. I didn’t say anything and my wife says get over it, her brother is a tightwad, but it just irked me. I would never say anything, but what would you have done over the check? Personally, if it was my family, I would have picked up all of their meals, maybe just not ours. Money isn’t an issue. He’s retired collecting a handsome state pension +SS and he’s an CPA doing tax returns on the side. Maybe I just don’t like him and this was further reason why. Sorry, I just needed to vent.
