In a TikTok video that went viral, a lady left her date because he could not pay $3 for cheese. In the video, the woman is seen walking as she speaks to her camera. She says he had just got back from a hinge date. They had scheduled to go to dinner at a restaurant. Her date seemed nice, and things were going well until the waitress came over to take their orders.
Declined the Cheese
The lady ordered branzino, and the guy said he would take a burger. She asked him how he like his burger and whether he wanted some cheese on his burger. He asked if the cheese would be extra, and she told him it would be $3 extra. He declined to buy the cheese.
Walked Out on Her Date
The lady was surprised, but she decided to go ahead and eat. He complained that one has to pay extra for everything these days, and she told him they are in NYC. They got their food. Once the lady was satisfied, she got up and told him she was going to the restroom for a second. She took her purse and went to the waitress and paid her bill. She then walked out of the restaurant and texted him that she had taken care of the bill; he should have gotten the cheese and then blocked him.
Tik Tokers Weigh In
TikTok users weighed in on this, and many thought the lady was too quick to judge, and her actions of leaving her date and blocking him reeled on the extreme end. Others congratulated her, saying she dodged a bullet. Here are some of the best reactions to this video.
Might Have Been an Overreaction
Sofia thought she may have overreacted, “I thought you were gonna say he didn’t want to pay the bill. Leaving for that was a bit too much.”
Jenna sides with the date, saying the cheese was overpriced, “Is this a real story? Because $3 is a lot for a piece of cheese, I agree.” Liz agrees, saying, “Nah, I’m with him; cheese should be included in the price, and $3 extra for a 25¢ slice of cheese is criminal.”
You Didn’t Give Him a Chance
Speeda thinks she should have listened to him first, “The problem is people are too quick to judge someone off one comment. You didn’t even give him a chance based on a piece of cheese.”
Annaliese supports the lady arguing that the date should not have complained about the price on the first date, “Nah, I don’t think she’s wrong. if it’s a first date & he’s complaining about the price, it’s a turn-off.” David Rocco supports Anna saying, “Dates are celebrations in a way. $3? Clearly, he preferred cheese. She’s right for walking. Piker moves by him.”
She Dodged a Bullet
Daniel says the guy dodged a bullet, “Bro dodged a major bullet. But hey, at least she paid for her own food.”
Lory argues that if the guy could not afford $3 then there was a problem, “You did it right! If he can’t afford 3 dollars, what awaits you later…”
Yessikatt thinks she failed a trial, “I think he was testing her, and she failed.”
He Might Have Been on a Budget
Nessakim argued that he probably was on a budget, “Jesus, that was messed up. He was probably a great guy, maybe living on a budget.”
Awest puts the scenario into perspective, “He can choose how he wants to spend his money, $3 for a slice of cheese is crazy. He didn’t tell you not to get cheese; he just decided not to.”
Her Behavior Is a Red Flag
Batman thinks her behavior is a red flag, “The guy was being smart, 3 dollars for cheese? That is illegal. In my opinion, you saved the guy. Your behavior was a major red flag.”
Sherry couldn’t figure out how he did something wrong, “Did I miss the part where he did something wrong?”
She Should Stick To Her Guns
Julie urged her to stay strong, “Lots of people are going to bash and bully you for what you did. Stick to your guns; you were turned off n are entitled to not want to see him again.”
Keep In Mind Some People Are Just Frugal
Anderson reminds her that some people choose to be frugal, “There are millionaires who still are cost-conscious; just because people are frugal doesn’t mean anything..”
