Is it acceptable to take your partner to a restaurant and then refuse to pay? Watch
Don't get me wrong I will complain about genuinely bad service or mistakes but I do it before eating at the appropriate time. It's very rare that the appropriate solution to any issue is a free meal, it would typically be a reduction or free item (eg drink or dessert).
After the meal is concluded by saying to the waiter that it wasn't quite up to scratch?
They very nearly did not refund it because I ate too much of the meal lol.
This is not something to be doing on a date brah to save money. You look cheap.
