Last Saturday, my friend and I went to haji lane to grab a drink. We found an outdoor seat and ordered our drinks during happy hours. It was like $10 for 2 bottles of corona beers. There is this chinese guy (Alex) came to our table and wanted us to do him a favour by switching our table with him because his friend has a dog and the restaurant is not okay with having pets for the indoor seating. We were just started drinking so I offered him that if he is willing for the 4 drinks we were having at the moment, I would switch it with him. He said okay. (FOR MANY TIMES)
so my friend and I changed to the indoor seating instead. His friends came to talk to us. And one of his Caucasian friend from UK(Gerald or something) keep asking us whether we want to order more drinks. We rejected multiple times because we didn’t want to drink anymore and also didn’t want to spend so much on drinks as the happy hours had over. (We didn’t initiated him to buy us any drinks!!!) He insisted on buying us drinks and ordered for 3 glasses of gin and tonic that costs $24 per glass for us and himself.
When the drinks had arrived, the waitress asked for the payment for the bill because they are doing the closing for the day. The bill was $130 + which includes the first around of drinks that Alex had promised to pay and second of drinks that Gerald had promised to pay, right?
This is the best part. Gerald refused to pay. And then went on and say his card is not working etc. I was like, are you expecting us to pay for your drinks right now? He had the nerve to respond and said “yes, I am not paying”. I have never met anyone as shameless as this dude. The best masterpiece of Mother Earth.
So I went to tell Alex, the first round of drinks should be on him (as promised) and the second round of drinks should be on your friend and right now your friend is refusing to pay for his own drinks. Do you know Alex said? He told me to fxxx off and then he shames me publicly as in I am some kind of girls who can’t pay for their own drinks.
Side note: I heard him whispered to the waitress, saying that he would only pay for the “certain types” of drinks. Seem like there is some kind of “agreements” were going on between him and the restaurant.
Anyway I am fine if he can’t afford the “happy hours drinks” even though he had promised but the way of him humiliating us is disgusting.
After that, I didn’t want to drag the waitress into this mess so I just give out my card and paid for the bill. (Even though there is $74 worth of drinks weren’t ordered by me or my friend). And then we left the place.
The intention of this post is to warn y’all on this group of shameless people you might encountered while y’all go to haji lane :)) please do not fall into their trap. Thanks for reading!
