Today, my mom and I went out to a fancy and expensive restaurant per her request; she told me it was her treat. After we ate our meals and the large check came, she excused herself to the bathroom. She didn't come back. I was dine-and-dashed by my own mother. FML

What are parents teaching their kids these days?

Sounds like quite the role model you've got there.

That the servers do all the hard work for no pay! I hate dine and dashers, despicable people, let alone an adult teaching their child that. Disgusts me.

She could have just told you she didn't have enough money. It would be embarrassing but surely better than dine-and-dashing your own child. Unless your mom's a total bitch all along, in which case, FYL OP.

Sounds like she's a total bitch because it was her idea and she said it was her treat.

22- if the mom knows she is going to a fancy, expensive restaurant, then she should've brought enough money

I hope you brought money. Even though she was supposed to pay it's always good to have cash on you. And when you see her again make her pay you back.

Or, if OP wanted to guarantee that the business received their money but didn't want to pay her mother's bill OP could have talked to the manager about what happened, paid her half of the tab and gave all of the mother's information (Name, address, phone number) to the restaurant. The business wants the money, not to put someone behind bars (in cases such a this).

That's a good idea. I'll have to remember that if I am ever dine-and-dashed.

I'm sorry but that's just too funny. Lol, but really mean too. But really funny, if my mom or dad did that I'd laugh so hard but be so pissed that I had to pay o.O

You seem to be conflicted at the moment.

She did kind of raise you, so you're even. Sarcasm.

OP could have been raised by an aunt and is visiting their mom for a meal.

Wow lol. Get her back somehow, Karma's a bitch. It was just too good to be true. Sorry OP.

Noor, is this another post by you? Has your Mother been a total bitch again?

Oh don't worry, karma is a serious bitch, just like your mom apparently.

I really can't stand assholes like that, especially when they're supposed to be someone that is supposed to support, love, and cherish something as close as a child.

Sorry, OP. Did you call her on your phone?

BellaBelle_fml 23

No, she called her mom on her B.S.
