£ is almost equal to $. Euros have a bit of a higher value. Oh and 20% percent is usually a good tip. Maybe you had bad service, just saying though.

What're the odds of it being exactly 100 dollars? Were you on a date with Monk? :P Op, stupidity is sexy! getchu someee(:

hold on , here... he took you to a restaurant, paid, and spent his gas money on you (most likely) , an you're whining cause he can't do simple math? wow I feel bad for him. youre being so critical of the dude.. give him a break!

Don't be so judgmental, he was obviously nervous and didn't want to make a mistake. My boyfriend isn't the most smartest boy buy I still appreciate the fact that he tries:)

I agree with MissBunny, you had someone pay for everything and show you a good time, I don't see how this is so horrible... "Oh no I went out with someone and he paid for everything!! T_T I'm posting this on FML" =

don't be to rough on him? no. isn't that why our whole generation is fucking stupid just like this huge retard, don't go easy on idiots. push people to be smarter. (btw nerves shouldn't effect how well you find 15 percent of 100)

The price of living is much more than that of North America in England. That's still an expensive meal though, especially for a first date.

245 yeah I feel you on that . still, this guy was really sweet to her. (so it seems) You dont realize how rare that actually is these days. whether it's a girl being sweet or a guy.

248. that's not fair. stereotypes like that make it hard for guys to get girls to like us. it takes so much now adays to convince a girl that I'm a decent guy. (or I try to be) :D

If I were him I prolly would have skipped looking like an idiot trying to do simple math and gave the waitress like $200. If he's that well off to just drop 160 on a first date, then I don't see an issue with him tipping a little better to save some humiliation. Just my 2c ;P

254, I wasn't meaning to stereotype! I hate stereotypes .. my apologies D: let me say this, based on my experience with the males, it's rare to find a sweetheart who would do that for me :D there we go. no stereotyping :D

257 nah bro I was using the Dollar currency, so on a $160 bill that would be like just over 15 bucks extra after a 15% tip. I guess it wouldn't be a 15% tip then though right? Wow I'm tired.

239- Affect, not effect. Things that affect you have an effect on you. Remember that. My 9th grade sex-ed teacher did when I had him for economics 3 years later.. Didn't like being corrected, I guess.. I love correcting people who ramble about others' stupidity/ignorance/whatever the case.

I didn't say that I was smart, did I? I am all for trolling but come on, you get the gist of what I was saying. :) On the bright side, I don't [email protected] lyk3 diis

300 - No shit, really? Not everybody has a perfect life, FML is there to remind people that even when you think your life sucks, average Joe is getting shat on or failing in some way. FML is also funny.

Sorry, I couldn't hear your rant over the fact that you used the wrong "to" in your first sentence. It should be "too".

this post started off with a difficulty of math argument. its ending in a spelling and grammar argument. only on tfln

Considering I could do this in the fourth grade, I'd say this guy is an idiot, idiots don't deserve equal treatment, they deserve to be in the labor force and sterilized as soon as possible. All they are doing is assisting the horrible evolitionary downward spiral the human race is currently experiencing.

Reply

Sarahstarz - so the fact that he spent a lot makes him a gentleman? Wow, do you sound superficial. A gentleman holds doors open, listens when people talk, and generally respects women. It has nothing to do with money.

Reply

Yeah exactly OP. I mean he's paying for the meal, I think that stands out a little more than him not figuring out the amount of the tip. He could of made you pay instead.

I don't even know what 160$ is in my head. And what If he has some type of learning disability or something.. I'm sure you made him feel so good about hisself.. Not everyone are super math geniuses, everyone has flaws.. especially under pressure..

Reply

correction: he probably was just nervous! maybe you looked so pretty, he just couldn't concentrate op!!:)

Reply

No. I'm with the OP. I'd rather have a $20 meal with a guy who can do 4th grade math than a $160 meal with one who can't. Heck, I'd rather eat off the dollar menu at McDonalds, but you don't tip there so it's irrelevant. Anyone who can't calculate 15% of 100 (given percent=per hundred) is a complete idiot. As a side note...what the hell sort of dinner costs that much, and why would you go there on a first date? That seems more like a...like a "we've been together for years and it's our a

15% of 100 is 15.... it doesn't take a math genious to figure that out. that being said, we all have our moments where we blank out on simple things.

Reply

Not to mention that he must be pretty generous to even leave a tip in the first place, since it isn't something that's usually done in the UK (the reason why the food is more expensive).

Reply

Paying for dinner on the frat date sounds like a gentleman to me. So it does have some things to do with money.

Reply

it's not like I'm saying all girls are like that, it's just that I've noticed that a lot of them are that way now a days.

Reply

I agree!! I feel sorry for the guy. He dropped a lot of money to romance her and all she can do is complain? Ungrateful female! I for one appreciate the good guys! I got very lucky when I met my husband. There is women out there who know how to appreciate the good guys, so don't give up!! We are out there. :)

For a meal as expensive ad £100 for two people, I'm sure they had a few drinks. He was nervous and a little affected by the alcohol. It's not that bad.

Reply

Perhaps... It was just expensive? I've been to a few nice restaurants that cost a fortune, like charging $175 for a plate of spaghetti without sauce or anything. (That was in NY)

There's a difference between "you're" and "your". YOU'RE = You're a dumbass. YOUR = Your ass is dumb. I read that on another FML but it's so true and I hate when people are either too lazy to spell out a whole word, or are too dumb to know the difference. I'm 14 for crying out loud!

Reply

141, your point is relevant but honestly unimportant in the overall scheme of things. I'd hope that most people would be able to comprehend an apostrophe in the middle of a word generally means it's a contraction. People make me sad. ;_;

Alright people get over incorrect grammar and crap like that IT IS NOT a crime to use bad grammar because your lazy or don't know the right grammar you understand the person just the same as someone who does use proper grammar so it is okay to be lazy now can everyone get over it.

Reply

Actually, proper grammar is VERY important. Imagine applying for a job. You send in your resume, and your first sentence. "I has worked 3 jobs as a owner of a resteraunt. I is very. intellegent." That resume is going in the GARBAGE.

Reply

grammar only needs to be legible, if you can't handle it it's your own OCD nightmare. enjoy life :3 ( I have OCD but I don't care for grammar, especially when my sight makes it hard to see words on paper or screen)

Reply

Disagree it is very important to use proper grammar. Stop being lazy it's not like it's hard to know the difference between you're and your as well as their and there that one irritates me so much.
