A viral tweet was posted that shared a story about how one person rebuked her date after he pulled a 2-for-1 voucher when getting into a zoo, and she had to pay for her ticket. The tweet read:

“I just remembered the time I went on a first date to London Zoo, and at the gate, he asked if I would mind paying for my own ticket, which I said I would, at which point he pulled out a 2-for-2 voucher, so I paid for my ticket, and he went in for free.” 

The tweet got some very great reactions! Here are some of the best responses from this conversation.

He Likes Zoos More Than He Does Her

One user put it blankly that the date was more interested in the zoo than in her, “He doesn’t like you. He just likes zoo.”

Another person had a similar experience, “Had a girl at work do this to me once. Asked if I wanted to get subs for dinner. I gave her cash to pick one up for me, and it turns out it was only so she could get like a tenth sub-free type of thing. Would have been happy to pay for my own either way. Just tricky.”

The Man Is a Genius

Another user wondered why she would want to dump him for pulling a genius move, “So… do you dump him for his manipulation or marry him for his genius?”

Another user added that some people are too libertarians they cannot help it, “I went on a date with a libertarian, and when the check came to the sushi bar on his side I pulled out my card and passed it to him, and he threw it on the check for the waitress without adding his own.”

It Was a Weird, Fun Thing To Do

Another user says if this was reversed, they would be intrigued, “If a woman did this to me, I’d be immediately intrigued – not in love, but d***it if she wouldn’t seem like a fun, weird person to hang with.”

The Vibe Matters

According to another user, the vibe is all that matters, “It totally depends on the vibe with which it was done if it’s pulled out with a sweet! Now I can finally use this 2-for-1 voucher and then chuckle; that’s one thing, especially if they pick up some concessions and/or something the other person was admiring at the gift shop. Then it’s not a matter of taking advantage of someone; it’s just kind of a funny gag.”

Split the Cost of the Ticket

Another user said that splitting the cost would have been the best strategy for the couple, “The nice thing to do would be to offer to split the cost of the one ticket, at least. Or say you buy your ticket, and I’ll buy your food and beverage inside.”

He Knows How To Save Money

According to one user, although he knows how to save money, he should have offered to pay since he brought the coupons, “I would respect the fact that he knows how to save money. But I’m disappointed he didn’t try to impress her by being the one to pay since he brought the coupon. If I were the girl that went with him, this wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.”

He Should Have Used the Voucher on Her as Well

“The right way to do that is if he paid for his ticket, asked that question, then, after her response, pulled out the voucher showing her ticket would be free. Just a quick, flirty joke. That’s the right way to do it, or at least what I would have done anyway,” advised another user.

A user noted that people reason differently when such an action is done by rich people, “If Warren Buffet did this, it makes him a great investor, and if a normal guy does it, it’s cheap behavior.”

Some Are Impressed by Such a Move

A user who went on a date says she was impressed that her date did not spend any money on her, “One time, I went on a first date, and he took me to a restaurant where he had a gift certificate. He followed it up with a movie, where he had two free movie tickets and then a voucher for concessions. He didn’t spend a dime, and it was honestly impressive.”
