Ask Amy: Nuptials in Belize won’t be a breeze

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I have been dating “Brian” for over a year.

My niece came to visit me for a few days. She and I decided to go out to a sports bar and play games and eat.

I invited Brian to meet up and join us, and he did.

When the check came, I picked it up and took my card out. Brian offered me $20 to help cover it.

I took his $20 and thanked him.

He texted me later, saying that was inconsiderate of me to take it.


He said that if he invited me to join him and his niece, then he would have paid the entire bill.

I don’t get what I was supposed to do?

I have paid the entire check for us several times.

Brian actually wants the $20 back!
