Her Sister-In-Law Always Tried to Avoid Paying the Restaurant Bill, So She Found a Clever Way to Finally Make Her Pay

A woman recently shared how her cheapskate sister-in-law constantly tricked her into paying the bill whenever they went out to eat. She finally had enough and came up with a genius plan to stop the behavior.

The woman, who is 28 years old, has a 26-year-old sister-in-law named Amy. Even though Amy lives in a different city, she frequently visits. During her visits, Amy prefers to stay at the woman’s house instead of opting for a hotel.

In addition, Amy has a tendency to dine at expensive restaurants. Interestingly, she conveniently “forgets” to bring her wallet or comes up with excuses to avoid paying her portion of the bill. The woman has become accustomed to this behavior and has never confronted Amy about it.

“She has implied that since I make more money than her, I should be the one to pay the bills. Not my husband, me in particular,” she said.

The woman did make a fair amount of money but not enough to pay for someone’s meal every time they visited. Nonetheless, the woman had been paying the bills, hoping that Amy would refund her money, but this never happened.

Amy made a reservation at an extremely expensive restaurant, and the woman told her that she wouldn’t foot her bill. This “warning” obviously fell on deaf ears. 

Amy thought it would be business as usual, but she had no idea what the woman had planned.

Just as they were leaving for the restaurant, the woman pretended that she had forgotten something in the house and told her husband and Amy that she needed to get it. Her intention was to search for Amy’s wallet and take it with her.

“I’ll admit I got this move straight from an episode of Two and a Half Men,” she said.

She Found the Wallet

She found Amy’s wallet sitting pretty in her suitcase. She picked it up, put it in her purse, and went to join her husband and Amy in the car. 

When they finished their delicious meal at the restaurant, the woman asked for separate bills. As expected, Amy said, “no, we need one bill because I forgot my wallet.”

She reached for Amy’s wallet in her purse and said to her, “this wallet?”

Amy was gobsmacked and extremely furious! 

She said that the woman shouldn’t have touched or grabbed her wallet.

At last, Amy finally paid her own bill! 

She was happy with her little ‘petty revenge’ but wonders if she went too far. So she reached out to the Reddit community for their opinions. 

People Responded

One user said, “Way to go, but you should have flipped the switch-left your wallet at home and only taken some identification. This way, Amy would have paid the whole bill.”

Another user said, “Stop going out with her. Why is your husband letting her take advantage of you? I think this is your real problem.”
