Date Goes Terribly After the Check Arrives


Kishore Nimmala, 32, took the phone when Fakhara Sultana told him she had no cash during their first date at the Ruby Blue bar in Leicester Square, jurors heard. Mr Nimmala, who had met Ms Sultana on an online dating site, spent £54 on two rounds of drinks and insisted she should contribute, Southwark Crown Court heard.

But Ms Sultana had assumed it was the gentleman’s prerogative to pay for everything on the first date and after Mr Nimmala became angry Ms Sultana cut the evening short. However, he pestered her for money as she walked to Charing Cross Tube station then seized her white Blackberry phone, it was said.

You probably shouldn’t assume that your date will pay for everything. You certainly shouldn’t steal your date’s phone because you ended up having to pay for the date. Sometimes (a lot of times) a date doesn’t work out the way you expect it to, and you just have to cut your losses.

Christ, London’s awful. £54 for 4 drinks? What the fuck were they made of?

*ugh* Women who think it is a “gentleman’s perogative” to buy them stuff. Also, *ugh*, men who think that they can buy a woman’s company or affection, or are “owed” these things because they spent money. And finally, *ugh*, people who can’t clearly communicate their expectations and needs in social situations and then behave like idiots.

Quite honestly, here’s hoping they both stay single or grow the F up.

Well, the first clue that these people are horrible is that their date was at a bar in Leicester Square.
