In a recent social media fuss, Aryan Strauss, a single mom, found herself in an awkward situation after being asked to pay $150 for a group dinner, despite only spending $25.

Strauss shared her story on TikTok, talking about a situation at a friend’s birthday dinner in a fancy steakhouse.

Even though money was tight, Strauss wanted to treat her friend and snagged a coupon for a buy-one-get-one-free deal at the expensive restaurant.

Both she and her friend ordered $50 main dishes, but things got complicated when Strauss complained about her meal, leading the waiter to remove it from the bill.

Thinking her part of the bill would be $25, Strauss was surprised when the final bill expected her to cover the costs of those who left without paying, making her share $150.

Refusing to pay the full amount, she offered $50, despite having only $48 in her account and $10 in cash for a tip. To settle the debt, she wrote a check to her friend, who wasn’t happy about it.

Afterward, Strauss urged viewers to talk about bill plans before going out, stressing how important it is to know everyone’s budget to avoid money surprises.

The incident sparked a lively debate on TikTok, with some suggesting separate bills for fairness. Others argued that people shouldn’t join group dinners if they can’t afford.

In a later video, Strauss admitted her mistake and highlighted the need for responsible money handling.
