Sometimes your investment doesn’t pay off, but that doesn’t mean you always get your money back.

After buying an attractive lady a drink, most men will ask the woman for her number and make contact later to ask her out on a date.

That’s what 18-year-old British student Abby Fenton expected, not a message two weeks later asking for a refund for the cost of the drink, the Mirror reports.

“I was at the bar about to get myself a drink myself when he came over to me and said: ‘I’ll get that for you, you’re gorgeous’ and all that,” recalls the young woman, who studies biomedicine at Leeds Becket University.  In England, the legal drinking age is 18.

“I just said I wanted something with vodka in and then we must have swapped numbers before I walked off,” she adds.


Two weeks passed before she would hear from the man, “Liam.”

“Hi hope u don’t mind love but can you transfer me back [$8.70]” reads the message Fenton posted on Twitter later.

“I bought yer a drink?” he added. “Can I have money back for it. Will give u sort code and account no. Thank.”
