It's a story as old as time. Boy meets girl. Boy buys girls a drink. Girl gives boy phone number. Boy texts girl two weeks later to ask for a refund.
Wait – what?
That's the story behind this week's viral news story, offering an insight into what is - we hope - an unusual example of romance in the digital age.
When a man named Liam asked 18-year-old Abby if she'd like a drink in a Sheffield Bar, she accepted and the pair exchanged numbers.
When things (presumably) didn't quite work out as he hoped, Abby got a text from Liam a fortnight later asked her to refund the £6.50 he had spent on her vodka and Coke.
But before we rush to condemn the mystery man for what at first sight looks like a staggering act of tight-waddery, Abby made the following point after posting the exchange on Twitter and - predictably - being retweeted more than 10,000 times:
"I paid him back straight away even though I wasn't going to at first as I thought it was so cheeky, but then I thought he might have needed it," the biomedicine student said.
"I remember that he wasn't dressed so well. I always look at people's shoes and I remember they were Primark shoes, so he might have needed it."
Two lessons here, fellas. If you're going to buy someone a drink make sure you can afford it, and never, ever wear crap shoes. Women notice these things.
