No; most of the time it is the other person who is with me. I'll ask 'are you sure?' because I am willing to pay, but they'll insist say 'yes', and I won't ask again. They had their chance; if they want to pay, that's their choice. If I am the one expected to pay, then I won't argue bout it, because I probably should be the one paying.
I don't think I have actually argued about it but I have had a few times where I have insisted that I pay and the other person has argued that I won't pay -one friend in particular it gets a bit embarrassing as she will never let me pay and I have almost argued however would not at a public place.
Only yesterday with a girlfriend....coffee and cake. She wanted to pay but I insisted we go dutch as though a lovely gesture we meet quite often and I like things to be clearcut, don't like the carry on every time....
No! Arguing is so rude!! Usually I am able to simply pay if I wish to,as I would have made it clear,prior to the event, to whoever I am with that this is what I wish to do. However if someone has offered to take me out for a meal or morning tea,I can always accept this very graciously,as I know it is what THEY wish to do!
My neighbour and I usually take it in turns to pay for a pizza on a Tuesday if we decide to have one.This way,we both feel that we are doing something for each other. Wjhen I was younger,I was probably more adamant about wanting to pay for everything,but I had more money to spare back then!
Sometimes I do. My best friend always offers to pay for coffee and cake when we go out, and sometimes I will argue about it, but she won't take no for an answer. Also, if I am buying my husband a gift I want to pay for it. He shouldn't have to pay for his own present.
