Is It OK to Use a Coupon on a First Date? [POLL]
Recently, my wife and I started using some of syndicated radio host Dave Ramsey's tips for getting rid of debt and increasing wealth.
I stumbled across this story on his website and wondered what the KATS audience would have to say about it.
This is the story of Brad’s first date with Jenny. Brad’s a nice guy. He lives in a nice apartment on a nice street. Brad even drives a nice car.
One day, Brad asks Jenny on a date and she says yes.
On the evening of the date, both Brad and Jenny are happy. "What a nice date," they both think.
Brad and Jenny go to a nice dinner and eat nice food. They laugh. They drink. They eat.
After their nice dinner, Brad reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a folded-up sheet of paper.
“I have a coupon here for a free dessert with the purchase of two entrées of $12 or more.”
“Of course,” the server responds. “I’ll bring the dessert menu.”
Brad sits back down. He smiles at Jenny. “I’ve been dying to use that coupon! It expires on Tuesday!”
Jenny smiles. She says … WHAT?
That’s where you come in!
The question is simply: Is it okay to use a coupon on a first date?
