What Happens In Vegas…

Our friend Kris recently returned from a girls’ bachelorette weekend in Vegas.  She and her friends were celebrating their pal Molly’s upcoming wedding – which of course included paying for air tickets and hotel rooms for the getaway…

Their first night there, Molly was on fire at the blackjack table and won – BIG – $2,000!  She was delighted and told her friends the extra dough would sure come in handy to help pay for all the wedding expenses.

Later that evening, the six friends went out to dinner.  When the bill came, they all split it.  Afterwards, Kris confided to us she felt it was pretty cheap of Molly not to offer to treat them all to dinner – especially since she just won two thousand bucks!  Some of the ladies agreed, while others thought Kris was being petty – it was Molly’s weekend after all.

Should Molly have treated her friends to dinner?  Tell us what you think!

    Molly certainly should have paid. But on the other hand, if this was the first night of a multi night visit, did she actually come out a winner in the end? Maybe the last night should have been her treat?
    this one is a real toss up due to timing and circumstance.

    Molly should have picked up the dinner tab. It didn’t have to be a pricey dinner, but 6 people at $50 each would have been $300.00.

    It’s one of those things where you can’t say anything, but it’s really ungracious to win $2000. in gambling, when your friends have paid airfare and hotel, and then will have to buy you a wedding gift, etc, and then not treat them to dinner with such a windfall.

    Molly shouldn’t be surprised if her wedding gifts from these friends are smaller than she anticipated.

    I think Molly was perfectly correct in keeping the money for her wedding expenses. If any of the ladies were married, they would understand how expensive even a small wedding is. If she had lost $2000 would the girls have chipped in to cover that? Everyone there went and paid with the expectation of just celebrating with Molly. They should have been happy for her, but I think they were a little envious.

Any Thoughts?
