Man asks if he's wrong to charge girlfriend 'service fee' for handling bills.


'AITA for charging my gf a service fee for handling the bills?'

Me and my gf live together and I generally handle all the bills. We split everything down the middle but I get the mail, make sure they're paid on time, and all that. I just let her know how much the bills are and she pays me half at the end of the month.

Anyways, I started telling her the total was like 3 to 5% higher than it actually is. I figured places charge a service fee for a credit card (really its for the convenience) so it makes sense to do the same for me.

She found out after a year and a bit and is demanding I pay her back for the extra. It's like $50 but over a whole year so it's not like it's a lot. AITA??

Here's what people thought of OP's bill paying system:

YTA - this is a relationship, not a bank. Your GF shouldn’t have to worry about hidden fees. Yeesh

Plus even banks can't hide them THIS well as in never disclose them anywhere at all. Legally a hidden fee is one not readily apparent. This AH OP just straight never said a word before he started stealing

I randomly estimated the amount and he is YTA that can't math. I figured $400 a month x .03 x 12 = $144

This is actually hilarious. Do you TRULY believe you're not doing anything sh**ty charging your GF a service fee?

YTA - If I’m handling a bill and it’s an uneven ¢ amount, I’ll make them pay the extra penny. But a 3-5% fee? That’s ridiculous.

YTA you lied to and stole from her, charging a fee would theoretically be fine if she knew about it but she didn't so she should dump you.

He said it’s a fixed 5% in excel in the comments [comment now deleted], they also live together so it probably includes rent. So make that a lot more as $400.

OP reads the comments and responds:

YTA. Really, dude? Come the f**k on. It’s not a service you provide, it’s a chore that you handle. You must be insufferable

Emotional_Remote417 OP responded:

I'm not that bad

RMaua says:

Dude, you asked for judgement, you got it now you are pushing back? Come on now!

Emotional_Remote417 OP responded:

Ok you are right. I should just let the judgement be
