Using social media to air out our grievances may seem like a good idea in theory. But it can backfire in an instant. That's what happened when a woman took to Facebook to mock a man for the crime of wanting to take her out to dinner at Applebee's.
"This man asked me out on a date. He was actually fine as hell but when I asked him where we were going he said and I quote ladies 'Applebee's,'" the woman wrote on Facebook. She then said she "busted out laughing" at his "silly cheap ass."
In response to his suggestion, she told him: "I own my own shop, a house, a BMW and stocks. I can buy Applebee's!" Then she apparently "walked away," much to his apparent dismay. The woman encouraged other women to "keep them standards high as hell" and not to "settle for a broke man." Maybe she'd hoped for a chorus of likes and support from her fellow women. That's not what she got.
