Personally, I'm more than ready to be "used"
The woman is this ad finds the fact that her new boyfriend keeps taking her out to dinner- and picking up the tab-rather odd. Yeah, that IS very strange behavior. Taking a date out to dinner? Weird- maybe he's a serial killer or something.
No, turns out that he's much, much worse- thanks to her- um, "friend," she realizes* that her horrible user boyfriend is just "racking up thank you points" by using his CitiBank Visa card. What a scumbag, using her innocently healthy appetite and equally innocent "guys pay" philosophy in order to get rewards from his credit card. She ought to do a little more thinking now- those flowers he sent? I bet he used his card to buy THAT, too! What a jerk!
I really hope she tells him off- maybe something like "ok, buster, I'm on to you- from now on, we are going DUTCH TREAT-- no, forget that, I'M PAYING FOR BOTH OF US!" That'll teach him! And if it doesn't- can this woman please give me a call? Because unlike her insane friend, I don't look for nefarious motives behind my date's willingness to pick up the check....;>)
*Or maybe he's just being a kind of old-fashioned gentleman. Naw, couldn't be.
