Guy buys student a drink. 2 weeks later, he asks for a refund.
A student who was bought a drink by a guy in a nightclub was left mildly surprised when two weeks later he texted her to ask for the money back.
A man known only as "Liam" offered to buy student Abby Fenton a vodka and coke when she was out with her friends at the Viper Rooms in Sheffield.
Unbeknownst to Abby, this was actually a loan, and in a couple of weeks time he'd text her his sort code and account number so that she could repay the debt.

"Hope you don't mind love, but can you transfer me back £6.50?"
Abby, who will begin studying Bio-Medicine at Leeds Beckett later this month, was on her way to buy a drink when he approached and said:
"I'll get that for you, you're gorgeous and all that."
She told him:
"I wanted something with vodka in."
He bought the drink, and then:
"We must have swapped numbers before I walked off."
"At first I didn't realise he got my number as he didn't text me that night or the next day." She told The Mail. She promptly forgot about him and moved on with her life.
But then he texted her, reminding her who he was and asking for his drink money back.

The text message he sent, which Abby shared on twitter, got straight to the point:
"Hi, hope you don't mind love but can you transfer back £6.50".
Sensibly, Abby asked "who's this" and a few hahahas for good message. He explained:
"Liam from the viper rooms a few weeks ago. I bought yer a drink? Can I have money back for it. Will give u sort code and account no. Thank"
After sending a few shocked emojis and some laughing faces, she immediately agreed to pay him back for the drink, which she was going to buy herself anyway before Liam had offered.
"I paid him back straight away even though I wasn't going to at first as I thought it was so cheeky, but then I thought he might have needed it."
"I'm just baffled that this time the guy wasn't drunk and he texted two weeks later for it, it's very funny."
"He wasn't my type really but I just thought that when you're out, people buy you drinks!"
But apparently not. So next time you're offered a drink, make sure you check whether it's a loaner.
