Kenyan men reveal the worst experiences they've had paying unexpected bills for women

Who should foot the bill when going out for drinks?

Under the hashtag MasculinityKE, the men opened up on how women have 'bullied' them into footing bills when they had not planned on doing so.

And it all began when Twitter user shared a past experience where he and a couple of women tried to shame him into paying for their drinks.

"A friend's friend (a babe) invites me for a drink a few weeks back and later tells me she'll be bringing friends," Mariga narrated.

The women, Mariga said, ordered for their drinks separately without informing him. It was not until the waiter muttered to him asking if he was to pay for the pricey drinks.

"I laughed and told them to get the drinks themselves since I was only drinking beer...you should see how annoyed they were," he said.

"I danced, finished my two beers and went home before anything else happened."
