We may have heard that most newlyweds enjoy the time on their honeymoon together, or love to enjoy the time with each other after the wedding ceremony, or even just watching cute photos of their wedding, but here, a couple scanned the CCTV footage from their big day. It may seem okay to some people, but the actual reason behind the scanning of the CCTV may feel weird. The newlywed couple actually watched the CCTV footage just to catch guests who took extra slices of their wedding cake! Yes, you read that right. The couple took time from enjoying the time together and watched the CCTV footage just to keep track of the people who had taken extra pieces of cake. In addition to this, they also asked the guests who ate an additional piece of the cake to pay £3.66 (Rs 366), they wanted the guest to charge for having another piece as fast as the guest could.
This story went viral when a Redditor made a post on Reddit, by sharing a screenshot of the WhatsApp conversation they had. As per the screenshots, the couple at first sent the guest a video, by looking at which, the guest got confused and replied, “Duno what you mean.” To which, a message was received from the other side that, “Hey, so we were looking at the CCTV and saw that you had two pieces of the wedding cake. We announced that each guest must pay per slice and noticed that you only paid for the one. Can you please send the £3.66 asap?”
This really surprised many netizens out there, as no one would expect to get charged for just having an extra piece of cake. Netizens were also amazed as they pointed out that the couple not only charged guests for the wedding cake but also reviewed the CCTV footage of their wedding just to check again and charge guests who are something extra at the wedding.
One Reddit user commented jokingly, “Tell them to take you to small claims court.” Another Redditor wrote, “Love to spend my first precious days as a newlywed reviewing CCTV to see which of my loved ones I can shake down for £3.66” A third Reddit user noted, “Paying per slice is tacky, but sending actual video feed is a whole other level of crazy!”
Another one commented, “I’d reply with “consider my gift as payment and in that case you owe me the difference… so please send your payment of (whatever amount) immediately”.” Yet another added, “It’s incredibly cheeky to ask guests to pay for the cake, let alone review footage and then bill guests after the fact for £3.66! How are they not embarrassed?” One user commented jokingly, “Mail them a box of the cheapest cake mix you can find.”.
One user commented the whole paragraph of what the guest should have said to the newlyweds, as the user wrote, “I paid X for your gift, X for gas to get there and back, X for clothing to wear to your wedding, and passed up an opportunity to work an extra shift in order to attend. Subtracting the cost of the slice of cake, you owe me XXX. Please remit immediately to avoid late fees.”
Many people are still wondering how they were able to ask for money without any embarrassment. Well the comment section is definitely worth a look as the comments are too hilarious as people are busy suggesting different ways to answer!
