A woman has shared her horror online after being mailed an invoice for her half of a dinner date after she 'ghosted' the man because she felt they weren't compatible.
Amanda Burnett, from Indiana, shared a photo of the invoice she received from the unnamed man on Twitter and Instagram, revealing an itemized list of everything she ate and drank during the meal, and the corresponding prices.
But while the 23-year-old seemed furious about receiving the bill, social media was split over who was actually in the wrong - with some insisting that she should indeed be forced to pay for her share if she didn't feel that the relationship was worth pursuing.
Invoice: An Indiana woman has revealed she was sent an invoice for her half of a dinner date, after she stopped texting the man back
Date gone wrong: Amanda Burnett shared a photo of the invoice sent from the unnamed man, which included a detailed list of everything she ate and drank during the evening
Follow up: After sending the invoice, her date also sent a text saying if he wasn't paid back, she would be forced to pay a penalty, or even be referred to a collection agency
Amanda from Indianapolis shared the photo of the invoice which has since been deleted, with the caption: 'A guy just mailed me a bill for our dinner a few weeks ago because I didn't text him back…I can't make this s**t up.'
The two ate at The Tap brewery where he charged her $10 for one Moscow Mule, $10 for one beer and $14.50 for an order of Smoked Hickory Barbeque Pulled Pork Tacos.

Aside from what she ate and drank at the restaurant, he also charged her on the invoice titled, '69,' for a $1.99 processing fee, a seven per cent sales tax of $2.56 and $0.47 for shipping and handling.
Besides charging her for postage he even said if the invoice is not paid he will send an agency to come collect.
Her total bill came out to $39.52 and after posting the photo, her tweet caused a ruckus on Twitter over whether or not the invoice was the right thing to do.
After being taken on a date where she was treated to a full dinner, Amanda realized afterwards that she didn't want the relationship to go any further so she decided to ghost him and stopped answering his texts.
Once she received the invoice, her date followed up by texting her saying: 'And to avoid additional penalty or fines have the invoice paid otherwise it will be turned into a collection agency.'
She responded to his text writing simply, 'Hahahaha f**k off.'
The invoice caused an ongoing argument on social media with some people thinking the man had every right to send it after what she did and others feeling like the invoice was completely unnecessary.
Blame: Most people commented that they don't think her date was wrong for sending her an invoice like this user who doesn't think he's to blame
Free meal: One user went so far to say that Amanda has no morals and was only in it for the free meal
Mediator: Someone else saw both sides of the story and commented that they were both in the wrong
Defense: One user defended Amanda and said she should send him an invoice for being a bad date
'Amanda he's obviously not looking to actually be paid, but you not having the decency to text "thanks but it's not going to work out" is just dumb,' one user commented.
One angry man tweeted: 'Fellas if the date wasn't right send the invoice and if she don't pay it let that b***h go to collections.'
'Can't say I don't blame him,' another person wrote while someone else went so far to say: 'Wow this woman has no morals and can't afford to pay for her own meal. #LookingForFreeMeal.'
In one comment, a man was so impressed by the guy sending an invoice he gushed: 'I am so proud of this guy he should send me a father's day card.
'The pettiness of even billing her for the postage stamp could only be surpassed by sending this to collections when she predictably doesn't pay it.'
Another critic of Amanda commented, 'If you don't have the decency to text the guy back he's in every right to make you pay for the meal. Only fair!'
Hilarious: Other users thought the invoice was absolutely hilarious, especially the $1.99 processing fee
Funny: Another user thought the bill was such a funny idea and loved that he titled the invoice '69'
Proud father: This guy said he's so proud of the man for sending her a bill for everything she ate and drank
Annoyed: Amanda has since deleted the tweet and made her account private but argued: 'As a woman you're not obligated to give a man anything in exchange for a cheap dinner'
'So many girls just expect the guy to pay for everything,' a very annoyed user commented.
Despite all of the comments from people taking the man's defense, one mediator wrote: 'It depends on how the date went.
'He could have been a complete jerk for all we know, then again so could she. You don't really know until you hear both sides.
'That is the change you take in dating, so in a way they're both wrong.'
There were not many supporters of Amanda, however one person did write: 'Send him an invoice for the time you wasted on the date.'
Not only did Amanda delete the original tweet after all of the backlash, she also ended up making her Twitter account private.
Before she stepped away from the situation she had one thing to say to all of the haters: 'Cracks me up how people instantly are like, "Well why didn't YOU text him back? You just wanted a free meal?"'
She then continued arguing: 'YOU AS A WOMAN ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO GIVE A MAN ANYTHING IN EXCHANGE FOR A CHEAP DINNER.'
