Track #4 – Who is Paying?
My supervisor invited me and his other students and research staff to have lunch together. Ten of us went to the restaurant straight from the university. I left my bag in my room. The restaurant served a very nice Indian meal. All of us ordered our own food. I chose Indian yellow rice with fish curry. After lunch my supervisor and other friends contributed their money for the meal.
I had left my bag and had never expected to have to pay for the meal. Fortunately I was sitting near my Nepali friend who was a new student too. She lent me some cash to pay for lunch. We laughed because she had just enough cash to pay for both of us. She didn't know that we had to pay for ourselves either.
