Today is a co worker’s birthday and when I got to work this morning I saw an email saying that we were going to lunch for this event.

The email was sent after I left work yesterday so I had no idea. Now I don’t have any money to be spending on a last minute lunch that I had no clue about.

I am trying to find out who is paying for this because if I have to dip into my pocket then I will just stay in the office.

If I knew in advance then I could have budgeted for it..but I did not. I hate when these things happen.

And I do not want someone to pay for me and then I pay them back later. Going out to eat today is just not in my budget at all.
