Most of us would lend money to a friend if they were in trouble, wouldn’t we?
A woman took to TikTok to reveal that her best friend had been lying to her for years about her financial situation.
Not only did her friend lie about how much cash she had, but she was actually loaded in secret.
Meghan, who posted under the username ‘littlebundhasmatter”, explaining that she struggled with money while in college and thinks her best friend is in the same situation.
“When I was in college, I was broke,” she explains.
“I’m about 17 or 18 so student finance hasn’t worked out, I don’t have some of those sweet sweet loans.
“Me and my bank account often look at each other like, ‘Are we going to breathe at lunch today? Shall we have air? Because there is no money. ‘
“So I was messed up, and so was my friend, right?
“Sometimes I usually buy her food because she really has no money.
“She’s poorer than I am.”
After their exams were over for the year, Meghan’s friend suggested they go to a restaurant to celebrate.
It all sounds good to Meghan and she assumes they’re going somewhere cheap, financially for both, but the reality is very different.
She continued: “She suggested we go out for a meal because we were finishing our freshman year of college and I said ‘Okay, let’s celebrate’.
“I’ve been saving all week and I have £10.
“Ten pounds is enough for a chicken meal, okay?
“So I’m thinking, ‘I have a lot of money,’ I’m feeling rich, but I walk into the restaurant my friend booked and my heart drops.
“I listen to classical music, I see people in suits and dresses, I sit down and I see free lemonade.
“I ran to the bathroom and called my sister and I said, ‘Put some money in my account, this is the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me.’ I feel so lost. .”
And while Meghan made sure to keep her spending to a minimum, she noticed her friend was ordering multiple items from the menu – leaving Meghan wondering how she would pay for it all.
But while Meghan was panicking about her finances, her friend agreed to pay for the entire meal as she revealed she’s actually been well off all this time.

She explained: “I ordered one meal. My friend ordered many dishes.
“I was thinking, ‘She’s messed up, shall we have dinner and drive off?’.
“She literally ordered a lot.
“The waiter came over and he said, ‘Are you going to split the bill or pay together?’ and my friend said we would pay together.
“I thought she was expecting me to pay, but she pulled out her card and paid for her meal and mine.
“I later learned that her family owns a restaurant, she lives in a mansion.
“She just pretended to be poor. Who does that? Why does she make me pay for her meal? “
Meghan’s video has racked up a whopping 4.8 million views.
It has 1.4 million likes, 9,193 comments and 11.1 thousand shares.
Many Tiktok users were shocked by Meghan’s friend and the secret she kept.
One said: “Does she really make you pay for her meals when she knows you’re poor?!”
Another added: “I would legally cry and get hurt that all my friends might be lying.”
As for other real life stories, I spent 40 minutes getting ready to meet my friends on my date – but he didn’t like my outfit so he sent me an Uber HOME.
