A young woman was “confused” when her boyfriend of three years sent her an Excel spreadsheet asking her to pay $3.23 for the banana and toast he ate while visiting his mother.
In a TikTok series titled “men are weird with money,” Maddy Blythe from Canada detailed the weird situation with her ex-boyfriend in a video.
The 26-year-old and her now-ex-boyfriend only visited her family once because they lived in different states, and after the trip, she sent her a list of all the expenses.

In a TikTok series titled “men are weird with money,” Maddy Blythe, from Canada, (pictured) said her ex-boyfriend emailed her a $3.23 bill for banana and the toast he ate at his mother’s house
Recalling the trip, Maddy said it was “fine” because they “mostly did their own thing,” but they had dinner with her mother one night and breakfast the next morning.
“My boyfriend and I ended up paying for dinner because it was a bit expensive and we wanted to treat his mother,” she said.
A few days later, after arriving home, she received an email from her boyfriend with an Excel document attached.
Maddy said they “normally” split expenses using the Excel spreadsheet, but this time she noticed the odd inclusion.
‘I noticed there was a line in his Excel document that I was a little confused about. The line just said “breakfast” for $3.23,” he continued.
‘So I asked him, “Hey, how much is this $3.23 for breakfast?” and he looks at me, deadpan and says, “Oh well, that’s for the banana and the piece of toast you had at my mom’s.”
‘Excuse me, sir?’ She replied.
‘He says, ‘Yeah, you ate it, so you owe me and my mom money.
‘This man was dead and tried to charge me for a banana and piece of wonder bread.
“I asked him how he calculated it and he said, ‘It felt right.’
Even though she thought the request was strange, Maddy still paid him the small amount of money.
“I paid for it, all right. I gave him the $3.23!’ she said.
Looking back on the request, Maddy said she “couldn’t stand this shit” now.
In another video Maddy also revealed the spreadsheet format used by her ex-boyfriend. “I dug into my emails and found out what a typical monthly Excel spreadsheet would look like,” she said. (Pictured: The Monthly Spreadsheet)
In another video Maddy also revealed the spreadsheet format used by her ex-boyfriend.
“I dug into my emails and found out what a typical monthly Excel spreadsheet would look like,” she said.
The spreadsheet was color-coded and even included the amount Maddy “owed” each month.
Maddy also revealed the “very corporate sounding emails” they allegedly exchanged.
“He said, ‘Let me know if there are any adjustments, you see the notes next to the expenses, the ones highlighted in yellow are the common ones,” Maddy added.
The initial video has since been viewed more than 766,000 times, with many labeling the behavior “toxic.”
“The fact that you were okay with getting a spreadsheet invoice from your boyfriend?” one person commented.
“How did you not break up with him instantly?” asked another.
“I would never be able to sleep with that man again,” said a third.
“I’m too stunned to speak. My mind is blown, girl I can’t imagine, you were a guest in her house,” added another.
