Woman reveals the INSANE spreadsheets her boyfriend sent her documenting their shared expenses

A woman revealed that her ex-boyfriend sent her a monthly excel spreadsheet which documented all of their shared expenses and charted every single thing he bought for her down to the last cent – including a $3.23 breakfast that was made up of a banana and single slice of bread.

The woman, named Maddy, 26, from Toronto, Canada, explained on TikTok recently that her former flame – who she dated for three years – would make a document listing all of the things that she owed him money for each month.

The color-coded spreadsheet included things of Maddy’s that he had paid for – like a coke or sandwich – which he expected her to pay back, as well as stuff that was for both of them – like an Uber ride or a dinner – that he wanted her to split.

And while she now calls it a ‘big red flag,’ the 26-year-old told her followers in a now-viral TikTok video that it ‘didn’t bother her much’ at the time.

'It wasn't this big discussion or this shocking email that I woke up to one morning. It was more so him gradually asking me to start splitting more things with him,' she said

Maddy explained on the video streaming platform that the monthly excel doc wasn’t that ‘shocking’ to her at the time because it was something that happened ‘gradually.’ 

Items included in the spreadsheet

  • Morning juices – $9.12
  • Pastries – $9.31
  • Metro – $5.89
  • Burgers – $38.55
  • Uber ride – $15.95
  • Wine for his mom – $28.56
  • Sandwich and coke – $8.57
  • Kabab – $16.98
  • Macaroons – $6.49
  • Beers – $21.23
  • Chicken dinner – $35.89

‘It wasn’t this big discussion or this shocking email that I woke up to one morning. It was more so him gradually asking me to start splitting more things with him,’ she said. 

‘Like, if he would bring over a bottle of wine on date night, he would ask me for $6. I know, that’s weird. 

‘It got to the point where there were so many expenses juggling around both of our heads that he was like, “This is easier if I write it down.” 

‘Since we were both working and both on our computers, he thought it would be best to send it in an email. 

‘That email would gradually turn into a document and then that turned into the infamous excel. This was all over the course of a couple years, so it wasn’t that shocking.’ 

She added that since she comes from a ‘financial background,’ she wasn’t too alarmed over his approach to their expenses as a couple, but added that she ‘definitely’ didn’t find it ‘charming.’ 

Maddy revealed that he would send the excel about once a month, and she even shared one of them with her followers. It listed things like ‘pastries,’ ‘burgers,’ ‘morning juices,’ ‘beers,’ and ‘cab’ rides.

‘As you can see, he was nice enough to color-code it. At the bottom of this, I think it got cut out, would be the total of everything that I owed,’ she explained. 

'It got to the point where there were so many expenses juggling around both of our heads that he was like, "This is easier if I write it down,"' she explained of how it started

Not cool: But now, she said she wouldn't 'stand for that s**t' if it happened again

While Maddy was not upset by the list during their relationship, she did admit to one thing that angered her – when the man, whose name was not revealed, charged her $3.23 for a single banana and a slice of bread that she ate while visiting his mom.

‘I met his family once during [the three years that we dated]. They lived in a different city, so it was hard to see them,’ she explained. 

‘When we traveled to see them, like the good guest that I am, I brought a little gift basket with wine, nice soaps, candles, and whatnot because I was going to be staying at his mom’s house for a couple of days. 

‘The trip was fine, we mostly did our own thing but we did eat with the mom for dinner one night and breakfast one morning. 

‘Me and my boyfriend ended up paying for that dinner because it was a little bit expensive and we wanted to treat his mom. 

‘Whatever, all is good. We get home from the trip and a few days later, I get an email from my boyfriend that had the excel document in it. 

‘But I noticed there was one line in the excel document that I was kind of confused about. The line just said, “Breakfast, $3.23.”

‘So I asked him, like, “Hey, what’s this $3.23 for breakfast?” He looks at me, deadpan, and goes, “Oh, that’s for the banana and piece of toast that you ate at my mom’s.” 

‘Excuse me sir? He was like, “You ate that, so you owe me and my mom money.” This man was deada** trying to charge me for a banana and a piece of wonder bread. And I paid it, I gave him the $3.23.

‘I would not stand for this s**t anymore, but I did for three years,’ she concluded.

Many people took to the comment section of her videos to share their thoughts, and one user called it ‘super weird,’ while another said her ex ‘needed therapy.’

‘Splitting major (bills, groceries, vacations, etc.) expenses while living together is completely reasonable for two working adults. But asking you to pay for a banana and a toast at his mom’s is super weird,’ wrote one viewer.

‘This is CRAZY,’ added another. ‘I would hate to live like this. I can barely remember my expenses each day much less to do this.’

‘It’s like you’re living in a hotel and these are your mini bar charges,’ someone else said, while a fourth person commented, ‘The man needs a hobby and therapy. Damn.’
