So a section of my department has a Halloween happy hour next week, which I somehow got roped into helping plan. I agreed to take care of buying beer and wine with the assumption that I would be reimbursed...but as it turns out, we are expected to somehow eat the cost of these things without being reimbursed. So I asked my coworkers to kick in like $5 each for the cost.

Am I an asshole for asking? Because I feel like a miserly asshole for asking, even though I don't just have $100 lying around to drop on drinks for everyone.

How do I adult?!
