      My parents act the same way if I try to take them out to dinner - especially when they come to visit me. Their response is, “You wouldn’t be going out to dinner if we weren’t here, so why should you have to spend the money?” They also know that a $75-$100 dinner is way more of a burden on me than on them. I’ve learned to not fight. I just smile and say “thank you” and have a good bottle of wine waiting at my apartment for us to share after dinner. One year for his birthday, I did kind of get to “pay back” my dad by getting us tickets to see Elton John. I had a little extra cash so I splurged on some decent seats. He actually got upset when he found out how much the tickets cost. He was grateful, but I had to promise not to get him a birthday present for the next two years.
