The boys want to buy u food (Rajigaze 3/31)
Uruha (reading mail): “I really don’t like being treated. It may because my father once said to me, ‘who do you think is paying your bills!?’ but I just feel this pressure like if someone is paying for me, I have to do what they tell me. Of course I know it’s not really like that, I’m sure not everyone who gives you money is expecting you to do as they say. But I still feel pressure, and I avoid being treated. If I go out to eat with that weight on me, I can’t even enjoy the food, and it’s really just a waste in so many ways. But I heard that not accepting someone’s offer to treat you could be taken as you trying to distance yourself from them, so I thought maybe it was bad that I was doing that, so, this was many years ago but, I decided to try to let my boyfriend at the time treat me. But sure enough he ended up thinking he could tell me what to do. Maybe he had always been that kind of person and I just didn’t notice, but since becoming a full-time worker, I thought it would be bad as a subordinate not to let my superior treat me, so I let them, but it was obvious that –” huh?
(people are starting to get giggly at this point cause it’s getting so long)
Uruha: “It was obvious that he had other motives. But I w–
(now Uruha is giggling too)
Uruha: “I wonder if as a subordinate and a woman it’s better to just genuinely say ‘thank you!’, and I’m sure the person treating me would feel good about it too–
Kai: (giggling) don’t fall asleep!
(everyone starts giggling again)
Uruha: “But it just puts too much pressure on me and I really don’t like it, so I don’t want to accept it. Food that I buy with my own money is less stressful, and it tastes better…Is this my Dark Side?”
(everyone especially Kai lOsEs iT)
Kai: AMAZING SHE LET IT GO ON FOR SO LONG
Reita: I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND NINETY-NINE PERCENT OF THAT
Uruha: Man that was hard even tho I was the one reading it I didn’t get it…
Reita: Okay so it’s like because of some trauma she has from her dad she thinks being treated equals you have to do what they say so she doesn’t wanna be treated–
(Everyone dies laughing)
Reita: Okay but where she lost me is like, when she says she can’t enjoy the food, but do you already know if you’re getting treated or not before the end of the meal? …..What y'all think
(Kai and Uruha laugh)
Uruha: What, like, “you pay today”?
Reita: Well like, don’t you usually find out after eating who’s gonna pay?
Aoi: Well, yeah, you’re right
Reita: So wouldn’t she not know she was gonna get treated?
Kai: Yeah, but I think she already has that feeling
Reita: She’s in treat mode!!!!
Kai: Treat mode!!!
Aoi: Well, it’s kinda rude [of Reita] to say it like that.
Reita: Yeah I kinda…thought that too
(Kai dying in background)
Reita: I thought, that’s rude!
Aoi: I mean, she must have been treated a few times before, right?
Aoi: Let’s just leave it at that.
Reita: I’m sorry!
Aoi: The radio is something we make together, you know.
Reita: I’m sorry!
(there’s a pause and then Ruki says something but I can’t catch but everyone starts laughing, it’s something like u done fucked up on the last show)
Uruha: So, does this person have a Dark Side?
Aoi: I think she was just surrounded by bad people. The people around her were just that kinda person [who thinks they can tell u what to do bc they pay for u]…like, I don’t feel that, I feel like that’s arrogant
Reita: Right!? Like, I don’t even need u to thank me!!!
Ruki: Ah-! I just remembered something kinda similar…u know like…when you go out to eat with a kohai…you pay right?
Ruki: But they try to pay too, you know? So I was like, show me ur wallet fam…and I looked and there was nothing in it… (why is this man so savage)
Kai: Oh, he just wanted to make the gesture kinda thing?
Uruha: That’s cute though!! …But is it really important that kohais offer to pay anyway..? Should they…? I mean, if a senpai is there…
Aoi: Well, I don’t need them to, but…
Ruki: Idk, in some cases is might come off as rude? [if they don’t offer]
Uruha: Ahh ur right…
Reita: But also I hate going back and forth a bunch of times.
Ruki: Ahh yeh
Reita: Like if I offer to pay just lemme pay
Uruha: Just be like “thx” right?
Aoi: I think it depends on the first time you go out. If the senpai was like, “let’s split the bill,” I’ll keep paying [next time]
Reita: I see
Uruha: Yeh for sure
Reita: Man it’s hard eh
Uruha: But isn’t it cuter if the kohai’s just like, “thank u!!!!” [just accepts]
Reita: Aww ya, when they depend on u like, “pls cud I have some more food???”
Aoi: Yes well we want them to eat lots until they’re full~!
(I translated what Rei said as depend on but another meaning of the word he used is when u act like a spoiled baby lmao so I guess he thinks that’s cute)
(LADIES if papa aoi n rei take u out to eat ask them to order lots of food for u and then let them pay)
