Dining and dashing is never OK but doing it and sticking a date with the bill? Really? That's a whole other level.

Multiply that by 20 and now you're looking at jail time.

Paul Guadalupe Gonzales went on dates with over 20 women who have come forward and accused him of skipping out on dinner, sticking them with the check. In Los Angeles, Gonzales became known as the Serial 'Dine-And-Dash Dater,' a reputation that didn't exactly help him when prosecutors began pressing charges.

Gonzales had an invariable M.O. He would meet women on dating apps, charm them, ask them to dinner at expensive restaurants, eat his food as quickly as possible (sometimes before they'd even arrive), then make an excuse to leave the table and never come back.

Now he's facing felony counts.

Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey's office issued a press release saying:

The defendant now faces a total of 11 felony counts of extortion, two felony counts of attempted extortion, two misdemeanor counts of defrauding an innkeeper by non-payment and one misdemeanor count of petty theft.

If convicted on all counts, Gonzales could see up to 16 years and 10 months in prison.

Inside Edition managed to track down Gonzales and confronted him in a Starbucks earlier this month.

True to form, Gonzales ran away, refusing to answer questions.

Some on Twitter were amused by the whole thing.



But since this is 2018, some just had to make it political.



PLOT TWIST: it turns out his dashing was not limited to just restaurants.

Others were just happy to see justice being served!



Gonzales's bail is set at $315,000, and, sadly, there was a large man named "The Baliff" who won't let him run out on the bill.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
