What would you do in this scenario? You’re out to dinner with friends and order a $17 salad and drink water. Your friends, on the other hand, all treat themselves to $36 in drinks and a $50 steak. The bill comes and your friends suggest you split the bill four ways. Your portion of the check is $70 plus tip totalling a whopping $84. Remember you had a $17 salad.
Would you say something or just pay the bill? A night out can be more about the company you keep and less about the food so it can seem petty to ask for a separate check.
