Have you ever argued over who should pay for something? What was it, and who ended up paying the bill? Have you ever gotten "stuck" with the check at dinner?
In a group of friends, we normally go Dutch. Because it's only fair.
But if it's a one to one, it depends. I prefer Dutch, but one of my besties always insist on paying. And so, I accept it graciously.
But if I'm with my cousins, oh, I'm always the one left with the tab. They don't even bother to offer. Why? Simply because "you are the eldest". But it doesn't even make sense.
Oh well, takes all kind to make the world. Doesn't it?
