One person always orders the $35 steak and you somehow always end up paying for it, even though you order entrees. Every time.
But for one mum, the problem lies in splitting the drinks.
Writing on Mumsnet, the user explained that she and her husband only drank water while her daughter and son-in-law, and his parents, ordered drinks throughout the night.
“I’ve just been for a meal with my daughter and son in law together with his parents. My husband and I arrived early so bought some drinks and were seated while we waited for the others. We had a very nice meal and had a good evening,” she began the post.
She continued to explain how the bill was split evenly between the six of them.
“However when the bill came my daughter split the bill evenly six ways but after our first drinks hubby and I only drank tap water (not because we are mean but because we like water with our meal) while the others all had at least two alcoholic drinks then coffees which were added to the bill,” she wrote.
She explained that she was uncomfortable with the fact that she ended up paying for everyone’s drinks, when she and her husband drank table water.
“Thus we ended up paying for a large portion of their drinks. Don’t get me wrong we are always willing to ‘get a round in’ when we socialise but having already bought our own drinks and not having any more I felt a little bit cheated or am I being a skinflint. Would it have been fairer to just split the food part?” she wrote.
