Should We Just Split the Bill Evenly? One in Three People Hate That
Chattanooga, Tennessee—(Wise Brother)
If you suggest this the next time you’re out to dinner friends, just know . . . one or two of them may secretly HATE you for it.
A new poll found a third of us don’t think splitting a restaurant bill EVENLY is a good idea, unless everyone’s order cost the same.
It was part of a bigger survey on sharing in general, and here’s one more thing to know about: That friend might also get annoyed if you ask to TRY their food.
Two-thirds said if someone asked to try their food, they’d consider not going out to eat with them again. (???) And 46% said it’s a red flag on a first date.
Most people admitted they usually say yes to that request anyway, because saying no just seems rude.
But if they do say yes, those non-sharers would like you to at least follow these two rules: Use your own fork . . . and put it on a separate plate, don’t eat directly off theirs.
(Another survey just last week asked about ordering different entrees with the INTENT to share everything. It found 35% of us never do that.)
