But I Didn’t Have Anything To Drink …

The hatred over splitting a bill with a big group at a restaurant is as universally shared as bad weather or traffic. But splitting a bill is something everyone has control over. I mean, it’s not like the sun didn’t come out: individuals miscalculated the tax and tip on their dinner. Splitting the Bill, The Problem, has an obvious solution: everyone pay exactly what they owe. Traffic patterns can’t be solved this easily.

But what’s also weird about splitting bills is that the people who actually profit from group meals presumably hate the experience, too.
