Suggestion to people who dine out in groups and get separate bills

With modern POS systems, splitting the check is no problem at all and it eliminates some of the problems with people not throwing in enough to to cover what they had. While splitting the check is easy, what often throws the server off is collecting for 10 separate checks using credit/debit cards. With the new chip and pin terminals it often takes a minute per card, so 10 minutes to collect payment, during which time the server's other tables are neglected.

Please consider making it easier for your server to provide good service, and bring cash in appropriate denominations if you're dining out in a group and getting separate bills.
