Cash or credit when treating?

tinnywatty | Aug 24, 201105:40 PM     22

Does anyone else feel weird about paying in cash when treating others? When I'm splitting a check with someone, it's generally easiest to pay my part in cash (and since everyone has seen the bill, fumbling with cash doesn't seem as big a deal) but I always feel a little uncouth counting out the right amount of cash when I'm the only one paying. I think this has to do with a worry that it seems like I am going to effort counting out the cash, and therefore treating is an effort for me/I am scraping the corners of my wallet for funds (contrasted with the ease of just slapping down a card), since I can imagine feeling easier about putting down a 50 or 100 bill (which I never carry, haha). Any thoughts or opinions on this?
