New the dreaded bill split

n | Dec 8, 2005 06:36 PM

Another bill split dilema. I've never figured out how this happens, but I've figured out how to avoid putting myself in an awkward position. This is the senario - you go to dinner with a group 10-12+ (the larger the group the bigger the problem - $$$wise)
Everyone is responsible for their own food, drink, tax, and tip.

Somehow the money always comes up short. And the poor soul who volunteered to collect and count the money is left scrambling trying to straighten out the mess.

Do people have selective recall, somehow remembering the entree, but forgetting the appetizer, or dessert, or coffee, etc. It happens almost without fail.

I've haven't figured out why this happens, but I've learned NEVER to volunteer to count or collect the money. What is that all about?
