Your Take: How do you deal with “Splitting the check?”

June 7, 2010

Oh yeah – the ol’ splitting of the check discussion, it never gets old ;) Probably because it often means someone stealing our hard earned money and we’re pissed! Haha…You know what I’m talking about right?  You eat $20 worth of food but Bob the Spendthrift convinces everyone to just “split it,” now leaving you on the hook for $40? It’s not fun. And I […]

Unfortunately I was there due to my iPhone getting the white screen of death (and have to go back tonight to get the screen replaced – for FREE thank goodness!  It luckily fell under the 1 year warranty) but as I pass all the shiny lights and smiling faces, […]
