If you want something a specific way you make eye contact with your server, when he arrives at your table you say something like “ please split the check when we’re done”. It’s not hard and it’s not worth getting annoyed aboutAnytime my dad is in town I have to catch the server and tell them that I or my husband will take the check otherwise they give it to my dad because he’s the eldest male at the table. I prefer that my dad not be given the opportunity to pay so I tell them often before we’ve even ordered. It avoids the necessity of a busy server having to figure out who pays what when I’m the one that knows.
I just assume they know to bring 2 checks.
Why do you get mad at them for assuming when you are assuming as well?Just tell them what you expect , easier for them easier for you.
what country are you from?
they don't even give you time to tell them
I’m from the us. If it’s important to me. I grab them before I order or during ordering and it’s not that big of a deal to just tell the how to do it when you’re ready for the check
They do that with 2 guys to, as well as 2 girls. It's because you're sitting at the same table together so they automatically assume it's one check. If you want to pay seperately, then you have to tell the server that you want separate checks when you order.
They do that with me, too. I think if you don't tell them ahead of time, they just assume it's on one check. I usually ask them to split the bill when they ask if we're ready to pay, but sometimes I forget until they bring it.
Because you don’t specify separate checks. More often than not if 2 people from the opposite gender are out to eat it’s one check. So it’s on you or your dining companion to specify separate checks.
waiters ask though it's waitresses that seem to make these assumptions
I haven’t noticed waiters or waitresses asking when I take out a girl. But in a larger party they will generally ask. Guess it depends on who is serving that day. Still if it annoys you it’s better to set the expectations before ordering.
When I go out with my guy friend we split the bill and all is ok. I never make big deal out of it.Sometimes he pays for everything, but I don't like it. I don't want him to think I'm using him and he never let me pay entire amount.
They usually do this unless you tell them. It is more of a management decision to save paper and to try to get customers out for the next customers. It has nothing to do with if you are dating the guy or not.
Relax, they do that with literally everyone just ask for separate checks when you order.
As a restaurant worker I can tell you we won't remember you
I meant in general. instead of asking if its separate they just hand the guy the bill
Once again we won't remember you and therefore assume your like the rest of the people and would like a single check
Are you asking a rhetorical question?
no im serious
because you don't tell them to put it on 2 tabs
yeah. i personally both should pay for the other on the first date.
