Separate checks please

I frequently go out to eat with my co-workers.

At the restaurant we all order our meals and after great food and conversation the one check comes listing everyone’s order on a single print out.

My co-workers begin calculating, we all pool our money and pay.

Then later, I get the feeling that I may have paid too much. Because didn’t I get the cheapest thing on the menu but somehow I’m paying the same amount as you? And the entire dining experience is soured for me.

And so I said “NO MORE!!!!”

Now when I am at a restaurant with my co-workers – I order my meal and tell the waiter “separate checks, please”

Some of my co-workers groan and roll their eyes but this is what works for me.
