Oh Orly!

My friend and I went out to dinner and we decided to share a couple of plates. While I had to take a call, she ate almost everything and I barely got to taste the appetizer, not to mention I’m a slow eater.

She still wanted me to split the bill and I don’t think that was fair. What do you suggest I do next time?

Dear Marley,

Well, it is obvious you are upset about this and what I suggest you do next time is that you don’t propose sharing anything. You get what you want and she gets what she wants, and you ask for separate checks.

This way, you can take your time and eat your meal, and there is no unfairness because you get a bill for what you ordered. I believe that the only solution when dealing with these types of situations is to avoid any misunderstanding and unfairness.

All for the best,
