Well we have one set of friends who are very generous so we usually end up fighting over who is going to pay for the entire check.  When it's  a different set of friends I prefer to split evenly unless someone in the group is a complete moocher then you pay for what you ordered.

I have a gf who can't add, hasnt ran to the atm or always like I only have twenties, well bish you better ask for change. I do not like lunching with her Confused and now when we meet I get there early and already order so when she shows up they already have a new tab waiting on her trifling azz. 

After that Ruth Chris Fiasco , never again .

Bish always want 2 glasses of $25 Merlot then wanna split it in half, nope I had one martini and it wasnt no $25.

Depends on the fiends and family. If they're close enough, I'm more apt to just pick up the tab. Otherwise, slip me the bill for exactly what I ordered. I've also had people ante up cash to me and I put the whole thing on my card-- I don't carry cash and they were sweet enough to do that.

Hmmm-- I wouldn't be opposed to splitting evenly, it's just never come up.

And:

Alla this. I'll pick up a tab just to avoid this kind of embarrassing foolishness.

Either A or C, depending on who I'm with.
 
If I'm with my children, pay for everything with no expectation that they'll pick up the next check. If I'm with my sibs, then we rotate. If I'm with close friends, we either rotate or split checks evenly.

I prefer to do "A" above.
It kind of embarresses me when ppl take out the calculator and try and account for every nickle and dime.  In most cases, I may end up paying maybe $10-$15 more which is worth avoiding the hassle of saying" hey didn't you order 2 drinks, or policing or keeping tabs on others".  For my group of friends it just works out better for us.

yesss omg... one set with their calculators, the other either pay the whole thing or split down the middle. Smh @ tweaking your order depending on your company. sometimes I feel like just appetizers so the bill is extra long... they start hyperventilating and sh*t... I got it, calm down
