Occasionally I am ok with splitting the bill at a bar or restaurant with friends when we all had pretty much the same drink and food cost. But it seems that more and more when I go out with friends that they order more drinks and order more expensive food than I do but they always suggest that we pay an equal amount/split the bill and tip. How do I go about without making waves or bad feelings to say that I only want to pay for my part? I got totally "hosed" again last night when this happened. One person at the table didn't even pay enough for her multiple drinks and food because we all split the bill evenly so I ended up paying much more than I wanted to or should have. But I stayed silent because I didn't want to look like an a$%. Any thoughts or suggestions to keep the peace but not have to pay more all the time?
