    Folk who when out eating in a group donít want to split the bill evenly because they never had a dessert or drank much etc. Does my nut in, once had a ďfriendĒ try the same in a group of five couples, embarrassed him by telling him to put his wallet away, if he was that hard up I would pay his bill for him. He never done that again in our company.

    For me it's fair enough that someone who isn't drinking doesn't end up paying for everyone else getting sozzled before, during and after a meal. I eat with the same crowd most Saturday lunchtimes. Some don't (always) drink and some drink plenty. We generally have the non drinkers pay less then split what's left evenly.

    It should also be remembered that some folk are tight for cash and they shouldn't be excluded because they have to watch what they spend. I'm happy enough to help these people out (we've all been there) instead of embarrassing them.

    Aw come on mate, Iím not talking about non drinkers or folk that have to watch the pennies, weíve all been there and I would never embarrass someone in that position. I am talking about general tight gits who maybe had one thing less or one coke instead of a beer on one round. There is no one in our company in these situations that has to watch pennies.

    Drives me mad.

    I cannot be arsed spending 10 minutes with everyone acting like Rainman trying to work out their share. Unless there is a big disparity like someone having a salad and someone else having a filet mignon then get on with it, split the bill and move on.

    Often 1 of us will pay the whole bill to save the restaurant time and then get everyone's share sent via e-banking right away.

    The servers also prefer it that way!

    Nothing more annoying that a massive table trying to split their bill and paying separately!

    People who alter their drinks order and how much they drink because there is a free bar or someone else is paying. I drink lager or beer and will occasionally have a whisky. If I'm paying that's what I'll drink, if someone else is paying that is still what I'll drink.

    We were out with work the other week and one of our office crew was pleading poverty all week and stressing she was only out for 'a couple'. First bar we went to she ordered 'the cheapest gin' and paid for her own. No problem with that, she always drinks gin when we are out. Then the boss came along and said the night was on him. Suddenly it was cocktails, double this and double that, champagne and all sorts. It was just embarrassing.

    It seems to happen quite often. People find out they can get a free drink and go on a mission to guzzle down as much as they can to take advantage. ****ing winds me right up.
    I see where you're coming from but at the same time the behaviour is completely normal...the boss turns up and you exploit that within reason of course. I'm a senior manager and I expect folk to take the piss with expenses, that's how it goes.

    I sometimes watch Salvage Hunters on quest. For some reason I feel this rage build up when the trevento wine advert comes on at the start and ad breaks. A group of ****y blokes lauding each other for the challenges they faced in their hobbies(?).

    Doesn't make me drink the wine as much as put a bottle through the TV.

    Anyone else experience irrational rage?

    **This does not include **** threads started by aresholes on this forum

    Going back to this OP, I fully agree with you re that bloody advert, does my threepennies in, I'd happily slap the lot of them.

    Iím not giving an opinion, I am stating fact, it is a remote control so shortened to remote will suffice anything else is wrong.😁

    You've put a smiley so I'll assume you're not being too serious. Of course it's a remote control, but like many other things some people choose to give it another name. 😁
