Not if the math is done correctly.
not if they dont have any interest, and pay it right away
While this is true, I think the op is referring to the fact that when one person pays with credit card, everyone gives what they think they owe and the person with the credit card has to pay the difference if it's short anything
o i have a thing on my phone that you put in how many people there are and what the final bill is and tells you exactly whatevery one owes
Ya but people almost never have exact change and when you pay a little extra for each person it adds up to a lot
Yeah, but that's only if you want to split it evenly. When we order food here, you pay what you owe.
Or debit, cause if the cash person owes $10.50 for dinner plus $3.50 for drink = 14 they usually round down and don't bother with tax either. Which is why I decline using my card and having people pay me back.
You can ask for it to be split among cards and cash, as well as separate bills. However if you have 1 bill and don't want to split it evenly, then we have reached an impass.
