Back in the day the men folk would buy the rounds. Some more reluctantly than others! One of my BFFs now has a partner where they split everything down the middle. She is older than me btw. He doesn't earn as much as her, times have changed....

Re: Come On, Admit How Tight You Are?

I go out most Saturday afternoons with a great bunch of friends, up to six of us normally.
We generally buy our own first drink as we all usually arrive at the first pub separately. After that and depending on how many of us there are out, we either split into twos or decide to buy one round each per pub.
Some rounds are more expensive but it all equals out roughly the same in the end. Sometimes one person might be lucky and get a cheap round but none of us are so tight as to quibble about it.

Also, it really is a popular misconception that Northerners are tight with their cash. Sometimes we may be careful as we don't have as much dosh as Southerners, but we are very generous and help others out, often to our own expense. It's all about sticking together and we're the best at doing that.

I gave a waiter a £5.00 tip in Frankie and Bennys, I worry about income not expenditure.

That's right mate. Although personally speaking, I've put impulse ahead of caution in the past. Have a good time and deal with the cost of it later.

Re: Come On, Admit How Tight You Are?

I always liked to get the first round.

Don't know why, I just did.

Part of what makes me me I guess.
