When boyfriend and I go out to dinner, we usually split the check. Other times, one of us would pick up the whole tab.
I’ve noticed something interesting – when we ask for the check, sometimes the waiter/waitress would place the check towards boyfriend, clearly in his direction or by his arms (on the flip side, I’ve never received a check that was clearly in my direction – it’d be in the middle of the table).
Is the waiter subconsciously nodding to the traditional man-paying-for-dinner practice? Or maybe boyfriend always sits towards outside of the table.
I’m not offended, just found it curious.
Has anyone experienced something similar?
