Sometimes it makes more sense to split the check equally, but what about if everyone got 3 fancy cocktails each and all you chomped on was a little side salad? Or, what do you do when you're out with a married couple and you're expected to split the check two ways?

I (28M) have have 2 friends dee (27F), and Tommy (29M). We've known each other since middle school and make a point to make time to keep in touch and eat out at least once a month but often twice. We live a 40 minute drive apart but it's worth it to keep the friendship alive. This died down during the pandemic but we're back at it semi regularly again.
