和各种人吃饭如何分摊饭钱?(组图)

Whether you're taking a client to dinner, grabbing lunch with a new friend, or sharing a meal with your in-laws, awkwardness can immediately settle in when the bill comes and everyone stares, silently wondering, "Who pays?"

无论你是在餐厅与客户谈生意,与新朋友外出觅食,还是与另一半的家人一起吃饭,最尴尬的时刻莫过于——服务员送来账单,大家大眼瞪小眼,心里默默盘算着:“谁来买单?”

Several potential scenarios can play out:

有以下几种场景可能会出现:

Should you split the check evenly?

所有人平摊饭钱?

Should everyone pay for their own meal?

大家各付各的?

Is it expected that your father-in-law will pick up the check?

等着岳父或公公请客?

Every dining situation, from a birthday dinner to a double date, commands its own nuances when it comes to handling the check.

从生日聚餐到四人约会,无论哪种聚餐情形在买单上都会有细微差别。

We spoke with three experts Diane Gottsman, national etiquette expert and the owner of The Protocol School of Texas, David Weliver, founder of financial advice website Money Under 30, and Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick, founder and president of The Etiquette School of New York to definitively decide how to handle the bill in 10 common situations.

这次,我们与3位专家聊了聊如何解决10种常见就餐情形中的买单问题。他们分别是:全国礼仪专家及德克萨斯州礼仪学院的所有者黛安•戈特斯曼、金融建议网站Money Under 30的创始人大卫•韦利弗、纽约礼仪学校创始人及校长帕特里夏•纳皮尔•菲茨帕特里克。

"Other than business meals, there are no hard and fast rules for splitting the check," Napier-Fitzpatrick told Business Insider. In business, it's protocol for the person extending the invitation to pay.”

帕特里夏告诉我们:“与商务应酬不同,生活聚餐没有关于分摊账单的明确规定。在商务应酬中,发出邀请的一方请客,是一种惯例。

In terms of all other different scenarios, I would say there are certain guidelines, things one would do to make sure they didn't feel taken advantage of and that they're being considerate when it comes to paying for meals."

但其他的用餐情形仍然遵守着某些规则,正是这些规则能让人们觉得自己没被别人占了便宜,也能让人们觉得在付账时自己考虑的很周到。”

Read on to check out who's turn it is to pick up the bill when, and avoid those awkward "How do you wanna do this?" conversations for good.

继续阅读下面的内容,你就能知道什么时候买单、谁该买单,再也不用开口问“咱们怎么付账好?”这种尴尬的问题。
