Splitting the bill

Today's Michelle Singletary column gives the winners of her annual Penny Pincher contest. She also talks a bit about people's hostility toward those who insist on splitting restaurant bills accurately, of which I happen to be one. One trick my wife and I have always used, if we're out just having drinks with friends, is to go get our drinks from the bar. That way, we're not involved in the tab at all, and we can avoid that fight altogether.

The contest's winner, by the way, is someone who washed out a soda bottle she bought in D.C. and took it home to Hawaii, where it was worth a five-cent refund. Frugal as I am, that contest's winners always outdo me.
