We Need to Talk: I’m Sick of Splitting the Check

This week on We Need to Talk, we’re delving into the (oft-uncomfortable) topic of friends and money — do they mix or is it oil and water?

We’ve been that person who ordered a salad and a water, only to be faced with a $40 bill at the end of the night, because “why don’t we just split it evenly?!” Then again, when a friend offers to pick up the tab, it’s a heady feeling. So, where’s the line?

Our Social Media Manager, Caitlin Timson, and Copyeditor & Writer, Abigail Yonker, chat about that line and their differing opinions on whether or not loaning money — be it a drink or a plane ticket — to friends is gucci or no bueno.

P.S. Watch till the end to see our favorite bloopers! They get better every week — seriously, it’s not just because it’s us. (*cough*)
