    It's not the money, i don't care about that - it's the fact it was done without asking.

    And the fact it was sneaky. I have a friend who I always pay for little bits and pieces and it becomes grating.
    I would ask for the money for their stuff as you spent more and therefore contributed to the discount more.

    I think it's pretty sneaky. As you say, it's not about the money, it's just a little off. You spent the greater amount yet they benefited.

    I think it would have been polite to ask you first. Then maybe collect $5 off each or something?
    re: the credit card payment, I usually pay on my credit card for people and I can tell you I almost never get more, I usually get correct amount or less!! (probably because my friends and family are stinge and if something cost $12 they would give me $10 and say "oh it's ONLY $2")

    If I was buying $95 worth I would have just grabbed $5 more worth of stuff and paid $90 myself!

    But I think its rude that the person didnt ask you if they could do that - Im sure you would have said yes.

    .
    That was my thought too

    Is it possible the person whispered because it was cheeky and not because they specifically didnt want you to hear? ...if you know what I mean.

    I would be pssed off too OP! The sneakiness and not asking or even suggesting to you that you split it. It's not about the $, it's the principle.

    If it was my sister who is a major tightar$e I'd call her out and demand she pay me the $5. If it was a friend I wouldn't say anything but I'd be annoyed they tried to do it behind my back.

    I didn't know how much it would all cost and considering how packed it was i couldn't just go grab more stuff.
