Who is responsible for paying the bill?

Recommended Posts

We had some comment here were two people were together in a restaurant and one walked out and didn't pay - but he was supposed to pay.

What happens in such situations?

Who is legally responsible to pay the bill? The last person who was at the table? The person who made a reservation? Everybody only for his own part of the bill?

 

I never had that situation and I won't walk away without paying. But I think it's an interesting question.

Some invited people might not be able to pay an expensive bill.

Others maybe just don't want to pay if they were supposed to be invited.

 

How is that handled in Thailand?

 

Independent but related to the above question: A long time ago I saw that the police arrested a guy who didn't want to pay two lady drinks (less than 300B at that time). The staff asked him many times to pay. He didn't. The police arrived and told him to pay. He didn't. The police arrested him. So it seems the police do arrest people who don't pay.

Assuming the people knew each other, it would be assumed whoever was left at the table would be expected to pay. If by some strange situation two strangers were seated and were eating at the same table then perhaps it may be different.

Ultimately, I would have thought whoever consumed the food would have to pay for it, in the absence of who ordered it. Failing that whoever is left at the table.

.....and whoever wore the beer?

The other danger is if the restaurant picks up on a "split the bill" by a group and they add extra dishes to the bill as the person paying doesn't know what was actually ordered by who etc.

Not the one who goes to the toilet,just as the bill arrives.

It should be the ones responsibility that invited other's for

a meal

In regard to the post,were the A/h left the girl to pay the bill

i hope the police are involved in looking for him,OK she threw

beer on him ,maybe he deserved it,but the way he told the story

everything was her fault,but there are always two sides to every

story.
