Not just Singapore, variations on a theme but you'll find that across the world.

I thought sharing cab right home post-midnight is a good idea. Who on earth would want to spend SGD4/5 on Night Rider bus when you could get comfortable ride home (sharing a cab) for almost same price or little few more dollars?

The bill splitting really is one of my biggest bug bears.....

Some you win some you lose.

Whats the point of a forensic analysis of the bill when it comes.

"I didnt have this , I didnt have that"

You just come across as a complete tight arse , who isnt going to be invited along again!!!
Life is short, paddle harder!!

Sharing a cab is better than catching a night rider and then figuring out which way home is, especially after a drinking night out ...
