Hellllooo everyone out there,

How is it going with you all?

Did you spend more time than you wanted to when you went on an excursion with your friends?

Well, I almost had my pockets empty yesterday when I had to treat my group of friends at a five-star restaurant.

It would not have been the case, had we gone dutch.

Don’t you think so?

Welcome back yet again to another chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn some new vocabulary every day with context and examples and so will you today.

So without further ado, let’s get down to the business and see today’s context:


It was 31st May, a very special day for me as it was the birthday of one of my close-knit friend Josh.

The day was full of excitements, happiness, and surprises for him as there were continuous wishes coming with gifts along. We all wanted to have something delicious for dinner so we all decided to go to a five-star restaurant near Square Lane and have something scrumptious there.

Since we supposed that Josh will pay for all, no one even bothered about the bill and ordered almost half of the menu.

After finishing the dinner, the waiter came with the bill and left it on the table.

It took us all by surprise when we saw the total amount.

If we had bought the grocery items for the same amount, I can say for sure, we would have had food for almost next 25 days.

I knew Josh would never ask for money from us although the bill was way too much. I felt a little bad at that moment, so I myself asked all my friends to go dutch.

Everyone happily agreed to it and each member paid their share of the money and returned back home.


By the way, did you ever go dutch?


Hopefully, by now you know what it means when you are asked to go dutch.

Well, for those who are still confused about what it means?

It simply means that every person in the group will pay for their own meal.
