As an ABC, or Australian-born Chinese, I’ve become accustomed to the spectacle of bill squabbling – routinely occurring at the culmination of catch-up or celebratory dinners with a friend’s family. The first indication would be a slight hand movement, typically of my father’s or my friend’s father’s, towards his wallet. In almost choreographed synchrony, the opposing father would match this movement with alacrity, bearing either a wad of cash or a glossy credit card in record time and indignantly exclaiming “Let me pay!”. Acting incensed, the other father would reply, louder: “No, please, let me pay!” Typically, this would last for two to three more rounds with each father further elaborating on his argument as to why he should foot the bill:
“Remember last time you took care of my son when he came over for a sleepover?”
“But you helped my daughter find her tutor during Year 9!”
“No but that was because you introduced us to this nice suburb when we first came to Australia!”.
