So, I bet that Tecs has bought his last round.

Of course this is before Tecs has bought his first round.

What does it mean to "buy a round"? Me estupido, me no comprende.

"Buy a round" means buy beers for the whole table.
I can just about sense the shivers and hives bursting out all over your body.
Should I tell the ER people to wait up for you with the appropriate meds?

Tecumseh said...

I dunno about that. I'm Dutch.

Coanda never went Dutch.

In some parts of Italy (especially the south), the expression pagare alla romana can be translated as: "To pay like people of Rome" or "to pay like they do in Rome". It has the same meaning as "going Dutch".

The corresponding phrase in Turkish is hesabı Alman usulü ödemek, which can be translated into English as "to pay the bill the German way".

Some Latin American countries use the Spanish phrase pagar a la americana (literally "to pay American style") which refers to a trait attributed to people from the United States or Canada.
