In the Levant (Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan) and in some other Arab countries, the term shamia () refers to the inhabitants of Damascus in Syria, who are supposed to be stingy. Another similar term is Sherke halabieh (i.e. “divide the way to Aleppo”), which has a similar connotation. A Costa Rican system is known as ir con Cuyo, literally `go with Cuyo` (Cuyo is supposedly a person; it`s a stand-in-name, like `John Doe` in English). If one of them asks.” (`Who is Cuyo?) another may answer that he or she is (i.e. that person will pay the bill) or may propose “cada uno con lo suyo,” “everyone with his or her own,” meaning that each person has to pay for what they want. In any event, it is advisable to formulate the contractual terms in writing and have them signed by both parties in order to avoid difficulties in the content or even the existence of an agreement. In Egypt, it is called Englizy, which means “English style.” In some parts of Italy (especially in the south), the phrase pagare alla romana can be translated as “pay like the people of Rome” or “to pay in the Roman style” (in reference to modern and urban Rome, not ancient Rome). It has a double and opposite meaning, according to tradition: the modern and more frequent meaning is to divide the total cost equally between all dinners; the other is the same as “going Dutch.” This can lead to misunderstandings.  “Going Dutch” is a totally accepted practice in most of urban India. It is most common between friends, co-workers and couples to share the bill or ask for separate bills.
In Mumbai, Delhi and other cities, it is commonly called TTMM, for you to tera hand mera, literally means “You for you and me for me for mine”.” It is also acceptable to pay for the group`s alumni if the invitation has been extended by a younger one (say a niece who takes her aunts and uncles to dinner). Some of these expressions are still there and have taken on additional meanings. There are 10 of them. A popular etymology is that the reference “Dutch” comes from Dutch Schultz, a New York gangster from the late 1920s until the mid-1930s, who may have used Dutch games to enjoy gambling on horse racing, although his nickname comes from German (German) in terms of his Judeo-German origins. A Dutch agreement is an agreement between two drunks (“I will halve with you if I win the lottery”) and none of them remembers afterwards, which is fortunately if the lottery is actually won by one of the parties. “Going Dutch” (sometimes written with tiny letters in Dutch) is a term that indicates that anyone participating in a paid activity covers their own expenses, not a person in the group that bears the costs of the whole group. The term comes from the restaurant etiquette in the Western world, where everyone paid for their meal. It is also called Dutch date, Dutch treaty (the oldest form, a pejorative), and do Dutch. In Portugal, it is called contas moda do Porto, which means Porto style bills or a meias, represents half/fraction of the costs. In Chile, hacer una vaca (“produce a cow”) is used, which means that each participant pays in a common pool to pay the bill, either after the fact or in advance, when they buy for a meeting or a party in a house.
In this case, a person is called a “bank” (the one who withdraws the money).
