I'll get it

Post by STEVENSAKURA » Sun Jul 25, 2010 4:03 pm

- When it's time to pay the bill, and you want to pay for your friend also, you say these pharses (I heard in American and British movies)

"It's on me"
"Let me get the check"
"My treat"
"I'll get it"

- Could you guys tell me some other common and natural phrases? :)

Thanks a million!

Put your wallet away and Your money's no good here is very common in my region, as is You get it next time (we would say You'll). I never heard of the first and the last.
