Going Dutch

Any one who goes out to lunch with colleagues might have heard about this term. Today, I was having lunch with one of my good friend Bharani and suddenly this word popped up in our conversation. We both being avid fans of word origin stories, couldn't figure out how this was coined. Given by the name, could guess that it was something related to Dutch but could make no progress. You can check out the phrase on Wikipedia here. Well.. do not be disappointed that this has a negative meaning. As long as it does not hurt your pocket, it is good.
