I'd compare it more to 20 people going for dinner for a friend's birthday. Some have 1 course, some 2 and some 3. There's always someone who has salad because their on a diet, then a few propose that they all split the bill equally. Only the people who had 3 courses, including the most expensive steak on the menu, and drank double spirits all night are ever going to be happy with that scenario, but we've all been there and heard the muttered grumblings of whoever paid 40 for a salad and one glass of the house plonk.
There are times when paying 40 for a salad and one glass of the house plonk is the best solution. The price of a taxi* instead of the last train home because folks want to calculate who owes what quickly alters that situation.

* or on one famous occasion, the income lost when paid by the hour and clocked out for lunch. That was painful.
