I don't remember where on the site I read it or the time period it was written. I remember reading it during 2010 but it could have been written any time prior to that.
The commenter was (I think) responding to someone else in a thread who had described what it was like among his ethnic group arguing over paying a bill.
The commenter, using hyperbole, then described a scenario in which two male Chinese relatives would argue over a bill and how it would escalate from "No, I insist!" to both parties standing up and grabbing for the bill.
The comment included something about slapping the other persons hand if he had managed to get his hand on the bill.
