    This has always bothered me as well. I have just assumed, the original phrase “check, please” originated because patrons wanted to “check” their bill. That is, they are really communicatiing “Please give me my bill so that I can check it, please.”. Therefore, I never ask for my “check”. I ask for my bill, which drives my wife crazy. If we are ever at dinner with friends, and they ask for the check, I say “Amazing. They are going to give us a check for eating here?”. I know – I am an ass, but this phrase is just lemmings just following the non-sensical verbage they have others use.
