The reason for the dine-and-dash? Most people said they were sick of waiting for the check. Another 25-percent admit they'd consider bailing if it took longer than a half-hour to get the bill.

This comes as a new app called "Invisibill" allows customers to leave as soon as they finish eating. Payment is then credited to the restaurant.
