I always love the part in any mob movie when the head guy is out to eat or having drinks with his crew, and he reaches into his pocket and pulls out a wad of cash, counts the bills towards him from the roll, and then tosses it towards the server like a drop in the bucket. Nobody in his crew had any doubt about who was paying bill, nor would they try to embarrass themselves or the boss by trying to pay the tab themselves. Then why do so many people insist on fighting over the check when I bring it to the table? It's always the same thing. "Don't let anybody else at the table pay the bill but me!" "Give me the check! Nobody else!" Either that or it's a fencing dual with credit cards when I bring the check to the table. With couples arguing about who is hosting whom, with elbows, head-butts, and "Gambit-style" card throwing. And for what? To make somebody feel bad for wanting to pay? I've seen dog fights end with more dip
I am the leader of the server revolution! Taking the power away from the customers and putting it back in the hands of the bartenders and servers. Yelp off!!!
