1. It's Friday
2. Picked up a 6 pack of Grand Circus IPA for this weekend
3. Forecast for next week for SE MI low 30's high 40's
That's supposed to be a joint holiday, and yet somehow I end up flipping the bill for everything.
So I made reservations at a place that also happens to have 30 rotating drafts, I can't wait to see what they have.
Is flipping a bill different than footing a bill?
Generally the bill comes face down, so when you grab it you flip it over to see what the damage is. Is "flip" not acceptable? I've heard it used before.
I'd always heard foot the bill. Have no idea where "foot" comes from. Flip makes more sense. I just hadn't heard it before.
it's called foot the bill in europe, because it is a game where you kick the bill with your foot.
Flipping the bill = Dine and Dash!
Step 1: Get handed the bill
Step 2: Flip that bill over
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit by walking out on that bill.
"profit by being a total loser."
Oh come on. Just joking around buddy. I am much too big of a wuss to ever dine and dash. Plus that shit comes out of the waiter/waitresses pocket. It is a dick move, and I don't condone that action.
Isn't it illegal to make wait staff pay for customers who skip out on the bill? Not that some places don't still do it, but I thought that they technically weren't allowed to.
There was a bit of a hoopla online (Reddit and Gothamist, mostly) a while ago about a waitress who got fired from a Times Square pub when some businessmen ditched on their bill.
Good to know you wouldn't actually DO it, but unfortunately that kind of humor encourages some morons. Apologies if my sarc detector needs calibration.
BTW, I'm not the one who negged you.
wow didnt know that. i would be nervous if some ordered a lot and i was the waiter
Ok I need to clear up the origin of the Step 1, etc., profit thing. Is that originally from the South Park episode with Tweek and the underpants gnomes, or was that episode just mocking whatever that is actually from? I just saw the episode again the other day, and I was wondering if that was a South Park original.
As far as I know.
Tweek you need to calm down, here, drink some coffee.
I was mostly just curious because I didn't think a South Park episode would be such a popular reference on here. I guess I mistakenly thought most of you were more mature than you are. My bad.
We do still need somebody to run this Harbucks. I'm sure it will make a lot of money.
Oh no I think we'll be fine with the money we make selling our son into slavery
Re: more mature
South Park is one of the smartest satires on TV today. Sure, it comes with sophomoric jokes, but it is still witty and insightful.
Obviously I watch and enjoy South Park myself, and I agree that it is actually insightful as a satire, but I just don't see it as something that adults generally watch. Just joking in an attempt to get through Friday a little faster.
But it is one of if not the smartest show on TV. The fact that they filter it through 4th grade humor is what makes it hilarious
Well then I guess you haven't seen the Canadian comments from SP on here. Happens all the time buddy
Your Valentine's Day dinner includes a maitre d', nice tablecloth, roped-off dining, and a candle on your table. Unfortunately, the food is exactly the same….
