Sink your teeth into today's top stories from around the globe.
On splitting the check: 47 separate checks is more than a bit excessive. They should have been up front with their coupons and split checks. However, I have to wonder at the sheer idiocy of the wait staff.
Why in the world didn't the wait staff ask the group at the beginning if they would be paying together or separately? And who in the world would assume that one college student is going to pick up the tab for a group of 47.
The wait staff has to take some responsibility for that. They couldn't do anything about the coupons, but they could have used their brains and at least asked how the party would be paying, or barring that, assumed each person would have their own tab. I'm sure it's easier to combine the checks then separate them. If the staff can't think that far ahead, they basically put themselves in that situation.
most restaurants have a 6+ party all goes on one check policy also. it is set to avoid issues like a 47 split on a tab. so many things that could have been done to prevent the issue if people would just look further than the end of their nose.
The way this country is going, Snoop Dogg is going to be our president someday. And we will deserve it.
Ouch! Man, I swear I hope I never live to see the day.
President Calvin Broadus AKA Snoop Dogg would lead a very mild-mannered, peaceful, and munchy crazed population. I'm down.
I honestly would not be surprised, given the pop culture obsession we have today. I sound like my father, but it used to be if a girl got pregnant, it was something to hide, now you get a reality show. Our values are disappearing before our eyes.
In twenty years, I think the film "Idiocracy" is going to look like a History Channel documentary.
i had the same thought about Idiocracy! yeeeesh! we laugh...but it's very possible that much of that mentality is already here.
Stoop dogg looks like a Dr. Seuss character.
Agreed. Do you think we can convince him to try to get some truffles from that French farmer?
