    Great, dude! But now's the time to be paranoid and start saving that cash.
    I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said whatever it was.

    never pick up the tab when drinking with the following: Germans, Irish, Scots, Japanese and especially Canucks.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I don't pick up the tab, since I'm usually designated driver

    My experiences at the hospital (for work) in Detroit would make me follow this rule from now on.

    Never let a Canuck be responsible for the tip, either.



    Last time I asked for a raise, my boss raised his middle finger.
