"My boss kicked a guy out for 'wasting ketchup' with his onion rings. She jumped that guy's ass and told him his parents didn't raise him right, and to never come back into the bar if he was going to be wasteful. Needless to say, he hasn't been back."
"Don't go to strip clubs and piss off your cocktail waitress or bartender. They will take your money and maybe put a half ounce of liquor in your drink. That's if they even put any at all. I've met many cocktail waitresses, and if you don't tip even on one round they will tell the bartender to pour vodka into your straw to make it taste like alcohol, but not really put any in your drink. Strip clubs are soulless places."
