Waiters will never fall for that, but nice try.

I really believe you'd try to point out the logical fallacies of the chicken's motivation for crossing the road.

There's a way to make it work.

Choose your benefactor on your way in. Stop by his table, tell him that you're going to buy his dinner, and to be sure to identify himself when you are dealing with your check.

Then, when your waiter presents your check, wave to your benefactor to get his attention. When he waves back, tell the waiter to give the check to the man who is waving.

Leave promptly.



Any cocktail can be a shrimp cocktail if you put your mind to it, and if you carry lots of loose shrimp in your pocket.

Were you born without a sense of humor or did you have it removed?

Now you're talking.

Even V-tail, whose post it was, was willing or maybe even happy, to continue to play around with it. You chose to be irritated. Why is that?

I've noticed that the more expensive the place, the more likely I am to get handed the bill.

This of course is hilarious because my wife makes roughly three times my salary.

Women sowed the fields of equality, society watered and fertilized. I for one think it's time to harvest. Oddly enough, I don't see very many protesting for equality of opportunity on a Bering Sea crab boat or a roofing crew.

How many times are you going to ask me this? I've already answered this question recently. It's because you have a maddening penchant for stating the obvious. If you ask me again, guess what? The answer will still be the same.

And I'm not irritated, and I didn't "choose" to react to your post in any particular way. I react as I react, and people who talk about "choosing" to react are phonies. Humans are just not built like that. You can tamp down your reaction, but you don't "choose" a reaction like this.

So, you're going to try to tell me you were just being funny? Man, that post of yours isn't even in the same galaxy as funny. I wouldn't have even considered it as an attempt at humor. I know funny. Funny is a friend of mine, and you, jhe, are not funny.

So, when I see a post like the one you put up, I just don't get it. Of course trying to give the check to another table wouldn't work, so what is the point of stating the obvious?

It doesn't matter to me who the check is handed to. I imagine the waiter takes a read as to who is paying. If they guess wrong, they guess wrong.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

If someone asks, motions, etc., give it to them. With no indication, place it on the table. There is no reason to risk alienating someone, and there is no reason for anyone to be offended by the check being placed on the table.


That's a good point. I remember lunches where our female boss would take us out. I don't remember how the check was handled, I was just sure not to look at the waiter's eye so that the check wasn't given to me.

I couldn't agree more. They're all feminists crying out for equality until the check comes or something dangerous needs done. Pretty narcissistic to want the power of men, the privilege of women, and the responsibility of neither.
