Yesterday, I went to a meetup for foodies. I don't usually join these unless they go somewhere cheap/moderate, and yesterday was a dim sum gathering in Chinatown. I was thinking of this thread because someone was telling me about another, more expensive, foodie group he belongs to where tipping turns into a competition of douchebag proportions. "Oh, you only tipped 30%? Well, I tipped 40." I imagine waiters secretly rolling their eyes as they pocket their cash.

I have my iTunes set to crossfade songs when I'm shuffling, so there's not 5 seconds of silence between each songs, right?

So I was shuffling some songs, and I Want You came on, so at the end, I'm waiting... and then it goes into I'm Looking Through You instead of stopping! That's one of the times when crossfade sucks, the good thing is most songs don't have that kind of thing.

I can't imagine tipping an extra 30%-40%. What must the waiter or waitress do to/for you to deserve that? Eating out is expensive enough without that on top. People that tip that much just to prove they have the most money should find better things to do with it.

Don't worry Emily, I'll build a bridge and get over it....maybe

Why did it say that though, if it was from 2010?

Agreed. I think at that point it's less about the service and all about the ego.

I like the way the blog refers to him as "Wings legend Paul McCartney"! I agree, obviously, that JPM is definitely a legend, and Wings were a great band on their day, but I think Paul's legend status has a lot more to do with another band he was in!

He's a Beatle fan, so I think he was being facetious.

It reminds me, when I was a kid, there was a TV ad for a classic rock radio station in Chicago in which a child approaches her father and says, "Dad, was Paul McCartney in a band before Wings?" Cue deadpan look.

Jeff Lynne? Didn't think they saw each other much since ELO suck.

 

Have felt like crap all day. How can you go to bed not tired and wake up feeling knackered, drained and energy-less?

No no, the Dylan fellow. He's got some great albums.

Dylan Thomas? He died in 1953. Paul would have been 13!

He travelled a lot and had a hamster and a mouse both called Wilbury who went with him. The Traveling Wilburys. Any other entity with that name is a copyright issue.
