Just different cultures, I guess.

Yes. I don't want to get too off topic, so I'll just link to a page that I think does a good job explaining the US mentality towards tipping.

Yes, you're right. Thanks for the link.

OK, let's get back on topic. If I was serving drink to 3 out of the 4 Beatles at the bar, and they "stiffed" me, I would just be happy that I had a great story to tell. (Oh, I might start singing "You Never Give Me Your Money" under my breath as they left.)

I just hope stiffed didn't mean not paying the bill itself. I don't think back then nightclubs were yet in the habit of comping drinks just because you're awesome.

Surely they wouldn't leave without paying? I hope not.

Next time I see my friend, I'll have to ask her. She'll probably laugh as I'm sure she only meant to tell the story as an idle aside. But now I'm thinking of this story:

We went out to a Chinese restaurant in Bangor and ate on our own - just the Beatles, myself, maybe one or two others. When the bill came, we couldn't pay. The Chinese waiter amazingly didn't recognize them, and he was afraid we were going to do a runner. Suddenly, George put his bare foot on the table and opened the sole of his sandal, where he had hidden a £20 note. The Beatles were like the royal family. They didn't have money, didn't use money. But George had put this £20 note there just for this sort of situation.

which makes me wonder what normally happened when someone in their entourage wasn't around to take care of their tabs, particularly when they weren't in London, where the proprietors might just know to send a bill.

And go George for being prepared!

This funny incident sounds like it should have been written into the lyrics of George's "Old Brown Shoe." :)

Weren't their early suit pockets sewn up or came without? (That could be complete nonsense and wrong.)

No idea. I suppose, now I think about it, they haven't got them in A Hard Day's Night (that I can think of). Wonder what the story there is. I suppose if they didn't carry money, and mobiles were a little in the future yet, they had no real need for them.

Edit: No, they haven't

And a lot of those flowy hippie shirts and pants are made without pockets.

In the bottom right pic George has his hand in a pocket. Maybe by then he had moved up from keeping money inside shoes - better than keeping it up his nose.

Yesterday afternoon, I took my mp3 player with me upstairs to listen to the Beatles while I walked on my treadmill. My mom called, and I was talking to her as I finished my walk. Being distracted, I left the mp3 player on the treadmill tray. This morning, I had the water all warm in the shower and realized that I had left the player upstairs. I didn’t go get it. I just turned on the shower radio instead. It is still tuned to the local country music station. And what started playing?!?! This line from Boys ‘Round Here: “Well the boys 'round here don't listen to The Beatles / Run ole Bocephus through a jukebox needle.”

And why is this a Beatley moment? Just last night, some people started making posts to the Songs With Beatles References thread, and I remembered that there was another similar thread that I had posted Boys ‘Round Here to not long ago. So I merged the two threads to have the conversation in one handy, tidy place. So when that song started playing on the radio this morning, it gave me the feeling again that The Beatles are watching me. All of those things had to fall neatly into place for me to have that Beatley moment. I love you Beatles, oh yes I do…

 

The line I’m talking about starts at :30 in this video, which is EXACTLY what started playing on the radio this morning.
