And So On and So Forth…

17 Aug

“Martha, the service was terrible. I refuse to tip the customary 15%. ”
“But, it’s customary.”
“No, Martha. I’m putting my foot down on this.”
“Gregory, don’t be so cheap. We did not tip last time and perhaps that is why the service has been so underwhelming tonight.”
“It’s not about being cheap Martha; it’s about the principle. And furthermore we did not tip last time because the service was bad last time as well.”
“Gregory, I do not want to earn a reputation as “that couple.” I just do not, Gregory. I do not.”

– Conversations from Hell.

      Well, the service was terrible. And the food is nothing to write home about either.
