Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I think the tipping thing (and this ties into the objectivism threads) is less about aspergers and more about being selfish.

    Nah it's definitely the 'spergers

    I read that as Sab a bitch and then wondered how exactly that would work.

    Maybe if Poldy was a little more selfish he'd be able to eat, and wouldn't look like a smack head with TB.

    What, with your teeth?

    I think a better story would have been that you reached for it but ended up grabbing her thigh or something.

    I did a sitting dive. You know, when you lean out of your chair left/right while still sitting. What, did you want me to catch without moving, just with my arm, like some movie ninja dude? I'm not a movie ninja dude, buddy.

    How high are your damn chairs where you had the room to bend so far as to mack ass contact before your hand hit the ground. Or were you diving ahead like Superman?

    Like, there have been times when I've been selfish and not tipped well because I was low on cash. If I was low on cash, I shouldn't probably have been dining out, and I recognize the selfishness of it.

    To not even recognize the social structures, and think that your individual selfishness will have an effect, is pretty fucked up.

    Constitutional law. I just realised I haven't really paid any attention to the cases, though I more or less know the rules.



    Funny story about tipping. Whenever we leave cash, my girlfriend insists on hiding the bills under the bill - not for security, but because it looks like we left a measly dollar until the server moves it. Drives me nuts. Sure, the server only temporarily hates us for those few seconds, but still.

    Well, I could be wrong, but I think of Aspergers as more a disorder of perception, and thus any social dysfunction arises out of obliviousness. But these people who think they should never have to tip aren't unaware of the reasons for tipping or anything, they just don't care.

    No, it is. Water should be done by the bus boy.

    Two reasons for it though: a lot of times they mean free refills. That's pretty nasty, and a lot of times managers will hold back their waiters if this is the case.

    If not, I always find it funny how essential drink refills are to a nerd's dining experience.

    Yeah, I rarely eat out and if I do it'll usually be somewhere where I'll get something much better than what I can cook. Which means that I'm prepared to drop what's a pretty massive tip since as far as I'm concerned I'm blowing cash anyway. Otherwise I generally avoid eating out since I see it as too much of a luxury for me and I know I'll feel bad if I have to give an average tip when I got good service.

    Yeah, many people don't get that eating out is a luxury. You are there to be pampered or impress (like on a date or something.)

    There's a pulse in the new-born sun;
    A beat in the heat of noon;
    There's a song as the day grows long,
    And a tempo in the tides of the moon.

    It's all around us and it's everywhere,
    And it's deeper than Royal blue.
    And it feels so real you can feel the feeling!

    And that's The Majesty Of Rock!
    The fantasy of Roll!
    The ticking of the clock,
    The wailing of the soul!
    The prisoner in the dock,
    The digger in the hole,
    We're in this together...and ever...

    In the shade of a jungle glade,
    Or the rush of the crushing street,
    On the plain, on the foamy main,
    You can never escape from the beat.

    It's in the mud and it's in your blood
    And its conquest is complete.
    And all that you can do is just surrender.

    To the Majesty of Rock!
    The Pageantry of Roll!
    The crowing of the cock,
    The running of the foal!
    The shepherd with his flock,
    The miner with his coal,
    We're in this together...and ever...

    When we die, do we haunt the sky?
    Do we lurk in the murk of the seas?
    What then? Are we born again?
    Just to sit asking questions like these?

    I know, for I told me so,
    And I'm sure each of you quite agrees:
    The more it stays the same, the less it changes!

    And that's The Majesty Of Rock!
    The Mystery of Roll!
    The darning of the sock,
    The scoring of the goal!
    The farmer takes a wife
    The barber takes a pole.
    We're in this together...and ever...

    I'd prefer if they ask, but that presupposes they're coming around and asking, and not just avoiding all eye-contact.

    The trick is to precariously balance empty glasses on the very edge of the table so that they're pretty much forced to see it, and if they try to ignore it and rush by there's a good chance they'll knock it off

    Not really. I work at actual restaurants that don't do gimmicky stuff like waitered-down refills, but I know how restaurants work and I've heard multiple stories about managers being cocks like that.
