While tipping waiters, barbers / stylists, valets, etc is a long time accepted social norm - what do you think about all of the other tip jars in the world. It seems that you can't buy anything anymore without being confronted with a tip jar. So - do you tip at Starbucks? Why or why not? I mean what's the difference between the salesman at NM, the cashier at Target, the guy who pours you a coffee at McDonalds and a Starbucks barrista. Why does one of these...
No. Its all reltaive - he is now more widely known than me - but that is not saying anything. My friend works in commercial real estate and is married with one kid. He is probably not too much different than the thousands of other Manhattan couples with two "Wall Street" jobs. He is willing to assocaite with me - so he is by no means a socialite

You should also consider whether the band you choose for your wife will match her engagement ring. (Assuming she will wear both together.)
Call me naive - but I think most Americans (across ages, races, etc) are socially liberal / progressive and fiscally conservative. There is one big reason why the current generation of young people lean left - the perception that GWB lied about a war in which their generation is the majority of the front line.

About two years ago Diners swithched to the Mastercard system in the US - it may still be on its own system in other parts of the world. So it accepted anywhere MC is - but it remains a charge card; not a credit card.

Written by someone who knows a lot more about evolution and its incompatibility with religion than any of us ever...
