Btw young people nowadays use venmo to great effect...as I found out when I suggested c4est's strategy and everyone looked at me like I was calculating shit with a friggin sliderule.

If there's a large discrepancy, then of course it's a different story. I wouldn't expect someone who doesn't drink to split for the alcohol. My post mainly refers to people who are like "I didn't eat any of the queso" or mine was only 8.50 and yours was 9.75, etc.

And shoes trees Jos A Bank buy one get TWO FREE! sales are cheapest
or Nordstrom Rack has them for ~$12

Nice, found some Taccos that deoderize for under $10...How do I size? Like if I'm buying them for boots tagged 42 but that fit more like 43/43.5, do I get 43/10?

I hate when motherfuckers underestimate their share and don't consider tax and tip. Solution? Always order expensive ass shit to make sure you're getting what you pay for.

Only once in years of service did I have a table ask me to split a check by item. I looked at them like they were aliens and my manager looked at me like I was an alien when I asked him to do it, required a comp code so couldn't do it myself.

Went on a trip to attend an academic conference recently. School was reimbursing everything but required detailed receipts. Dinners out, we had to split the checks several (6 or 7) ways for expense reports and I hated it. A couple of times I tried to just pay the whole bill to avoid it but people refused.

Really? I can't say I've ever owned a single piece of anything from JCrew or the like.

The second is common with Chinese friends.

 

Reminds me of Chinese relatives fighting over who gets to pay the bill.

*cantonese*
*Person 1 takes money out*
P2: noooo nononononono, I'll pay the bill

P1: ahhh let me pay
P2: noooo noo no put your money away

P1: crazy? I'm the one who invited you

P2: you've been so kind blah blah blah, I'll take this one, you pay next time
P1: nooo no no I can't let you do that
 

 

and from here we see the two people, sometimes three or more shoving each others money back into each others wallets/chest pocket/w.e as they make way to the cashier grabbing the check from each others hands.

That's why you go pay the check when you pretend to go the bathroom

^ so true. I have at times absolutely had to use the bathroom trick or talk to the server ahead of time to preempt one of my Chinese friends from paying the bill. We would literally argue over it for 10 minutes sometimes!

I suggest looking in boutiques such as New York City, San Francisco, Houston Texas, Onotario Canada, and many more. Google, or Wikipedia should have a full list of retailers.

 

It should be noted that the ones made outside of far eastern parts of Asia are more likely not to fight over the bill. The made in asia ones are your best bet, but almost unobtainable without a cantonese/mandarin fluency promo code.

Vancouver is the real answer

I don't know what you are referring to specifically but I noticed that the new local Zara stocks a lot of Rick inspired stuff, which I was surprised to see. So whoever was asking if it was time to go short on gothninja can consider the meaning of that.

As u might expect it looks better online than in person but someone could probably incorporate a piece in a high/low fit.

The nonwhite tshirts are pretty good. The white ones are like wearing a tshirt made of one ply toilet paper.

What type of cloth do you guys use for shoe care (e.g. applying polishes, etc.)? Links please?
