Abel to Yzerman

We’ll Have 3 Burgers, 2 Chips, Some Guac and….37 Coronas.  Charge It To The Kid.

When you've got a day off after winning three in a row on a road trip that was supposed to signal the end of joy forever?  

You do what men do.  Drink a little and mess with the most junior guy you can find.

Etiquette! I knew you slobs cleaned up well.

Even though I know the rules, I always tip on the final amount. I’m not wealthy, but I can afford it, especially more than someone making $3.50/hr plus tips. Kudos on Smith for tipping about 20%

Have you seen Flip?!  HANDS DOWN the MOST Metro dude on the Wings.  Hands down.  Dude says he loves Burberry.  Come on.

I just figured he was shopping while the boys were drinking.

And MOWF, it literally is.

I like that the team’s getting that comradery back, maybe not being as cliquey?  This reminds me of the shenanigans while Drapes was there.  This part of the equation is integral for Swagger.

A metro dude, shopping in Scottsdale, AZ?

Hmm, I think that if he was he’d be waiting for better towns wink

Corona is made to export out of Mexico.ANY beer you HAVE to put fruit in to make it somewhat drinkable is just bad.
When I was in Australia, they said the same thing about Forsters… “we make that piss to send to the States, mate”. Gimme a Victoria Bitter or XXXX.

I have a granddaughter at ASU; trust me there is a lot of shopping in the area. Lots of wealthy Euros, snowbirds, etc. winter there, so the ultra high end stuff is well represented.

For those of us who can’t spend like athletes and actors, there is a small chain of consigment shops in the Southwest called My Sister’s Closet. The one in Scottsdale has every high-end, Euro and hipster designer you’ve ever heard of. I’ve scored some nice Nate Nast stuff in their mens department. If I’m chauffering the wife and grand daughter around on a shopping safari, I may as well get something for myself, right? cool smile

Good to see he didn’t chintz on the tip.  That’s always appreciated.

The wife of a well known NASCAR Crew Chief tipped my daughter $100 a day for serving her and her friend at her cabana beach/pool side, of course that was for 4 to 6 hours among her other customers.  Her day off the lady called for the manager and asked her where my daughter was, so the manager called my daughter and asked her if she wouldn’t mind coming in.  The last of her 5 days at the resort she doubled her normal tip.

So the device he used to take & tweet the picture doesn’t have a caculator on it?

And I’m betting Smith’s probably never read Ms. Post so he’s shooting for 20% here.

And I’m not saying the tip wasn’t generous…

Fretting over precise Emily Post tipping guidelines with a calculator is for women meeting for lunch salad and diet flavored iced tea ( I’ve seen it numerous times, always comical).  He apparently did a pretty commendable and quick 20% tip for Dora.  She in turn would have had to tip out a fair chunk of that, 25-33%, to the bartender for the alcoholic drinks he got ready for her, even if it only involved popping the top off a bottle of Corona.  37 times.

Unless I’m having some sort of reading comprehension fail, Smith did not partake in the drinking or tipping. It seems according to his tweet that the boys had some fun and charged it to Smith’s room. Which makes it surprising the tip wasn’t bigger.
