The rarely-heard greetings made me feel special, but I wasn't the only one. After overhearing neighboring customers, I realized most, if not all, servers take good care of Kalico's patrons.

Wrong again..LOL
My only point was that you used the word required to describe tipping and then when you are corrected you revert to your old game of saying that people don't understand what you post.......LOL
Yes we all know that you were wrong when you said that tipping is required.....
Once again....Oh my god, still you cannot adress the point. Whether or not you agree with my word choice is NOT, I repeat, NOT, the point. I already provided you with definitions of the word required in which it is used as a synonymous with expected, custumary, etc.

Or how about this from wikipedia. a tip is not required by law but ".... failing to give an adequate tip when one is expected is a serious faux pas, and may be considered very miserly, a violation of etiquette, or unethical." In other words you could say a tip is required by custom or ettiquette unless the service is bad, but not by law.

Nevertheless, the use of the word "required" is not the issue. As is your usual pattern you have bogged this conversation down in a whole bunch of semantic nonsense that has nothing to do with the point at hand.

"In the U.S. is a tip is required by custom, or by etiquette, as long as the service is good, though it is not required by law."

See Dumbass?

Now drop the semantic B.S. and comment on the actual point or don't.

Are you really going to argue that words only have one definition rather than various shades of meaning and thus various definitions? Look at a dictionary for christ's sake, just about every word in there has more than one definition. I also provided you with two definitions of "required" that support my point. You conveniently ignored those.

Are you really trying to argue that you are completely unaware of the fact that a thing can be "required by custom though not by law"?

"Custom requires that you bow to royality though no law is broken if you do not". Do you not recognize that as a perfectly acceptable use of the word in question?

Do you realize how anoyingly dumb you are?

I gave you a quote from the business dictionary..........LOL

Something that is required is enforceable.....

Show me anything that is required that can not be enforced.....

That is the definition of required.........Something that is mandated or smoothing that you are forced or required to do.........LOL

Customs never require anything......

In Thailand you are required to not step on a pice of money at any time for any reason.
You are also required to bow to the king.
Violating either of these will find you in jail.....

Are you now going to tell us how it is ok to step on money in Thailand???.......LOL

Here are some definitions of the word required....LOL
Not that all of them refer to something that is not negotiable therefore it is required.......
(unlike tipping that is never required)

requiredpast participle, past tense of re·quire (Verb)
Verb:
Need for a particular purpose; depend on for success or survival.
Cause to be necessary.

Unchangeable,necessitate or non wavering.........

compulsory, mandatory, required
obligatory (vs. optional)

needed, required, requisite
necessary (vs. unnecessary)

So please tell us how tipping in a restaurant fits into any of theses definitions..........LOL

This is not about tipping.
It's about the Castaldo empire and all the illegal beaners he has working for him.

Correct.....

But the moron liberal keeps going back to his misspoken statement that tips are required in restaurants when any normal person understands they are optional..........

On the same subject.....

Last Friday Jalisco state police busted the PEACE organization that spays and neuters stray animals for having Americans and Canadians volunteering without the proper documents.

Five people were picked up Friday and taken to jail and then sent home on airplanes today....

These people had entered Mexico legally but did not have the proper documents to work.
Yes even working for free is considered work here....LOL

Now the corporation PEACE may be dissolved as they have no assets because the hired legal immigrants without the legal right to work in Mexico.......

Now if only the USA would adopt a strategy like this all criminal invaders would be taking the next bus home.......

Oh my god! You have got to be the biggest idiot on the entire internet. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER OR NOT YOU AGREE WITH THE WAY I USED THE WORD "REQUIRED. PERIOD. MY POINT WAS NOT ABOUT THE WORD "REQUIRED", SUBSTITUTE IT WITH "CUSTOMARY" OR "EXPECTED" IF YOU MUST BUT RESPOND TO MY POINT OR DON'T RESPOND AT ALL.

Do you realize that this is your M.O.? That you derail every thread into some inane arguement about some irrelevant semantic point (like the propper use of the word "required") that has nothing to do with anyone's actual point?

Doesn't that fact embarass you?

And don't lecture me about the propper use of words, you know nothing about it, that much is clear to everyone. Enforcability is absolutely not a requirement of the word "required" you idiot. For example, "etiquette REQUIRES, in certain circles, that you put your napkin in your lap, but of course that is not enforceable because it is not a matter of law bur rather of custom". There are literally thousands of other equally good examples.

But really little man. This is not about the propper meaning of the word "required" at all. Why do you derail every conversation?

Oh god you loser, anyone with a brain, perhaps even angry American can go back and see where this thread went awry. Ruth made the comment about 'greasy spoons' and tips. I pointed out that it doesn't matter if it is a greasy spoon or any other kind of restaurant that waits on you when it comes to tips, and then you derailed the entire conversaition by starting a big debate about the propper usuage of the word "required" in that sentence. YOu are wrong about that but for the sake of arguement, lets say you were right, what difference does it make if the word was used propperly or not? my point was understandable either way and you are not anyone's English teacher are you? You just go off on tangents because you have nothing of value to add.

And yet you blame me for derailing the conversation....what a tool.

Wrong again my little sheepole.....LOL

You stated that tipping is required.......

I pointed out how you were wrong,,,,,,

And then you derailed the conversation by trying to prove that tipping is required and defending your use of the word...

Now any normal person with half of a brain would have just admitted that they used the wrong term....

But not the famous rod arse.........>LOL

You defended your use of the term.....

The conversation would have been over in my response to you showing that tipping is not required...

But you felt some need to defend the use of the word instead of just admitting that you were wrong.....

Just like you did on disrupting the national anthem in Mexico.

And just like you did when I posted about oslama the economy slayer suing Citibank to force them to give loans to people that could not possibly ever pay back the loan......

Now everyone knows that tipping is not required and you were wrong in stating that tipping is required......LOL

But the point was, to ruth's point, that there is no difference between "greasy spoons' or any other type of restaurant when it comes to tipping. you are supposed to tip at all of them unless the service is bad......the word required had nothing to do with the pont! Sustitute the word "custormary" or "expected" if it bothers you so much. It is besides the point! the point was understandable to normal people either way (apperantly just not you, becuase you focussed on one word and missed the entire point).

Like I said, I think you are wrong about the word usage in this case and I think I demonstrated that but it NEVER had anything to do with the point. whether or not I properly used the word "required" or not, was always, ALWAYS, beside the point.

Why don't you get that simple fact?

I never had a problem with that....LOL

My only point was that you are wrong again when it comes to tipping being required.........

Too bad you are not man enough to just admit you made a mistake..........LOL

Next you will be telling us how it is legal to disrupt the national anthem in mexico.....LOL

Forget about required if it bothers you so much.....substitute "customary" or "expected" if that suits you better, but stop dragging this conversation into a tangent about the proper use of the word "required for christ's sake!

The greasy spoons "restaurants" are not healthy places to consume food despite the fact that the employees are kind to their patrons.
