    My only response to a statement like this is, "Why haven't you given money to your parents already, being a millionaire jet-setter and all?" After all, it was your parents who gave you the opportunity to be all that you are today.

    That would be a handout, and we know he does not like this or people who are willing to take them. If he gave his parents money, he would have to disown them. That would be just as bad as the woman who used him!
    Since light travels faster than sound, people appear bright until you hear them speak....and in every forum you will find at least one.

    When you critisize someone, walk a mile in his shoes first; then, if he gets mad, he'll be a mile away and barefoot.

    I bort my parents a house and a car each, to get them out of poverty and occasionally help them out, in appreciation for there help when I was a child. The only other charities I give to are concerned with the preservation of wild life, as animals are defenseless against human development and that's not there fault. Now I see no reason for working people who work in a hotel or eatery to lower there dignity and start begging off there customers for there charity dollar that is more deservedly spent in other areas.
    Yes that's right there just beggars, that also have a job, Now I thought begging was meant for the down and out that cannot find a Job.

    Since English is the official language of Australia, I will surely reply.

    The way this is written, it implies that, if Paul were so inclined, he would choose a different target for his charity. If he already gave, he should have stated that he only gives to his parents and environmental charities.

    One can't play fast and loose with the language and expect to be understood.

    Oh, what an experience! Did you take it back? If I were you, I would take it back & tell him "I will save it for myself & for better use!"

    I no longer tip when I go to the lavatory of fancy hotels. It took me some efforts to overcome the embarrassment while many others are doing it. But I just don't think it's reasonable to tip when all that lady does is just to hand my a towel. I tip when the service is really good in restaurants, message parlours or taxi drivers sometimes.
