There is a big difference between expecting someone to buy you a drink for nothing and buying someone a drink and expecting something.

If only human motives were that easy to decipher. Sometimes it's not a binary choice. Life's complicated.

Ah, it seems you are still mislead. Whether or not rich people have drinks bought for them was not the topic of this forum and the digital age seems to have proven everything has a binary representation,

Evidently, TV software thought you may again lose track of what was said if it didn't show you twice.

I just assumed it thought I was an ignoramus like most members

Many years ago when I used to drink in Washington Square you could tell which bars had a party on that night. And sure as eggs is eggs there would be people there who you only ever saw at other bars where there was a party going on enjoying themselves at somebody elses expense.

 

They would also be around the bars on a darts night for the free food.

Yeah, that fairly well describes the English teachers around here. A bar will throw a party and have free food; teachers who seldom frequent the bar will pack the place and are the first and last to attack the free food.

Some "campanologists" are like that here.

Will I get two posts for the price of one?

Loads of freeloaders around. Plenty on Pattaya. Was sat with friends 6 of us around a table in bar. Suddenly noticed a guy sat at the very next table telling the waitress to put the chit for his drinks in our pot. Needless to say it didn't go in and on looking through bin noticed he had slipped in two more which he promptly got back.

Nothing surprising in that.   For a few year I drank regularly in a bar in Hong Kong and could drink as many standard drinks or shots as I wanted (including buying drinks for other people), yet not pay for them as I had a deal with the bar owners that I would bring people in.   

Celebrities don't pay for the clothes and jewelry they wear to gala events, it's all paid for by the designers to get media attention.

Yes, it is unbelievable how cheap some people can be. A friend of mine opened a little bar and grille and offered good food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Many on-the-cheap expats frequented the place; some brought their own bottles of spirits, Thai-style. Then, would smuggle in their own mixers and even ask for glasses of ice, rather than paying for a bucket.  The killer was when they started bringing in food off the street and just using his music, a/c, tables and chairs, toilet facilities and condiments.

Well if you skip your round you'd better be a good storyteller. I can accept a freeloader who's entertaining.
