Who's gonna pay?

Who's gonna pay?

We welcomed many guests, from the north, to our Florida home during our winter retreat this year. And because of a miscommunication between Mark and I, we had an overlap on one such visit; The more the merrier, as the saying goes.

We all, Leigh, Karen, Katie, Mark, Tammy, Diane and I, went to lunch at
Farlow's. At the end of a pleasant meal and the bill is presented, Mark asks our waitress to give him the bill. Leigh insists that he wants to pay. Having been in this position many times with Leigh, I explain to Mark how upset Leigh gets when he's not allowed to pay.

While Leigh is completing the transaction with our waitress, (a former professional body builder) he relates to us a story about a time Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wilt Chamberlain, and Andre the giant were having dinner in Mexico City after making a movie, Conan the Destroyer.

Arnold, knowing how generous Andre was, made arrangements with their waiter to take Arnold's credit card before dinner and to not accept Andre's. When Andre discovered that Arnold had paid he went over to Arnold and picked him up out of his chair and said "I always pay!"
