Default you can always get what you want....

...anyway, MM and I were out tonight and I ran out of ciggies, asked nicely at the bar and they said 'No we don't have Esse menthol" I asked the bar manager where the nearest place was and he told me it was " round the corner, down the stairs and 7 blocks down" I gave him 6 dhs for the packet of ciggies and 20dhs as a tip if he could find somebody to get them. The guy at the table told me that there was no way I would get them. MM said "Stoli always gets what she wants.................. did I get the ciggies or not?

You give someone a tip (three times bigger than the cost of the item itself) to go and fetch something for you............?

Next time I'm in Dubai, I wonder if that will work for me............
