  1. Wow! He even tipped the staff, instead of uttering some bullshit excuse to disregard it, too.
    Man, I didn't realize the British were so polite and giving.

  2. Love the tension of waiting for the card to be accepted, that is a moment that always feels awkward in real life. But here it is ramped up to 100. Also just noticed that the close captioning for the opening music is [Awful Music.] That is a nice touch. Hilarious!
