You know those people you go out with sometimes that totally tell you up front that they’re going to pay for the meal because they love you and they’re sorry that they never pay you back when you pay for them, and thanks for letting them crash on your couch for three weeks while they tried to find a new apartment that didn’t do a credit check and they’re sorry about that thing with the vomit and the carpet and oh, yeah, they totally wore your underwear the other day because they ran out and don’t worry they’ll wash them and give them back good as new?
Joe Biden is totally one of those people. Except for the underwear part. I don’t really know about that.
He entered the restaurant wearing an open neck white shirt, sleeves rolled up, dark slacks, and aviator sunglasses,” according to the pool report. “The crowd of about twenty folks included general patrons and a smattering of folks with Democratic Party affiliations of one kind or another.”
After placing himself under a “Free Beer Tomorrow” sign for a bit, Biden picked up his food–”a big piece of carrot cake … [and] “a couple of racks of ribs,” according to the owner–and proceeded to “[insist] on paying for the food.” But a curious thing happened: “An aide paid for the check, ‘about $30,’” according to the pooler.
At least he left a nice tip.
