Don't think that's been discussed on here before.

I wouldn't waste my time because on a $50 bill for me and Mrs MH at Longhorn it would make a massive 60 cents difference.

Agree, I also canít see that it makes much difference and we tip what we feel is appropriate anyway. I donít understand the strong feelings on it.

At a rough guess based on absolutely no evidence whatsoever (honest guv ), I suspect a discussion on whether people tip pre- or post-tax will only rumble on for around 8 days.

OK then - it may have been discussed before. What about a poll on when old age starts?

My vote is at 73.

Depends on what the majority of DIBBers vote for. 89.87% of them may vote for 55, 60 or 65, with only 4 votes for 90, and the average age that is considered to be old might be calculated as 57.5.

This is now getting into means, averages, upper decile and median quartile territory now. Too much for someone who passed his "O" level maths in 1962 and left school at 16.
