Memo to young women in bars:

I understand that you just graduated from school, and probably can't really afford to be out Saturday night paying $12 each for blood orange margaritas.  You're on your own in the big city now, and you and your girls are all dressed up, so I get why you don't want to go to the same old divey college bars and drink $3 Miller Lites.  It doesn't even bother me that you don't have any cash and have to charge all your drinks on your credit card (regardless of whether it's you or daddy who pays the bill).  But what I can't figure out is this: There's four of you.  You're going to have at least four drinks tonight.  Why do you all have to pay for just your own drink on your card each time?  I'm going to let you in on something that grownups do; it's called "buying rounds."  First you find out what your friends would like, then you buy all of the drinks at once.  This way you don't have to pay anymore until it's your turn again.  Trust me, it's way easier.
