    It's always a bit of fun to twist the knife a little deeper into the ignorant guy (in this case, me).

    Re: W.H. makes CEOs pay for lunch

    The White House did not say what was served for lunch or how much the attendees were charged
    That sucks,I want to know what was served and what they were charged.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    My dislike of CEO's overrules my love of etiquette in this instance tho
    It's a symptom class warfare IMO. But most of all it's just tacky from a tacky president tacky enough to give a blockbuster gift card* to GB's prime minister.

    I would feel entitled to a few plates of the Lincoln china if I had to pay. And the royal salt shakers.

    They weren't there for a social visit, they were there for a business conference.

    Is it just me, or does this just absolutely scream "Jimmy Carter"?
    I would prefer that the WH not discriminate between the haves and the have nots. If the CEO's need to pay for thier lunch then the screaming professor and the cop with the arresting habit should have paid for thier pretzels and beer. -lol hic

    Manners are, if anything, more important in business than they are in social occasions.

    I have won projects because my competition was rude. I have lost out on projects because of the occasional faux pas.

    Just because the discussion was commerce and not the sorry state of the Washington Nationals does not render basic etiquette irrelevant.
