Little kids don't have difficulty when they're forgiven. I mean, when was the last time you heard a child refuse to be forgiven and let out of time out? They jump at the chance to receive forgiveness no matter what it is that they may have done.

When the check is brought to the table, your friend says, "It's on me." How many of you would put up a fight or at least insist on taking care of the tip?
