Ok, so I was just listening to the radio and I have to share this story with you guys. I couldn't find anything on google, but if anyone finds an article please link it.

So this 24-year-old kid graduates college and his dad wants to do something nice for him. So his dad gives him the credit card and basically says "Have fun!" A pretty cool fatherly thing to do imo. It's a nice gesture. A "Take the boys out for a night on the town. You've earned it." kind of thing. Anyways, the guys go out to a bar. And soon the kid starts ordering champaign for everyone. He says, "A bottle of your finest!" or something to that extent. After the night is through they have ordered 19 bottles of champaign. What the kid didn't bother to ask though was the price. I'll let you guess how much it was per bottle. Don't peak. Guess now.

For that much, it'd better come with a handjob.

No WAY. I guessed the right amount! I even guessed in dollars!

That is excellent. What an idiot!

That's really retarded. You could get much better alcohol for much cheaper if you were smarter.

Epic self-ether to him.

uh...champagne is always really expensive unless you just want soda.

2500 though, I wouldn't even expect 19 bottles to exist in a single restaurant.

also link or it didn't happen.

edit: oh you said as much.

Seriously, what steel said: If they have 19 bottles of the shit then it shouldn't cost $2500 a bottle unless they own a winery or something. If I was that kid I'd go and burn the place down using molotov cocktails made using the empty champagne bottles (not really but the police would never make the connection; it is a perfect crime).

i didn't say that at all jesus christ.

i was just saying they are probably a little negligent in allowing 19 bottles of champagne priced that highly to go out to a single customer without knowing for sure they weren't joking around.

For those interested I just saw the story on Bill O'Reilly (God I hate that cuntbag with his cheeky little slogan 'the spin stops here.' Fuck I'm mad at him now). Apparently the bottles varied in price from $500 to $2500. Also there are mixed reports about how drunk he was.

okay that makes more sense and makes the negligence a little more...negligible. if it's varied bottles they might assume it's a highroller instead of questioning why 19 bottles that are 2500 dollars each are being thrown out at once.

also yes believe it or not most restaurants don't store more than a few bottles of 2500 dollar champagne, even if they are a rich restaurant. most people order glasses, not entire bottles.

but if polygon is right then w/e not as surprising.

The kid's a bit naive if he thinks he can order champagne without asking for the price. I guess that was the first time he ever did that. You're always going to get ripped off no matter where you are if you don't ask for the price first.

There are expensive places to eat here in Rotterdam due to it being an important city, and they certainly do have this kind of champagne in stock, since businessmen regularly come by to celebrate new deals. Those places have wines that go into the hundreds per bottle, so what did he really expect a good restaurant's "finest champagne" to cost?

i don't understand how you can graduate college and still be this fucking ignorant about the price of alcohols

what's sad is that the parents probably can afford to pay for this. i've never eaten in a restaurant and seen a bottle of champagne for more than a couple hundred bucks. must have been an extraordinarily upscale place. and nobody takes daddy's credit card to a place that they don't think daddy can realistically pay for(unless they hate daddy a lot). buying that many bottles of champagne in a restaurant like that, they had to expect they'd be dishing out a couple grand at least. and then there's this.

Quote
The kid spent a whopping $47,500 on champaign, coupled with the expenses for the rest of the night the total was around $53,000CDN.

that's still five and half grand on OTHER STUFF ALONE, which is still fucking absurd. makes you think PFFFT ASSHOLES DESERVED IT


but still, i seriously doubt this story is true.
also link or it didn't happen.
yeah, it just reeks of urban legend

ps dangerousned why do they call you dangerousned is it because you a fan of ned holness?

By the way, with all of you referring to the guy as 'kid', I'm wondering how old members of GW actually are.

If they have over $50,000 worth of credit on the card, then they can certainly afford to pay it off. I'm not exactly pitying anyone here.

Those who can, pay. Those who can't, delay.

Oh wait, I get it, you meant that my post was too violent! See, I thought you meant I was agreeing with the wrong thing! Ok, no, I would never really burn down a restaurant and it was only the irony I was concerned with in my post! My bad, though, now I see where you're coming from. I think.

If they have over $50,000 worth of credit on the card, then they can certainly afford to pay it off. I'm not exactly pitying anyone here.

I don't really think that's true. I have great credit and could probably hold at least $20k if I went out an got a credit card (I believe my current cards have $10k; I suppose I should really know something like that!) but there is no way I could afford to pay off $20k all at once if for some strange reason I decided I needed to max out my card. I'd be working it off for many months, and if I had to pay rent and buy food and shit it'd be a different matter. Maybe the dad has a mortgage to pay off and other kids to put through school and doesn't have fifty thousand dollars lying around, but since he has never done anything this stupid before he wasn't worried about his high limit.

I think this kid was just trying to emulate the famous adage "Give me a bottle of your finest champagne!" to look good in front of his friends, and then just rolled with it. To be honest, I'd be super pissed if I had to pay for one $2500 bottle of anything, nevermind 19 bottles of the stuff. Then again, I'm not a college graduate so what do I know? Seriously, about what Hundley said; it's possible he was just so used to buying bottom-barrel liquor to get he and his friends drunk that he was unaware such a thing as $2500 champagne. There is no real excuse for not checking how much something can cost, especially when you're throwing away someone you care about's money.
