    Wow looks like this is a common tactic employed by these establishments! I am the latest in a long line of fools.

    Just dont get drunk, its very easy to control what you drink.
    How many teenagers does it take to get a basket of shopping from a Supermarket ?

    I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box, but it's beginning to occur to me that somebody is just posting the same imaginary scenario over and over with slightly edited details. :p

    I've never got so insanely drunk I would not know what I was "purchasing" or for how much I must be so boring.

    How much of that £1500 do you think the women got?

    Assuming they're self-employed, probably about half, taken away the card processing fees, VAT, and the "house" fee - or whatever it's called, the fee/commission paid to the strip club in order to work there.

    Then that income has to be declared to the tax man, so take away a bit more tax, plus NI, though any expenses incurred doing that job can be offset.


    For £1,500, I would've expect a dance for 225 minutes (3.75 hours), assuming that £20 would give a 3-minute dance (usually for one song). You could halve that 225 minutes if you had two girls dancing for you at the same time though (just saying!)

    I bet you haven't left your card unattended when friends of friends are around your and they transfer money form your account to an account on a casino website (per the other athread involving money and getting drunk).

    No never! ;) I don't gamble anyway, but no, it would be like leaving all your store accounts open with card details logged in. Never been that drunk, no :p

    Or maybe that this sort of thing really does happen at these sort of places...
