Re: What exactly does \"time\" mean?

Re: How long do I withhold tips? Dealer mistake costs me $1800. (long)

This is childish, and are just trying to place blame for your loss. Yes the dealer made a mistake, but it made no difference at all in the situation, if you are a 'professional' as you claim. ...
