I don't understand why Amex wouldn't be involved. If I don't pay my mastercard bill it's mastercard that comes after me, not the stores that I shop at.

It's a good question.

Back when I was with AT&T, AP actually paid your corporate card.  The onus was then on you to file your expenses to reconcile the charges after AMEX got already got paid by AT&T.  (THOSE days are long gone.)

I don't have a corporate card with Oracle, but we have to pay that bill.  Then we get reimbursed after filing our expenses.  So shouldn't they be suing this guy?  He's on the hook for the charges regardless of whether Oracle reimburses him or not.

There must be more to this story.

Amex is involved as Oracle disputed the charges as you cannot use Amex to pay for illegal acts unless you are a bank.

Nobody discussing the amount of entertainment he must have gotten for a pair of $15,000+ nights? Most places you could have a pretty good night for $500, let alone 30 times that much.

Oracle employee is likely now claiming that "the card was stolen", therefore they shouldn't be responsible for the charges.

I just want to know what the big deal is with Java; unfortunately I got shunted into the VB class so haven't learned it yet, but my lab partners swear by it. Then my BIL the big web developer sneers at it. I don't understand either side.

Well, it can be run in many different environments/OSes. Probably the biggest thing is Enterprise Java. Many businesses write their web-based apps in it and the Java code runs on the server side on a web/application server like Tomcat or Websphere. It's probably almost as easy to learn as VB and fairly easy to maintain. Of course, you have to understand how OO works pretty thoroughly or it might be tough. Disclaimer: It's what I have done for a living for the past 15 years.

San Francisco is fairly notorious for turning a blind eye to the city's many active brothels. The New Century Theater is less a strip club and more a sex buffet.

That would explain the $33k. If you assume a lap dance is $20, and the lap dance lasts for 3 minutes, $33,000 would buy you 82.5 continuous hours of non-stop lap dance.  Strip clubs are expensive, and people can certainly run through a lot of cash at them, but $33k is outrageous.

Now, $33k for various -ways and -jobs?  That I can easily believe.

If he spent that much on lapdances and no sex, or if he did actually get some sex, two nights worth isn't worth $33k. Either way it makes him the trickiest trick that ever tricked.

C'mon guys. These aren't some dumpy single moms you find in the strip club next to the interstate truck stop. This is top shelf poon. Of course it's gonna be more expensive.

This is a full nudity strip club, so the strippers wouldn't have beer goggles to hide behind.

SF strip clubs are in general two or three steps below what most people find acceptable, but New Century might just be the worst of them all.  It's in the Tenderloin, but its not so much a "successful and attractive" clientele (though its that, too) as it is a "homeless and drug-addicted" clientele.  And given all this, the girls there look exactly as you'd expect them to.  Which is to say, not good.

HMS_Blinkin: If you assume a lap dance is $20


Wait. Wait. Hold on. For all these years I've been staying away from strip clubs because they always sounded so expensive. Raining fistfuls of singles down on biatches. A hundred dollars a lapdance. shiat like that. If I can go into a decent club and get $20 lapdances, well, shiat, I know what I'm doing with my next vacation.
 
2013-09-25 05:12:56 AM
I don't understand lapdances. 20 bucks a song to get dryhumped ? I mean, I do like getting dry-humped, but 20 bucks every 20 minutes ? Who on Earth thinks it's worth it, even if they've got the money ?

Why is the strip club out the money? I thought disputes were between AmEx and the cardholder (and possibly law enforcement).

This, sadly. "Bottle service", "VIP" perks, and so on are an ideal way to run up a large tab, especially if you're attempting to show off at a convention.

Yep. i was once with a crew in Vegas, and we had finished off a $300 or so bottle of champagne (there were 7 of us), and we ordered another one. My buddy said "another.......please" with the ellipses being the brand name of the bottle we had just finished. Waitress brings us out a different bottle (but the same brand name), except instead of $300, this bottle cost $2500. When we ordered our 3rd bottle, the waitress did the exact same thing.

We raised holy hell when we got our bill and saw what was happening, and the manager told us all to go fark ourselves and instructed the bouncers to escort us to the sidewalk. Luckily, one of the guys in the group was a law talking guy, and he started busting out some serious legal jargon concerning fraud and blah blah this and we would sue the shiat out of them, and only then did he agree to repeal the charges. This poor Oracle employee may have been taken under similar circumstances.

The point is, a lot of strip clubs aren't the bastion of integrity and morals that you may have been led to believe. They're not quite as bad as Directv, of course, but they're close.

I can attest to this firsthand. I've experienced DirecTV and numerous strip clubs in my time.
