"A friend of mine's dad..."

The way you wrote it would be correct (but a bit awkward) as "One of my friend's dad...", leaving off the s, as dad in this case is neither possessive nor plural. I seems like it should be plural to match "friend's", but "friend's" is sounding plural while acting possessive.

I would have written, "My friend's dad...", because it doesn't really need the qualifier that the dad is the father of one of many friends.

Kind of a case where spoken English doesn't transfer well to written English.


He could've said "one of my friendies daddies"

In a diamond lounge do I need to tip based on cost of the drink?

If that's the case you should just 86 yourself from the Dimond lounge.


Just curiouse, what do you tip on your handpays?

Was doing $5 per $1000. Now down to $10-20 max. $5 on $2K or less. I'd go higher if slot attendants had any juice locally but they don't and the slot supervisors can't accept tips AFAIK I need to check on that.

I was going to go with $1-2 per drink in diamond lounge when I go there in a week. Hopefully it will be celebratory after I win the $1,000,000 first place in the TournEvent on Oct 4.
