It kind of gives you the feeling of what kind of customers they are going to be. When you get big crowds and somebody doesn’t want to pay one $4 fee, they’re going to be kind of cheap customers. … In more instances, though, it’s working against us, especially when we get conventions in town. Out-of-towners for some reason think we’re pulling the wool over their eyes. People come in, they sit down and you start to explain it to them, they get up and walk out.
