As she doesn't show up anymore, you and your buddies start eating the peanuts. Suddenly, she shows up asking for $4, 5 or 6 dollars or EURO (or the equivalent currency in that country). As you thought was complimentary she starts creating a scene, saying she is hard working girl, half deaf, etc, while embarassing you in front of the other customers. You might hand her the money just to get away.
