So my two questions, can I take more straws then cups?
I go to a 7-11 where they hand out straws at the register, and although they always give one per slurpee, they will give extra if you ask.

All jokes aside I'm sure many taste the grapes before buying.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

In most stores I buy it in, if in facts it's not sweet and tasty I'll be returning it.
 Let them weight it again when returning to see what I ate and give me the difference from what I ate to what I returned.
   One problem is when buying a bunch of grapes that taste good I won't be paying for the 2 grapes I tasted.

I still don't see a reason why tasting them should be allowed.

Even though it's likely that the manager would let you taste it if you seriously want to buy grapes you still have to ask before.

To tell you the truth I never really thought about it, I did it because that's what I saw when growing up and went shopping for grapes.
  When it comes to grapes where it's a cluster of fifty to a hundred grapes I taste one to know if I should buy the whole cluster or if I should take only half the cluster, by tasting one of the grapes. Now in regards to an apple an orange a lemon and onion each apple each lemon is its own thing, so in that scenario there's not what to taste.
   and believe it or not when it came to cherries just like the grapes when it's an open bag and it's made for people to touch and taste I did the same thing before buying a bag of (Cherries).

  Now in regards to strawberries blueberries and all the berries which came in a container and it was closed I wouldn't open it, it's only where the bags were open and where they would assume customers would go ahead and taste the product before buying that's where I went ahead and tasted, as that's the reason why they leave it open for people to go ahead and taste.

Since no one else "tastes" grapes before buying them, then don't assume that the store owners give permission to do so.

Cherries? What does tasting one tell you about the rest of the bag? Grapes are at least one cluster.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

They count occupied seats I believe.
Actually, they count the meals that leave the kitchen. So if you take a second main course the Baal simcha will pay for it.
