5. Be assertive.

"No, see? It says right here it's ladies' night. They're not supposed to pay. That's just good business—also you are wrong because my wig looks ill as hell."

"I don't really want to do any shots, but if I do one will it be fine to stick with beer for the rest of the night?" or "Eh, I'm not really up for a twerk, but how do you feel about schmoney dance?"
