practicing the theory of putting theory into practice, in practice

I've been frustrated many times in my life with friends who, craving rationality and logic in their lives, make choices based on logical deductions they perform on what is actually a simplified model of the life situation rather than the reality they're standing in.

And the difference often does hinge on cooperative behavior being necessary to achieve some goal, especially when that goal could be achieved without it in theory but not in practice.

Consider: the optimal strategy for receiving and enjoying good service in a full-service restaurant. (It sure would be interesting if all of the subtleties of that scenario were printed somewhere on the menu!)
