Mensagem:  Come on in this case means "you don't really expect me to accept this?" or "do you really think this is honest?" and the waiter or salesperson is supposed to "come along to your way of thinking" and reduce the amount of money due. If I'm dating a girl and ask her for a kiss she might say, "Come on! You know I'm not that kind of girl." Which means, "Hey Buddy, beter rethink your position. This is our first date and nice girls don't kiss on the first date." "Come on" means to stop and think of what impact the thing you are doing has on the other. "Hey, this food is too expensive." "I didn't know we had to pay for those little ovos de cadorno." Things like that, Tom
