This once happened to me at the airport when I was trying to check a bag. I had one of those temporary cards that banks give when you open the account and then you're supposed to get your real card. The time period for the temp card had passed and it wasn't going through, and the woman behind the counter told me just go ahead and leave the bag.
@chic noir haha I didn’t have any experience either but the restaurant I applied to had a string of bad experiences with their dishwashers. When they saw me were basically like, “You don’t look like an alcoholic”. I was twenty and in school studying. They told me that the previous dishwasher kept taking nips on the job and I asked what a nip was. I haven’t read that but I’ll check it out.
Being a dishwasher was the most physically demanding job I've ever had. But I also think that as a dishwasher you get to know the kitchen better than anyone. In fact, most chefs I know started out as dishwashers.
So I worked BOH for awhile and never got tipped out. Even when it was extremely busy. And now that I'm not working in restaurants anymore I hear about FOH people tipping out the cooks and dishwashers all the time. Has that always been a thing? Did I just get screwed?
@Jinxie Yes. Cheese. Fancy cheese.
I've been complaining for YEARS about college students who come from well off families who feel enough misguided privilege guilt to feel justified in stealing cheese from the grocery store. It's such a thing! And they all give the same hackneyed reasons, "It's just a cooperation! It doesn't matter!" and I'm always like, "Your parents pay for your rent wtf are you doing stealing cheese?". I hate it. I hate it so much.
I was a child in 2000 and articles like this sound really dated to me. Like, why are people still talking about how technology progresses rapidly? Is there even a point to them beyond, "Whoa"?Also, I've never actually known a group a people to just stare at their phones instead of having a conversation with each other.
The question in the picture above reminds me of how much of a nightmare Valentine’s day was for me as a kid. My parents never took me out to buy cards and candy to give out to the class. One year I made Valentine’s day cards to give out just to be told by the other kids in the class there was no point to give a card unless you were also give candy :/ As for the question at hand, I'd probably send me kid to the birthday without a present. I think most kids aren't like Dudley Dursley and could deal with not getting a present from every guest.
@BillfoldMonkey Ugh that's the most disturbingly spot on comment I've ever read.
@Michelle Why does that make it hard to sympathize with him?
