I'm moved and sad like everyone else, but $12 seems like a lot for copying keys, no?
Love the part about how healthy he is, right after the part about how he blacks out all the time, including while driving! Very fun pizza guy, indeed.
Okay I understand not wanting to name names, but I am DYING to see the Iranian music video. Don't leave us hanging, man!
@Allison UMMMMM I really want to take a test with long division by hand problems. That sounds so fucking fun.
NFL (No Food Left) I am straight dyin' here!!!
@cmcm I'm conflicted about this one, too. I think it's kind of tacky for the business to do that. It reminds me of a similar situation where I was at a shitty cafe and asked for tomato and cucumber on my bagel and cream cheese. I was sitting there eating it when the gal came out from behind the register and was like "uh, my manager said I was supposed to charge you 50 cents for the veggies" and I just thought it was SO unnecessary! I paid, but I never went back. So, you're not a bad person, and I agree that the business should have eaten the difference and moved on.
@hellonheels I was kinda bummed about that, too (assuming you're taking about Chow at Church and Market). But there are three (3!) mom and pop taquerias at that intersection, so I sort of see both sides.
@laluchita right, I totally know my experience is unique. I've worked in states where I made $2.13/hr, and I had an employer complain about (and refuse to pay!) overtime wages at that rate. It is flat-out absurd. I think servers should be paid AT LEAST their state minimum wage, plus gratuity. I just don't think we should get rid of gratuity, that's all.
@EM yes, if I wasn't clear, I will most likely give cigarettes to panhandlers. I won't give it to just some schmuck at a bar who just wants one out of the blue.
@deepomega That's a number based on revenue, and it's true that industry standard for restaurants is that labor be 20-30%. We usually meet that goal, and it's how we determine staffing. The 59% I came up with was our operating costs (which doesn't really have much to do with revenue) vs. our payroll costs.
