On Going to the Bathroom at Work

I know she's Oprah and all, but forreal, wouldn't having people sing while you're pooping make it a billion times worse?

On It's Official, People Love Libraries

My local library's already dissatisfying hours got cut last month, so that it's now only open 4-6 hours a day, 4 days a week. It's pretty difficult to get there to pick up my holds, and browsing is definitely a thing of the past. It's really frustrating for me and disheartening that this is all they can fund.

On Oh, the Quirky Job Interview Question

At my very first job interview when I was 16, I was asked, "if you were a vegetable, which one would you be?" I laughed, almost walked out (because I was 16 and didn't really want to work there anyway), and then still got hired.

On Paying More Because You're Paying With a Credit Card

@stuffisthings yeah but who wants to use those? debit cards are the worst.

On Paying More Because You're Paying With a Credit Card

This feels like a really regressive move since /nobody/ carries cash anymore. And it's almost 2014 - why should we?

On Places I've Lived: Confederate Atlanta, Pre-Big One San Francisco, Dog Park NYC

@Ambrrr nice! I was looking over there and I considered a duplex on Monroe, but the kitchen was kind of gross. It seems like there are a bunch of great places over there if you can time it right.

On Places I've Lived: Confederate Atlanta, Pre-Big One San Francisco, Dog Park NYC

This is really interesting to me because I live in Atlanta and have been apartment hunting recently. Rent hasn't gone up around here nearly as much as I'd have expected in 15-20 years. My new place will be under $700 for my half of a 2bd place, which seems pretty average for safe, clean, washer dryer, and off-street parking (my necessities). If you're willing to sacrifice the laundry and maybe central a/c, it's pretty easy to find mid-90s rent.

On Single-cup Coffee, Tons of Garbage

@j a y The coffee I make at home is so much better than the coffee I make with the office Keurig, and I buy Target coffee (the free trade stuff is really good but I'm cheap and usually go with the regular kinds).

On We'll Never Get Tired With Talking About Tipping

@Blondsak not even that, but bringing the minimum wage for servers who make tips up to the actual minimum wage alone would be a big improvement.
