On In Australia, We Don't Worry So Much About Our Student Debt

not to mention that if you pay your tuition as you go each semester, you get an immediate 20% discount - my bachelor's degree was only about $2000 a semester over three years. though, my parents paid for my education - they really wanted to give me an amazing debt-free start because when they were at uni in the 70s everything was *free*. reading student debt issues on this site has made me appreciate anew how fortunate we are to live in this country!

On On Leaving Too Much

@xxAnniexx it is amazing. and uncomplicated. generally speaking, we really only tip in nice restaurants or to say "thanks for helping to make my evening particularly enjoyable" or "keep the coins I don't wanna jangle". it's appreciated, but not expected, and you're not screwing anyone if you don't tip.

On Howdy, Neighbors

Mike, I bet your parents sometimes high five each other for having created such a decent person. (Sidenote: I bet your neighbours think it's you smoking pot. "He writes on the internet: You wonder if he even has a job.")

On Too Busy To Wash Your Hair

@redheaded&crazy totally. in my experience observing the small sample of Dudes Or Short-Haired Ladies I Have Lived With, there is a big difference between the time investment for short-hair-washing, and my routine of shampoo-condition-airdry-blowdry-straighten to tame the big old mess sitting atop my scalp. if it's day 4 and I'm feeling lazy, dry shampoo is my jam.
