On My Summer As a Housekeeper

This isnt going to be popular, but I don't tip people for doing their job. I don't tip baristas for doing their job of making me coffee, don't tip the grocery check out lady, or the person who pumps my gas (I live in OR). And yes, I have had my share of min wage jobs while working my way thru uni...as a housekeeper at Holiday Inn, movie theatre cashier/candy girl, restaurant bus person ...and the worst? Working at a dry cleaners during the very hot southern summer.

On AirBnb Ruined Our Lives and Turned Us Into Entitled City Dwellers

@flossy Seriously. Part time jobs, either living or wanting to live off the govt, yet choosing to live in a place that rents for $3800. That alone sounds entitled. If you really, truly want a job, move to where they are. Unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in 6 years. Jobs are there, just maybe not in hipster neighborhoods.

A student (or anyone) has 25 pairs? That seems like a lot to me.
