YOU PAID $80 FOR A GARBAGE PAIL!? DOES IT TURN THAT GARBAGE INTO DINNER!? Also: what is a work bench?
I don't know, I think this is kind of cheesy. I'm a long time restaurant worker, and I feel like it falls onto the proprietor of the business to make sure the kitchen gets a fair tip-out, not on the generosity of the guests. I also highly doubt this is a literal six-pack. It's most likely just a tip.
@peacheater Because welfare queens and hoodlums were buying and selling all the collateralized debt obligations and credit default swaps, obviously. You could hardly walk down the street in East Baltimore in 2006 without stepping on all the used prospectuses littering sidewalks. I'm talking literal open-air derivatives markets right on old ladies' stoops.
I've worked at a million restaurants and the thing about the watcher pitchers isn't really true. It's definitely possible that they are not washed between table to table (which, I don't know, isn't that gross to me?), but I guarantee they are washed at the end of service. I always forget that some people really fucking hate waiting tables. I loved it!
@swirrlygrrl -Are you in the market for a wife? *chic noir bats eyelashes seductively*
Get sick, spend a month in the Hospitol and just write a check to pay the bill. Or Have a few kids put in private school grades k-12 and pay for their college education via check Or Have enough money to live well for at least 10 years.
@honey cowl Yes, this is a non-serious post written in jest (although we should all make an attempt to get fake white beards and pretend to be senior citizens to get movie theater discounts). Matt also wrote a fun, non-serious listicle about questionable theater plot twists for The Hairpin yesterday.
But to address the concern here: I've talked plenty about IRAs and savings tips and all that nitty gritty stuff before, and am sure to continue talking about all of that in the future and beyond. There are days when we have non-serious pieces like this one and yesterday's Shark Tank recap. There are days when we have very serious pieces, like interviews with a labor journalist, or a look at the personal finance industrial complex, or yesterday's conversation with a person living on $15,000. The goal is and always has been to have a balance of both.
There are plenty of local businesses that offer both free wifi and nice bathrooms. I hate, hate, hate anecdotal evidence so much! His entire story is "I went to one local store and they didn't have a bathroom and then I went to a coffee shop and they didn't have a free wifi." SUCH TERRIBLE LAZY WRITING AND THINKING. Not to mention that I think it's problematic to assume that "locally-owned" means anything.
I have been told you really shouldn't follow up until a little after whenever they told you the timeframe would be for the next step (which you asked about at the end of the interview). And also, this is a post on a website where we talk about jobs and finances. It doesn't list any last names or give details about the job. I think this is a pretty normal level of freaking out and indecision in a job search process, especially if Bobbie is in his or her twenties. The lack of capitalization or full spellings is clearly an editorial choice (Logan is doing the same thing, it is consistent throughout the post) and should not make anyone concerned about this individual's ability to write professionally.
Some of this is totally inaccurate though-I always used mapquest in 2000 to print out directions, and I was booking a lot of flights and hotels-all done via the internet (mostly priceline.com, which was AMAZING back then).
