I could go on against tipping, but let’s leave it at this: it is irrational, outdated, ineffective, confusing, prone to abuse and sometimes discriminatory. The people who take care of us in restaurants deserve a better system, and so do we.

Terrible Tipper of the Day: Twitter @FutureExBanker says (by way of Eater): “my jerk boss tips exactly 1%” because he loathes the 99%.” He also apparently felt the need to tell True Food Kitchen server Breanna to “get a real job.”

Reprint the slip, give yourself a $50 tip and then write “GREAT SERVICE!” Force that asshole to have to sit on hold with his credit card company to dispute the charge, and maybe next time he’ll realize that it’s just easier to tip 20 percent.

Kings of Leon | Use Somebody

I will never get sick of this song. NEVER!

Well, then you should come work at the country club with me because I heard this song THREE times today in the span of a six-hour shift.

But just to be crystal clear: Yes, this tune is highly preferrable to any of those three Bon Jovi songs Applebee’s played to death. I still believe being subjected to that dreck on a daily basis qualifies as grounds for a lawsuit.

  • Him: You still talk to anybody from [place we used to work together]?
  • Me: Not really.
  • Him: Yeah, I'm a family man now.
  • Me: Yeah ... so should I text you Sunday about getting me that quad?
  • Him: Totally.
