That indeed seems like a vicious cycle D:
Alright then, I'll have to remember that.

Wow okay. I was being nosy and looked at your profile. I misread "Teaching toddlers and selling drugs" as "Teaching toddler to sell drugs" oops.

I would do the same! Haha. Well, it's around 43 here, so it's chilly. I'm from north east Texas, though, so I mean..we don't experience THAT much cold :B My day has been decent, I've working.

I have a question for y'all: when you go out to eat, how well do you tip your waiter? I didn't know before I started waiting tables that waiters basically LIVE off of tips. So, that's why I ask. :B

    Well, I did take my class on a field trip to my drug dealer's. I want them to be open to all career opportunities, okay?

    @erik: I'm a bit further south, it's around 60 here. I wish it would stay this way forever.
    and I don't really do the math for tips. 10% is the standard, but I always over-tip. What kind of restaurant will you be working at? I know some waiters who barely make it and others who do far better than those who make full minimum wage.

    Well...I don't go out to eat, honestly. So I can't really answer that properly.

    It's in the 30s here. I was outside earlier without a coat and was fine, though.

    the tipping system doesn't exist here in nz lol
    if someone does get tipped, then it's definitely a shock because it's simply not how things work here lol
    though it's because we have a higher minimum wage than you guys soooo

    though when i tipped in america i just gave them what i thought was appropriate (nothing stingy), though there was one ~charming~ waiter who snorted at me so i gave him far less than what i normally would have!!!

    Why did he snort at you?
    I know it's not what you meant, but when people say "snort/snorted/snorts", I think of that noise kids make to imitate pigs. T:

    I normally tip the standard 15% though if I get especially good service I'll tip better. Most of the time, unless the service was remarkably bad, $2 is the minimum if I'm by myself and my bill is like $10.

    Every now and then I'll get a little tip happy. I round up usually and if they're great I'll add a good amount on top of the bill. :)

    I almost always go a little bit over the customary 10/12% and go for about 15%, since I never get a server who is despicable enough to short what they work so hard for.

    Haha, I have nobody to tip. I avoid eating artificial stuff in food, so most restaurants are out of the question. T:

    I do between 10 and 15, making it so my bill ends up even. Usually my bill is so small that I don't have many choices though.

    Exactly. T:
    Oddly enough, I can eat more fast food than restaurant stuff. Stuff you wouldn't expect (like McDonald's hamburgers) are natural.

    Bring that snow over here to Florida Live. We would love to have it (actually I'm sure the people who come down here for the winter won't but who cares about them).

    Gave someone a 6.66 tip once on purpose!

    I need to use my Fandango Giftcard to go see some movies. I'm thinking The Hobbit and Django Unchained.

    Les Miserables

    Isn't that like

    How disappointed I was when I found out the artificial Disney snow was bubble foam.

    And if I'm not feeling especially dickish when I tip I'll generally give them 15% or more like I'm supposed to.

    Oh and speaking of tips my grandparents went out to eat yesterday and had no idea how to tip and gave $3 on a $60 bill lol

    Needless to say they will not forget that look on his face apparently.

    The Hobbit was fun, but I'm really looking forward to seeing Hitchcock. Ever since I heard it was a thing I wanted to see it.

      I'm only interested in seeing Lincoln really. I'm not a movie guy. I have enough trouble finishing hour long shows like Dexter and Gamecenter CX, as good as they are.

      I feel so weird when people talk about customary tips that even go for percentages of their bills- here tips are considered a reward and if they go over €1 (even for a 10-people massive dinner), the waiters can consider themselves happy.

      Traditions I guess.

        Every place kinda differs... some places yes the tips are for extra rewards, while some others the tips are expected as you're paying them for their services directly (and not through paying for the food, and the restaurant pays their staff.) I am relatively cheap and I pay around 10%, while someone online was rather upset at me about it as he tips 17.5%... so heh.

        As for movies just never a big movie type of guy... not a lot of people to go with maybe the cause of it XD

        Well, I know in my case, we're paid below minimum wage. I guess the tips are supposed to make up for that? Idk. It's kind of a wonky system.

        It snowed here on my birthday. It was magical. (I stayed inside the entire time~)
        I'm actually going to go see Les Mis with an old friend from high school tonight, and then we're going to a club to see my friend perform in a drag show. Then..probably a bar? It's pretty exciting because this is my first time to go to a bar as I just turned 21. :B

        I really wanted to see Lincoln, but never got around to it. :C

        Wow, lots of snow on the way. 3-6 inches for all of Pennsylvania. This will be a great opportunity to test my new camera some more.

        I'm definitely interested in seeing Les Miserables. I'm really into movie adaptations of history novels/musicals (since the book came first, then the musical, then the movie) and while I've not read the book or seen the musical, it looks like it'd be worth going to see. Also Amanda Seyfried <33
