Or to put it another way, only the stupid Americans are marxists.
You and the muppets that follow GB are stupid fascist.
G.E.R. you'll have to provide your definition of fascism because the rest of the world defines it as a governmental ideology where free speech/religion/thought/etc are suppressed. It and communism are both democrat side of the aisle extremes with the primary differences being that fascism is fiscally Conservative (living within their means) whereas communism is fiscally social (spend baby spend) AND fascism allows for a 1 state religion (usually worshiping the state itself) and communism rejects all religion. Beck and "Beckites" welcome religious diversity (doesn't fit the real definition of fascism). We also are fiscally Conservative (fits the mold). We allow free speech and free thought (neither fit the real definition of fascism). Every aspect of fascism is the exact opposite of Beck's philosophy except for being fiscally Conservative. So please elaborate on what you mean by calling Beck and "Beckites" stupid fascists especially when we are the exact opposite in all but 1 area and in that 1 area there are differences as well but I'm not going to break that down right now.

“and it made me want to work harder and be a better example that someday might allow him to view things from my perspective, if only for just a moment.”
Exactly, Reb. My take on it is that maybe he has looked at it from your perspective and he doesn’t like what he sees. Now stop trying to make me like you because of your sexuality. I’ll make you a deal Bean. I won’t discuss my sex life with you and you won’t share yours with me. K? Buh bye.

Ah. The cute little technique of moral relevancy to which bitter, cuckholded Regressives cling.
Nice try Zapp. Now go home and lick your wounds in private. It’s disgusting here in public.

I see she’s never met a malignant narcissist before.
Jebbie is scarey, period. Babs will do something about that, though. She always thought her Jebbie was better presidential material than his brother.

Under the Samurai sword [Paperback]
C. M Graham (Author)
Mr. Graham gave me a copy of his book. I read it over and over. It was very difficult to get through but I’ve read it several times. I’m in awe of Mr. Graham and his comrades. What they endured is unspeakable.

The Dimmicrats took big $$$$$$$ from the Saudis for their no vote. At least the out-going losers will still leave as millionaires!
You just made that up.
In any event, the Saudi have always been in bed wit the Bush.s.
Not the Clinton's or the Kennedys.
Dubya has even been photographed holding hands and swapping saliva
with a Sheik. Turned me straight for a few days
Here Chaz, er uh, veryviolet.
Is Lurch Heinz Kerry into oil or just ketchup?
Saudi bribes would explain the Democrat's otherwise inexplicable fear and loathing of Canadian energy.
Cool, now I know who chaz is. Had a Chevy p/u once that was cobalt blue metallic.
TrickyDick, Actually, cobalt violet is a shade of pink.
Obviously you do not know the Saudi and other Arab countries donated mega millions to the Clinton library in Little Rock.
More likely they got paid off from Berkshire Hathaway who owns the railroad already bring in oil from Canada on rail cars. They don't want the pipeline

Any crocodile tears out of a Muslim should be loudly proclaimed to be what it is: TAQUIYA!
Sounds like Machivellianism to me. Same deal, I guess. Islam is more of a political ideology than anything, since historically it grew through conquest and always was accompanied by Theocracy, the Caliphate.

TIPS= “to insure proper service”
Get over it, or provide proper service next time.
10% for below average service...
15% for average service..
20% for excellent service... food prep by restaurant has nothing to do with it, not the servers fault unless they prepared it.
Also be kind to the people who serve you, you can be loud and joke but include them in your circle and they will out perform everyone !
I'm really tired of people expecting a tip for everything. I don't stiff servers on a tip unless the bad service is a direct result of their fault. But that's just me. This BS about the servers making less than minimum wage is not my problem and should be no reason to guilt people into leaving large tips. Tips are up to the customer, period. If you don't like that, you need to find yourself another job.
If you've ever worked on a wait staff, you know there are some demographics that are historically bad tippers, no matter how good the food or service. Just do your job gracefully and move along. The next table could make your day!
LeSean McCoy, welcome to the woulderful world of social media
Centuries ago when I was waitressing my way through h.s., the best tips were from those I thought could least afford it. Always someone in a service type job who understood and appreciated the value of a gratuity. A sweet elderly black gentleman who worked on the railroad once left me $10 on a cup of coffee! (I always enjoyed conversing with the older Americans!) And I still remember him.
Sapper, that how I operate as well, BUT
Do you tip based on sub total or after tax total? Here that means 10% becomes 12%, and many shops that offer that 'helpful' scale at the bottom base it with tax, which I believe is wrong.
I will also say the waitress who really does a good job at IHOP getting a lesser tip than the borderline shot at McCormick and Schmick based on the price of the food seems wrong.
I'll say his... If they raise minimum wage, my tipping will be affected.
Only once have I had service bad enough to leave a penny. If the service isn't performed, they shouldn't get paid for it. Part of eating out is to be waited on. Otherwise I could go to McDonald's. Very few people would pay for services that aren't delivered, or delivered with purposeful shoddiness.
You know, I am not wealthy but do ok, periodically I'll see something in a server that is exceptional or sense a need... I have given a $200 tip on a $20 meal...more than once.
I also try to buy a meal for Veteran or Military in Uniform once a week, and I tell the server to not disclose who did it to the person.
I usually will tip at least 20 percent (and then round up to the nearest dollar); but there have been times I have left no tip at all when service was bad. When those occasions occur, I always write a short note on the check as to why I left no tip.
Bad service=Bad tip, it' ok all day long. No one is entitled to anything but death and 47% people paying taxes.
WANT = "Wages And Not Tips". You should work for money. Tips are like bonuses; you never know if you'll get one or how big it will be. If you rely on tips, you are at the mercy of factors out of your control.
If the service was poor, twenty cents was nineteen cents too much.
I helped pay my way through college with tips. I was disappointed when I thought I gave very good service, but was left "flat." However, it averaged out to be decent pay. Today I see so many people who automatically leave generous tips even with poor service--it is just automatic with them. Overall, I hear too much snivelling from too many service personnel about not being generously tipped, regardless of service.
Dump the expected TIPS craap and make employers meet minimum wage standards.
I always tip at LEAST 15% unless the waiter/waitress has a bad attitude.
At my job I get run through the ringer bouncing off the walls and know that a lot of the time I'm simply incapable of giving the customer the experience they deserve...so I can see that happening in the food biz.
Bad food? It had nothing to do with my waiter/waitress.
I grew up with a dad who would slowly poor his glass of water out onto the floor -- in front of everyone -- if he was not waited on fast enough. I've always been ashamed of those days.
A tip is a gift, not a requirement. You earn it, and as judged by your response, it was deserved. I can't stand these "you owe me" entitlement people.
What no one is talking about is how much this receipt with LeSean McCoy's signature on it is worth on its own. A sports memorabilia collector will likely pay more for it than the waiter would have gotten for a "normal" tip... especially now with all the media attention. Perhaps that has been the idea all along. Hmmmm.
So is he going to be banned from the NFL for ethics violation???
Im sure that everytime McCoy fumbles the football, he returns a portion of his check, you know, poor service equals less pay.
Why do Americans think it looks good to leave a tip at all. I never got tips wherever I worked. I did good work and I got a wage. I enjoy China because tipping is not even allowed because you have a job, do it right,and you will continue to have a job. If you wish to leave a tip, fine, your choice but don't do it to look good. But so many leave a tip because they don't want to be thought a cheapskate. Hey you purchased the food, you paid for it and by doing that you paid their wages. I only leave a tip (usually 10% because more is not really necessary) when I get really good service/attention. Sorry that you say they don't make much - then how come some are drawing in real big bucks and much more than you. Check around and get informed.
you got it. give me shit-y service then do not expect anything other than a shit-y tip.
I agree. I waited on an NFL player from the 90s (back before they made millions per game). This was a very big name guy too. The other waiters told me not to get too excited because, no matter what he always tipped $5 and they were right. I found out later that he worked for a local company and sold frozen meat out of a truck. A few years later I met one of his teammates who worked as a rep for a food distribution company that serviced the restaurant where I worked. He said that unless a player back then went on to host a national sports show most of them ended up in a rep position at any number of companies to set themselves up for retirement.
As for waiter, he should be fired for being a whiny little b****. No one owes him anything. Not the guy just getting by or the millionaire raking it in.
I agree, to much bullcrap complaining about tips. Do your job to the best of your ability and even if the food sucks patrons usually do not hold the Server Responsible.
Maybe if Rob would man up - he would show us all the receipts for the day instead of Singling out a NFL Player, and show us how much his poor service paid off for him.
If the problem was the food, it's the cooks fault. If the service was off, it's the waiters fault. Check out http://waiterrant.net/?p=1597
Agreed, as the tip has nothing to do with the wealth of the customer and everything to do with the quality of the food and the service. And it is the best mechanism to communicate that to the waitress / waiter if they did nothing to fix the situation. I'd say he should get a good lawyer and sue them for publishing the receipt for the sole purpose of gaining some cheap attention by shaming him.
That wasn't a tip. It was a message to convey that since this lowlife scum thinks he's better than a waiter at a restaurant, he can send a message basically saying, I'm important, I'm talented and you common folk are beneath me so here's a nice shiny nickel. This is the worst kind of human and the NFL does not need scum like this playing. If I was the owner of the Eagles, I'd bench this guy until he went back to that restaurant without his disgusting entourage and apologize in a way that makes that waiter go home smiling. I hate scum like like this guy. He deserves nothing more than a real good ass kicking.
Yeah, tips were original dolled out to extraordinary service as a reward for someone going above and beyond the necessary or from rich businessmen with money to burn on a pretty girl. The whole concept that you're required to give a tip to everybody, regardless of service, has gotten way out of hand, is a symptom of the modern entitlement society, and is the singular reason why I never go to restaurants unless socially obliged...and I tip well when it's well deserved.
Yes, modern workers are often underpaid and rely on tips, but that's only because we let the whole thing get out of hand to begin. Pay employees fairly what the job warrants and let us tip people who deserve it instead of hiding the burden of employee wages behind our bill.
Tips are supposed to be the motivator of servers. It’s a tough question. Give them a decent salary and you rely solely on honest work ethic…workers tend to “settle in” to a salary and do only what it takes to protect their job.
If the server apologizes for the food or the service it’s a reason to go ahead and tip. If unapologetic and flippant attitude, the customer should get management to discount the bill, let alone expect a tip.
Note to food establishments: A lot of people are like me…we don’t make a big scene at your restaurant if we had a bad experience…you will simply never see me and my money again. I shouldn’t have to tell you if your food or service sucks, that’s what a manager is for…and an owner.
This is why so many restaurants don’t make it. Plus there are actually a huge amount of people that have no idea what good food is. I’ve seen “restaurant makeover” shows where the owners and chefs actually argue that their food is good even when nearly everyone says it sucks.
What should be illegal in this case is not the posting of the receipt, but the image of the guy’s signature. They blurred the last 4 of the card number but now this guy’s signature can be easily forged. Whoever posted it without blurring it just to embarrass a sports figure is an ass and should be picking up garbage along the road for a few weeks.
What did he do wrong? LeSean was just doing what his LeMomma always told him to do: "Son, when ya git da gud sa-vice, always leave a 20 pa-cent tip." You can't expect a publik-skool product like LeSean' to know anything about "percent." He just thought his momma didn't speak so good, so he gives everyone a 20-cent tip, just like his momma taught him.

This woman is so brainwashed, it’s disgusting. She has to fall on her sword or she faces the narcissistic rage of a psychotic jerk. She may end up dead.

Yes. That’s a very neanderthal way of understanding the complexity of human relationships.

The look on her face and her submissive demeanor say it all. I hope she can get out of this sick, twisted relationship with her life and her mental health.
