Why didn't you just order one online Tenebris?

@Datapath: Depending on font, no they aren't. Very similar but different enough. M, as you can note has perfectly vertical side bars while W has the sides at an angle downwards toward the point. To the OCD submitter, which would be worse to you: this sign... or mixing the M with a single W in "summer"? As we see in the sign, they used two W's as M's and one M as a W. It is perfectly reasonable to consider that they had lost or damaged all the M's and improvised this work around. At least none of the letters have number substitutions...

So... yes she was rude. But, since it came up... This part of the story: "...and swearing in front of my toddler who is the human equivalent of a sponge." As an adult, I have the right and privilege to select for myself whatever language I feel is appropriate for use in any given situation. I accept that some word choices will have social consequences (I'm thinking a certain 4 letter C word, an F word particularly despised by the GLBT community, and the N word as good examples) but I am still free to use them at my own peril. I don't and I do attempt to be conscientious about other word choice. However, I swear. I understand the original meaning of the words. I understand most social contexts and impressions. I do not appreciate this sentiment that because you spawned a thing that I should censor my word choice for that reason alone. Keeping the kid in a bubble will not help them in the long term. Let them hear the word and as their parent teach them the meaning, explain the social ramifications, and impose at your discretion a ban on their and your own use of the word. Please feel free to dislike me for using it. Please feel free to not associate with me on a go-forward basis. But do not expect me to censor myself.

But it IS worth a success and a reroll (or two successes) in a White Wolf game!

Actually in Texas and New Jersey, and this information is now 7+ years old so it could have changed, work comp insurance wasn't required, legally. The business was still responsible for work related illness & injury and having the policy was safer for the company because it protected them but it wasn't legally required. There were alternatives that some companies would choose to employ that provided similar coverages to the employer but left them open to lawsuits in a way that having work comp didn't. But these saved companies money. Generally were not recommended for any companies that weren't 100% strictly office jobs. As to the issue at hand, the poster and their fellows absolutely should have notified the labor board and OSHA. And Mr Hernia needs to contact a lawyer to see if they can find one to take the case pro-bono. Given the conditions the lawsuit should be guaranteed, with lovely punitive damages tacked on.

So this isn't your fault but I think your company needs to fix it's shit. Dude was right about that being valid ID (though, yes an asshole and should have accepted that you were limited by something outside your control). What about a state without a magnetic strip to scan? My standard issue state of Washington drivers license doesn't have a mag strip. Or what about a shopper whose ID won't scan because of other reasons? Your company needs to add a search function more robust than "scan ID".

@DuchessInky- some coffee shops still use washable mugs for dine in service, which is what I assume this customer wanted. Probably insists that it tastes different.

"How can you tell by looking if a fry is cold?" "You can't. That's why he did something stupid and paid for it. :)" You kinda can. If you're VERY familiar with a particular restaurant's fries and what they look like hot vs cold. Cold fries often have a different color and some places cold fries get really... droopy. But even these can be misleading. Sometimes you do get hot fries that look cold. Or cold fries that look hot (these are the worst). It's always best to check than to assume. This guy clearly doesn't know what he's talking about and deserved that burnt finger.

I can think of some things more disappointing TT. But, not many. Butterless popcorn is wrong though. Unless it has been chocolate dipped.

"and the fix was some registry editing" My heart skipped a beat when I read this sentence. It skipped another 2 when you said Windows 95. Thanks TT; I now need to have open heart surgery because of your employer! ;)

@Google- it can be as very illegal as the law wants. What ISN'T illegal in most states is to make the decision to terminate a server's employment without any stated reason. Or to state the reason as "incompetent as evidenced by the number of diners who have walked out without paying" citing that a competent server doesn't have that issue.
1 reply
... after asking your manager to deliver the ticket he STILL believed the creepy fuck when he said you'd offer to pay for it?! Your manager sucks! And that server has to pay if a table walks out rule pisses me off. Good on you for sticking creepy ass with the bill the second time.

*raises hand* Texas kid. Moved from there to Colorado. First winter was... illuminating. Promptly purchased a good hoodie, gloves, and boots. Ironically, FB is reminding me today how I did during part of that winter. Heh

"If you are making a huge stink like this over ONE, I can tell you it'll obviously be too expensive for you, you cheapskate." Disagree. Not intrinsically a cheapskate. Could be attempting to teach the child a good life lesson: moderation. Treats are great but should be indulged in sparingly. Don't buy too many or temptation will crack your resolve. So... she's trying to buy a single item and clearly is struggling with the pricing scheme, not understanding that each individual truffle will vary in it's weight and so there ISN'T a price for "just one". Now her (possible) attempts at teaching the crotch-fruit one valuable life lesson are, obviously, negated by her teaching it, inadvertently, another unfavorable lesson: how to be a needless, ignorant, and ugly-ass bitch.

"I would think that an owner that really cared about their drivers would pay a living wage so that tips didn't matter." Yes yes, we all agree. But the owner isn't doing anything that is considered illegal or, to *most* people, even morally reprehensible by paying the legal tipped worker minimum wage. So this isn't really the appropriate story to attempt to spark a tipped vs full wage argument. We must commend the attitude of the manager for doing something that many companies and spineless managers won't: stand up for his employees to the hell-spawned customers.

So, I guess since you didn't get the larger piece that your wish isn't coming true... ;)

Lightning- First, my experience is that people don't wash articles meant as gifts for someone else. For good reasons. My mom has a pretty severe allergy to certain kinds of laundry detergent. Second, selling biohazard contaminated clothing is a serious legal liability. Like SUPER serious. They can get shut down serious. So even if they could have been washed... No.

I appreciate that they are warning them in advance. Also this policy limits the chance of favorites being played.

"the lid was not put on the cup correctly." Don't recall where, but I had read that what this store was doing was deliberately purchasing the lids and the cups from two different vendors to save costs. Lids didn't fit properly which contributed to quite a few spills.
1 reply
You certainly can Lightning. Of course the emergency services will most likely delegate that to the bottom of the list as they deal with drunk driving accidents, fireworks which start fires, assaults from drunken kissing of friends, friend's significant others, and exes, along with the whole host of other more life threatening outcomes as a result of a global party night. Also, depends on how loud the noise is from outside the building or in the hallway. In my building, you can't hear too many loud noises from inside the apartments from the outside of the building or the hallways. But the sound proofing between floors leaves much to be desired.

They used to deliver. Before their $5 hot and ready deal was a regular thing, they were our go-to pizza place when I was a kid. They even delivered on base in Texas. :D
