This system is in place because paying servers far less than the minimum wage is legal and common, with restaurant owners assuming most of their income will be supplied by tips. Tipped employees in some U.S. states can make as little as $2.13 per hour , which is why it's so important to tip them 20%. Many Europeans visitin…

Dude Offers Guy Middle Seat On The Plane, Twitter Users Call Him "Entitled"

If there's one thing I hate about Twitter, it's the people who use it . I'm not saying this to be a hater. Still, longtime Twitter users like myself will recognize a type of defensive rhetoric unique to Twitter users that makes the experience of using the bird app kind of miserable. They will always assume the worst about a situation and respond accordingly. They act like everyone is the enemy who needs to get told off by their righteous army. I don't know why Twitter is like this, but if I had…

Dude Tapes Crazy Letter On His Neighbors Door After Getting Ghosted, Twitter Debates Who is The Bad Guy

The discourse around the ethics of ghosting has been floating around the internet for years, and it seems like everybody feels strongly about it. I am convinced that some people believe that ghosting is a war crime. I am pro-ghosting in certain circumstances, and I'm no stranger to ghosting people after a first date, especially when nobody mentions wanting a second date during the initial date. My villain origin story for why I don't hate ghosting is one for the books. I went on a date when I w…
