people were being entitled assholes to a harried restaurant worker who was doing the best she could, so I gave her some encouraging words and $10 cash, also fuck capitalism

and anybody who thinks calling a pizza place and spending 10 minutes berating the shift manager will make your pizza appear faster should climb into a dumpster, set it on fire, and roll it away, toward the sea

Why waste a perfectly good dumpster? Gasoline is cheaper and more effective. 😈

@hfrazey thank you for this!

I still remember my very first job, at a new restaurant in town - I didn't know what the heck I was doing and it was crazy busy and had people yelling at me all night - nice woman at a nearby table gave me a $5 tip and wrote me a nice note...and I still remember it, 25 years later...

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
