Ok this ^^^ has absolutely nothing to do with the post. I just like the song. Duncan Mighty is next in line after Flavour as one of my fav artists. (-__-) @ the video though lol
Anywho, so the 1st topic today is tipping (inspired by kitkat).
Now, i know the struggle. Waitresses make like $5/hour and thats before taxes. So they rely on tips to survive. But even knowing that, i am still probably one of the worst tippers in the world lol. I am the queen of the $2 tip regardless of whether or not $2 meets the standard 15%. My mindset is definitely why am I paying you to do your job- especially if you're not even doing your job well. And believe me, if the service sucks, you will get a spare change tip (as in, if my bill came to $12.52, you will get 48 cents to make it an even $13).
Why should i give a (good) tip if:
- The service was not above/beyond
- The service was downright bad
- I don't feel like it lol (not nice, i know)
- The person was bold enough to open their mouth (or hand) in expectation of a tip
- You are trying to nickel-and-dime me
Including the tip on your bill if you have 6+ people in your group at a restaurant. Then have the nerve to remind you to "tip your server" again on top of the one they are already making you pay. GTFOHWTBS.
Being charged a "delivery fee" (sometimes in addition to having a minimum order amount) when you order food. I've always assumed that it went to the delivery driver but apparently not as they also say "don't forget to tip your driver".
Next topic: Im am the anti-roommate
In the spirit of me moving into my new (temporary) place this weekend, i feel the need to share that i am the worst roommate you could possibly have- in terms of socializing. I'll go into all of this in greater detail in my next post. But yeah, i am the type of person that believes in staying in your room unless its absolutely necessary for you to be in the common area of the apartment lol. My mom thinks im a psycho but i know a lot of people that agree with me. Unfortunately none of them have ever been my roommates. To me there are only 3 reasons why anyone should ever be in the common area of the apartment. They are:
- You are leaving the apartment and don't feel like being a ninja and climbing out of your bedroom window
- You are making food/washing your dishes
- You have company and your room is not big enough to accommodate all of them
Final topic before i get ready for my morning commute: Doing What You Love
The one thing I'm enjoying most about this practicum im doing (and my field in general) is how cheerful and happy everyone is. Even the people that look mean/intimidating are a laugh riot lol. Never in my wildest dreams did i think that I would want to work in Higher Education, but yet here I am (well, im still a student but you know what i mean). From my ridiculously unrealistic dreams as a child of being a marine biologist (i can't swim and i hate animals) or a biochemist (chemistry was probably my worst science subject ever) to being certain that i was going to be a guidance counselor and even starting a counselor education master's program (i do not like kids- what on earth was i thinking). This whole Higher Ed thing just kind of fell in my lap and im so glad i had the courage.gumption to pursue it (i didn't even know this career field really existed and was something you could go to school for up until literally a month before i applied for my current grad program) because despite the hard work i really am loving every bit of what im learning and doing :)
Have a good weekend everyone :)
