    On a side note, yesterday I accidentally hit some random sequence of keys that disabled my *enter* key unless I am pushing shift at the same time. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Actually, it might be more complex than that. I think sometimes people who will work other people to death for a small amount of money have always been fairly financially well-off themselves, or who have never had to do any kind of "dirty" work or manual labor, so they're just being self-absorbed, and possibly even carrying delusions that working class people somehow deserve their fate, or that they're less intelligent, or any number of other dehumanizing classist mentalities that are not entirely unlike racism or nationalism.

    Poorer people also tend to tip better, for the reason I just explained. Because they have empathy and they actually comprehend what's going on.

    I still think there's room for the "assholes are assholes" theory, though. I know people exist who intentionally will take as much as they can while giving as little as possible just because of being a selfish creep or a sadist, and not simply out of ignorance.
    Thank you Marm for the serious post. I'm not a big fan of the 'assholes are assholes' theory due to most people do seem to be trying to do good if only in their own way. I do agree with the rest though. Now that I think about it the demanding couple have always had workers do the specialty jobs, whereas the easy-going person is just getting too old to do everything that she used to do. They both come from the same upper middle class however. I am a supporter of the empathy-altruism theory and the first group hasn't had the opportunity to see how difficult their demands can be.

    I never expect tips, so I would enjoy the books.

    I am mostly into the empathy-altruism theory, but I still believe there are people who are just assholes who really don't care if they're doing "good." I think it is naive to believe all humans are preoccupied with doing good or with the welfare of their fellow man. While most people aren't evil, I don't think all people necessarily think about doing good, either.

    Tips are essential in some states because servers are only paid approximately TWO DOLLARS PER HOUR. That's not even a livable wage, and companies get away with it legally because tips are assumed.

    Same thing with dancers - dancers aren't paid at all, they live off of tips only.

    Yes, that IS a suit jacket under overalls.

    That's a huge fashion faux pas right there.

    It's like, look, either you're a farmer or you're a yuppie. Mixing farmer ironically with "yuppie" is not only an insult to farmers, but makes you look like a big huge dork. I don't think I could even have a conversation with that guy without laughing. I couldn't take anything he said seriously, and that's a pretty big statement from me because usually I like it when people dress differently or have a unique style or whatever, I'm not conservative by any means, but that particular clothing combo is just absurd.

    I just needed a place to post this.

    There is nothing that turns me on more than a woman who uses obscure words. Vocabulary is hot.

    I agree which is why I added in "their own way". I have a roommate who keeps alternating back and forth on hedonism and other philosophies.

    The lowest wage I've seen is four dollars; I'm not sure how people survive dependent on tips.
