The Wild Drunkard
I've noticed that when waiters give you that e-pad to pay with your card and leave a tip, the minimum tip option is 18%, and you'd need to press "custom tip" to enter a lower amount.
shaka was ahead of the curve here
seems the USA may have almost reached peak tipping point
Is tipping getting out of control? Many consumers say yes
it's hard really to remember and to summarise. they started about two years ago, there are 86 episodes now according to itunes, and they're an hour or two each. so there's fucking loads of it and i've listened to it all. the last four hours have been them going on and on and on and on and on about the beginning of gay disco, stonewall and the loft, and the relationship between those three things. i think they know what they're on about and they're good at explaining things, the podcasts aren't annoying to listen to, and they come at things from a well informed left-wing theoretical and (broadly) deleuzian perspective. so its very much aligned with my interests.What sort of stuff are they talking about? And who are they?
because of you dweebs the total price of my fucking coffee yesterday morning was $7, which is five pounds sixty nine penceLinebaugh's wife used to make like $100k a year pouring coffee tho, so it may be out of control. Those new digital registers/Square payment systems will fuck you up with their default 18% 20% 22% options
inflation init?that AP article says that some of those e-pads are set to 30%
A group of San Francisco transplants and tech-adjacent friends are living near one another off the Morgan L stop in Brooklyn, and they’re calling it the Neighborhood NYC. The vision of this “project” (which is not a cult) is to “bring high-agency, emotionally intelligent New Yorkers within walking distance of one another,” or, as they call it, “clustering.” (Again, this is not a cult.) Priya Rose, one of the people heading the effort alongside her husband, Andrew Rose, wrote on Substack that they were trying to “combine the serendipity of a college campus, the co-creation of Burning Man, the agency of Silicon Valley, the vigor of a Midwestern high school track coach, and the culture of New York City.”
