Beautiful World?

It seems semantically silly to me to say that “Life” or “the world” is beautiful. “Beautiful” is both a subjective and a comparative word. Something can’t really be said to be beautiful, unless there are similar things that are more and/or less beautiful.

With no comparison, we can’t really say that the world is beautiful.

It just is.

…is not a city in China!

If you can’t afford to tip, stay home, or go to McDonald’s or a liquor store.

Good rule of thumb: If you can hear your tip hit the bar/counter/table, you’re a cheapass.

Don’t think it’s okay to not tip your bartender because you only got a Coke. It took more time to pack the ice and pour the Coke than it would have to open a beer.

The bill/tab is for the food and/or beverage. The tip is for delivery.

Random thoughts from a previous life as a barback.
