1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Okay, sorry. I'm going to tone down my rhetoric; I'd rather have a discussion than a shrieking match.

    First of all, you really aren't punishing the rude waiter in most cases. Most restaurants now (in my experience and the experience of friends who have worked many restaurant jobs) pool tips. All the tips go into one big fund which gets split by percentages according to job- busboy, waiter, host, etc. So, you don't really stick it to the server who was rude, you just reduce the salary of every employee who works at the restaurant. All of them are punished.

    Additionally, I would say that even if it is a restaurant where you personally know that tips aren't pooled, you should speak to a manager rather than not tip, at the very least 18%. In no other job, even in other areas of the service industry, is the customer given control over the worker's salary. Sure, they can complain and the worker may be fired, but the customer cannot just dock the guy's pay, which is what you are doing when you don't tip. Like it or not, the reason that restaurants can pay $2.50 an hour, as ridiculous as that is, is that it is assumed that the tips made will average out to be equivalent to minimum wage. In this one situation, you legally have the right to cut the server's pay based on your evaluation of how well they do their job. I would still say that is unethical to do so.

    All fair points. I don't feel bad because 98/100 times I'm tipping 18%.

    I'm going to start asking about the pooling thing in restaurants...

    Just got out of a meeting and my CEO always finds way to talk about food, stocks&bonds, and financial planning

    FFS :fu:

    I can't get away from SF...


    ANYWAYS

    I am addicted to Kamakura shirting omg

    It is a shame though I got an email replying back saying essentially that when a shirt is out of stock, they don't make them anymore except the their standard ones...
    oh shucks!

    Also, banh mi is really delicious. What is that white sauce made of anyone know? Like traditionally is it just Asian mayonnaise or something else entirely. Is it butter based?

    getting in late here, but anyone who thinks that Leder's choice of font means he sympathizes with nazis should consider picketing these people:
