    Cute story. I'm sure the kid really got a kick out of it.

    I'm actually really concerned about going to Iceland next year (dunno if I mentioned, I got my acceptance letter) because my experience of well-educated foreigners is they're way better at English grammar than native speakers... Well, Americans.

    The trick is just to insist confidently that they are wrong. "Yes I know what they teach you in your textbooks but trust me, the word is 'irregardless.'"

    Luckily my family is UK enough that I can fake a very convincing Estuary accent, because I don't think that would fly in Murkan.

    EDIT: Also, mister big tipper gave me the choice between a quarter bottle of ludicrously expensive brandy and a 20 dollar tip today. I told him I didn't feel right taking either, so he made me take both. Very fucking happy about this "predicament".

    LOL I'm nowhere near that interesting. Someone else (a friend) got arrested for breaking a restraining order. I had to pick him up. Luckily he had enough cash.

    All my friends are 45-60 years old, and all of them are categorically more interesting and more likely to get in trouble than me. It may be sad.

    pick a fight in a bar + get arrested + pick a fight in jail + get your ass handed to you while a dude's breaking it in = interesting life

    No it can't.
    Yeah I figured as much. That figure was really all that stood out for me in that story, not that there was enough fraud or bad practices w/r/t unemployment that most state budget caps could be closed if they clamped down...
    What's the saying? A sucker born every second? Your friend is that sucker.
