Short term fix is no caffeine all day and melatonin at night. Melatonin is non rx and a natural hormone your body makes every night to help you go to sleep. It's activated by lack of light, so turn off all lights and take 2mg of melatonin. Make sure you set aside at least 8 hours to sleep or you may feel irritable in the morning. Also watch out for intense dreams. [ Reply | More ]

Im black and I used to be a server in college. I can say that there is some truth to blacks not tipping as well. However, from talking to a lot my family and friends, I think its more due to not knowing what the percentage is supposed to be or, being completely serious, even knowing how to calculate 15% in their head. If I hadn't have been a server, I don't even that I would know how to calculate 15% in my head and I have a college degree. [ Reply | More ]

This is complete BS. 20% is not and has never been the standard tip. On top of that, you only get the standard tip for adequate service. [ Reply | More ]

Yeah, I'm the mom from above. 20% is standard for average service, but I waited through college and I certainly don't give 20% "minimum" for crappy service. [ Reply | More ]

That's ridiculous. If you have decent service you tip 15%, if it's particularly good you tip more. If it's terrible, token tip or none at all. [ Reply | More ]

Exactly. Why reward someone for doing a crappy job just because they're a waitress? If you do a bad job in any other industry, you get jack shit and no one's going to feel bad for you. [ Reply | More ]

I'll make you a deal, I'll start tipping 20% when waiters and waitresses start paying their damn taxes. Those tips are reportable income. Just going with the default withholding is not good enough. [ Reply | More ]

Do you believe this story?: In London, the standard tip was 12%, already added to the bill. Therefore, the waiters a waitresses don't give a crap. They know they are getting a tip anyway. I once saw a man with his date. They brought her food out first. He waited so long for his food, that she was able to finish her food before his food arrived. Finished, she then, had to sit and watch him eat his food. He promptly, politely, in a low-key British manner, asked the waitress to REMOVE the 12% standard tip from the check. [ Reply | More ]

You don't have to go. People have destination wedding because they DON'T want people to come. Makes it cheaper for them. Unless these are your closest friends/relatives, just send something off the registry and save yourself thousands of dollars. [ Reply | More ]

I would love to be the parent that is constantly doing things with their children, new activities, every single day structured but I need some adult time too and I rarely get that.

I don't think it is so bad (I didn't see the original post you are talking about). However we don't do much screen time. I think a little is fine for kids who are 3 yo or older. I think a lot of TV is constant noise which isn't good for development, takes away time from other activities kids need, and most importantly children need to learn how to entertain themselves without TV or parent.

(1) if you aren't great at taking the pill, it will mess up your cycle. Not sure what is going on, but all you can do is wait at this point or take additional pregnancy tests. (2) your 33. if you want a kid, go off the pill. if you don't want one right now or aren't sure, take your pill as prescribed. [ Reply | More ]
