Double this. No need to worry about tossing a half used sponge when they cost you a nickel apiece.

If it's good butter and good bread, I will lay it on thick enough that I can see the tooth marks after I take a bite. So we're talking like 1/8 in. easy, edge to edge. If it's like Land o Lakes butter and they've been keeping it in the fridge, I'll be less aggressive.

People in rural areas have to drive to get anywhere. I’ve lived the majority of my life in small towns like that and the only people I know that didn’t drive were either too young, disabled, or people who got their license taken away because of DUI. Often, the drunks would keep on driving without a license.

I realize I'm painting with a broad brush here. But anywhere I've lived or visited where I didn't have to drive to get around had ample access to street food. I can't imagine why one would go to taco bell if a taco truck was an option.

It’s not even so much that you’re guaranteed to have it done right (although it’s more likely since the mechanics are used to working on those cars, with those parts, and often have specialized tools). It’s that the job is being performed by someone who is insured and is responsible for fixing the the thing if they Read more

You can’t get an exemption for those being “classics?” I’m not familiar with how California’s emissions tests and registration laws work, but if you can drive around an old Camaro, a Japanese specimen old enough to clear the 25-year import law ought to be fair game. Read more

I think the bigger issue here is that they even have a dining room. I don't know about you, but when I eat Taco Bell, I do NOT want to do so where other humans can view my shame. That is between me, the drive through guy, and my dog.

If a business is properly managed, you don’t get a bunch of no-call-no-shows in a shift. That only happens when you hire people who don’t want to be there, you understaff, pay them shit, and treat them as dispensable.

I know this sentiment is a bit anathema around here, but he should have just paid the dealer. $1000 is really not all that much in the long run to not fuck up your car.

Honey, if you think that's bottom of the barrel customer service, you must not get out much. I'll agree it should have been handled better, but try an airport Chili's and report back.

I spent years helping run family restaurants and working in others, and I can pretty much agree with all of this. Although, I will say that the hours can become a bit easier to manage if your concept is less ambitious (my uncle’s diner served standard-but-good midwest breakfast and lunch, and he was home every night).

Yeah, nobody does that. I'm a fat fuck from Wisconsin, and there's no way I could eat that three times a day. I could mow that breakfast plate no problem, but that would be a splurge. And I would need to skip lunch.

I live in Wisconsin, and I eat basically the same thing as the half Momoa every three months or so. I’d gladly eat it every Saturday if I wasn’t trying to get in shape. Read more
