      Um, duh?

      So, I work at a movie theater that has a full restaurant/bar menu and service (though it's not the place you're thinking of; I guarantee it). Being a movie theater, we make all our money off of food and drink, so prices are a bit up there comparatively. As such, people think they can game the system by bringing in their own food.

      But here's the thing: If you're going to bring in your own food, either pick up the wrapper and throw it away yourself, or make sure it's something we carry.

      Don't like paying that much for a draft of Sam Adams Seasonal? The solution is NOT to bring in a bottle of that beer, but rather to see what we have available in bottles and smuggle that in (even though it's illegal to do that in our state). Our servers may not be so sharp as to remember what we have in bottles, but I'm the fucking bartender and I know that shit backwards and forwards, so I will call you out on it in a heartbeat!

      I once heard that social networks are like house parties. It's all fun until the parents show up. Well, the party's over, because even my grandmother showed up.

      Add to it that employers now look at your Facebook page and you could get fired for posting stupid shit you've done, and Facebook doesn't look like much fun any more. I would post stuff on my personal blog, but I made the mistake of adding the URL for that site on the signature line in emails I've sent to employers looking for a job.

      Everyone needs a place to rant about life without worrying about who hears it. So here I am. This is where I'm gonna talk about the stuff my 10-year old cousins don't need to hear. Here, I can be anonymous. And if no one reads my posts, it doesn't matter. At least I've gotten it out of my system.
