The latest imagined threat to mankind? Gift cards!

Basically Envirocrats are just whining Chicken Littles who are probably a complete pain in the ass to be around. At least that is what Donald Douglas says

The left’s environmental fascists go after another hugely popular capitalist standby, the plastic gift card. Nothing is off limits to these assholes. Any product or capitalist innovation that proves popular or highly successful is targeted for destruction. And this time? The stinking retail gift card? How low can retarded leftists go? And we’re supposed to go back to gift certificates? That might be hard on trees, you know? And plastic gift cards are recyclable, doh! Maybe a recycling campaign would have been better than assassinating this simple retail purchasing device.

Leftists are vile people out to destroy virtually everything of convenience and utility in the modern capitalist economy.

At LAT, “Retailers seek ‘green’ alternative to plastic gift cards“:

It does seem anything innovative bothers Envirowhiners doesn’t it? They like to pretend they are “above us all” they are hip, they get it man! Actually, I think they just enjoy being a pain in everyone else’s behind, Take Jessica Hamilton for instance

Like millions of Americans, Jessica Hamilton of Pasadena will buy her friends and family a handful of gift cards this holiday season, drawn by their convenience.

Yet Hamilton, who carries reusable bags when she goes shopping, is bothered by the thought of all of that plastic ending up in landfills along with worn-out hotel key cards, credit cards and the like.

Ah yes, the landfill, the source of worry and butt hurt for Enviroweenies. Go read the rest if you like, or if you can stand the angst these poor Envirodouches have to endure for poor, poor Mother Earth.

Oh, and congratulate Donald on his 5,000,000 hits! Which reminds me, we are nearing 4,000,000 hits here at The DaleyGator.

21 things servers hate, and some that bartenders hate

Buzzfeed has the 21 things every server hates. My favorite one is no 21. I have seen worse

enhanced-buzz-21138-1360082963-1

 

I think the two worst examples I ever saw, was a dollar left on a $67 tab, on a credit card, and trust me, this is a good waitress who got it, and 31 cents, left, again on a credit card for a 54.69 tab, ans of course their kids left a mess from Hell. Some people should just not go out to eat, that is all there is to it.

Now, some things a bartender hates. 

#1 The guy, who orders a shot and says “hook me up”. I have heard that one, or some variation of it about 850 times over the years. Number of times the guy actually tips, well, if anything? ZERO! So basically, this douche nozzle wants you to risk your job over pouring his drink, for a buck, if that much?

#2 The camper. This is the person who sits at your bar, eats, has a drink, or two, then sits, and sits, and… takes up a seat when you have people lined up waiting for seats.

#3 The patron who wants you to wait on them, and them only, although you have 15 other guests at your bar, and a service well to make drinks for. This is the person who needs something constantly. They are also the person who orders their burger, or salad, and THEN after they get it start the modifications to their order.

#4 Mr, or Ms Cell Phone. They sit at the bar, yacking on their phone. Do you let them be? Do you try to use sign language to ask them what you can get them? Then, after you get them a drink, and their order placed, everyone at the bar must listen to their obnoxious phone conversation for the next 30 minutes.

#5  And this is the most hated by far. It is the people you converse with, their drink is always refilled, or new drink made, they never wait for anything. They run up a good sized bill. They thank you, compliment you, but tip 10%. 

Another quick one for you. Had a girl a few years ago, sat, drink, ate, all the time talking to a guy at the bar. Telling him about her job, as a server. Bitching about folks that tip 10%, over and over. Wanna guess what she tipped? Less than the dreaded 10%. How badly I wanted to ask her why. But, most people tip well, no complaints. And, yes, I have lots of bad service stories too, believe me. 

 

 

Biden blames Bush, forgets about Obama’s spending spree

And Chris at Wyblog will not allow Crazy Uncle Joe to get away with that Read it all, LOTS more at the link

It’s always “blame Bush.” Easier than taking responsibility. Or solving the problem. The thing is though, Joe Biden was right there cheering along with everyone else when those two wars were approved.

Biden pointed to Ryan and blamed the recession on “this man voting to put two wars on a credit card…” The only problem with this assertion is then-Sen. Joe Biden voted for those “two wars on credit cards” too. He doesn’t want you to know that, but it’s absolutely true.

Oops. Talk about an inconvenient truth.

Then there’s the equally inconvenient fact that when it comes to putting stuff “on credit cards” Obama makes Bush look like a piker. Here’s my favorite chart again:

 

You know what they say about first impressions?

 

Well, I have to out this out there. I am not usually very quick to  dislike, or distrust a person based on first impressions. But when I do get a negative feeling about someone I am almost always proven right in my distrust of them if my BS meter goes off. That being said, I have to say my first impression of Wayne Allyn Root was not good. Frankly, my BS meter was pegged immediately. I felt like I was listening to a cheap scam artist, or maybe a televangelist, you know, the ones with the crazy hair, or maybe a used car salesman. Sorry, this guy strikes me as phony, and as someone who is trying way too hard to convince us how “cool” and “relevant” he is. And, most of all he strikes me as a person that is all about publicity, and not too much about substance. In other words, it seems to me he has a PHD in BS.

So, anyone else get that vibe? Or am I just off base here? Because when I look at this
