Confessions Of A Bartender: 10 Things Every Bartender Absolutely Hates About You

Confessions Of A Bartender: 10 Things Every Bartender Absolutely Hates About You

Commented Feb 21, 2013 at 22:31:12 in Women

“When I order a beer at a bar and it takes a bartender all of 30 seconds to open or pour it and set it down in front of me, how is that worth 20%? Also consider that non-investment bankers and other normally or poorly paid folk like to go out for a drink and after paying the tab they don't have a lot more to subsidize the salary of the poorly paid bartender.”

“Then don't drink as much and leave enough money to tip the person who served you properly (assuming they deserved it by doing their job politely and properly). Or get a 6 pack and stay home.”

“This was a great, thoughtful segment, and not just a hit piece from a liberal leaning network against Fox. The top 12 cable news shows are ALL Fox shows (Maddow is the first non-Fox in the top 20 at No. 13, I believe), and an awful lot of Americans are getting news from this hugely biased but enormously successful propaganda outlet. The Daily Show hits them pretty hard, but other media need to step up the pressure on Fox to expose not only the lies but the devious and insidious manner in which they've infiltrated the public discourse.”

“The viewers of Faux won't care. They are brainwashed folks who go there for validation of their twisted views, not for knowledge.”

Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online 'Has To Go Away'

Commented Jul 27, 2011 at 16:27:46 in Technology

“She's absolutely correct. As a newspaper editor who's spent ridiculous, countless hours trying to police online comments, the one and only thing that makes sense is a real-name convention of some sort.”

klatica on Jul 27, 2011 at 16:41:55

“"Police online comments?" Like policing speech? What for and on what grounds? Putting our real names everywhere we go online is like asking us to always wear a prominent display of our first and last names everywhere we go in public. Sheesh. We walk around anonymously all the time. Why should the internet be different?”

kclz2420 on Jul 27, 2011 at 16:41:14

“That's a terrible reason to force individuals in the modern forum of the internet to abandon their anonymity - because it makes your job more difficult. Sorry free dialogue is an inconvenience to the hall monitors everywhere.”

Mahers Office on Jul 27, 2011 at 16:35:26

“Way to ruin any logic you had. WHy mention you are with the media? That takes your credibility to the negative numbers, signifying that your perspective would be frought with deception, rather than just a person's opinion, which you are entitled to. Media cannot comment on media. That is an invalid argument.”

nana41 on Jul 27, 2011 at 16:31:35

“I doubt if using a persons real name will stop anything besides are you going to require them to show you proof that they really are who they say they are ? Its only a data entry line people can type in whatever they feel inclined to that will stop nothing.. If you have to monitor everyone's comments then its not worth having the site up..”

MagicSwordKing on Jul 27, 2011 at 16:31:00

“Or, you know, a simple user-moderation program that allows commentary to be flagged and buried by the readers so a community self-moderates, but no, you're right, let's burn our rights to privacy at the altar of Zuckerberg because it is a mild inconvenience for you, personally.

Of all the reasons to agree or disagree, "Moderating a forum is too hard for me" is the weakest and most asinine rationalization of tearing up online privacy yet.”

“That will ensure that dissent is swiftly put down if not silenced altogether.

No thank you.”

“Newspaper editor. Don't worry papers are obsolete so you will be unemployed soon and wont have to police online comments anymore.”

“Not a huge fan of chains but in our rural-resort corner of Colorado Borders is the best bookstore we've ever had. Would hate to see it fold.”

Easten Cueva on Jan 22, 2011 at 21:53:45

“"Rural-reso­rt corner" pretty describes living here in Hawaii. Yeah I live in a small town and our Borders closed last year. It was where the more academic of our community hung out after work. There really is no other book store around now, so I really do feel like that literary-minded part of our community has no where sorta cool to go There is still the public library, but they don't serve coffee there.”

“Photo really looks like people alpine skiing a traverse.”

quacque on Dec 22, 2010 at 09:08:41

“They're backcountry skiing, either on Randonee gear or telemark gear. It's not the same as XC skiing, but it's not alpine, either, rather a mix of both.”

“My son is now 16 and we live close enough now that no planes are involved. But when he was in Denver and I was in LA, I always flew out to get him and he never flew alone because his mother simply wouldn't allow it. Cost me a fortune and a lot of time but I guess it saved me from things like this!”

Books: The Watering Hole

Commented Oct 6, 2009 at 08:11:11 in Books

“Great idea. One of the coolest things a site like HuffPost can do is help bring exposure to the many good e-books that are out there. Many authors like myself, frustrated with the traditional publishing process, are simply going online. Some charge, most don't. Some of it's crap, some of it's pretty good. Bringing attention to some of the latest popular posts on sites like scribd.com, feedbooks, smashbooks and others would be a great service to e-authors. The reality is that once we post, we've little idea how to market and bring eyes to our work. You can publish on Kindle, but how do you alert Kindle readers to the existence of your novel? Help us out, HuffPost!”

Paula Krapf on Oct 7, 2009 at 13:15:03

“If you want to notify Kindle readers, visit the Kindle groups online. Yahoo has at least one (groups.yahoo.com) and there is another at kindleboards.com. There is also a Kindle discussion group on Amazon. If you Google 'Kindle groups' and 'Kindle blogs' you'll find other sites. Some authors even offer a Kindle freebie for a short period of time, and the Kindle groups always publicize those. Good luck!”
