The Art of Tipping

Frugal or cheap, come in with a plan or TIP in the moment. To Ensure Prompt service, should the amount given directly reflect the level of service received? How about a video game life gauge where for each mistake made they lose a percentage of life/TIP, too many mistakes and you just get a piece of paper that says ‘game over’ at the end of the meal. That last one would certainly inspire a sense of urgency, no time like the end of a meal to start passing out public life lessons. Get all the social financial advice you could ever need and so much more in this weeks episode.

Juneteenth…The rules of engagement

Is it necessary to educate oneself on the history of a holiday prior to wishing someone enjoyment of said holiday? I was asked how I felt about ‘non-blacks’ saying happy Juneteenth, which was not an issue that ever entered my mind. It seems there are some who feel in order to say ‘happy insert holiday here’ you must be fully knowledgeable of the holiday and it’s history. I on the other hand feel like a greeting is not an open invitation to a ‘wokeness’ test.

Black Cards Matter

Trump gets hacked, black card info leaked, citizens go on Amazon shopping spree. If only there were a hand held device, connected to the internet, with applications that would allow one to manage such a catastrophe. Unfortunately the President handled this with the same speed and accuracy he has this pandemic, allowing the internet plenty of time to shop at their leisure. While the list of the Presidents short comings is about as long as a Pandemic grocery line he is not alone in his tech ineptitude. Several in his….age group fail to grasp basic functionality of standard devices. Why the disconnect…I try to sort it all out in this episode.
