If it wasn't Christmastime I could MAYBE have a shot at guessing, but I've ordered a ton of stuff lately. SMH

If you're not "deeply sorry" until you've been caught, called out and publicly accused....you're not deeply sorry. Deeply sorry people apologize before any of that other shit happens.

Just got an email telling me my order has been shipped. No company name. No product information. No tracking number. No clue wtf this references. Thanks for the update.

The Italian restaurant I ate at last night gave me my leftovers in an old school cardboard Chinese takeout box so now I'm compelled to eat them cold, with chopsticks.

Ah, okay. NOW I understand. I have several food allergies and several "can't overdo it" foods like that. Pineapple and mango make my mouth like that if I eat more than a few bites.

LOL, they sound lovely. And no, I don't think I met them. I met your nicer neighbors.

This is the kind of shit new writers have to wade through constantly and it is the opposite of helpful.

This is why you should never take any "expert" advice about writing as fact. Adjectives and adverbs, used properly, add to a story. If you delete them all, as this person suggests, you'll be left with a boring, unappealing piece of work.

If I'm two chapters into a romance, have met 7000 secondary characters and still have no clue when the love interest is going to be introduced, I'm gone.

Actual exchange during Sat night rush. Me: where's my duck for table 24? Chef: I got your duck right here babe. Show me your tits. Me: give me the damn duck Chef: Come on, just one While this was happening the sous chef, who overheard, finished plating the duck and gave it to me.

I had good experiences with male wait staff, busboys and other "underlings" but male managers, chef, owner dudes? Disgusting creatures. Every last one of them. Leering, touching AND temper tantrums to boot. Bleh.

Pretty sure this is EXACTLY why you put Christmas lights on palm trees. But maybe that's just me.

I worked in upscale restaurants and catering facilities all through college and grad school. Never met a single head chef who wasn't inappropriate. Not one.

I was just about to make the same recommendation. Most kids that age will find them addictive.

WTF kind of argument is this? Parties aren't fun unless harassment and assaults are part of the festivities. Okay then....

Just misread "organizing" as "orgasming" At least my priorities are clearly in order.
