    Just add 20% to the menu price when ordering and you know exactly what you need to pay.
  2. More of our fiver fire Photos

    I know it's a terrible experience that I pray I never have to go through. If you could roll back the clock, what would you have done differently from a financial perspective? ie was your insurance adequate to cover your losses? Would you have added other coverage? Different insurance? I guess I'm asking for a "lessons learned" from a financial perspective.

    You do realize that all the higher min wage means is that the restaurant owner reports more of their tips as wages to make sure he shows they made at least the new min wage amount. There is no requirement that the restaurant owner pays the wait staff anything, only that they receive at least min wage from somewhere. If more feel as you do, the wait staff will really take it in the shorts with no effect on the restaurant owner.
  4. Hauling our motorcycle

    Why would you have to register any hitch attachment??
  5. Escapees Roadside Assistance

    They do. How do you think rates are set?

  10. Ac freon leak

    Find the leak before dumping freon. Borrow a sniffer from the local auto parts store and start following lines. Pulling a vacuum and recharging a leaking system accomplishes nothing but wallet lightening.
  11. Bet it drops to 10 miles if you add air conditioning!

    Seem that the average here is rather parsimonious. The kitchen staff are the lowest paid workers and the hardest workers. The wait staff at a decent restaurant can average $50K/year. (Head over to Quora - there are many discussions about this from waiters and waitresses.) The kitchen staff is minimum wage plus a small % of the tips not left in cash. So why wouldn't you leave a full tip for take-out - The kitchen staff worked just as hard. Doing take-out, the only thing you missed out on was someone refilling your glass and asking if everything is OK!
  14. Gas Buddy??

    Get a BlueBird (American Expres) card. They're free (No annual fee nor any monthly fees - they are totally free and don't erode any monthly ballance) The card can be funded from many sources (Walmart, Walgreens etc. where you can fund the card with cash or from another debit card) The best part is they give you an Account /Routing at American Express Centurion Bank you can use for direct deposits.
  15. Search results always have a sort function by "price". Have yet to see a sort function by "customer service". When people stop buying on low price, there will be money available to support customer service.
