    Granted, I haven’t seen all of Star Wars (which I recently started correcting), but I don’t understand why there would be a question. Star Wars doesn’t have Captain Picard.

    After working with smart phones for close to two years, I don’t think I’ve found anything that won’t come off a screen with rubbing alcohol and a lens cloth.

    It’s not a decision, is it? There’s a correct answer, and the answer is a fact. That’s like asking who decides if Earth is flat or round. (Although someone could certainly say the creator of Earth decided, but that’s beside the point.) There’s a right answer, even if we can’t prove which one is right.

    To engineers, like Dilbert, the glass isn’t half full or half empty, it’s just twice as big as it needs to be. I think we can safely say the canyon is smaller than it needs to be.

    I learned the definition of the word invincible because it was in my Game Genie book. That and infinite. See? Video games are educational!

    Jason mentioned football uniforms.

    I like both! It’s easier to eat for breakfast with milk, but it makes a better snack when it’s dry. Of course, it depends on the cereal, too.

    In my opinion, the best option would be to do exactly that, to the point where it would remove the need for tips. Preferably, smaller tips would still be optional. (Maybe 5% for excellent service?) This would cost the restaurant more money, which they would pass on to the customer. This is fine for customers who normally pay tips, because it should roughly equal out. But the restaurant would look more expensive on the menu, which would still drive customers away. Plus, it would increase payroll taxes for restaurants whose employees don’t report their cash tips. (This is illegal, but many restaurants encourage their servers to do it.) So, in a perfect world, this would be a great solution, but sadly, it wouldn’t work in practice unless it was made law.

    Ah, but you’re assuming people are decent. That tells me you’re a decent person, which is awesome, but you’d be surprised how many people go into a restaurant planning not to tip, or to tip very little. Many of them will even go to the same restaurant regularly and never leave a decent tip. Hopefully, other generous customers will make up for it, but this isn’t always the case. And when you’re working paycheck-to-paycheck, you can’t afford a bad day.

    Yes, they know what the pay is when they take the job, but if they can’t find anything better, they have to take what they can get.

    That being said, I’m pretty sure nobody would argue that what the waiter in this strip did was appropriate. Servers should be decent people too.

    Fair disclosure: My husband is a server with a master’s degree, and I just got out of a several-year retail job to work in a warehouse, and I’m working on my master’s, so my view is admittedly fairly one-sided.

    I’ve knitted tiny sweaters (as ornaments), but I can honestly say I’ve never used floss!
