“I am grateful for what I have and I'm not the least bit jealous of what others have. Thanks for your self righteous comment though. Great answer to the question I asked. Also how could my base salary, which is really a wage not salary, be less than minimum wage? It's called minimum wage for a reason.”

“"Also how could my base salary, which is really a wage not salary, be less than minimum wage? It's called minimum wage for a reason."

There is a loophole in the law which allows employers the ability to pay LESS than min wage for food service type employees. There's your answer.”

“But the delivery people don't make $11/hour without tips like you do! I have also worked in a call center at a similar wage and I still tipped delivery/service peeps. I just didn't get delivery or eat out as much. Really not that hard to do.”

“and servers and delivery persons are not paid minimum wage. Their minimum is lower in the expectation of tips.”

“I work in a call center for $11/hr where I provide excellent customer service and I get no other compensation for my efforts other than my wage. No tips, no sales incentive, no commission. To top it off we all just had our hours reduced to 32 hours a week. Now, with that being said, should I still be expected to tip another service person with what little I'm making?”

“As a single 43 year old man, who watches porn daily, should I be considered an anomaly to the age standard quoted in the article or is it that I'm just young at heart? :)”

elsita woods on Jan 19, 2013 at 11:26:50

“Dear Optimus,

At 43 you are IN your prime. (Don't believe the nonsense about declining sexually after 19 -- a marketing ploy to sell "spiffy stiffy" drugs to men who don't need them.)
In your age-range men are more likely to be able to "optimally" pleasure a partner, and to be pleasured.
You're single and spend your time watching porn? Land sakes, man; get out there and find a life. If you have a reasonable disposition (and are willing to moderate your porn habit) there are lots of wonderful people seeking "a few good men."
In other words, "get real"---catch my drift?

Cheers!”

“How many of us copied cassette tapes back in the 80's? Should we all get fined as well? Should I just turn myself in before they come looking for me? Is there really a difference between that and what is happening now? I ask you. (pause for dramatic effect) I ask you.”

Mark D Webster on Jan 12, 2013 at 11:09:37

“Well, you asked.

It wasn't right then, and it isn't right now.
Only difference between then and now is that the copying is track-able.

If you'd sent a letter to the publishers after copying a cassette tape "back in the 80's", then I'm sure they would be equally ready to squeeze their extra five bucks out of you.

Your logic and justification for theft is a bit disturbing.”
