“Not to mention the potholes all along Regent St. the Westmorland bridge, the little bridge on Riverside Drive by Cannons Cross pub, York St. and I could go on and on. For being the capitol of New Brunswick, Fredericton has some of the worst streets and roads I have ever seen.”
“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.”

“most of the people that get tips get around 2 per hour.”
“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?”

“I worked for years in a kitchen, not getting tips. my answer YES. you and i get paid carp, but they get paid less than that.”

“Here is a tip: Stop being jealous of what others get and be happy with what you have and remember your base salary isn't less then minimum wage to start.”
“Is it a prescription or over the counter? I usually take a couple of 'gravol' as I can get 100 of the Life brand at Shoppers Drugmart for $10. I find it works quite well but I'm always open to trying something else.”

“iPhones are mostly owned by people that lack any understanding of technology, hence the ready out of the box and plug and play aspects of the device. To put it succinctly, they're idiot proof. With that being said I work in a call center for a large cell phone company and I have to help a lot of these idiots with their iPhones everyday. It's simply a brand that carries status. That's all.”

“None of this bothers me as much as the Canadians that go on cross border shopping trips every weekend. Way to not support your own economy.”

“When Canada stops charging us Canadians 20% or more for the same item in the US, then I will do all my shopping here. Even lumber made here in Canada and sold in the US is much cheaper there. A 3/4" sheet of pressure treated plywood is $50 here and $28 in the US and it is made in Canada. Why is that?”

“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
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?

“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.”
