Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

I think the vast majority of people have worked in f&b, realized it is hell, and decided that they would never ever touch it again unless they had to do it while being in school or working on a slowly building good career. More power to ya if you wanna do that for life, but most people would not be able to come close to fathoming your motivations, and so will ask those questions, naturally.

"The reality is I’m making about double what we pay public school teachers in this state."
And just how far does your pay outstrip the wages of the kitchen staff who make your job possible?

Re: “CofC ranks among Princeton Review’s top colleges, gets nod as ‘Party School’

Don't believe it - Charleston's not friendly enough to be a party town.

Entertaining, enlightening and informative. Well done.

People just need to think before they open their mouths. Myself included....

Only a mere nod after beating out FSU? Bruh, we won, top 15, lets party.

Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

Amen. I have friends who serve by choice. They are making double and triple what their degree in history or marketing would bring them, either teaching or in the marketing field. How about the turnover at the Peninsula Grill? There is none. Someone needs to die before a spot opens up. Why? Because they can actually afford to live downtown very comfortably on what they make. A good server is a highly skilled profession that is not as easy as people seem to think. I always leave a generous tip, I like to be remembered by my servers and bartenders as a friend and not as a cheap asshole. I wish I could of been diplomatic enough to do this but my bad language, bad attitude, short temper and the inability to know when to shut up kept me in the back where I could be amongst compadres. Kudos Philip for making the right choice and will you be graduating soon?

Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

Bravo! Albeit I have to say there are very few restaurants that have the in depth staff that Fig relishes. That is because management is doing there job with training staff to perfection & staff are happy to be a part of this program it seems. I was at Fig a couple of weeks ago & was overwhelmed with our server who could not have delivered any better service. She was an expert on wines, preparation, details of the cooking of certain dishes & knew exactly how long to linger.

So the Nadeau that clung on for a number of years in West Ashley was a figment of my over-active imagination?

Re: “The Agenda: ACT shows 14% college readiness; Graham warming to Trump; Haley campaigning for NC's McCrory

No surprise here on Graham and his "warming" to a tyrant, who is becoming more of a "sheep in wolf's clothing" second-by-second. You know the mantra....support the GOP candidate "tooth and nail" even though he is really standing for the LACK of freedoms, not unlike TSARs of bygone eras.

The GOP states they support freedoms, but their definition doesn't include freedoms for everyone, but only freedoms that support control over certain people's lives:
"Freedom FROM women's rights", "Freedom FROM immigrants", "Freedom FROM the LGBT community", "Freedom FROM pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FROM the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FOR personal and corporate greed". The GOP embraces the straight, rich, caucasian (Hello out there...the GOP is using minorities along with poor and less informed supporters to collect their bounty), christian male that helps to feather their political and financial nests.

Opposite of the spectrum is the "Love thy neighbor" (Jesus' words, not mine) type of freedom supporter.
"Freedom FOR women's rights", "Freedom FOR immigrants", "Freedom FOR the LGBT community", "Freedom FOR pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FOR the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FROM personal and corporate greed".

Re: “What it means to choose a person over a lifestyle

I've had the pleasure of traveling across the US, Latin America, and Europe for business for the past 15 years. My girlfriend yearns for the day that we live in another country for a few years, but in my own way, I feel that I've seen enough of it to satisfy me. Everyone is different. Be yourself, challenge yourself, and question why you are envious of others, but don't ignore what makes you happy because you wonder why you are unlike others around you.

Re: “What it means to choose a person over a lifestyle

People do stuff like travel at different times of their lives - it's like having kids - some do it early some do it late and some don't have any - FB only shows the highlights

Thank you, Smoky Weiner! Thank you for honoring my dear Nik in this beautiful tribute. Nik would have been so very touched, as am I. He was a wonderful soulmate and even better husband. I am eternally grateful.
