Re: “North Charleston-based Smithey Ironware aims to become the next great American cookware company

They're stupid expensive. No thank you.

Re: “It’s time to confront the slurs used in our city

Residents have been pissing and moaning to local police and the colleges about student behavior for decades. I hope you don't think it will magically stop because someone hurled a slur at you.

Re: “Commonhouse Aleworks posts "Ask For Angela" codeword signage to help avoid sexual harassment

"Guys aren't typically having to deal with the harassment, so we're not feeling the need to give them the sign," Hanna adds.
If you don't "feel the need" because it doesn't happen often, you're just doing it for the publicity.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

So you live "on a street carved out of a coastal forest in the early 1970s" and you still get the print edition of the daily paper. Please do not lecture me.

Re: “One server's argument for instituting a 20 percent service charge

Now wait just a cotton-picking minute. Two weeks or so ago you were bitching because people assumed that you did something else in addition to your job waiting tables. You were positively apoplectic that someone would think you were less than a grown-assed man because all you did was wait on tables. You berated those who would think that waiting tables really isn't a lifetime career. Now you propose a mandatory 20% tip regardless of YOUR service.
We've come a long ways from " You really did a fabulous job and went above and beyond what was necessary! Here's a reward of some extra bucks" to "You MUST pay me a subsidy regardless of the quality of my service because my evil employer is too cheap"
Go ahead and fight for the mandatory 18-20%. I will eat out less, scratch some restaurants off my list, order less booze and most importantly, not give you an additional dime. You will lose. You won't need another job because: " I’m making about double what we pay public school teachers in this state"
