I dunno, maybe she's just insecure because of having a shitty childhood.
well, her fater did leave her alone in, i think chicago, i think she was 10 or 12, and went to work out in washington state. jobs were few and that was the only place he could get good work after some accusation she was left in someones care, until money could be sent to ship he out to WA, but she ran away before that happened.
then, she tried to ride a train out to WA, there was a bad accident, and she was feared dead. she survived, she picked a pet canine and hooked up with a gang, broke some laws, got thrown in the clink, escaped again, and finally got out west with the aid of a homeless man.
but she did catch up with her dad, things probably improved for her after that, but it certainly was a rough childhood. so cut her some slack.

"i disagree, the tip is based on the performance of the entire store, if the cooks do a bad job"

I am in *total* disagreement with that, but maybe things have changed since I or anyone I know has waited tables. How I have seen it work, is the cooks in the back get a full salary. They didn't get cashed out with tips from the wait staff. If your food doesn't taste good, your waiter had *zero* influence on that, and couldn't do anything about if they did. Basically not tipping for poor food, was punishing the waiter for something out of their control. But again, maybe I am out of touch with the way things work.


" like if you dont tip because of a so so performance, they will starve, just means they may only make 15 bucks that hour instead of 20 or 25."

You must have been an awesome server, in a nice restaurant, who had customers who tipped, and tipped well.
I guess it depends on what restaurants. I do not think its fair to say that all wait staff are typically making 20-25$ an hour consistently (That would be $40,000- $50,000). Wait staff I have known were more in the $25,000-$39,000 range, but clearly this is going to depending on the type of restaurant. During peak hours, sure you might make $25 an hour or more. Then you have all those hours in the morning and other times where maybe no one is in your section for an hour. Then you have a ton of people who don't tip at all. It throws the average off *real* quick.

So yeah, if you work in a nicer restaurant, get to work all the weekend shifts, can avoid the customers who don't tip, and avoid all the slow shifts, I am sure you are doing great as a waiter.

Yeah I think it does depend more on the restaurant. If it's nice and fancy (think Masa or Per Se) then you will expect to get tipped more. But then again, the whole eating experience at a place like Masa is completely different than what we usually do.

About listening to the show and checking the forums at work: I have a boss to tell me what to do, I dont need another one telling me to go to work. especcially a guy who doesn't have a job. I don't mind porn on the forum, just make it good porn, and not bad photoshopped images.

I think someone owes corey an apology, because he got both games correct. Steeler should win the superbowl, what is the point spread, and to over under for the game.

Tip, tip tip. just tip 20% and go on with life.

I didn't mind Hari, but that guy with her was a fucking tool.

Thanks Mike.

Here's what it looks like so far, even though it is still fairly early:
Well, an average forcasted score at least: Seahawks 22.7 Steelers 23.9

Angry Hori (get over yourself)

I think this needs to be said because it was pissing me off the entire time I was listening to the show. I don't know how this girls head even fit in the door to get into your house. I know she's keith/chemda's friend, but what the fuck? She said she was an actress about 47,000 times...great, you're an "actress" in New York, I get it, you were in a movie, awesome, you have boobs, great. I don't give a shit how hot she is, I can't see her through my car radio...all she did was tell shitty stories about Johnny Knoxville hitting on her, or how she is the fucking hippest thing to ever come to New York, which reminds me: If you are so "indy" that you won't even get a coffee at Starbucks, why are you trying to "make it" in the most corporate industry there is? Give me a fucking break, get over yourself, let Keith and Chemda do the talking on the show. She was the worst and you can't throw a rock without hitting 10 girls just like her out here in AZ. The guy had some funny things to say and at least knew when to shut it. In conclusion, please refrain from having egomaniac "actresses" on the show. P.S. she is pretty hot.

Is it weird to be picked on before the age of 6? I was.

I like the shows with guests on more than the vanilla Keith and Chemda stuff these days. You guys have the format and production down so well right now but there's only so much past experience you can recount before you run out of shit to talk about if you're aiming for a show every day. Never lose Patrice, I have a crush on her intonation.

usually, tough childhoods build charactor and allow the child who is shat upon by their peers to come away with unique, well adjusted - almost enlightened view on life. and then...there's hari. i had to actually force myself to finish this episode. keith and chemda as always were a pleasure to listen to. jonah was even fun. but hari...my god! we get it hari, you have an opinion! i guess i can understand, now, why some people get picked on in school. and who cares if she has a great body and big tits. there are millions upon millions of women out there w/ hotter bodies and just as good of tits who have what i like to call a "soul".

i don't know. maybe she was just feeling a little extra saucy that night and came across as abrasive...but damn. i'd give her one more try because everyone should not have to be judged on first impressions but i will say that it was a very long 2 hours.

I agree with the general sentiment that these were not the best of guests.
Part of it is probably that the show was so long that it was enough
already. especially with the shameless plugs. Also, did Jonah squeeze in
a family guy joke or two?

But either way, thanks for making my morning commute entertaining.
