Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

Also, who made this decision that we are 'expected' to tip. They get paid over minimum wage it sounds like. I consider myself 'expected' to tip waitresses, cab drivers and food delivery folks. I consider most of the rest optional, including maid [more]

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

That's sort of weird to me. Why is a nonprofit working with Marriot to get hotel visitors to tip? I have no problems with the hotel equivalent of a tip jar, but lots of jobs are hard work, low pay and nobody tips for them.

Let's see. [more]

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

It's definitely demanding grunt labor. I applaud Marriott's experiment.

I don't. It's Marriott's responsibility to pay their employees a fair wage, not mine. Why should I subsidize Marriott's labor rates? I'm all for tipping for [more]

Re: Dressing up -- shoes

As others have said, a couple hours into the wedding many people are barefoot because their dress shoes are really uncomfortable.

Re: Cell Phone for Europe trip?

The plot sickens. I called T-Mobile to inquire if I need my phone unlocked for a new SIM in Germany. After learning what an IMEI number is, and how to find it, the guy says my phone was not purchased from T-Mobile, according to their records. He [more]

Re: Cell Phone for Europe trip?

One of the reasons for calling back here is to pick up messages from the answering machine. Kinda rules Skype out. I will use Skype to call my Italian friend (He pronounces it Sky-Pe'). Calls from customers may need answers.

Re: Millennial crybabies in the workplace

I have been working with one engineer chick and trying to mentor her in office politics a bit over the past year. She is an extremely talented engineer, but is clueless about the important stuff, like knowing how and when to play people for your [more]

Re: Attic Fan Questions

We have an attic fan similar to the first one you listed (not solar though) and it definitely helps bring the upstairs temperature down. However, it doesn't bring it down enough to not have to run the upstairs AC.

What now?

I find myself being increasingly weary/disenchanted with the fast lane. But what do I do about it? I keep fantasizing about taking a 'gap year' of sorts but my fear is that once I get off the hamster wheel, I won't be able to get back on. While [more]
