Annoying Shit: This Week’s Sex Diaries, People Who Think Waiters Seeking Tips Are “Disturbing” Customers

“‘This is not like me,’ I tell myself, making it all seem okay.” So quips our anonymous Transportation Coordinator and the author of the latest installment of Daily Intel’s Sex Diaries. (I never suspected anything could top last week’s Oversexed Ivy Banker Chick!) At least he actually gets some — abeit while dating and cheating on a woman he’s been seeing for a year, who is totes in love with him and who he is just meh about. Except for the sex, duh!

But the diary itself isn’t so terrible when you consider a couple of the congratulatory missives from from one joyous reader: “Also, E is a psycho… sending emails on overcoming depression??? Dude
don’t break up with her, keep her around for a sure thing. She’s a
complete pushover and would fit into your schedule whenever…” Which is rapidly followed by: “Are you kidding? Not saying it back is the best way to ensure she hangs
by your every word. Keep them waiting for what they want most and
they’ll never leave
.” Emphasis added! Hahahahah, I am lulz with gusto because I am quietly dying on the inside.

The commenters are also going a bit nutty over on Frank Bruni’s Diner’s Journal blog, where everyone is trying to decide whether the practice of tipping at restaurants should be considered obscelete — particularly in light of foreign patrons who claim to be clueless about the whole long-running “we tip for service in the United States” policy. Among the verbal smacks rounded up by Grub Street: “Confront your Boss to pay you real wages, stop disturbing your
customers, who have already left legal tips, and get a real job!”

How HELPFUL. Yes, just get a real job! It’s not like it’s difficult to do that these days, what with $700 billion in taxpayer funds potentially being fronted for some rich blowhards’ shitty gamble. Gold stars for everyone.
