“So here’s the tip about the tip. Why not tip the laborers and minimum wagers? Like the Home Depot guy. He’s going to get a hernia or die trying to pull the tankless water heater from the top of the aisle rack. Next time you’re at the Taco Bell, if the kid taking your order is nice, tell him to keep the change. You just got nine tacos and a large Pepsi for $3.89. Give him a five and walk away. He’ll feel great because it’s unexpected, and you’ll feel good too.” (220)
i wish it was all this sweet. but i guess that’s the hook, right? the man show is like the hooker with the heart of gold-under that crispy candy coating is a soft peanut butter centre. i was listening to him guest on mark maron’s podcast, and he stated some of the sentiments that he has here. some of the arguments are bang on, others are brushed over way too easily, but it’s the michael moore complex-let’s be as obnoxious as we can, and maybe someone will listen and think about it independently. one of my least favorite american ways. oh-and he claims that he’s never read a book, but i can usually tell. perhaps it’s a comedian thing, like tracy morgan, or like maestro, his wife was more than just they typist here.
