My wife and I are both in the habit of tipping approx 5-6 dollars on a 30 dollar tab. We are very blessed to be able to do so. We frequent the same restaurants a lot and even make a point to tip extra to our favorite waitresses. On the other side of that, last Christmas I stopped at a Sonic for a drink and tipped the young lady the remainder of a 20. She took it from me and walked away without a word said. No thank you, Merry Christmas, nothing. Called a young man back to the truck there once also and asked him if he was still in school. He said yes so I gave him a 50. He was very grateful and was also one of the friendliest and by far the best fast food server we had ever encountered. A lot has to do with the attitude and Im just guessing that since you made a point to complain on here, that maybe either your attitude or quality of service to your customers may be the reason for the poor tipping.

How was the Co-op supposed to know that the employee had a weapon in his vehicle. Im sure that somewhere in their employee handbook it tells them they are prohibited from having firearms at work. To think that the co-op shuld be responsible for an employees actions that were surely prohibited in their handbook is crazy. Another example of trying to find someone with money to blame. What about holding the dummy responsible that pulled the trigger on a loaded weapon at work?
So how does the disposal well theory work here. There is not a disposal well in that area. If you look at a historical map of earthquakes in Texas the Pleasenton area has had them all along. I believe its just a natural occurance and its just easiest for everyone to blame the drilling/fracking. I think all of the prducers in the area need to do a better job of educating the public to exactly what they do.
I would never be able to get anywhere or get anything done if I couldn't talk on the phone and drive. Been doing it daily for about the last 500,000 miles. I think I'm kinda practiced up. I have seen some folks that can't do it. Most of them have a hard time with just the driving.
I wonder why there's no mention of a reward for it's return. Usually when something like this happens you offer more then they can get at a pawn shop and poof it appears. I'd give 500 to see this man get his ring back.
Im all for disciplining a child but he went way too far. I never got a spanking I didn't deserve but never got one like that. I'd like to have 5 minutes alone to talk to this guy.
That's awful nice of us as we haven't given any raises in two years and cut 401k match and longevity bonus when the economy tanked. We need to align more with private pay/benefits or we will continue losing qualified and trained county employees to private industry. I wonder how many county employees are headed to Caterpillar and the oilfield.
"Miguel Cordoba was taken to Citizens Medical Center after he suffered a broken neck and back in a wreck Thursday evening". "Miguel Cordoba is being kept overnight for evaluation". Prayers for Mr. Cordoba and his family and did anyone at the Advocate read this before publishing? He has a broken back and neck......... I hope they keep him longer than "overnight".
Prayers to the family.
what was he doing crossing Navarro with a dumpster on the front like that anyway?
