Oh but I do, that is part of the problem as wellI am getting up to 13 gallon batches anymore. I have been taking a few gallons and boiling on the kitchen stove, then adding when there is room in the kettle. I really need to start kegging, I have 44 gallons ready to bottle now, not to mention wine
What, you don't have 500 bottles lying around?
Someone on another forum mentioned a lap dance from Gary Glass.....I heard it was Gary Glitter
My wife is a tiny thing who drinks pretty much only my 70+ IBU, 8+% ABV beers. When I brought home a 10%, 100+ IBU IIPA and warned her about it, her response was pretty much "so what?". Now, she's not a heavy drinker, but she likes the flavorful, bitter beers. And many of the women beer drinkers I know around here are like that. So I wouldn't make any gender based decisions. Just get a variety of good beers and you should have something that will cover everyone.
+1 my wife loves the uber hoppy and the uber stouty. hard to pigeonhole what a lady will drink now-a-days.
+10,000Now tell my daughter or me that a pizza delivery driver needs something extra when they're At Least getting state minimum wage and they deliver within 5 miles average? Maybe if they drive like Richard Petty or Dale Earnhardt... then yeh, otherwise their tip was already calculated in and I paid for it already.
Pizza drivers are not paid minimum wage. They get "minimum wage" in the same sense that a waiter or any other tipped employee gets minimum wage. If their tips don't come up to $7.25 an hour *for an entire pay period*, the employer is required to make up the difference.
None of the national chains actually pay the driver the entire "delivery charge." The driver is getting somewhere in the $0.50-$1.00 range per delivery, to subsidize the costs of operating a vehicle. It costs of minimum of about 30 cents a mile to operate a compact car. For the majority of deliveries, if the customer doesn't tip, the driver is effectively paying money out of pocket.
The odds of a late delivery being the driver's fault are generally pretty low.
I agree with glitterbug: all you did was punish someone who has no input in the process and hates the "delivery charge" more than you do. On top of which, you made yourself memorable - in a bad way - to someone who is alone with your food.
Disclosure: I deliver pizza for a living.
No Doubt, that would drive me to the brink of insanity. I love to work outdoors. Sixteen years in the kitchen sucked as well.The thing i would worry about is turning something you love to do into work. I sure hope it works out for you!!
I had an office job for 17 years .... and it SUCKED! I never want to do that again, ever.
