Almond/cashew milk is useless stomach filler. You might as well drink water.
It has more nutrients than water.

It's not almond milk. It's almond juice. But they call it "almond milk" because if you say "almond juice," your gag reflex automatically kicks in.

Not for those of us who are lactose intolerant and still want to be able to enjoy things that require "milk" as an ingredient.

That’s the exception I make. That said, both my parents are lactose intolerant but dislike cashew milk.

Better than Soy "Milk", which is as well know...




Yes, yes, I know that's skim milk - but any excuse to use a Ron Swanson gif.......

Waiters/waitresses that don't write down your order should be tarred and feathered when your order comes out incorrect.

Speaking of waiters/waitresses, can we address how stupid the entire "tipping" system is, particularly in North America?  Why does one industry get away with being able to pay their employees less and charging their customers more?  Not to mention the fact that only legitimate "restaurants" expect tips, so fast food workers and other people in customer service tend to get completely screwed.  Fast food is already so much cheaper, and when you factor in the fact that you're expected to pay extra for restaurant food that's already overpriced, it's basically influencing people to eat fast food instead.  It's only feeding America's obesity problem.

Fair point.  The rule of thumb is that if you're picking up your food you don't have to tip, but if someone brings it to you, you do.  I agree that its completely stupid.  But if you don't tip, you're kind of punishing your servers because they get such low pay.  So, in Canada is there no tipping whatsoever?

Yeah, service industry employees get paid less than minimum wage ($3-5 an hour) while fast food workers get minimum.

There still is tipping in Canada, but all restaurant workers must make at least minimum wage - which is 14.00 an hour and the same amount as every fast food employee.  So servers basically get as much as everybody else, plus tips.  It kind of kills your motivation to help them out as much.

I think the entire system needs to just be abolished...paying less than minimum needs to be made illegal and tipping should just stop altogether.  If someone isn't going to put in the effort to provide good customer service, they should be fired.  They're just doing their job, they should be paid just like everybody else.

Well that's the rub.  If there is no incentive for them to provide "extra good" service and just do the bare minimum, then you're probably gonna get a bunch of mediocre service.

If I walk into a store, ask one of the employees for help and they don't put in any effort to do so, then I'm going to go somewhere else.  The store will lose money, and the employee would potentially be chewed out or even fired for being responsible for losing customers.  If the employee does help me, then I'm probably going to keep going back to that store - but that employee isn't going to get any extra money for it, they're just going to keep their job.  The only reason that restaurants get away with a different system is because restaurant owners managed to find a way to pay their employees less by making it a norm to "tip", which is actually pretty retarded.  If a place is providing mediocre service, then I'm just going to spend my money elsewhere.  If they want to add tips to the price of the meal and state it on the menu then that's fine, but the price that's shown is the price that I want to pay.  Tipping is essentially supporting a corrupt system of restaurants fuсking over both the customer and the employees.  I'm not saying that I never do it because I understand that it's not the fault of the employees themselves (more in the states than in Canada because they actually get paid less there) but I really think it's fuсked up...people don't tip in the majority of the world, and when I try to explain the logic of it to foreigners I really can't because it makes zero sense.

His entire schtick is "fatty fall down".  He's the male version of Melissa McCarthy.

“Latinx” is among the most cringe inducing descriptor terms and I may not be able to take the people who use it unironically seriously.
