A Couple’s Controversial Tipping Style Is Spreading on Facebook

A Couple’s Controversial Tipping Style Is Spreading on Facebook

If you’ve ever worked at a restaurant, this is going to send you into a rage. And possibly trigger some tipping-related PTSD.

A guy recently posted on Facebook about the new strategy he and his wife use to TIP when they go to restaurants.

They put five $1 bills on the table, and every time their server does something they don’t like, they remove one bill without saying a word. Then whatever is left at the end is the tip. Quote, “You will receive the best service of your life.”

The post is getting a LOT of responses from people, and they seem much more negative than positive. Words like “disrespectful,” “tactless,” and “I hope you like the taste of spit in your food” seem to come up the most often.

1. Purple Skittles aren’t grape in other countries. In England and Australia they’re black currant.

2. It’s illegal to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night. And France actually catches people when they post them on social media.

3. A Hungarian fencer named Pal Szekeres won a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics. Then he became disabled after a bus accident, and went on to win six medals in wheelchair fencing at the Paralympics.

If people on Instagram become as annoying as people on Facebook, I’m going to have to go all-in on Snapchat.  And I REALLY get creeped out by pictures that use face swap, so that’s a worst-case scenario.

A new survey found the 10 most obnoxious photos people post on Instagram.  Check ’em out . . .

  1.  Couples kissing or cuddling.
  2.  Pictures that show off how good their body is.
  3.  Vacation photos that are just there to make other people jealous.
  4.  Any picture with friends tagged “#squadgoals.”  It’s an athletic workout thing.
  5. A beach photo of just your legs, where they look like two hotdogs.
  6. The hashtag “#nofilter,” to brag about how good you look unedited.
  7. Pictures by the pool.
  8. Pictures at a music festival.
  9. Sunset silhouettes.
  10. Sightseeing photos.

Are Facebook Posts About the Election Pointless?

Are Facebook Posts About the Election Pointless?

Political discord tends to lead to disharmony in relationships.

Does posting about the election on Facebook actually do anything? Or are you just wasting everyone’s time? Well, a website recently polled 10,000 users, and about 90% said they’ve NEVER changed their opinion because of something a friend posted.

That includes 94% of Republicans, 92% of Democrats, and 85% of Independents. But apparently that means about 10% of people HAVE. So you can keep fighting the good fight I guess?

Here are four more stats from the survey that are kind of interesting . . .

  1.  Republicans are slightly more likely to post about politics than Democrats. 39% compared to 34%. And 26% of Independents said they’ve done it.
  2.  Republicans are also slightly more likely to JUDGE someone for it. 61% said they judge people based on the political stuff they post, compared to 54% of Democrats, and 34% of Independents.
  3.  Democrats are more likely to UNFRIEND you for something you post. 18% said they’ve done it, compared to 12% of Republicans, and 9% of Independents.
  4.  Most of us agree Facebook isn’t the best place to discuss the election. Only 36% of Republicans said it’s “appropriate” to post about politics, compared to 31% of Democrats, and just 21% of Independents.

10 Most Annoying Facebook Friends

10 Most Annoying Facebook Friends

We found a list online of the most annoying types of Facebook friends. And it’s pretty good, because they left off the really obvious ones like the friends who post too many photos of their kids.

Here’s the top ten . . .

  1. The friend who always falls for fake news stories. It happens a lot right now because of the election. A lot of the political memes you see are filled with made-up facts.
  2. The friend who constantly endorses the lame pyramid scheme they bought into. A lot of them tend to be health and fitness related.
  3. The friend who changes their profile picture too much. Once or twice a month is fine, but five times a month is a little much.
  4. The friend who uses GoFundMe to fund everything. Like for vacations and other stuff they should pay for themselves.
  5. The friend who’s intentionally vague about good news. They post something like, “Just got huge news, stay tuned.” So you have no idea what they’re talking about, but you feel obligated to like it anyway.
  6. The friend you don’t know very well, who starts liking photos you posted five years ago. So you suddenly feel like you’re being stalked. And it’s even worse if you’re a woman and it’s a BIKINI shot from five years ago.
  7. The friend who has an opinion about everything. Any time you post something that’s even slightly controversial, they’re all over it.
  8. The friend who posts pointless hashtags. Like a photo of a sunset, with five hashtags that say things like “blessed” and “beautiful.”
  9. The friend who asks questions on Facebook when they could just google the answer. Like asking for restaurant suggestions instead of checking Yelp.
  10. The friend who invites you to events on the other side of the country. They’re just inviting everyone they know to save time.
