Well, I work for tip wages for less than part time, and people are stingy at smaller restaurants, for some reason. It's a hassle. I had to drop out of college because money got so tight, which was a bit of a bummer. I still live in the town my ex-school is so that I can be with my ladyfriend though.
I just try not to generalize in serious conversation. I fail at that a lot though :P
