• Can anyone tell me how to make a pie crust from Jiffy Baking Mix?

    I have the large box, NOT the pie crust mix. The directions are not on the box, and when I try googling it, I get "prepared as stated on package of pie crust mix". Please don't tell me to make a real pie crust, because I don't have real butter.

  • What can I use to cover a tattoo for work?

    It's a small red rose on the back of my neck. Uniform shirt won't cover it. Not a bandage. For all you haters out there, I've had it for 27 years in the same industry and have NEVER been asked to cover it. I need the job, and the tat is a deal breaker.

  • Do you think tattoos are becoming more mainstream in the hospitality industry?

    I recently started a job at a Doubletree (branch of Hilton) and noticed a girl that had tattoos down to her wrists. I asked her if she got the tats before or after she was hired. She said "after, but I'm supposed to keep them covered". Her sleeves were rolled up- I saw them. No one said a word. I also worked with a guy last weekend... show more

I also worked with a guy last weekend that had "gangsta" tats up & down his arms, including letters on his fingers. He was a SERVER, not a bus or runner. We also went to Office Max & the cashier was a young, cute girl with tats on the insides of both wrists (wearing short sleeves). So do you think people are being hired more on ability, availability & personality rather than appearance and ink?

    They are HUGE Perdue bone-in, skin on. I'm in Chicago, IL USA and it's already 70 degrees out- I don't want my AC competing with the oven.

  • Can I prep potatoes now for mashed potatoes later?

    I have the rest of dinner in the crock pot, and would like to be able to walk in the door & turn the potatoes on. Is it safe to do that, if I leave them in water on top of the stove? Will they oxidize? I'm talking about roughly 4 hours of them sitting.

They were amazing: served his food, wrapped his food, stayed on top of everything. The bartender was the owner, whe also SERVED drinks when Carl was busy (pretty cool, right?) I overheard him tell a girl last night that he rang $600 in sales. Assuming he got 18%, that is $108 in tips, right? And if he tips out 6% of sales, that's $36 which means he walks with $72. Does that sound right to you? Basically he's tipping bus, bar & expo.
