The cop wrote me a ticket for loitering and left. You bet my feelings were hurt I told my father I had to choose my mother over him to live with when they divorced because I was marrying Steven Douglas Smith as soon as I finished high school. To my daddy, this was a slap in the Keystone light the glue holding this 2020 shitshow together shirt Apart from…,I will love this face because he was not picked and considered Steven beneath me. I was disowned for 33 years. The truth was I would not let him know I was knocked up for fear he’d arrange with the courts for me to be sent again to another detention facility even worse than the last. I was living in Spain, where tipping is neither expected nor common because most waiters are professionals and make a living wage. However, we lived in Malaga, on the costa del sol, and many waiters there were poorly paid immigrants. I always left these hard-working guys a tip. One lunch companion, a middle-class Brit, habitually tried to scoop up the money and pocket it. I had to either defend my right to leave a gratuity or ignore her theft. I chose the former. She was totally Unembarrassed, which shocked me. Once she actually went back to the table to steal the tip after we had left the restaurant. After that, I always handed money to the waiter. Funny thing is, she seemed totally infused at being caught. I was in my early 20s and had been hospitalized with a high fever and pericardial effusion. They ended up only paying me like $200, though, which wasn’t much for all I’d done. The other experience was before this one, and it’s how I got this job. Her friend was a lady I babysat for all the time, and I’d watched her kids for full days over the summer for years. They decided to go to the beach for three weeks, and they brought me along as their sitter. I got a free vacation with a really nice family, and all I had to do was babysit when they went out at night. It was super easy. They even paid for my meals when we went to restaurants. It was funny when they picked me up to leave (at 4 am!!), though. I only had one small suitcase for three weeks, but she had her van loaded up with plastic dressers full of clothes for herself and her three sons and husband. There was a washer. dryer at the place, so I packed light, plus I was one of four, so I always had to pack light.
