One lunch companion, a middle-class Brit, habitually tried to scoop up the Buccaneers super bowl champions bound shirt in addition I really love this 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. I had a role where I was a combination employee and partner. I was working with this great guy that represented the old brick and mortar company and I was building out the e-commerce business. Out of nowhere, the guy I was working with just quit. I was left working with the owner of the old company I quickly learned why the other guy had quit. This guy was pretty much the definition of a dirty old man. He would say inappropriate things to employees and customers all the time. He would leave printouts from Craigslist for prostitution services laying around. He would use our offices for those encounters and he wasn’t good about cleaning up after. Disgusting.
