waitress



come on baby leave some change behind
she was a bitch, but I don't care
she brought our food out on time
and wore a funky barrette in her hair

come on baby leave some change behind
she was a bitch but good enough
to leave some change,
everybody's good enough for some change

the girl's got family
she needs cash to buy aspirin for her pain,
everybody's good enough for some change
SOME FUCKING CHANGE!!!

come on baby leave some change behind
she was a bitch, but I don't care
she brought our food out on time
and wore a funky barrette in her hair

come on baby leave some change behind
she was a bitch but good enough
to leave some change,
everybody's good enough for some change

we all get the flu,
we all get aids
we've got to stick together after all,
everybody's good enough for some change,
SOME FUCKING CHANGE!!!

Hi Jon. Just stopping by to let you know that I'm back. Yet again. I have much explaining to do, right? LOL.

awww fanks right back atcha. i actually posted this in response to a post someone made about "christian charity." she started by quoting a gentleman who was saying that in terms of giving, statistically, christians outclass everyone. yet the perception is the opposite.

then she spectulated on how her experience has been different and asked for opinions. the general concensus in the discussion was that most christians believe in giving to organizations (i.e. their local church, world vision, compassion international, etc.) but when it comes to a moment to moment generosity, christians are actually pretty stingy and call it "good stewardship."

that's when tipping came up. and everyone who has ever worked for tips knows that those who are overtly "christian" are 90% very cheap bastards. not all of them. but a damn near.

hence the posting of this song for reference.

am i rambling now? oh well. i don't know if i would be able to say what my favorite song on throwing copper is. i love it all so much i would definitely put it squarely in my top 5 albums of all time. but to pick just one? the dam at otter creek? i alone? iris? tbd? white, discussion? gosh... i think i'm going to have to bring it to work with me today and blare the shit out of it for fun.


watch out suburbia... it's gonna be loud.

That's because it's "safer" to give to an organization, rather than to individuals. It requires nothing of us except opening our wallets.

If we were to give more to individuals, it might require us to get (gasp!) dirty...we don't know what people really need until we know them and get right in the middle of their messes with them. God forbid.

Not that I have a strong opinion about this or anything... ;-)

interestingly enough, the one exception to the rule, i said, was youth groups. when the youth pastor pays (not one of the kids) the tips are usually pretty good. and just to prove it to me, i ended up delivering a large order to a youth activity and they gave me $20 the very morning after this discussion.

god bless youth groups and their pizza eating ways.
