Heh! It's even mentioned on his Wikepedia page under PizzaGate. What a tool.

ROFL!!! And I don't even know where Utah is!

In my experience, most people with money tend to treat peons badly. I used to do the whole pizza delivery thing, worked in the kitchen, did a few deliveries, whole bit. I know it's a shiatty job, especially in the summer...so I make sure to give the pizza delivery person a decent tip. They're usually incredibly appreciative and next time I order, they remember me and get me my food faster.

If I should ever become 'rich' I will make certain (to the point of carving it into my left hand with a steak knife if necessary) to be kind to anyone working their ass off delivering pizza or working behind the counter during the Christmas season rush. Because I will always remember what it was like having some dickwad in a cheap suit try to make himself feel better about his crappy life by abusing me for 20 minutes while I rang up his order.

It takes a considerable amount of stupid to insult the person who is making your food.

the blogging young lady now understands that politicians are assholes whose main concerns are getting elected and promoting themselves while attempting to look like nice people. won't get fooled again.

Why is it that I knew he was a Republican before I even knew his name?

My wife and I 'abuse' servers routinely. Not really, of course. They stop and ask if there's anything else, we ask what the capital of Wisconsin is, or something similar.

Left the nice Russian immigrant at Denny's a $50 tip for putting up with us. Pizza delivery guys get a minimum $5 tip, tonight it was almost $10.

Hey, Bramble, personal checks are NOT the same as cash. Checks are worthless pieces of paper until it is established that there is enough money in the account to cover it.

It's unbelievable that he'd even try to pay for pizza delivery with a check. The guy doesn't have 30 bucks on him?

I'm trying to figure out why he got pissed after asking to put his driver's license number on the check. Has the guy never written a check at a store before?

There are plenty of times I don't have $30 in cash on me however I give the pizza place my card # and pay it over the phone.

At our new place delivery guys can NEVER find the house, we haven't tried torturing one by asking for delivery in over a year.

I just sent the "honorable" Senator Bramble an e-mail. It's embarrassing when people act like that. I felt bad reading it.

In Spanish it's called "vergüenza ajena." I don't know if there's a good English term for it.

I typically ask for the winning lottery numbers.

You would be surprised how often I get a smile from the people at the counter, the server, or what have you.

I tip people who make deliveries to my house very well, too, even though I don't make much more than they do. A typical pizza order for my house runs to about $25, and I give the driver at least $5. One driver told me I was the "best tipper" that evening. That made me feel good, too.

Spare $50's is another good one to ask for. Make sure to stipulate that you'll take $20's 'cause you're not proud.

Another that's fun is to ask for "Two for Tropic Thunder" at the bank. Or, of course, whatever movie is popular at the moment.

And you, my friend, have pinpointed why this country's leadership is all but in the farking toilet.

None of those people know this pain. None of those people have ever lived paycheck to paycheck. None of those people had to pay for their own schooling while holding down three jobs. None of those people have ever had to know what it's like to truly serve the farking public.

Good on this girl taking this guy to task. I hope she doesn't end up in a ditch somewhere.

When all you've ever driven is a State-funded vehicle, running on taxpayers' gas money, with exempt plates, there is no need to have a driver's license.

When I worked in a convenience store many years ago, I hated people that asked me for "the winning numbers". I assure you, the smile you're receiving is fake.

Because you're not the only person who asks. It's not really witty or cute the first time you hear it. After twenty times, it's annoying as fark.

Many, maybe. Some, certainly. I doubt that many, certainly at the state level, fit the bill.

Thanks for the "tip," but I have a lot more common sense than you seem to think.

ndotseth: Why is it that I knew he was a Republican before I even knew his name?

Well, considering that it's Utah, I think it's a safe bet that the state senate majority leader is gonna be a Republican. Not the toughest call to make.

Gecko Gingrich: Many, maybe. Some, certainly.

When specifically talking about the leadership of this country, I will stand by my "None".

State, municipal, non-essential Federal offices? I'm sure there are many fine people there, actually. Just not this guy and I assume he doesn't want to stay in Utah forever.

Who does?

And here I thought the correct answer to the initial question was that it's because he's the State Senate Majority Leader. In Utah.

What kind of intelligent adult uses personal checks in 2008 for ANYTHING except for maybe mailing a bill you can't pay online or someone's birthday card?

I've worked in restaurants for decades, and never once have I worked in one that accepts personal checks. Ever. Yet people still try to pull out their checkbooks and pay with them. Why are people so clueless that personal checks are essentially an archaic form of currency and the rest of society has debit cards now?

You'd think they would learn this lesson every single day.

The most hilarious part is where he brags about his credit limit as if that makes him an important, impressive guy. It's REALLY easy to get a Visa Signature card these days, which technically have no preset spending limit (though you have to be below a credit limit, if you have one, after paying your bill). AMEX charge cards, like this douche, was using, are also relatively easy to get if you have good credit. I've got cards with no preset credit limit, and I'm pretty sure I qualify as poor compared to this guy (in grad school right now). If you pay your bills on time, it's easy to get them to give you huge amounts of credit, or at least it was before this credit crisis thing started up.

I figured as much. Republicans are not exactly in touch with the delivery people. I am guessing Roy Williams of the Detroit Lions is a devout Rethug.
