Cafe Threads: That's nice. These stories are always nice. Like the secret santa who gave out hundred dollar bills to people shopping.

What I'd like to know is, why don't they come knock on my door? I don't have money to shop. I can't get a job. I need money, too.


These stories show that having a social safety net is not necessary.

At mu old job, I had to call ahead to hotel staff to give them an ETA for service calls. My main point of contact was a guy named Dave. Great guy. Easy to work with, always had cool old Vegas stories.

So I call Dave while I'm driving. Except in my haste/distraction, I dialed the wrong number. Wound up accidentally waking up some sleepy stoner guy. Said, "Hey Dave, it's Claude, just wanted to let you know I'm on my way."

What then transpired was a distracted phone call while driving where I got confused thinking Dave left his phone on the bench, and I was talking to his coworker, Kevin (also a really cool dude). Yet this poor stoner kept pleading with me that there wasn't any Dave there, while I kept insisting on asking when he'd be back, or if he could pass along the message to Dave.

Dude finally just got so upset that he bleated out, "Look! Dave's not here, man!"

It was at this point I realized I had the wrong phone number. I also realized this dude had sleepily yelled out that line, so I started laughing. Dude got pissed thinking I was a prank call all along and just whined at me, "Awww! Goddammit, maaaaaan!". Which made me laugh even harder, and he hung up.

apathy2673: thealgorerhythm: SBinRR: I wonder if there was a server that called in that day, or traded shifts with someone.

They were out with COVID. Joke's on them because in AMERICA we rely on the largess of rich customers to relieve employees who actually show up to work, not socialist handouts for slackers.

All I got out of that was that you can't spell largesse

That is a sweet story.

David, came into her Estes Park eatery on Wednesday for some eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits and gravy.

Of course, Dave may just be giving his money away before he has his heart attack

Have you tried whining? Maybe it works and you aren't whining enough.

No. it's largesse. Take your 'I'm a Dumbass, Make Me Feel Good About Myself Dictionary' and stick it up your LARGE ASS like Tom Brady is doing to the Packers.
