Underappreciated Characters | Vincenzo ‘Vinny’ Santorini
"My family owned a flower shop. We would sell roses, carnations, baby’s breath, you name it. One day, I’m making about three dozen corsages for this prom, you know, the one they put on the wrist, and everybody, they come. "Where is it?", "When is it?", "Does it match my dress?" It’s a nightmare. Anyway, I guess there was this leak next door of gas or what. BOOM! No more Chinese laundry. Blew me right through the front window. It was like a sign from God. I found myself that boom. "
People think what’s in the US today is capitalism. It’s not even close to capitalism. Capitalism doesn’t have a central bank, capitalism doesn’t have taxes, it doesn’t have regulations; capitalism is just voluntary transactions. What they have in the US today I call crapitalism. But it’s sad that so many people are confused and they think, ‘Oh that’s free markets in the US’, when it’s one of the least free market countries on earth.
Is it appropriate for a waitress to write a heart on a check when she knows the man is going to pay because we were there the night before with the same waitress, and it’s obvious we were there as a couple? I said no, my bf said she prob does it to everyone but he could not remember from the night before and I’ve never gotten a hand written heart on a check as a female
… I was a little annoyed and I thought he should have tipped her less because it was disrespectful to me IMO.
That’s definitely a bit inappropriate and I can almost guarantee she doesn’t write hearts for everyone like your boyfriend says.
I’ve seen more than a few customers hit on servers I work with but it’s a general rule that we servers should not do that to customers at all
…and it’s true too.
I just always reblog this story too. Because it’s awesome. And because obviously Boggs is the kind of person that should be well known, and become a role model. (And Chris Garcia, Boggs’s friend who rode as well!)
Also, I wanted to note that there’s a scholarship fund for the two boys set up. You can donate here!: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/reward-the-heroes-scholarship-fund-temar-boggs-and-chris-garcia
Reblogging for scholarship information
The scholarship fund is currently at $15k, but we know that even now that’s a pittance compared to the actual cost of higher ed. And it doesn’t look like costs are going to be coming down, unfortunately.
Please donate if you can, and signal boost the heck outta this.
Always reblog because someday I hope the first thing I think when we see a photo of a young black man is something like this, not “criminal” or “murdered by police.”
Also Tumblr, if we can raise money for people’s medical bills and sick cats and so on, surely we can send these two young men to college?
The cop said “stop resisting,” ergo she must have been resisting. And “resisting,” in cop parlance, is also known as “existing.”
