Brown tips (and the purging thereof) - humor


I have a moment ago develop into frustrated with a touch at doughnut establishments, and I'm not referring to the scones, even though -- badly -- just think about the characters potential if I were. Rather, it's the tip cup that bothers me. . .

To begin, I do apprehend that doughnut (or donut, take your pick) shops aren't the only sitting room with these cups. But for the sake of this column, I need to be ignorant to all of the other ones in order to keep some sort of focus, so bear with me here. . .

Yogi: That's right, I am.

Smokey: Me too

At any rate, my first difficulty is what we are tipping when we be a factor extra change, every so often even buck bills, into the doughnut tip cup. Is it the way the employees stretch to grab the lemon-filled that is so challenging, or is auburn pouring more of an art than I belief it was? The thing is, I continually end up tipping since it's be converted into an obligation instead than a choice. Blood and jelly are the same color and I accomplish that. . .

Still, this tip cup could have its advantages. For example, doughnut establishments could use the money to fund examine in the conception of new doughnuts. Personally, I'd like to know that my extra 15 cents per day was putting some seminary confine hard to work in order to find out if sprinkles certainly do taste advance when they're multi-colored, or to see if crme mixed with difficulty juice is such a bad idea after all. And then, when this do research is accomplish (and thorough), I want to see my name someplace on the authoritative document. . .

Doughnut Shop Owner: Wait a minute, wait a exact -- you are receiving way too accepted away.

Greg: So are you. And it's about time a big name stood up for the doughnut regulars of America.

Owner: That's ironic, making an allowance for most of them sit down.

Greg: True. But that's above and beyond the point. I will only stop journalism when you tell me why the tip cup is there.

Owner: I will, but I need you to keep this is a secret, okay?

Greg: Sounds good to me.

Owner: You see, we need guidance -- like, actually critical advice. And so we put that tip cup there hopeful that we'd get it, and sorry to say citizens are gone astray the point.

Greg: Oh, I see. Well, I have some guidance for you, sir.

Owner: Thank you, what is it?

Greg: Well, it'll cost you 50 cents. . .

But I digress.
