The internet has slammed a man who allegedly played a tipping "game" with his waitress during a dinner date. Posting to Reddit on Monday under a throwaway account, the man's date claimed that the man put $15 on the table at the start of the evening. When the waitress came by to take their order, he told her: "This is your tip. Every time you mess up, I take some away." So far, the post has received more than 20,000 upvotes and over 2,500 comments. "The waitress looked nervous immediately," the Redditor recalled. "She must have been new as well, because she did spill some drinks on our table that night, gave us the wrong food, and overall just seemed lost." Due to the "poor service," the man deducted $13 from the waitress' "tip," leaving her with only $2. "I asked him why he thought doing tips this way was a good idea," the Redditor wrote. "He said it was the best way to ensure 'good service,'" and added, "[You] can't always be nice to these people, it's not a respectable … [Read more...] about ‘That’s Just Cruel’: Man Slammed For Playing Tip ‘Game’ With Waitress

Callaghan OHare/The Washington Post via Getty Images One day after a federal district judge in Texas ruled against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, President Biden said the Department of Justice intends to appeal the decision. In a statement , Biden said the ruling was "deeply disappointing" and "relegates hundreds of thousands of young immigrants to an uncertain future." He called on Congress to ensure a path to citizenship for them. The ruling struck a blow to the Obama-era policy that has protected more than 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation … [Read more...] about The Biden Administration Vows To Appeal A Federal Ruling Deeming DACA Unlawful

This article contains multiple spoilers about S-Town and 13 Reasons Why . When the podcast S-Town was released a little over a week ago, the most immediately remarkable thing about it was its method of delivery: All seven episodes were made available on the same day. This model has become old hat for TV shows thanks to Netflix, but S-Town is the first major podcast to present itself this way, as a single longform work that can be consumed any way the listener pleases. And, it turns out, it benefits the story greatly. S-Town starts out by hooking listeners into a possible murder-mystery, but quickly transmutes into something else, less grabby, but just as enthralling. In the first episode, the host and producer Brian Reed details how he received a tip about a possible murder that had been covered up in the small town of Woodstock, Alabama. The person offering the information just happens to be an character straight out of a Carson McCullers novel: an eccentric clock … [Read more...] about ‘S-Town,’ ’13 Reasons Why,’ and Making Art Out of Self-Destruction
Was there really a need for Overwatch 2? That’s the big question, and even after playing the game the answer is still not clear. It’s six years since the launch of the original Overwatch, so in normal circumstances a sequel would seem overdue at this point. That’s not generally how live service games work though and even when they announced it, developer Blizzard made it clear this isn’t a normal sequel. Exactly what it is though has been frequently unclear in the run up to its launch, but now finally we’ve had a chance to play it… sort of. Although it has a number at the end of its name this really isn’t a sequel in the traditional sense, but a continuation of the same game with a lot of the same characters, maps, and mechanics. The existing characters are all included and while most have had major overhauls the differences still aren’t significant enough that they couldn’t just have been part of the first game. Having said that, the redesigns do bring a certain … [Read more...] about Overwatch 2 first impressions – hands-on with early access
There is no end in sight as the third government shutdown of the year entered its third day Monday, the day before Christmas. Congress will not conduct regular business until days after Christmas, negotiations between the White House and Capitol Hill lawmakers appear to be at a standstill and congressional Republicans remain unsure exactly what President Donald Trump will accept for border wall funding after he abruptly moved the goal posts last week. One of three senior administration officials acting as intermediaries for talks between Trump and lawmakers, incoming acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, confirmed a grim reality on Sunday morning talk shows—one that hundreds of thousands of federal employees likely feared. "It's very possible that this shutdown will go beyond the 28th and into the new Congress," Mulvaney told Fox News' Chris Wallace . Trump doubled down Monday morning, tweeting that his border wall was, "Desperately needed!" He added that, "Virtually every … [Read more...] about No End in Sight for Partial Government Shutdown
ANTONIO CONTE launched a fierce defence of his methods, pointing to his winning record and claiming: "I can teach football to many people". The Tottenham boss copped flak from some quarters for being too conservative in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat in the North London derby. Seeming visibly irked by that criticism, he highlighted how his approach worked a charm last season against Arsenal with a 3-0 win in May helping them land Champions League football. While none of the sides he has managed has shipped six like Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United did at arch-rivals Manchester City on Sunday. Speaking ahead of Tuesday's clash at Eintracht Frankfurt, Conte said: “I think that for the characteristics of the players we have to defend situations. “And if we were able to exploit the situation, especially last passes, we would have been able to score many goals against Arsenal. Last season we won 3-0 and in the same way.
