I'm surprised to see that "made [one's] night" translates literally between English and French -- or at least Quebecois French.

That was not the case when I worked for tips, although that was many years ago. ETA: Or maybe I just never earned tips low enough for that to kick in.

I completely missed two earthquakes when I lived in WA. I don't remember where they were on the scale, but most other people felt them.

Thank you.

IDK if you count me among those who did so after your comment, but FTR, I have not advocated "helping people avoid taxes."

Duly noted, but I don't think Chas Fink read your mind and knew you almost posted that. :)

Little Pink Pill brought up the subject of avoiding taxes on tips, but she didn't advocate for doing so.
