I was walking down the street when I was approached by an eleven- or twelve-year-old boy. He introduced himself and said that he was selling tickets to the annual Boy Scouts circus to be held on the upcoming Saturday night. He asked if I wished to buy any at five dollars apeice. Since one of the last places I wanted to spend Saturday evening was with the Boy Scouts, I declined. “Well,” he said, “if you don’t want to buy tickets, how about buying some of our big chocolate bars? They’re only a dollar each.” I bought a couple and, right away, realized that something noteworthy had happened. I knew that to be the case because: (a) I do not like chocolate bars; (b) I do like dollars; (c) I was standing there with two of his chocolate bars; and (d) he was walking away with two of my dollars.

anonymous asked:

going to a stripclub: the entrance fee (if there is one) the strippers don't see. They also don't see any of that drink/bar money, so please keep that in mind when going in (cover may be ~$20, drinks could be $2-$5 apeice, or possibly free depending on the cover charge) Bring at least an additional $30 for the strippers and tip each girl AT LEAST $1-2 every time she dances a new set. :) Love, a sex worker

so just a few bucks per dance is normal? i want to be a good customer thank you so much for the info!!! 

i assumed there would be cover plus drinks so i really just want to know how much to tip thanks so much you’re an angel!
