The unemployment rate for transgender people is double that of the general population. Now, California has set up the nation’s first ever large-scale program to help transgender people find jobs.

And it’s all because of Michaela Mendelsohn, a trans woman who’s employed trans people at her restaurants for years.

General Manager Kristy Ramirez has worked for El Pollo Loco for four years and knows many of the regulars. She’s loyal to the company because it gave her a chance that no one else would consider, since she’s transgender. For that, she thanks Mendelsohn.

“The word’s just gotten out that I’m a trans owner supporting trans people,” Mendelsohn says.

11.99

At my restaurant we have this very popular unlimited item. During lunch it’s 7.99 but during dinner it’s 11.99 and dinner starts at 4.

So I get sat this table at 4 and I go to greet them as usual. One of them is practically laying on the table and the other has her shoes off and I already know it’s going to be one of *those* tables.

Me: hi! How are we doing today?
*they continue to talk and completely ignore me*
Me: my name is ____ and I’ll be taking care of us today. What can I get us to drink?

They continues to talk and right as I was about to walk away, they roll their eyes and look at me and go “water with lemons and I mean a lot of lemons and a glass of wine. And don’t taken too long. We don’t have all day”

Ok whatever. So I go and grab everything and when I come back, one of them asks me about the popular unlimited entree.

Lady: where is the unlimited thing you have?
Me: it’s not on the dinner menu, but we do have it. However, because it is after 4, the price is 11.99 instead of 7.99.
Lady: SERIOUSLY?! JUST FOR THAT?!
Me: yes ma'am :)
Guy at the table: well we should get it for 7.99 because we have been at the table since 3:45
Me: no sir, you were sat right at 4. I can give you a few minutes to look at the menu if you would like?

He then waves his hand at me to tell me to go away.

Now. I COULD have given them the 7.99 price but they were dicks and when you’re a dick, I’m going to charge you for every little thing I can. Sorry not sorry

Anywho.

I go back after about 10 minutes to see if they’re ready to order.

Me: are we ready or do we need a couple more minutes?
Guy: well since it’s after 4 we had to change our entire order!!!

I just smiled and told them I’d give them a few more minutes.

I then found a night person to take them from me so I could go home because i don’t have the time or patience for this, introduce them to their new server, and grab my purse to leave.

On my way out, they glared at me the entire time. I waved at them.

Fuck off you toads.

Paper Hearts (Part 7)

♡ Pairing: Reader x Jungkook // Reader x Jimin

♡ Length: 4.2k

♡ Summary: It has been nearly a year since you started writing anonymous letters to Jungkook, giving him words of encouragement behind the thin mask of a paper. He never considered you as a possible suspect behind these letters, because you were nothing more than a best friend. And you couldn’t put all the blame on him either, after all, you were too afraid to confess in fear of tarnishing your precious friendship.

Miscellaneous Fates headcanons because why not ! Most of them are for Revelations

-Laslow and Peri are pretty good friends, and they often cook together. They also listen to each other vent (Peri about all the stuff that made her angry, Laslow about all the girls who rejected him).

-Hinoka is worried about what she’ll do after the war, since the things that drove her forward and which she dedicated herself to (getting Corrin back and her hatred of Nohrians) are now both obsolete. She’s talked about it mainly to Camilla and Takumi (the former is a good listener, and the latter knows what it’s like to feel inadequate).

-Both armies are very careful not to let Azama and Niles meet. The troll would reach critical mass.

-They are also very careful not to let Peri and Azama meet.

-There is a common language spoken on most of the continent that’s used for communication, but each country has also its own language (Japanese for Hoshido, French for Nohr).

-Most people who live near the border between Norh and Hoshido (like Charlotte and Benny) can speak all three languages.

-Niles got in trouble for teaching Subaki some very crass songs and telling him they were something completely different. He still thought it was hilarious.

-Building on @iavenjqasdf ‘s swear jar headcanon, Elise asks Takumi to teach her every Hoshidian swear word he knows so she can keep everyone in check.

-In Norh, a lot of people sleep in the same bed (both to keep warm and because it’s cheaper). It’s not nearly as common in Hoshido, and as a result many a misunderstanding was born.

-Ryoma outright asked Xander if he was sleeping with his retainers, to which Xander answered yes because in French the two activites don’t have a common expression (”Dormir avec” and “Coucher avec” both translate litterally as “to sleep with” but the former means actually sleeping while the latter means “to have sex with” this was your french lesson for the day). The conversation got awkward fast.

-Everyone in the army gets ‘Lost in thoughts all alone’ stuck in their head at least once a day.

-Azura finds it very funny.

-After training together for some time, Sakura and Elise start playing every evening to keep morale up. Azura often joins. And with the help of Orochi and Laslow they sometimes put on little shows.
