The ASSumption that workers will take advantage of paid sick leave is the root cause why coffee shops and retail have such a high turnover rate. When you expect the worst of your employees you are:
A) Hiring the wrong people
B) Hiring the only people who will work for you because you are a galloping dickweed.
I am a fortunate person who has worked where I work for long enough that I accrue 3 weeks of vacation/sick leave per year. I work for such an awesome company that I rarely take those days and end up rolling it over to the next year. I am also lucky that I have a very healthy immune system. I am also a terrible liar and have a conscience, so I don't even try to call in "sick."
When you hire trustworthy people you can *gasp* trust them.

Two words - Pickled Grapes. Monte Cristo has 'em and they are the most perfect pairing with the Full Monty. Just...heaven. The sandwich is on the small side, but the flavor is ridic. I'm about quality over quantity. If it was $9 for a shitty small sandwich I'd be pissed, but it isn't. It's so delightful to my tastebuds!

The biscuits and gravy are really incredibly tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. It's inexpensive, the staff is super nice, the food is perfectly and simply delicious because it's not trying to be anything it isn't. I love the Square Knot, and I'm a 38 year old tattooed asshole, not some young shithead hipster. Those of you trying to label this a hipster joint are misguided. This is the perfect spot for us grumpy oldsters who just want some good, cheap food.

Jesus wept. You people are the whiniest bunch of tittybabies! Germs are everywhere. Fact of life. Wash your hands. Wash your produce. If you practice generally good hygiene, you're pretty much golden. You fucking freakshow, germphobe, hypochondriac, sanitize-everything people are the cause of superviruses. Calm the fuck down and eat an apple. Rinse it off first. Yeesh.

Agreed. Satliffe seems to be a talented actor with a beautiful booming voice...this was just not the right casting for him. His over-intense portrayal of Judd comes off as rapey, dangerous and unsettling...and far too shakey/twitchy. The interracial casting in this instance was really distracting. When Curly is showing Jud how to make a noose to hang himself in the claustrophobic shack scene, you could hear gasps throughout the audience, like, "Did they really just go there?"
In my opinion the choreography was far too humpy. I've never considered Oklahoma to be an overtly sexual show, so I was a little put off by all the hip thrusting. A thrust or two would have been fine, but the choreography reminded me of my neighbor's horny, leg-humping dog. At first it's funny and a little awkward, then it's just annoying.
