Not really the way to roll since the update to the "free" tier.

The use of "historic" in frum media for things that are almost certainly not historic.
Along with lots of other hyperbolic terms used in those outlets.
All headlines with hyperbolic adjectives (historic, stunning, shocking, gruesome, grim, exorbitant, predictable) are editorial. Tell me the fact and I will decide what it is.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Pretty sure Iíve commented on tipping and mandatory tips in the past, but this one takes the cake:



- Mandatory 18% gratuity! (On a waitered lunch for two)
- The 18% gratuity is calculated after/including tax!
- They tip calculator at the bottom is based on the grand total that includes tax and the mandatory gratuity! If you opt for the ď25% tipĒ option, you end up tipping $35.30 on $71 worth of food, thatís a 49.72% tip!!!

The 18% gratuity is not after / including tax (the line is just printed underneath, but itís calculating pre tax numbers).

Youíre right. Though the tip percentages are based on the grand total that does include the tax and gratuity. The 49.72% is still accurate.

1. Going to bed early on a MS has never been a goal of mine.
2. Once kids hit a certain age, there's no going to bed "early."
