I worked at a pub and got mentioned by name in a review. My manager was not really around so cannot see the work I do but after seeing the positive review he was really happy with me.
I also used this at a job interview when they asked for an example of when I have delivered great customer service.
Edit: this is UK and I didn't ask for a raise or was rewarded with one, I'm just saying never ask for a raise unless you can back it up with a reason why you should get one. Those positive reviews are worth a lot especially to independent/small businesses... You get companies that pay thousands for fake reviews and it also get companies that sue people literally take them to court for leaving a bad review and they sometimes win thousands in compensation!
I have read your comments and I get it you can't get a raise as a server (hopefully that is just USA)... my point was that regardless of where you work reviews are valuable and make you stand out... So leaving a review can make a person s... keep reading on reddit ➡
I apologize, I know this sub is tired of housing related posts.
I wanted to entertain a hypothetical scenario where the government (and future governments) continue to do everything in their power to keep prices trending upwards, say, for the next 10-15 years. Whatever it takes: low interest rates, high immigration, not building new supply fast enough to meet demand, etc. I feel that this isn't a completely impossible scenario, given that they've managed to keep the party going for this long.
What would the consequences of this be?
My understanding is that part of the justification for continuing to support high housing prices is that boomers are depending on their home equity to fund their retirement. I see the stat often quoted here that something like 67% of Canadians are home owners.
But what happens to the 33% of Canadians who can't afford to buy, who are not able to save as fast as prices are rising? How will they be expected to fund their retirement? Will they ever be able t... keep reading on reddit ➡
For a while, I have noticed that, in addition to names going in and out of style, it seems certain sounds appear go in and out of style. Allow me to illustrate my point with women's names in the United States.
The first I will cover is the "Sh" sound, like in the name Sharon.
In 1958, 17 of the 500 most popular names contained a "Sh" sound. I have listed them here:
Patricia, Cheryl, Sharon, Shirley, Michelle, Sheila, Sherry, Marcia, Charlene, Charlotte, Shelley, Alicia, Shannon, Shawn, Felicia, Leticia, and Shelby
By comparison, in 2018, only 5 popular names contained the "Sh" sound:
Charlotte, Michelle, Alicia, Shelby, and Cheyenne
What is happening here? Is the "Sh" sound simply no longer appealing for whatever reason?
Here is an example in which a sound has become more popular instead of less: the "Br" sound
In 1918, 0 names in the top 500 contained a "Br" sound. Not a single one.
In 2018, 12 popular names contained this sound:

Cathy Young, on Pairagraph:
"Not long ago, those of us who warned about rising illiberalism on the left were often told we were making far too much of some loud college kids. In an article in early 2018, I argued that campus radicalism of a particularly troubling kind—identity-obsessed, intolerant of dissent—was spreading fast beyond campuses. I wish I hadn’t been quite so vindicated.
In the past couple of months, we have seen countless incidents of people punished for offenses against progressive dogma.... One could blame these excesses on an emotional “anti-racism moment.” But none of this is new, just more frequent.
**The problem isn’t just people getting “canceled.” It’s the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Is Microsoft the best stock of all-time? Back in the 90s, it used to be known as the millionaire stock with how many Microsoft investors and employees saw their wealth rise on the back of the company’s fortunes. The shares have split 9 times. And the company is currently the second most valuable in the world. If you invested $1,000 in the Microsoft IPO in 1986, today it’d be worth $2,130,200 – that’s a total return of 212,920%, or 25% annualized returns every year for the past 34 years. By comparison, $1,000 invested in the Apple IPO would be worth $1,262,380 today.
Microsoft’s dominance in PC software was so absolute by the late 1990s that the US Government opened antitrust proceedings in 2001 and tried to break up the company. Yet only a decade later, Microsoft had largely been surpassed by Apple and Google. No longer did tech executives and business schools point to IBM as the poster child for corporate stagnation and loss of commanding market share. It was now Microso... keep reading on reddit ➡
From 2010 to 2019, not a single stock in the S&P 500 performed better than Netflix did. Today, the company counts nearly 200 million subscribers across its global streaming platform. At any one time, Netflix accounts for 12-15% of all global internet traffic. And its market cap of $231bn makes Netflix more valuable than Bank of America, AT&T, or Comcast. If you invested $1,000 in the Netflix IPO in 2002, those shares would now be worth $437,888 for a total return of 43,688% – or annualized returns of 39.51% over the past 18 years.
But if it weren’t for a bad pitch to Blockbuster, Netflix may have never started the streaming revolution. Did you know that Netflix was originally called Kibble? That Walmart was once the biggest threat to its business? Or that the company nearly launched a “Netflix Box” to download shows instead of offering a fully on-demand streaming service? In the latest featured flashback, we profile how Netflix went from just another dot-com to category inven... keep reading on reddit ➡
