I can't really move my neck around, is that normal with a throat infection?

I sometimes think my body is trying to kill me because when I went to the doctor, the whole way there I had a fever but once I sat in the waiting room I almost felt normal other than not being able to swallow, my temp was normal too, once I got home it went back up to 102 and I felt like extreme crap again. I think my body likes to play games so the doctors always think I'm slightly lying. I'm spitting up blood (not like movie style) but my mucus has blood particles in it. Ew

The restaurant I worked for last year has some drama going on. Big time.

Background:
- Opened Nov. '09
- Owned and operated by a young, unmarried couple. I'll call them Cady and Benny. Benny is legally the owner on paper, but Cady benefits from the income (they live together) and is paid a manager's salary.
- They've been together for 10 years. They own a house, 2 cars, and a boat together.
- Initially, Cady bartended and served. All servers and bartenders pool tips, so she always got an equal cut, just like everyone else.
- They now have a 1 year old child. Since the birth of the baby, Cady acts as manager most of the time. Sometimes she fills in as hostess or food runner.
- The hostess and the food runner get 5% and 10% of the tips respectively.

Apparently, last week, Cady sent the hostess home around 6:30 and took over those duties. She also sent one of the waitresses home. Since she had hired a babysitter that night, Cady had to leave by 9. The staff decided that since it was slow enough to cut 2 people, and that she only filled in for 2.5 hours, that they didn't need to tip out Cady. The next day she was furious and accused the senior staff members of stealing and made it very clear that she was to be tipped out just like any other employee.

And, it happened again! She filled in for a food runner last night, and didn't receive a tip-out from the staff. I was told she humiliated one of the girls who worked last night, in front of everyone, accused her of stealing, and made her re-divide the tips to give her a tip out!!!

This can't be legal, can it??? I've tried to find out about labor laws in Puerto Rico, but I can't find anything in English. I may have found some stuff in Spanish, but it's hard to for me to decipher the legal language. I do know that PR follows FLSA and has very strict labor laws that usually favor the employee.

These people are nasty mo-fos. Benny frequently talks crap about his employees to his other employees... He discusses not only work related issues, but comments on people being old, ugly, and fat.

Ugh!!!!
Being a manager, she shouldn't receive tips at all.

I mean, she gets paid massively more then the employees do, right? Even if she's covering for someone, she's still the manager and still gets managerial wages.

This is what I thought when I read this. Managers don't get tips. That's some bs.

Aw, murrrcat, if I were closer, I would make you some chicken soup (if you eat chicken soup)! Are you sipping on that lemon chiffon (?) tea of yours? Got any soup or broth? You can always put some crackers in hot broth til they get soggy - they won't hurt your throat, and at least you'll get something in you. ((((hugs))))

Aww, I'd totally make you some nice stracciatella, so you'd get your eggs, your soup, and some greens. Then I'd have your boo feed it to you.

MURRRCAT, SARIA, AND SCG:

My 5-year-old asked me if "boys are humans"? I'm afraid I had to tell her yes. Any suggestions for next time?

Yes, but as they age they become lower beings not worthy of our time, with a few exceptions here and there.

I liked the food blog again. She wrote about drinking whole milk. Off to read the comments so my my eyes can get stuck in the back of my head.

I have a secret. But it shouldn't be a secret because there is nothing wrong with it.

My son loves to have his nails painted. And I paint them.

Whew. I feel better now.

Apparently, I didn't do a good enough job. He just got his sister to paint them.

We were at the beach in the summer and there was this big biker guy there with a little girl and little boy and they both had blue painted toe nails. The kids were playing near us and we were ewwig and ahhing over what nice nails that had. The little boy said his Dad had done them that morning for them
