If you’re on hold with a company, which is better: To have the recording tell you approximately how long the wait will be, or NOT. I think I prefer NOT to know because then there’s always the hope that you’ll be talking to a human in mere seconds. When they tell you that it will be 47 minutes, you just want to go ahead and shoot yourself.
Is there ever a cause for you not to tip at a restaurant? We tend to tip 15% even with the crappiest of service and add onto that depending on how good the service is. However – we know people who do the opposite – start at the 20% mark and work down to ZERO depending on the level of service.
How do you feel about returning items you’ve purchased? To me – it’s not a big deal. I’ve done it hundreds of times. MrZ, on the other hand, hates to do it. If I didn’t offer to do it for him, there are times (depending on the amount spent – he does have his limits) that he would just keep the item instead of taking it back. He hates it that much.
How do you feel about walking out of movies? Swistle brought this subject up recently on her site. Have you ever done it? Would you do it? I have only done it once and that was because LilZ was so bored he wouldn’t sit still. It was a movie I thought he’d like, but was waaaaay too young for it and was bored to TEARS. His fidgeting was making me crazy, so I offered to leave if he wanted to. He practically burned a hole in the carpet he ran out the door so fast. But normally? I wouldn’t. No matter how bad. I like popcorn too much to leave before the movie is over.
Do you sing along with music? LilZ and I discussed this recently. Typically? He does NOT sing along with the music. I used to when I was younger but have grown out of it because I know it pains the people around me. (I have a DREADFUL voice. Seriously. I’ve actually been told that.) He has a nice voice, though. I don’t know why he doesn’t sing. One sidenote: We BOTH sing out loud (and LOUDLY) along with Buffy’s “Once More, With Feeling” soundtrack which we actually were playing full-blast last night while cooking dinner. I don’t know why that gets us out of our vocal shells, but most music does not.
