    [–] What is surprisingly legal? jbp12 1 points ago in AskReddit

    If their tips end up being less than what they would make with minimum wage, the employer has to make up the difference. So tipped employees theoretically make at least minimum wage.

    What country is this? This is illegal in the US, which is where I assume most of the people on this thread are from (given the plethora of comments about lobbying and congressional insider trading).

    The Supreme Court recently ruled that balers (and other companies) can’t deny their services to people on the basis of their sexuality. Interestingly enough, the baker at the center of that case “won” because the government of Colorado had treated him unfairly due to his religion, but that was a separate issue in the same case.

    In America, people usually pass on the right for one of two reasons:

    -They’re weaving through traffic

    -The guy in the left lane is driving too slowly, so the person behind them passes them on the right to let them know they’re going too slowly

    EDIT: This is on highways, not slower speed roads

    It was also the British POV on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. They don’t call it the bloodiest single day in British military history for nothing

    [–] What's a scam you fell for? jbp12 6 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in AskReddit

    Now I’m just curious why you think (politely) exercising my right to leave without showing a receipt is “entitled”. And I know that being asked a question isn’t the same as being detained, I was very clear about that.

    [–] What's a scam you fell for? jbp12 6 points ago in AskReddit

    That’s my point... They can ask you to show your receipt, but you don’t have to. If they don’t let you leave, then you are being detained. That’s literally what being detained means.

    You might find it cuntish not to show my receipt, but if the LP associate doesn’t have probable cause to believe I’m a shoplifter, I can say no. It’s my right. And if the line to get out is very long, it might be worth my time to exercise that right (politely, of course).

    [–] What's a scam you fell for? jbp12 11 points ago in AskReddit

    Not being allowed to leave the store is being detained. It’s a very black and white matter. If the LP associate doesn’t let you leave until you show a receipt, then it’s a detention.

    Walmarts are allowed to ask every customer leaving their store for a receipt, with or without probable cause of shoplifting. Customers are allowed to decline. They might be assholes in the way they decline, or they might just say “no thanks” and leave. Not everyone who exercises their rights does so in a cuntish manner.

    Walmart staff might be trained to let you leave, but this doesn’t mean they always do. A quick Google search yields the story of this unfortunate man who was physically prevented from leaving a Walmart, even though the LP associates didn’t have probable cause to believe he was shoplifting.

    [–] What's a scam you fell for? jbp12 13 points ago in AskReddit

    That’s not the point... Even if Walmart only checked larger items (which may be the case at your Walmart, but is certainly not a universal policy), LP associates can only detain you under suspicion of shoplifting if they have probable cause to believe you are trying to shoplift. Not producing a receipt does not constitute probable cause.

    LP associates deal with their fair share of cunts, if not more. Anyone who has worked in customer service, myself included, can attest that cunts are everywhere. But no matter how awful someone is, a store cannot legally detain someone for shoplifting without probable cause. Customers have a right not to be detained with probable cause, and exercising that right does not make them a bad person.

    [–] What was the stupidest thing someone has asked you 100% seriously? jbp12 6 points ago in AskReddit

    I feel like the insurance company deals with enough claims to know that humans aren’t starfish.

    [–] isye2027 waitlist? jbp12 6 points ago in gatech

    I hauled my sorry ass from east to west campus for my 8 am ISYE 2027 section three times per week for a semester and never missed a lecture. This was January-May, so it was below freezing most of the time. I can say beyond a doubt that this was worth it, because my prof (Foley) was great and more importantly, I didn’t have to delay this class by a semester (it’s required for every other ISYE class except engineering econ, so you kinda have to take it as soon as you can).

    If I, a sleepy college student who hates cold weather, could do an 8 am section of ISYE 2027, then so can you.

    [–] Do all AP credits count toward credit hours needed to graduate? jbp12 3 points ago in gatech

    It might depend on your major. For ISYE, the PHYS 2XXX credit is meaningless. Once you get access to DegreeWorks, you can see which credits are fallthrough or insufficient, and which ones will actually help you graduate.

    [–] English teachers and professors of reddit: What non-plagiarized paper was the worst paper you ever graded? jbp12 3 points ago in AskReddit

    That, and lawsuits are expensive. Often, it is easier to bite the bullet and award someone a degree than devote time and resources (money) to a frivolous lawsuit.
