I've lived in Alabama all my life. Growing up, I have learned how unique Alabama is compared to the other states. These ways will go on to the future generations. Being from Alabama is great and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

1. Events are planned around football games

Oh you're getting married? Congratulations! I won't be able to make is because Alabama is playing LSU that day.

2. Catching "Hot Rolls" at Lambert's Cafe in Foley

You either get hit in the face with them or dodge them. You can't get mad because the food is so good.

3. Mosquitoes ruin EVERYTHING

Mosquitoes are basically the state's most hated inhabitant.

4. You know how to pronounce Wedowee

We-DOW-ee. I'll just leave it at that.

5. You have run the heater & the AC on the same day.

For Christmas, Mother Nature gives you a gift. It's the gift of hot and cold in the same day. Yes, it really gets warm in December.

6. You know all the words to Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"

All you have to do is hear "turn it up"

7. "Go to church or the devil will get you"

This sign is basically a VERY important landmark. It's on I65 near Prattville

8. James Spann is your hero

If he's in a full suit, the weather is fine. If he takes off his jacket and rolls his sleeves up, you better seek shelter.

9. Roll Tide and War Eagle are acceptable greetings

"Roll Tide" "War Eagle" this is a real conversation.

10. Y'all is used in every sentence

​Hey y'all! How are y'all doing today? What have y'all been up to?

11. Alexander Shunnarah is everywhere

I'm surprised there's not a billboard outside my bedroom window. We all love Shunnarah though.

12. You can tell which county a person is from by their license plate

11: Calhoun County. 61: Talladega County. 1: Jefferson. The list goes on.

13. If you hear a tornado siren, you go outside and look for a funnel cloud

I'm guilty of this. I've seen the movie "Twister" too many times.

14. If it snows, the whole state shuts down

Sorry, Alabama is closed.

15. The Iron Bowl is basically a holiday

DO NOT CALL ME, TEXT ME, OR SHOW UP TO MY HOUSE WHILE THE GAME IS ON!

16. People from up North have a funny accent

Them folk ain't from around here.

17. Paul "Bear" Bryant and Ralph "Shug" Jordan are legends

The Bear coached at Alabama and Shug coached at Auburn. Both schools have named their stadiums after these men. Ex: Bryant-Denny Stadium and Jordan-Hare Stadium.

18. You know the difference between the state, the school, and the band

SPEND MY DOLLAR

19. BBQ is acceptable at any event

What's the menu at your wedding? BBQ.

Your Boat's Captain Deserves A 20% Tip, Just Like Your Server Or Barber

A tip about tipping people who serve you.

87
views

I date a man whose talented, smart, and very good at what he does. He's a captain and runs his own business. He goes to college full time, five classes every semester, and runs his business on the weekends.

After being with him for almost a year I've gotten a good look at how much work he puts into his trips. He'll come home to me explaining all about his trip and I think my favorite part is watching the joy surface his eyes when he mentions his customers were happy. He values customer satisfaction and I wish his customers could see how much he values it, even after the trip is over. He'll walk through the door, smelling like a dead fish, and looking like he got ran over by a train. He'll get home and I'll push him to the shower after I hold my breath to kiss him.

Sometimes he helps his friend's business out and runs his charters for him for a couple of days. The other day I listened to him explain one of his trips to me and I couldn't help but feel anger. He took this group out and they caught a great amount of fish and he took extra time to filleted them for his customers. After he was finished, he collected the money for his friend and received a tip. This tip wasn't close to 20% of the total amount for the trip, instead, it was around 11%.

I am a waitress and I think we all know common courtesy of the 15%-20% tip at a restaurant. So when I heard this 11% tip was given to my boyfriend I felt hurt for him.

I wish that customer could see how much this man works and loves what he does. He cares about his customers and when his customers aren't happy, it follows him home. Being a captain isn't just a job to him, it's his everything. Making people happy, makes him happy. He deserved more than what that customer valued him as and he worked harder than the value of that tip.

This can pertain to tipping in general, but when you're tipping your captain, waitress, hairstylist, or even valet driver, realize that they live off of those tips. They served you, sweated for you, and created satisfaction for you. Tip people appropriate because serving someone isn't easy, it's exhausting but we do it because we want you to be happy when you walk away.
