I worked at a little bar/comedy club in Alberta and this happened on my fourth shift. One of my tables just walked out without paying, leaving a bill of over two hundred dollars.
The owner was livid. Forced me to stay another half hour past my shift to yell at me until I was in tears. He forced me to leave, saying he was keeping my paycheck (which added up to barely a hundred dollars), as well as all my tips, and would demand I pay the rest out of pocket.
I was completely distraught. It was almost midnight, I called my mother, sobbing grossly, barely able to explain the situation, and she got angry on my behalf and gave me some much needed advice.
THIS IS ILLEGAL IN CANADA.
Unless you are the only person in the establishment with access to the cash register, you cannot be held responsible for shortage or loss of property. I still have to fight my (former) employer about this, but I am legally entitled to all of my pay. If he refuses still I can fill a complaint with m Provincial Labour Board and they will investigate it and get my wages, at no cost to me.
Know your rights, guys. Do your research. It saved this young, broke Robin a lot of money and stress.
One of these women is despised and hated for being awkward.
The other is applauded and worshipped for the exact same reason.

One had to portray a disaster of a character, one didn’t
I love Kristen Stewart to death. She’s my best friend in my head, but Bella Swan should never have been written.
People think she was bad at acting. She just got ‘big’ off of correctly acting a poorly written character. It’s really damned sad.
So I was travelling and I had a backpack with me which had a notebook, my purse, a bottle of coke and like 2 maxi pads for vagina reasons
After travelling for a few hours I reached into my bag to grab my purse and it was sticky and the unopened coke bottle was empty
I was feeling my bag expecting a pool of coke at the bottom and why it hadn’t leaked out of my bag and it turns oUT MY MAXI PADS ABSORBED AN ENTIRE FUCKING BOTTLE OF COKE

This is an ancient Roman amulet for luck. Yes those are flying penises.
Also of note, the Roman god of marriage, Mutunus Tutunus, whose name is derived from two Latin slang words for penis. His name is essentially Dick Wiener. If you have ever wondered just how much like us the Romans were, read the etymology section.
It’s a flying fuck.
It used to be given, and now look, it’s no more.
LITERALLY. A FLYING FUCK.
This is culturally and historically important, so I can reblog this without feeling childish. (Look, flying dicks!!)
