This is a cute meme with good questions. Play along!
This week’s questions:
1. Are you good about going to the doctor?
Gosh, no. I avoid them, actually. Now that I am older, I do realize that their education and their information can be very helpful (when I have found a good one). Overall, I’m a “DIY” kinda girl.
2. What do you think about the practice of restaurants adding automatic tips for large groups or specific events?
My husband used to work in banquet halls. The auto-tip policy ensures that the servers — who work very hard for pittance — get a little boost with the tips. In case you didn’t know: most servers have to share their tips with the busboy at the end of the day.
3. When was the last time you went out for dinner?
A looooong time ago. Months. Maybe 7, 8, 12 months. I doubt I’ll be going out any time soon, because I am rigidly cutting out fats, pastas, sugars and other gunk from my diet. And it’s just no fun to go to an Italian restaurant to eat a little salad while everyone else is feasting on veal parmigiana or fried fish.
4. What is your best budget saving tip for recovering from an unexpected expense or planning for one?
Set aside a tiny bit of money from each paycheck, even if you can only save $1. Over time, it will add up, and something saved is better than nothing saved.
Now it’s time for my question!
What is your least favorite vegetable? Yes, you can only choose one!
For me, it’s probably lima beans. The mere thought of them makes me shudder.
