Abuse and fucking power plays are rife in all arts-based industries, because it’s so easy for abusers to retaliate against anyone who stands up to them. Most work opportunities are short-term (like for the duration of the play or exhibition). There’s a lot of competition for work and the criteria is purely subjective.…

I’ve been to a 12 step based in patient rehab program and have been required to continue to partake in the program as a condition of my probation, so I’ve seen a lot of others in the program and seen how they’ve been affected in addition to my own experiences. I’ve seen a lot of people succeed in the program, often…

Minnesota captures Canada’s “exceedingly polite rural folk who are secretly extremely conservative/surprisingly vibrant urban centres given how boring most the people there are” divide excellently. Plus the hockey thing. So agreed on that front.

Toronto clearly isn’t on the same scale as NYC, London or Paris (it’s only…

There actually aren’t any “cute young girls” on staff at Margot. All the servers at Margot are professional and expect their tables to be pro diners, rightly. It should be said that Margot is an institution in East Nashville, and it doesn’t surprise me one bit that that was her reaction. Just to add another layer to…

So you’re working at the front desk of a hotel where a fairly famous female guest is staying. Some rando comes up and asks what room she’s staying in and requests the room next to hers. This raises no red flags and you have the bell hop escort the strange creepy man to his requested room.
