Bag of Randomness for Friday, March 29, 2019

    • That’s DogGeedingII trying to get WifeGeeding’s attention.
    • When I hear someone say, “I’ll be more than happy to . . .”, I don’t believe them. However, if I hear, “Not a problem,” I do believe them, though I can’t stand the phrase. It makes me think I’m intruding or asking for something out of the ordinary.
    • I’m not a fan of being called “Boss” by any wait staff or customer service representative. As a rule, don’t call your customer any nickname.
    • When I was a busboy and then a waiter, I was instructed to never spray cleaning solution on the table but directly into my washcloth. Spraying on the table spreads a scent to those nearby which takes away from the food, and there’s a chance spray mist might land on nearby food or people. I was also taught to fold my washcloth into fourths. One side would be used for cleaning and the other for drying. When the cleaning side gets too dirty, I fold the washcloth to a clean side. Before being taught this technique, I went through a plethora of washcloths.
    • ‘Alien’ Helmer Ridley Scott Gives Thumbs Up To High Schoolers Who Adapted His Sci-Fi Classic: ‘Do Gladiator Next!’
      • I saw some highlights of the high schoolers’ play earlier this week and failed to mention their creativity despite a lack of resources. But I’m glad to see Ridley Scott is recognizing them and this part of his letter really stood out to me. Sometimes, less is definitely more.
        • Limitations often produce the best results because imagination and determination can surpass any shortfalls and determine the way forward – ALWAYS.
    • Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s death. Here are some interesting tidbits about his burial:
      • Casket – $80 Government Issue requested by Eisenhower. The only difference between his casket and those furnished for any soldier buried by the Army is an inner glass seal that cost an extra $115. It was lined with tailored eggshell crepe.
      • General Dwight D. Eisenhower was buried in his World War II uniform. It consists of “pink” trousers and the green “Ike” jacket that he made famous. Although he was one of the most decorated military men in history, his uniform had only the following medals: Army Distinguished Service Medal with three oak leaf clusters, Navy Distinguished Service Medal, and the Legion of Merit.
