Normally, I feel that a lot of social justice is kind of exaggerated. But reading this blog, I can kinda be more accepting. I dunno. I feel like you guys are calm and well versed, not angry and belligerent. — Anonymous

shitrichcollegekidssay:

people getting angered by their own experiences in oppression doesn’t discredit their opinions, and being calm and unemotional shouldn’t be required for one to be taken seriously

We get a lot of comments like this too. Really, don’t take our (generally) calm/light-hearted demeanor that we choose to maintain for our own reasons and use that as an excuse to disregard the experiences of others who may express their anger in a more direct manner.

I listen to Judge John Hodgman every week while I am picking pubes and scrubbing toilets and wiping phlegm out of bath tubs. I make minimum wage and am told that I am expected to clean a room every 20 minutes. A five dollar tip (in ones or a single $5 bill - no loose change please) doubles my wage and therefore comes close to approaching a living wage for those twenty minutes. Judge Hodgman was right on when he said it is a sign of respect. A sign of respect for those of us, due to circumstances that are often beyond our control, end up doing the work that many of are guests would refuse to perform.

When I enter a room with beer bottles and pizza boxes and wet towels spread all over the room and often on the floor, I know that there are idiots in the world and there is nothing I can do to help them not be idiots. It makes the rest of my work much harder and I am discouraged with myself for letting the idiots of the world get me down. But then… I open the next door to see the trash in the trash cans, the towels gathered together in the tub or on the sink and the beds - slept in - but the spread neatly pulled up, I know that someone else, NOT an idiot, has respect for the hard work I do to make their stay more comfortable.

Paper money that I can quickly fold and place in my smock is very much preferred. Change gets heavy and is awkward when I’m making a quick trip through a fast food drive through on my way to my other low wage job.

Thank you so much, Judge Hodgman, for the respect that you showed us housekeepers with the comments you gave with your judgement.

— A Judge John Hodgman listener, in response to our episode “Tipping the Scales (of Justice).” Thank you. (via jessethorn)

I have always left a thank you note with a tip in my hotel rooms, and I’ve always done what I can to straighten up the room before I left. I just thought that was common courtesy and that everyone would do it. Good on John for encouraging more people to do this.
