Thinking about how "normal" I as a bartender consider it to be threatened and physically attacked at work

It makes me sad. Our job is about hospitality. Things shouldn't be this way.

if someone posts a question like "will X work" on a forum and you're about to post something along the lines "idk, just try it." or "only one way to find out lol" consider: maybe just don't 🙃

You know when you search for information about an obscure library you need to get working, and the only relevant thing you find is a single forum post from 15 years ago asking your question, and the only response is "google it, idiot"?

In ten years, what you'll find instead is "join the discord for help" with a dead server link.
