So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
…you know. Just when I start to lose faith in humanity….Hm.
CAN I BE THE PERSON WHO DOES THIS?
ONE DAY WHEN I AM RICH, I WILL DO THIS.
If I ever win big in the lotto this will be what I do for people.

#because seriously #what use has kirk had for no win scenarios? #how far could he have possibly gone if he considered his father’s death as a lose? #if he considered his own life and his mother’s life as losses? #and there were probably times #when his stepfather was yelling and his mother was off world and there didn’t seem to be anywhere to run to #when he might have thought of just giving it all up as a situation that couldn’t be won #but he learnt that if he kept going #if he pushed hard enough and long enough #something would eventually give #and it might not be much or give him much to work with #but it’s been a hell of a lot more use to him than the idea of sitting back and accepting your lot #jim kirk does not understand the kobayashi maru and that is the best thing in the world #my kirk feels let me show them to you
there’s this unspoken law in britain that you’re not to phone anyone while doctor who’s on, and it was on and the phone rang and my brother was the one that had to pick it up, and he didn’t even say ‘hello’ or anything, he just picked it up and went, “WHO THE FUCK IS RINGING WHILE DOCTOR WHO’S ON?” and the person on the other end went, “DOCTOR WHO’S ON? I’LL CALL YOU BACK!”, and hung up.
We don’t even know who it was, I just—
