I took some decently cool pictures the other night, I think.

One thing I’ve learned from working customer service jobs in a city that is a large tourist hub is that American’s who frequent cruise ships are dumb as fuck.
Summer highlights: “Do y’all take real money here?” (Because apparently any non-US currency has value equal to monopoly money.), “Oh I could’ve sworn you used Francs up here.” (No, we use the dollar, same as you. Wait, what, why would you think that?!), “Don’t you have American change?” (No, you’re in Canada.), and [after receiving Canadian change] “What am I supposed to do with this?” (Spend it! It’s good anywhere and everywhere in this country!)
I just got a bartending job and now I have to memorize a series of custom built cocktails before tomorrow.
