In the teacher's office, someone's cellphone has been ringing, almost non-stop, for the last 38 minutes. >.<

I would gladly take that over the time my upstairs neighbor was retching for half an hour straight over 2 days. No idea how he's alive.

Answer it and say 'yubba-say-yo,' and really emphasize the 'yubba.' Make sure your waygookin accent is extra thick. Don't forget to breathe super heavy.

Not for me, unfortunately, tomorrow is still a workday. On the upside, though, we'll probably get to leave early.

Have a good holiday!

On minimum wages in Canada:

My socialist cousin (who I love, don't get me wrong, he's a great guy) recently linked to an article on Facebook that stated with minimum wage at $15/h, and the average rent in Toronto is $2000/month, so poverty.

Does one expect to live an AVERAGE life (in Toronto) at MINIMUM wage (for the province)? Should shop owners in Timmins pay thier high school part-time help enough for a flat at Yonge and Bloor?

It is really hard to have a serious discussion when rediculous numbers are presented like this.

I'm curious how minimum wage would be in Timmins if it was adjusted with productivity. Understandably it is more expensive to live at Yonge and Bloor (poor choice), but maybe the minimum in Timmins should be raised from its current provincial level.

Businesses are of course looking to cut costs, but maybe they should be nudged to pay employees more reasonably.

I think I support an age-based minimum wage. The high school student is always cited as why the minimum can't be raised, so cap the high school minimum at 80% the full minimum, or something less than the 18/19+ amount.

I think there are countries that do something like that, but I do not know how effective age-adjusted rates are.

WTF is the point of me coming all the way to my furthest school after exams? Why do I have to spend money to come babysit them? Guess I'm watching the first 45 minutes of Spiderman: Homecoming a lot today.

There is an age based minimum wage in Ontario. When I was there 2 years ago, student min wage was about 9$ and minimum was around 12$. Also take into account that food, especially fruits and vegetables in bigger cities is less. If you go up to Haliburton it's like 10$ for a bag of potatoes that would cost 4$ in the GTA. Since Ontario's big they charge out the butt for shipping products outside of Southern Ontario. My family has a cottage up north and it's crazy expensive if you want produce in the middle of nowhere, so that cost of living is higher while housing is cheaper.

Go to a cafe or go home and make your own. Don't put up with not getting any lunch.
