Happy to hear of no flip flops. I just find it to be a safety hazard and unprofessional. I love coffee like you do tea, but strong espresso. I have a french press, but usually dont use it just because of the convenience factor of the coffee pot. I rarely get coffee at the truck stop. Although its cheap, Cafe Bustello is a dark robust blend, and is cheaper than standard coffee, its avail at wally world. Its my daily go to. Just have never been a big tea guy.

I dont care too much about the stereo types and myths. I think different cultures bring different customs here. Some fit in with being safe and courteous, some dont. The customs that dont work with the industry should be abandoned, the ones that do fit, will become part of it. I travel to Europe quite a bit, or at least did before covid. One of the things I want to eventually do over there, just to have done it, is drive a truck there, just even for one delivery to have done it.

My husband swears by Cafe Bustello.. he's long given up on just regular coffee-- and makes it espresso style these days!

The above posts about Hershey's... yeah-- its kinda garbage. Once you've had some good stuff from Belgium or Switzerland or even Germany-- you just won't be impressed with it anymore.

Well, flip-flops are OK, it is just wearing them with socks is unacceptable for me. But bare foot - yes, it is nice. And if course, we are not talking about jobs with pallet jacks :-)

I will refuse to go to the Olive Garden with you because it is garbage.

I cannot agree more. American Italians may want to sue this chain for making such a damage to Italian cusine...

How do you brew your tea, Andrey?

Very simple. The best way is to use a brew pot. You put a few tablespoons of tea leaves, add a little bit od boiling water, cover and wait 3-4 minutes. The liquid inside the pot will be very strong, so you need only a small amount of it, then add hot water to achieve your desired strength. Be cautios not to drink it too strong - it will be a completely different drink, commonly used in Russian prisons to get high :-) If you don't have a brewing pot, you can brew in your mug, just make sure to cover it. Tea leaves will eventually set on the bottom. There is no universal formula, you have to experiment to see how much tea leaves per cup of water you need to get it taste right.

I'm intrigued, definitely going to give it a try.

Interest of fairness-- my Calabrese husband does know a few people of questionable connection... and he's from Long Island so yeah-- not only is he picky about his Pizza (only NY Style will do-- that shizz better fold).. he is also picky about his hotdogs. (Not Nathan's? Not interested). His entire family is from Brooklyn/Long Island... every family gathering is the loudest event you can imagine.

My mom was born in Manhattan and raised on Long Island. I was born upstate and then raised in California. But I still get called out for being too loud when I speak. What gives? Coffee only, Hershey’s is a candy bar not a chocolate bar, if you take my meaning.

“ Chicago Pizza is not pizza.. its a casserole ;)” I like pizza AND Chicago “casserole.” 😆

I gotta say; I LOVE LOVE LOVE the melting pot that 🇺🇸 is! Having been to many other countries (and not just the tourist parts), I love that we can enjoy the BEST of other cultures without persecution.

😎
