I tend bar and when serves struggle or have a bad night, I always tell them to take care of themselves first and worry about others second. I believe this is what America needs to do. Take care of ourselves first and when we get back on the right path, it will be easier to turn around and help other countries. But it starts with taking care of us first.
It's okay. You don't have to tip me. Take care of yourself first.
I didn't make any money tonight. I got stiffed three times.
I need a job!
There are limited jobs here and we should take care of ourselves first.
