Intro - Travis tries and fails to be hired as a Lyft and Uber driver.
07:39 - Recently, servers at a fast food chain I eat at regularly are starting to recognize me and know what I will order. Is this a hint that I should back out? Should I start going to another restaurant? It's not that I don't enjoy being noticed, but eating at a single establishment so much that various workers that work different shifts know you and your food preferences, yet not even your own name seems like an easy way to a dangerous place. Should I take my lunches elsewhere? -- Nervous in Newport
09:17 - Griffin screams a McDonalds pastiche of 'Welcome to the Jungle'

Is there anything I should know about before going to a nudist resort with family and friends?
I'm 13, and my friend and his family are nudists. When I'm at his house, I strip down, so I'm perfectly comfortable with being around other people in the buff. My family aren't nudists, but they invited us to go to a resort with them and we all agreed. It will be me, my dad, my mom, and my younger brother (he's 9 if that provides help). I've read the official rules online, but I want to know about the social etiquette there.
25:26 - So a while ago I got a large TV to put in the living room in my apartment so my roomates and I could enjoy hosting people for movie nights and such. One of my roomates is a mechanic and while fixing an engine, the living room started to fill up with engine parts. So because I did not expect to do much hosting while the living room was a mess, I moved the TV up to my room. Now the engine is fixed, the living room is clear, but I've gotten used to having a big TV in my room. Should I give up having such a nice luxury item in my bedroom and return the TV to the public area, or should I revel in my greed and hoard it all to myself? -- TV Hoarder On The Illinois Border

Why does Dominoes need to do a "quality check" on their pizza?
I ordered a pizza from Dominoes on-line and they gave me an up to the minute report of what they were doing. Order Placed, Prep, Bake, Quality Check, and Delivery. Well, it's kind of nice to get immediate feedback of just where my order is in the process, but I wonder -- what is the quality check stage? After they bake it and before they deliver, do they really do a quality check on the pizza?
46:27 - I'm 25 and I have a small, tight group of friends. I used to say when I got married that might best friend from high school would be my maid of honor, but lately we haven't been best friends. She now only calls my sister to hang out and I only see her if we're all together. I also am becoming closer with other friends. I'm getting married and I don't know if she still expects to be my maid of honor, but I no longer want her to be; should I talk to her about this or just make the decision? -- Fighting Friends in Philly
