Co-host Ainsley Earhardt then piggybacked off (nói dựa vào) of Kilmeade’s argument (lý lẽ) of how a minimum wage (lương) l job such as waiting tables is “not meant to be a career (sự nghiệp)” before going off on a tangent about tipping (boa tiền) at places like McDonald’s — where employees do not earn tips.

5 Mistakes (lỗi sai) You Must Avoid In Your Job Interview. One of the key mistakes you can make is going off on a tangent. During an interview, there will always be a limited (giới hạn) time where an employer is interested and attentive (chú ý) to what you have to say. You don’t want to waste this on information that doesn’t matter or that isn’t relevant (liên quan).
