How the hell do you guys only have 2 cars?

I'm trying to get down to 3 before the new house and I doubt that will happen

Shit, man.

On the bright side maybe that qualifies you to be Zach Braff's quintessential manic pixie dream girl.

Nah. I married a great woman. Not a dumbass.

69fastback Well my wife’s car got totaled tonight and I’m home for a couple of days but my truck is in Fort Lauderdale so we have no car. That’s fun.

I just hope they know I brought my stapler from home. It's a red Swingline.



Sales are good, but shareholders say profit still isn't high enough. Cut a bunch of jobs to boost profit, cash out stock, get bonuses and bail.

I'm 100%%%%% fucking certain when quality starts to go to shit they'll all be sitting around saying to each other

Then your boss walks up behind you: "hey can you come talk to me for a minute". Then by 12 pm you're pounding beers at the bar because you're unemployed.

As long as they give you severance, won't deny unemployment, and you can either find another job due to skillset or are willing to move to where the jobs are, funemployment isn't too bad.

Best of luck dude, that shit fucking blows. Hopefully you can ride it out though.

Maybe Trump will give them a tax break and they'll see the error of their ways and they'll trickle all that tasty golden juice down to you. I hear that's how it works in the real world. MBA's and accountants love giving people jobs.

One time I sold an old POS droid to a kid for $40, 3 Xbox games and headphones.

Only one game worked. The headphones didn't.

But I got $40 for the phone which was 80x what it was worth.
