What is backpage?

People who have ebay listing with "buy it now" and "or best offer" who won't accept any offers no matter how close to their, "buy it now" price. I mean, fuck, stop this farce and just put, "buy it now".

I saw a guy standing in front of the mirror in the bathroom for quite a while making sure that his hair was just perfect. He was making tiny adjustments that wouldn't be noticeable to anyone but himself. And he was wearing ill-fitting sweatpants and a sweatshirt with our university logo. (I noticed this because he was standing in front of the sink I needed to use to wash the chalk off my hands. )

I guess the takeaway is that some people don't even consider being well dressed as an important part of their self presentation. That seems odd to me.

(Also, I don't get why some of the text came out in italics. confused.gif )

On the other side, some people spend thousands on clothes and balk at the idea of spending more than $10 on a haircut.

I do not spend any money on haircuts.

A quick google search reveals that you are the only person in the world who uses that expression. smile.gif

THIS.

There is this guy I see in the restroom at work seemingly everytime I go in there. He is so carefully primping his hair, spending forever making sure everything is just right.

And he's wearing black dress pants that are several sizes too large and about 6 inches too long. A ratty white shirt that looks like it hasn't been washed in a month. And an ill-fitting bright red sweater that's also 2 sizes too large and looks all weirdly stretched out. And of course, square toed plastic shoes.

And he's always wearing the same thing. Everytime I see him, I just want to smack him and tell him his hair is the least of his concerns.

He's working within his confines.

Edit: fucking auto-correct. It changes correct spellings into something completely odd and fixes only half of the misspellings.

It's because you used brackets around a statement that contains the letter "I." Did you notice that "I do not use PowerPoint, so I get chalk on my hands" doesn't appear in your post, despite being in there when quoted? This is because it was eaten when the system recognized the brackets and "I" as an italics tag.

Small timers. I have no problem throwing down 12 Washingtons when I go to the barbershop.

HOLY SHIT!!!! How have I not known about this site until now????? How many of the escorts are real and or not cops? I might throw down $250 just to say I've banged a prosto.

I'm surprised some of you have never heard of the site. Browsing through is pretty interesting--I've found two girls I once worked with or with to school with on there.
