Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5346

post #80176 of 85782
I had a friend who was a realtor do this. He had a good year, spent like it was going to last forever and, well, it didn't. I never found out all the details, but this guy either went full-out bankrupt or turned in/liquidated all his assets and took the "settled at a reduced amount" hit on his credit report.

Long story short, literally his first call to me after all this crap blew over was to ask me to co-sign for a lease on a brand new Touareg for him. I don't think a lot of people understand or care how credit works -- maybe we need debtor's prison in North America.

Late to the party but stuff like this seems like a no brainer. You are a UMC DINK so you have de facto carte blanche to spend inconsequential sums like this for great adventures. You clearly aren't going to run out of money and there's nowhere for it to go when you die so may as well enjoy it while you can. If your passion is hanging out backstage them why not spend a few grand here and there to do it.

I have a habit of when I have been writing but need to stop in order to handle papers I put my pen into my mouth as temporary storage. Here is the thing though I have the worst gag reflex of mankind to where I get feeling of volmint whenever I put that pen into my mouth. Why do I keep doing that? (Don't no one make untoward comments this is a honest post of serious matter.)

Okay here's another thing now that I'm on a roll: I do not have any aunts or uncles or cousins or anything like that because both my parents were only childs. And so maybe I have no business whatsoever even weighing in on this matter, but I really dislike the pronunciation of "aunt" as "ont" or "awnt." It is like nails on the chalkboard to me.

Look at it as a blessing.  Your body is just preventing non-food items from interfering with your palate.  Can't enjoy port and byrrh on account of ink in the mouth.

You're spot on but sometimes this stuff is more of a mental barrier than anything else. For most of my life 5k ranged from an outrageous fortune to a year's worth of savings and I don't want to end up like the fools in the last several posts. I know, 5k is not going to make or break me, but it's a mental thing.

Piob loves it when rock stars enter his "backstage."

I am a candidate for an important teaching award to where observers are coming to my classes observe what I do in dat classroom setting see if I do educating right. Well today I got observers coming what they are going to witness is me telling the students they did almost impossibly badly on their quizzes of which looks like I didn't do very good at educating. I am going to give a inspirational speech about how the sky's the limit if they get off their asses and put in some effort apply themselves with dedication aforethought to their studies such as like Adam Wainwright applies himself to pitching (remember that I am in St. Louis the Cards are always a source of inspiration for the people).

This is really spot on.  I don't understand the draw, but Pio if you enjoy it, go for it.  You won't end up like these other people because based on other posts you have a savings fund and you have been saving for retirement pretty well.

I lol everytime piob says he isn't rich and then talks about owning a power pole saw so he can cut down brush (but then leave it for the landscapers to actually clean up).

He's referring to a different type of power pole.

Or spend $5k to spend an hour with a 67 year old British singer.
