It's like what crickets do, except I do it better.

I actually had a dream about your Maybach last night. It was a very, very light pastel pink and the entire interior was filled with water like a hot tub. You were driving it around while lounging in the hot tub. All rapper's heads exploded.

It suuuucks. I just hate the pressure and bullshit. I've been very forthright with every salesman. I tell them, "look, here's why I'm buying a car, here's the maximum I'm willing to pay, and I'm not going over that. If you don't have something on the lot that will work, no worries. I'm not in a rush or desperate, so call me if something comes on the lot that you think will work."

Despite all of this, I'm still being shown cars that are more than I want to pay, and I'm still getting the, "if you like this car, you better buy it right now. We're very busy, and it could be gone tomorrow" pressure.

The worst was Sunday. I told the guy flat out, "I don't need this car, and I'm buying it for a very specific purpose. Don't waste everyone's time showing me something you can't deal on at what I want to spend." Two hours, a test drive, and a bunch negotiations later, I'm leaving the dealership without a ride because he showed me a car that he couldn't get to my number. Thanks for wasting my time on Father's Day, you fuck.

As I mentioned on Facebook, I feel that having two Maybachs in the house would be a bit ostentatious.

This was actually the first time where I haven't let my guard down even momentarily. In the past, I've softened up briefly only to have to spend a bunch of time fixing the damage that does. Now I just let the hate flow through me.

I'm pissed because the inevitable happened. My brother and his wife are getting a divorce. Everyone could see it happening from miles away before they go married. I'm happy that they're apart, but things are getting nasty in regards to custody of their kids. I don't know what to do - my parents hinted at me taking time off and going to san francisco to assess whats going on.

I balked at that idea - but in reality they're both in their 70's and old so its something I really have to consider. My wife is worried about potentially lending out money for legal help for my brother - honestly I am too. my brother and his ex are by nature volatile people who will fight to the death for the sake of fighting. my gut is telling me not to get involved.

This is a terrible situation for everyone involved. For whatever my opinion is worth, I think your gut feeling is probably right. Be there for your brother, but don't risk direct/financial involvement.

One of my student loans was transferred to a different servicer. The payment date is the 21st and I have received nothing in writing, as promised, with instructions on how to proceed. Also have not seen a response to an e-mail I sent. I can just picture the payment not going through and the hassle that will ensue. angry.gif

You can't just send the amount that you normally send?

That would be really cool to have such an car. How did I get in and out of the car, though, without all the water ecscaping? Also, what did I wear while I was driving in the hot tub car? I'd hate to ruin my suits and ties and shoes by sitting in hot water for the whole length of my commute.

Who do I send it to? I signed up with the new provider, but they have none of my loan information on the account. They had my personal info pre-loaded. confused.gif

I'm not sure how you got in and out, but it was open air. Like a big convertible. You wore no shirt and pink pants and brown suede soggy loafers.

You had a haircut that looked kind of like this:

I clearly did not look like that in your dream. You had that image ready to go, just waiting for a chance to use it. The real question is, why did you have that image at the ready? (Hint: because you have feelings for that man is why.)

Well, it is one of the first things that pop up when you google, "bald mullet".

Well in your real life musings, don't picture me as looking like that man. Do feel free to picture me in the pastel pink Maybach with the hot tub, though.

that makes me want to punch them in the face when they do that.

I had some scary dreams last night.

I know this is a sign of what a twisted person I am but I actually like negotiating car deals. Friends often have me negotiate their deals for them.
