wheres the anger,you asked me a question so i answered it.

plus to be completely honest,i wasnt gonna bring it up (and the fact it took this long is testament to that) you made a couple of wisecracks about my beautifull asian queen when i was timed out so you knew i couldnt respond,now that pissed me off..but the new frenchy let it go.

for now.

so dont push me.

and yeah,dude your outfits are horrible.sorry man but thats just my opinon,this coming from a guy who wears teh same shit every day so dont fret.

Don't push you? Are you going to e-beat me up? I'm off to bed. Feel free to PM me one of those karate kicks.

AND banning those motherfucking giant race-car shopping carts from the grocery stores!  Kids whine for them, so moms get them to stop their shitty kid from whining...if they're gone, kids can't whine for something they don't see.  Damn things take up 2/3 of an aisle and you can't get by, and the moms drive them like it's a limousine they don't know the length of, right into your Achilles Tendon. 

 

I take the hangars off while waiting in line; top buttons already undone before I get to the cashier.  I help them un-hangar anything I did get to, put the hangars on the empty rack, return the cart etc - in return I have had things brought to me before being put out for general sale.  It's nice to have something to do while in line and sometimes unexpectedly pays off later.  I just do it to keep busy and not be useless.

I wish.  Winning the lottery would be the absolute worst thing that could happen to me.  I'd have one of each.  One of each what?  Car I've always wanted, girl I've always wanted, housefuls of MCM furniture (in each of the 5+ required houses: city, country, lake, beach, foreign), and so on.  But I still spend $4/month on lottery tickets, hoping I never win.  And drop a pile in Las Vegas a couple times a year.  Entertainment.  Roll the dice, buy the unknown tweed.

People with carts drive me absolutely insane especially when they block aisles with them, i will straight up shove them out of my way

 

^^^  You MUST have the luxury of private transport.  I usually go by train or bus and use an old naval rucksack with a shoulder strap to carry everything in and forego a bunch of plastic bags.  Believe me, when you have to carry everything from store to store on your back and especially when you're pulling decent hauls on a 3+ store day, a cart is where it's at!  lol8[1].gif

The vast majority of people in this country do. It's not so much a luxury as it is the standard.

how about the douche that  decides to  take off whatever jacket he is wearing ,put it on the suits rack and try on jackets right in the aisle.and when you try to move their stuff they ask you why you are touching their shit.

i have actually picked up peoples stuff and flung it across to the next side/aisle with them looking in disbelief.once in awhile someones says something and i tell them the fucking changeroom is over there!!!!!!!!!

I have like 60 of those or similar hangers. They're mostly crap and pale in comparison to the well made branded hangars. I've had no less than 3 break from the impact of me placing them in the closet.

I seriously considered doing a modified thrift fit yesterday. Had a navy BB suit acquired from pnutpug off AAAC, a Ben Silver button down from Grendel, and a Zegna ties from GMMcL. Thought it looked pretty good.
