post #76441 of 114871

Contemplating quitting my "real" job today. It's just getting too dangerous around here. I've been here 3 1/2 years and there have probably been 20 or more shootings within a 3 block radius, many of them fatal.

 

This was yesterday, about 20 minutes after I left for the day. Fortunately this was not a fatality.

Damn SpooPoker, nice finds. I never find quality footwear at my shops. Please give me the Joplins, thanks.

 

Does Marshalls count as thrifting? Snagged a really nice BB Makers tie yesterday, not an irregular like most BB I find there. Also, the one near me seemed to just have just received a bunch of PRL shirts, just nothing I really loved.

Looks to me like you're a suspect.

Yikes! Wes, is this the town you live in or in a nearby community?

Hmmm. I guess technically I would be. You should see the shoes I got off of him. devil.gif

No, I work in York PA, about an hour from home. My town doesn't even have their own police force. We do have a fire truck though.....and a stop light, which I believe was just installed for bragging rights. There really is no need for it....ever.

That is nutty - I'm guessing you cannot telecommute for the work you do...and must get nerve-wracking in the winter when it's cold & dark on those mean streets.  May be time for your company to hire security escorts or something.

I probably could telecommute, everything I do is on computers. I would have to get a heavy duty system at home to run the 3D software though. It really bogs down my laptop.

 

Half of my co-workers have conceal/carry permits.

Time to thrift that glock.

Thrifting in it's purest form! Cut out the middleman, right? 

 

 

 

This is NOT what I needed to see 2 weeks before moving to Newark for school lookaround.gif

Did you leave any DNA at the scene? It looks too nice to be a crap town...

Not sure that I could stand a 2 hour round trip commute everyday anymore. Also how do you do it? You drive an hour each way to work, you thrift, you take photos, you do listings... Do you sleep, do you have any human interaction other than dead bodies in the street puzzled.gif

 

Would taking a lesser paying job that you could work from home with cover your expenses - the money you save from not commuting? I would seriously consider it. My first tech job was with Lucent, and I commuted 100 miles each way everyday. That lasted about a year before I told my wife we were moving nearer or I was quitting because I had been falling asleep on the drive... Now I live 40 miles away from my work place, but work from home all but 1 day a month and when I travel. It is heavenly being able to roll out of bed 5 minutes before a meeting and taking it in my PJs icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nope...took his skeet blanket too!

 

Anyone remember the Live song, "Shit Town"? Well, that's about their home town of York PA. 

 

Th pic is deceiving, it's right on the edge of a city park (right side of the street).

 

Ask Greg613 what he though of it after he went out after dark to this place....

Minimal sleep....Human interaction on the weekends. 

 

I am only working here until I "buy my Ferrari" (pay off the house). I don't need to work here, and am basically using this job to save money for my early retirement while I do so. I put the max amount into 401K and the company has a great match program plus the pay is great. The problem is I hate it.  On the plus side, work is a great central location for all my thrifting adventures. I can be in either Lancaster, Harrisburg or Baltimore within 45 minutes.

 

My original plan was to quit here once my student loans were paid off this December, but my wife didn't seem to be on board with that. I told her I'd toss in the house too and she was game. She may be rethinking that today. She already texted me "quit" this morning after she saw the above photo.

I love that ATM sign in the window of the store. Can you imagine being the armoured car crew that loads that machine?

and FLINT where they protest cuts to police & fire by burning down abandoned houses....

 

Serious note though... I'm sure for under $1K you can build a desktop to handle it and save the money on the commute (and stay alive).
