    Worst bankruptcy clients ever. Every time I talk to them they have suddenly remembered another creditor. This couple owned like 20 different businesses in the last 7 years and most of them are bankrupt. Well I was about to turn in my 2nd amended schedule yesterday when one of them sent an email telling me about 2.3 MILLION dollars in secondary obligations that just popped into their heads. SMH. How do you just forget defaulting on 2.3 million dollars?

    they were expecting that I, the red headed forign devil, would read between the lines. honestly, I should have been sure to clarify what they wanted, because I remember being a little confused and thinking that I might not have gotten all the nuances of what they were thinking, and I was right, I didn't. but that is life. nobody died because of it.

    Everyone is pissing me off today. People are posting dumb shit on FB, seems like people I am coming into contact with @ work are being thickheaded, lots to do, and goddammit I CAN'T WORK WITH THIS KIND OF STUPIDITY!

    I'm probably going to end up going off on somebody on FB today.

    yeah i get the feeling you're far too direct for japan.

    you probably weren't supposed to say "hey i need you to set me up a meeting with the CEO" so much as "oh my goodness i hope you will relate my everlasting devotion to this project and my respect and willingness to bend over to your most esteemed dear leader."

    I have the same impression...

    The straight forward approach is not received well by the Japanese psyche.

    I remember as a kid coming home with all kinds of shit on a regular basis, stray animals, a 20 kilogram boulder that I thought was cool etc; My mother would always ask me things like;
    Fangmum: "where is your school bag and your shoes?"
    Fang: "Umm I can't remember, maybe on the sports oval".

    Also pissing me off: Craigslist Scammers.

    I should have known better than to a) list something on CL and b) respond to the first two "is this still available?" e-mails, but these are my responses:

    and

    Now, I may be a rookie here in selling something through CL, but I ain't that dumb.

    Can it be pulled behind a pickup truck? I'll come take it off your hands for the asking price. Do you accept personal checks?

    Not without severe modifications, or a hovercraft mod on your pickup. When we bought it, we were told by a few people we would have no trouble sailing it to Mexico or New Orleans. It has a 5' draft and weighs 6500#

    And, FWIW, we put in a lot of work, but some work remains, so the asking price is pretty reasonable.

    I have hit literally all but two thrift stores in a 20 mile radius of my house in the last week.

    My finds:

    A chewed up brioni shirt made for a morbidly obese gorilla.

    A chewed up brooks brothers OCBD that would have been nice if it was in good condition, colors I liked, or my size.

    Two brooks brothers US made egyptian cotton dress shirts that would have fit me perfectly if they didn't have orange collars and pit stains down to the waist band.

    A bunch of NWOT Lauren Ralph Lauren "Men's Dress Shirts" which was particularly interesting because I'm fairly certain that they're a ladies brand, corroborated by the fact they all buttoned the wrong way.

    Hopefully the Salvy Army up north and the Trenton Goodwill will yield better results, but I pretty emphatically doubt that will bear any fruit.

    This is a great example of the kind of stupidity I have been seeing everywhere today. Is there something in the water?
