Yeah Douglas, classy as hell!
Car talk on youtube. People really have no fucking idea what they're talking about. It's like boxing talk. People just pull complaints out of their ass.
Working 8am to midnight 7 days a week and most of the time it feels like we are working to stand still. Customers with unreasonable expectations and suppliers with ego issues make for one angry phonecall after another.
Christ... What do you do?
Yep. This. Good for you, mang.
FLMM, good decision. that kind of thinking, and behavior, will serve you well in your marriage.
Yeah, thanks, but it was really a lot harder decision than I'm making it out to be. When my wife first told me, my exact words were "fuck that, we don't owe them a damn thing. Unilateral mistake, completely unenforceable". Even my initial email that I had typed out only offered them 50%. The more I thought about it though - I was like, so I'm willing to do 50% of the right thing? I'm one of those guys that rants about how we have to make laws for everything because our culture no longer judges/forces people to do the right thing. It was hard to actually walk the walk.
im sure it was. a G is a significant amount of money for the vast majority of people, certainly for me. not easy to part with, especially when one has fair reason not to.
This is basically what people mean when they say "when the chips are down". You behaved honorably, which is not just something to be proud of, but worth a damn sight more than $1k. I only hope I have the strength to do the right thing when necessary.
GAAAH, I was about to get tickets for Willie Nelson's Railroad Revival (stops close to the house for a show) - and it's cancelled. Apparently things get complicated out on the rails or something.
Damn. It. All.
Vegetarians on business trips to the Midwest:
WTF is it with Toronto traffic? I had to drive into town for a quick face to face meeting (the office was east of the Don Valley Parkway) right after lunch. Took me 30 minutes to get in of course in the west bound lanes count them not one but two accidents one near the CNE and the other near Spadina on the elevated section of the Gardiner Expressway. Took me two hours to leave Toronto, yes two hours. To the D-bags who weren't paying attention and rear ending people in front of them because they followed two closely on the Gardiner. Thanks for wasting my time along with thousands of other people.
I have no idea why anyone would want to drive to work downtown when the GO train is cheaper, less stressful and someone else is doing the driving.
just smoke a doobie in his honor.
pathetic. no hate to you, my bro.
good for you
also, I bet you were feeling a little reamed out by them after the wedding, right? its easy to say "hey they surely made a fortune on us and cheated us on some things, so we get ours back" but it really is better to do the right thing, espectially at the begining of your new life
Is your boss Chinese?
