Six PackPosted: August 27, 2012
I encounter many different people in my day-to-day life. It takes all kinds. This I know without a doubt. There are all kinds and then some.
An example from my day…
Joe Blow: I need $500 to get my car out of impound so I can sell it to the salvage yard. The salvage yard is going to give me $200.
Me: You will be out $300 by doing this. It doesn’t make sense, what kind of vehicle is it?
Joe Blow: A 1992 Buick La Sabre. I also need money to get diapers and baby food for my kid.
Me: (Does some things on my computer because I have to….)
Joe Blow: (Phone rings…on the phone with his wife.) Yah, there was $16 in the piggy bank. Enough for a pizza and a six-pack… (looks up and sees me waiting for him to get off of the phone and listening to him at the same time) Um, err, um a six-pack of diapers. I’ll be out in a few minutes. (Gets off the phone.) So you think I can borrow some money?
Me: Drops head to desk, praying to knock myself unconscious.
