    I’ll do that if you pay me back with a monthly interest rate. I’m guessing the loan would be around $1200.

    Damn, I've never been on a plane. I didn't realize it was so much. NVM. Have a good time.

    Louisville hosts a huge 3 day event called Louder than Life every year in the fall. Go every year, man. Staind was a few years ago, but man, they kicked ass. Would love to see him do his country songs at some point. “Country Boy” is one of my favorite songs

    I didn't realize the singer of Staind became a country singer until this morning. I'm completely out of touch and live in a bubble.

    SW runs commercials that are less than 100. I never looked.


    Just googled it. $261 round trip. How much are tickets to the show? I basically want a reason to take a trip, meet you, and see a childhood favorite band.

    I'll be ok if it don't work out.

    It's $396.96 if you did a 1 day trip.

    Flight leaves Memphis at 6:00 AM. Connects in Houston. Arrive in El Paso at 9:00 AM. Thursday March 26th
    Flight departs El Paso at 1:35 PM the following day. Connects in Houston. Arrive in Memphis at 9:35 PM. Friday March 27th

    Tickets to the show I'm guessing are around $150 per?

    Hotel = $100 ish per.

    That's actually half of what I said.

    $650 + interest

    Where did you get $261? I went to Southwest since they're usually the cheapest. You hitching a ride on FedEx?

    $100 is usually for flights from like DFW to Houston or ones where there's multiple trips made daily. Not something like Memphis to El Paso.

    Don't need a hotel, can buy sandwitches anywhere, back on plane. In and out.
    You choose place to eat.

    I'm serious, if you're serious. I don't want to show up and not have tickets.

    The wife (my wife) can't come which works even better. You won't be distracted by her glorious rack all day/night. She really has the best tits ever. Not small, but not too big, just enough to be jiggly, but not saggy.

    That's not the day of the show. It's $310 on the 26th/27th. And that's a flight that leaves at 5:00 AM out of El Paso.

    Haha, I'm not taking you to the airport the morning after the show at 3:30 AM. You can take a cab from the bar/concert and hang out in the airport though.

    Also, don't get your hopes up. I have to ask my wife first and I'm guessing she'll say what the hell considering we aren't supposed to leave town starting in late March.

    You know multiple ways to get in touch with me. Let me know a head of time.

    *Note, I'm laughing at the thought of you the next day.

    We'll see. Seriously don't get your hopes up though. The stars will have to align for this to happen. It's just an idea right now.

    I've never been but I'm guessing the mexican food there will be unlike any you've ever had (in a very good way). But that would be a terrible idea to eat mexican food before and after drinking. The worst, actually.

    I've never been to El Paso, but I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't come back home with anything but bad decisions.

    Not sure I spelled that, said that right, you get the gist. I'm down for bad times. I have a lot of scars to prove it.

    I'm reigning runner up in the last bar fight I've been in.



    For real though, I'm bsing. having fun etc. The id in me is country, the rest is professional.Eyeroll

    I love f'n with ppl. Guy was walking across the lot.

    "Hey!!! Do you love the cock?"

    what?

    "Come closer do you cum in socks?"

    Still can't hear you

    "Can pitchers really balk?

    I'm not sure, what?

    "Do you like to walk?

    Well no, but I have no choice.

    "Where do you work?, Lets get some general information."

    It's like fishing for money. He had none, but I still reeled him in.

    Boss brought up my looks. Said I'm looking "shaggy", I knew I shouldn't have worn the button down shirt, 3 piece suit, full windsor knot, and wingtip shoes. *edit, I have some very nice watches and even pocket watches.Don't wear or carry any of them. Just like a cell phone, they bother me.

    I responded by asking where I ranked this year in total sales and front end profit. As a whole on the family of dealerships and not just our one store. He went back to doing what he does best. "Write this up."

    *my hair and beard are getting a bit unruly. Laughing I look like a pig wearing lipstick. But hey, my sales are on point.

    I'll put on a #2 guard tonight and shave my whole head one length.

    I'll stop, but it's amazing how one thing can affect an entire mood or day. I'm completely in my feelings about the "how you looK'" comlex. I set and currently hold records at our dealership (cars in a day, most profit in a day, most cars in a month, profit in a month, profit on a single car, most cars sold to one person etc), and I've not been here long.

    Guy tells me I'm shaggy. I was going to cut my hair beard anyway, but now if I do it, he wins. wtf.

    taking the high road. going to carry thru with my own plans. f'n asshole.

    He can't actually do shit. The guy couldn't fire me if he wanted. He just didn't like my look today and brought up my "shaggy" hair. I'm not going to make fun of his looks and how I'm pretty sure he's "snap" from Rice Krispies.. I'm better than that.

    Again, I need a haircut, I have huge beard, but it's not for him to point out. Do I bring up his closing skills are weak sauce?

    *ultimate insult, I bet he put his shirt in the dryer instead of ironing it. boom roasted.

    He hurt my feelings talking about my looks.

    @SNU0821 which ETF do you buy? I'm in the process of doing the same as you where I'm gonna buy in soon but I gotta wait for the overnight holds. I buy SWTSX which is a Schwab fund. I do that annually for my SEP but I buy SWPPX monthly that's auto withdrawn. I feel like there's probably better options but they've performed pretty well for me so far.
