the good part of today was finding an $8 pair of sunglasses at a convenience store that looked good on me. the price is not the issue, the point is i can never find anything that works with my narrow face. the last pair that "worked" like this i picked up while i was dating miki... heh.



(yes, i shaved again. and if you've got to make a pop-culture reference, skip the matrix, terminator, and referring to me as a "gq model", because those have been covered.)

when i got to work today i checked the dealership mail and found a few articles in an industry rag worth distributing to fellow employees. management was pleased as punch that i took the initiative to do this, i guess- but by the end of the day i'd blown that out by losing interest in the idea of selling a guy with unrealistic expectations of getting a top-of-the-line WRX for under invoice. they're pissed, but "units out the door" don't do me any f***ing good. i'll wait for the customer who's willing to give us a fair shake on the car and throw a little commission my way- because frankly, i have no incentive to do otherwise; and with my wages being garnished, performance is now a matter of survival rather than comfort. if they want to alter that attitude, they can make it worth my time or stfu about it. thanks for reading another rant, if you bothered.

and if memory serves, i wasn't wearing a shirt and tie then either :P

i want new glasses BAD.

i won't recommend the 7-11 to anyone else, but it worked for me... just please do not go with this trendy giant 3" diameter cover-your-whole-face thing that's popular right now. please. i hate that shit. but that's a whole different rant.

um no. you did have cool boots though...

i want some new glasses almost exactly like the ones i have now, except with a new prescription that allows me to actually see :) i doubt 7-11 can do that for me, but it did a good job for you.

Who is garnishing your wages?

Also, somewhere along the line since I've known you, you became less "awkward looking scrawny guy" and more "hot." Congrats. :P

Is that income tax at the state level?? Are you concerned about federal issues too?

yes. and no, because this is concerning '99/2K and i've never heard word one from the fed about it. i think california is the only place i ran afoul.

i'd much prefer it if you were on the inside like me, screaming and kicking the bigots and the corrupt out :-)

Which dealership is this? Is this the new place?

nah, still subaru. i'm waffling on whether or not i like the idea of the donated-car place- don't know if i'll be able to get as excited about donated junkpiles as i do about turbo imprezas and legacies.

But I thought you quit semi-dramatically? I'm confused.

i did, but when i showed up for my commission check, they asked me to come back- and with the wage garnishment going on it seemed like the best option.
