I'm glad your doing well, buddy. I can't blame you for looking for something more "legal"....not sure how that outfit can get away with that.....

Thats great lucky. Hard work never killed anyone...right away at least. And after a lifetime of hard work we get to pass away to a better place, so it is all worth it! At least that is what the boss tells me as he drives off in his Corvette for a round of golf. Plus it beats despair; we are usually just too busy and too tired to get depressed. And on top of all that, there is the satisfaction of a job well done, so who needs to be reimbursed fairly for their hard work? Apparently not the working man anymore. I know because I am a member of the over worked underpaid majority, and consider myself lucky to have a job at all! Keep up the good work Lucky, better days are ahead I just know it.

Worst case don't forget 7-11 pays 11.25/hr starting with a large benefit package.



No word from PepBoys? Have you tried any of the others (Hibdon's, Firestone, etc)

I can't even remember the name of the street his new house is on or I'd drop by to see what it looks like with furniture and stuff in it. Really nice 3 bedroom house with a huge fenced back yard, perfect when you've got a 2 year old and two dogs.



Ah well, I've got to "pay part of my rent" by going out and doing a little yard work. I've got to transplant a small bush to another location and put some flowers in where it was.

i'm glad to hear you are still fighting Lucky. Best of luck to you and your family in Oklahoma.


Yea, we'll make an Okie Hick out of him in no time. So far he seems to enjoy everything being 1/2 the price it was back where he was living and we've got jobs everywhere. Matter of fact we've got a bunch of temp agencies that if you just show up at 6:30 or so in the morning they'll find you $10/hr work and you get paid on a daily basis. Probably his hardest adaptation will be learning to adapt to how really laid back we are here as opposed to a nervous rat race.



He'll also have a bunch of new slang to get used to. Here and in most of Texas we kind of speak a different language.

Ha! I get you on the slang. My aunt from Tulsa was always interesting with conversation. You never knew if you should be offended. She was always smiling so we figured all was good. But, there was that one time she walked in front of the fan and let one rip..It was hot in Tulsa that day. I can still taste it. Horrible.
