The never ending slog of sh*t I my family goes through never ends. Hey, at least we're not in Florida.
sorry to hear that Exo

My grandmother just wanted it to all go away. We never did anything with it. We could have owned that town.

God damn, where's Christopher Dorner when you need him. And was your grandmother cleaned out or is she still financially okay?

****ing unbelievable! These bastards who target old people are the worst. At least if we get caught we can do the facepalm and blame our stupidity. Older people are so easy to convince about things. God I hope she's all right. ****ing ****s. May they die roaring the evil bastards.

Potatoes are the devil. I love potatoes, but they no longer love me back. As a produce stocker who now grabs more potatoes than my own balls they leave a dust under your fingernails that can not be washed off and the dust also dries my hands the **** out. My hands are always ashy now and some of the skin on my right index finger has split. ****ing potatoes.

Also **** pears. They're not making my life worse but if you have any length of fingernails they will slice into the weak, coastal elite liberal skin of a pear like a hot knife through butter.

How'd you think Biggie went from ashy to classy? You gotta do your potato time.

A year ago my grandmother sent all of her money ($60K) to a guy who told her he'll marry her. Obviously it was a scam. The guy was telling her stories about him being a soldier in Syria and needing money to come back to her.
