It has kept me alive during unemployment and I am no longer doing regular shopping at a supermarket because I am done paying high prices and getting ripped off. Now if only their BluRay titles were discounted like their other products. That waiting list is on hold until I get a new job.
No no no, thank you.
I have worked at standard union rate of $200.00 an hour, making $10,000 grand a week, then managed a coffee shop at $15.00 an hour, I have also worked with very famous ent. clients and due to note doing "coke" with them, had them become nervous and not trust me, a moral call, and then lose work, I have had my roommate a band member of Poison and going to one of their multimillion dollar homes, I have seen things come full circle, seen the seedy side of the business which I think has jaded me. Now I am a humble person who from time to time, may bash windows then mac, but never a persons status on where they are in life.
Know one grows up saying, I want to be poor and work at Walmart or similar. I could set up some girls and do a porn site and make a lot of money and be good at it, but that;s not me, it goes against my moral compass, so I deal with the cards I have been dealt with hopes of success being a nice guy, (harder than being the bad guy, as I have been that a little, but got on the right road before it was too late) and hope that it all works out.
Your message was very inspiring, especially for those that have seen both the richness and poor of their life and when I think about the post of taking 80% of Apple shoppers and putting them in Walmart, I can't help but snicker as you are right, everyone likes to feel rich and walking into an Apple store with some girl on your side, makes some feel that way, when I was a kid, I was renting SUITES in Hotels at $300 an night, that was in the late 80's, can't imagine the prices now, but I was a self absorbed punk.
I then married the right women, and because of her, am on a road that puts others first.
Again, thanks for the inspiration. ..
