That car also has been there for a while, and I don't know why it is not selling.

$2500 to repair.

Last year we replaced the tbelt (~$700) and last month put on a whole new exhaust ($1200)

So, after $4400 in repairs, I would probably be able to get about $4500 for it.

I'll pay $100 for it as is, and come pick it up!

Who pays $1,200 for a Subaru exhaust when so many boy ricers sell their stock stuff for cheap?

I hate going to to Tilted Kilt/Twin Peaks/Hooters bars by myself when the wife is out of town.

Without fail, there always the fat, 45 year old, creepy guy who makes $30k/year that thinks he has a chance with the smoking 23 year olds running the bar.

How does this effect you? How does your wife being there change things?

I don't like going to those places because the waitresses sometimes will engage in small talk. I'm too introverted for that ****, take my order and go "flirt" with that fat gross guy over there.

I was thinking also how do you know everyone's salary? Maybe they dress like they make $30/year to see if the 23 year olds are not gold diggers.

What the matter, you don't want to pay the "convenience" fee for them to do absolutely nothing?

I still remember when they butt raped me with some tickets.
Ticket price from them was $150. When I finally got the physical tickets, the value posted on them....$80.

I once went to buy Metallica tickets. I was ok with the price, going through the purchase process, click the buy button to finalize.... nope.
This was the posted message:
Sorry, the tickets you wanted to purchase are no longer available.
But we got these tickets available on our sister site.
Shows the same exact tickets I was going to purchase, for double the price.

Yep, its rape.

I went to the Palladium some time ago and purchased tickets straight from their window. They charged me a "convenience fee" ($5). I should have questioned them about it. Ive been going there for years and this was the first time. If anything, it was an "inconvenience fee" because I had to drive down there to purchase and pick them up ...

someone who didn't have time to source one. The exhaust completely fell apart 2 days before the inspection was due. Also, finding an impreza exhaust that fits her car (i.e. old enough) around here that isn't rusted to **** is not easy.

Kind of a gripe: apparently I woke up at 3:30 AM yelling at my fiancÚ: 'GET DOWN, SHUT UP, THEY HAVE OUR CREDIT SCORE!' I then stole all of the blankets and pillows and went right back to sleep. She did not. Now I'm listening to her gripe about my dreams, like I have control over it.

I once sleep-punched my gf . I heard her say "ouch, you punched me..."I then faked being asleep and fell asleep in like 5 secs (after laughing internally)

I did warn her that I do that.
