    Well, it's been a nice run. 16 years of contiguous taxi ownership. Stripped it yesterday. Scrapped it today.
    Getting into a "lease to own" on Friday which the company registers, insures and maintains. They're nuts but it's only $500 down.
    16 years is a long time. I've been looking at jobs on craigslist but nothing offers this type of flexibility. Gonna keep looking at jobs.

    When you ain't got nothing, you ain't got nothing to lose.

    Go sales, been looking for a few years for a decent one but fortunate that this is actually working out that I can be patient for a good one.

    A penguin takes his car into the shop.

    The mechanic looks it over and says “I think you blew a seal”

    The penguin says “no that’s just a little bit of ice cream”

    You already hang on a rideshare forum, you ever consider joining the dark side?

    I also had a small serving of stir fried green papaya. I suspect sardines were involved. I dislike sardines.

    He’s in Charlotte iirc. I’m sure he’s eager to chase that +$1.25 surge
