    How many layoffs a year do I suffer before I tell them to bite me?

    Use the lay-off time to look for something else—that way if you find something new, great! And if not? You’ll still have something to go back to. Can’t hurt to try, right?

    This. Or use the time to promote your skills and pick up some side jobs. Or learn a new side gig, like flipping stuff online, I have recently picked this up and honestly it is going quite well. Well enough that I hope to give up my 2nd job by the end of the year and focus more on flipping.

    Garage sales - estate sales and auctions - are glorious

    Yes they are! I am addicted to going to them and have apps downloaded to plan out my Friday afternoons and Sundays when I am not working already!

    Quoted to add most anything will sell, research it a bit before buying if you can or trust you gut, I trusted my guy at an estate sale last week and picked up this ugly *kitten* vintage fieldmaster trucker style hat that appeared to have never been worn for $1. Listed it Sunday night and had 4 offers in 5 minutes, someone else swooped in and bought it at full asking price before I could even counter those offers. $25 profit for about 10 minutes of work, every little bit adds up.

    I don't know what's wrong with me but at first glance I thought this was a cake

    LOL now I want cake!

    Well that long list of to do’s I had today has been put on hold because of a twisted ankle :angry:

    This is getting mentally tucked away for the next time I'm deciding between "nap" or "productivity"

    I've never twisted my ankle while taking a nap.......!!!!

    Idk, I woke up yesterday with a really sore and swollen knee. Only thing I could think of is I did something to it in my sleep. Trust me, I've been a lazy piece of *kitten* lately, it wasn't from exercise.

    I think love or the idea of love just seems like a better option than loneliness for some - until that partner starts wearing on them and that infatuation feeling leaves then love sucks and they would rather be alone again - it’s a vicious cycle of this human condition yo 🤷‍♂️ we are a bit high maintenance I spose maybe

    I would like to believe it only starts to suck if you are with the wrong person, but what do I know?

    Why did Tacos Bell take away caramel apple empanadas?

    They are jerks. This limited time only thing with nacho fries is infuriating

    I think the real question is what took this so long?!

    No plumbers crack and easy access, win/win.
