My Quarter Life Crisis

December 28, 2006


I just tried to get a job, the perfect job it may have been really. Two women just came into the store and tried to bargain with me on pretty much everything in the store. They were obviously New Yorkers, I despise them usually. They spoke of my lack of marketing for the store, why […]

GM-Ford and the Nazis

December 18, 2006


Most Jews wont buy German cars, my father included, due to feelings of supporting those who supported the mass extermination of the Jews.
