      I take my sprayer and pretend im in Vietnam circa 1967 spraying Agent Orange all over my gravel drive way about one a month. Then I spray the neighbors yard, but that's another story.

      Home appraisers are quite possibly the most self-absorbed, over-confident douche canoes on the planet. Hey *******, learn how to do your job, and accept the fact that you are human and therefore fallible. 10% under the agreed-upon contract price (especially when two other people made similar offers within THREE DAYS of listing) implies that maybe, just maybe, you're incompetent. And when three different agents send you comps suggesting that you adjust your appraisal, stamping your feet and sticking your fingers in your ears just makes you an even bigger fool.

      FML. I love the way these shirts look, feel, and are made. They're a very fitted cut, and the material is heavy, doesn't wrinkle, and is stretchy. It's like wearing a good polo shirt. This stink set in after about 4 months, though.



      Never seen this, will look for it today. I've read "use an enzyme cleaner", but nothing at the stores says "contains BO-destroying enzymes".
      Stupid question, but do you wear undershirts? I don't go anywhere without one, and none of my dress shirts have BO/pit stains.

      That's what I do. I rather throw out a $5 tee than spend another $40 on a dress shirt.

      I really have no where else to put this so i'm typing it here.

      in mid 2008 (17 at the time) i lost almost all of my friends over something stupid involving my girlfriend at the time. ex-friends pretty much tortured me psychologically through FB and Xbox live and the phone.

      a few months later in late 2008 (18 then) i was diagnosed with cancer. i turned to my ex-friends hoping to have there support, and that we could move on over the silly reason we lost touch. i only told those who were my closest friends at the time we lost touch, and they told everyone else. during the phone calls they really didnt have anything to say (one even asked if they should be worried if it was contagious ) , and i only heard from or saw one of them while i was sick. and the only reason i did was because he was dating my then GFs sister. so he was pretty much forced to. no one came to visit me, no one called, nothing. most of the BS they put me through like fake FB profiles stopped but some of the crap like anonymous xbox live messages continued. they even mocked me for having cancer in one of them.

      anyway mid 2009 i was finished with chemo and the doctor said the cancer was gone.

      that was a long time ago and i like to think that that time in my life is done with and i have moved on and no longer hear from or deal with those people. i like to think that i have gotten over it but sometimes it still hurts to know that the people i had been friends with for years, even someone who was my friend since 1st grade, could turn there back on me.

      but the reason why i am posting this is because today i learned in my cancer biology class that friendship (meaning have more than 1 friend) leads to an overall survivability from cancer by 4X. because i lost those friends at the time of diagnosis i only had my family and my GF for support. this just brought up some really old and not so good memories. it just makes me feel more abandoned even more and learning this really put me in a bad place today. i felt that maybe typing this out would help, which it did.

      that's my rant. i doubt anyone has similar experience and could give advice on the situation. sometimes i think about getting in touch with them and telling them off. but then i realize that they're not even worth the time or the energy. and just incase anyone was wondering, i have made plenty of friends since then and have been cancer free since april 2009

      Why? Either their parents pay for them, or they have a giant car payment and mooch off of their parents. As long as someone lives off of their parents, no matter how old they are, they are still children. Grownups earn what they have.

      Act like a grown up and you will see that you can still pull more ass in a hoopty than children in their parents' sponsored sedan.

      You get much crisper and straighter lines freehanding them, and it's really not that hard to do.

      Why? They took loans out and are now in debt on something that depreciates. They're stupid!

      19 year old I know says she's dating someone that's "rich" because he drives a WRX and bought a house. No, he's in debt up to his eyeballs and he can get loans because he has a decent paying job. That's not rich. I have no debts and own my own car and place. Does that make me "rich" I don't think so. dumb girls

      sjt1985 nailed it.

      Also, be consoled that those *******s were NOT friends. They were immature self-centered scum, and you are definitely better off without them in your life.

      Best of luck to you, staying cancer-free! IF you don't already have a pet, you'd do well to consider getting on. Check the beneficial effects of pet ownership when going through any life-threatening experience; you'll find that having one will give you an amazing edge in beating the threat!

      No you wouldn't. If your parents offered you a new 335i you'd be thrilled. It's okay to admit you'd like it if someone else bought you something nice. It's retarded to demand that they do or get upset if they don't, but it's allowed to be happy if they do.

      This. When I was 16 I drove a then brand new E39. When I got out of college, I went and bought my own. I only like my 540 more because it's faster.
