    Oh good Lord, the list is soooo long, where do I start?  Since it's my post, I'll go first...

    When the Cambodians you've been cleaning for, for over three years, still try to get you to work "on the cheap", even tho, they don't bat an eyelash at spendin' boo-koo dinero on anything else they want...A 2500 Sq. Ft. house, and she actually thought I'd do it for $50!!!  I stuck to my guns, and got $75.  Was there over 8 hours, and toasted my back. 
    Go ahead and say it....

    Gotta make a livin'...
    YOU call THIS livin'??? 

    So, I spent the first $15, on a rather large bottle of Chi-Chi's Black Russians (in a bottle).  WORKS FOR ME...!!!

    Tweek                             TAG...You're IT! 

    ***8:15-only half the bottle down, and am I.  Loves Ya'll!  Rock the night...

    When the captain in your unit recalls everyone back to work on a friday night to yell at them for not showing up to a mandatory formation that he didnt tell anyone about. (Actually happened yesterday)

    When it's five o'clock. (somewhere)

    Getting serious, I used to earn my bread money doing photo restorations. Every job was different and I would 'estimate' prior to beginning. If they agreed on my 'minumum' then I began. It was rare but when someone would try to haggle me down I would then raise my estimate. If that didn't stop them then I would tell them to take it to walmart. My labor, skill, and talent have worth. If they do not want to pay what I think it is worth and insult me buy attempting to low-ball I don't need their hassles and frustrations.

    This is one of my many pet peeves that easily could have gone in the forum.

    Yeah well it did and it does happen when your kid gets in with the wrong crowd,
    its so important now a days to get them started on the rite foot,and keep after them
    always to do the rite thing, unfortunately for me her mother was the bad seed,and
    never gave my daughter a positive role model to look up to,she left when my daughter
    was 3 yrs old,n we didnt see her for about 2-3 years cept at Xmas n only if she was sober.
    Count your blessings in life,and never assume anything!!!

    #1 - Tweek, my bold lass, the next time start out by asking for a C note, or better yet $125 & let them beat you down.
    #2 - These posts make me feel pretty fortunate - Dumb Luck - Hard Work - The Grace of God - I do'no

    Louis, my friend, how do I explain the "Cambodian" experience? These people are my friends. Which is probably one of the reasons they thought I could be "had" cheap. At the risk of losing their friendship, I had to very firmly explain that cleaning is what "I" do for a living, and I flat out asked them, what "they" thought I was worth? When an answer to that question, wasn't forthcoming, I then told them my price, and that it was non-negotiable. Could have I insisted upon more? Probably. But I know "them" well enough to know, not to press it, too far.
    For while they don't mind spending money for what they really want. They can also change their mind, in a heart-beat. And I DO, need to earn a living....
    Ok, talkin' about this, and a few other lovely things goin' on in the saga of Tweek, means...
    It's when....again. lmao

    You get off work.
    Yep, good enough for me.

    Especially after the work day I just had.

    My favorite line to use on people in my line of work is "You can always take it to Harley Davidson and let them work on it..."
