    Just realized the Ford X-plan deal from my work is gone. The ownership group we got it through sold their piece of our company.

    Sometimes you can beat x plan with good negotiating. But it's more work.
    Stupid people focus on the math, smart people focus on the information.

    I suck at negotiations. Wasn't planning on buying until next year anyways, but still peeved.

    Just talk to Swak. It might mean a trip up to Edmonton, but I bet he'll still hook you up.

    The key is to wear something sexy that shows a lot of cleavage and shows off your butt.

    Pretty sure in car sales that’s actually a recipe to get a market price adjustment

    Well TD redeemed themselves with their call with me today. Brief initial hold of 10 minutes but they got me all sorted out in 15 once they got to me.

    I can live with that, especially after 4PM.
    I take back my redemption of TD for managing to fuck up insuring my car to an address they well know ( considering they also insure my home) is over a year out of date...

    When you complete a task for a manager at work, and email it to them with a clear and descriptive title, but they still send you wechat messages days later asking when you are going to get it done, because they didn't check their email.

    I used to send this one super handy individual exactly what was asked, when it was asked for. Then I needed to book 45min to simply read the email directly to him while he followed along constantly grilling me, looking for a mistake.
    I'm hoping he froze to death in Texas.

    lol, and chances are if you WeChat'd him that you e-mailed him a document proactively, he would be like "Yes, I saw it..." all passive-aggressive like

    My pet peeve - this must be a family court matter.

    Having sat through many days worth of crap at QB in calgary, this was a constant first question - "what exactly are you applying for here?"

    When Op Costs are already an unreasonable $20/sq-ft and at renewal, the commercial landlord offers you $10/sq-ft + Op Costs, which is basically BertStare.jpg so you immediately shop around. Weird - it turns out there's trillions of sq-ft of empty office space in Calgary and you immediately find something far more suitable for way way way less money, sign up and boom.
    Then, Johnny FuckStick magically has time to "make you an offer you can't refuse.... $2/sq-ft, Bro. Because I like your face."
    Then he's all le shock and awe when he finds out we're leaving and doing a burnout in the parking lot?!!!!? Like, are you honestly surprised that we didn't carry on in some song & dance, bullshit, bird mating ritual garbage when you were trying to soak us for 80% more than a reasonable rate?!!!?
    Go fuck your hat!

    How did these clown-ass, motherfuckers ever get enough money to own all this shit in the first place when they're dumber than a bag of warm puke?!

    I'd need to know more about this bag of puke to make a fair comparison.

    I had 15 different comparisons lined up but they all had to do with 47 chromosomes or Corky from Life Goes On...
    I was just trying to be PC.

    I haven't seem it mentioned yet, but the new 60km/hr zone on Crowchild over the river. Let's widen it to 3 lanes but slow everyone down to 60. Even southbound after the new bridge when it went up to 80, has been changed to 60.

    BTW - NO ONE DOES 60 THERE!!!

    I love how much money they spent on that interchange and you still have to go through that bizzare under bridge intersection to go crowchild north from Bow trail EB.

    I rarely go through there, but I wish I could maintain 60.

    People who have to tell you how much they hate wearing masks. Yeah, we all hate it. That's why we weren't doing it for fun before this all happened, and why we all take them off as soon as we're able to.
