I don't entertain any customer that has an opinion on how long it should take or what I should charge.

I looked at how many people I invoiced last year... 8 people. I envy the people who really like other people. I want to but lose interest quickly and then start to get annoyed.
my sister suffers/has an extreme anxiety issue/disorder.

she was right there when mom was dying but other than maybe a food order was wrong or whatever....

i tried asking her about anxiety .....

she said walking out the front door, shopping....etc.....

i said holy chit you know about my world....

her answer was....yea, i'd be dead, on purpose...
i have no idea how you can do what you do......

No problem doing it. Just seems odd to see me breath while coping.

That's just insane. I pay barely over that in total payments for the whole year. I couldn't imagine having to work harder, just to cover those sized taxes.

When the capless gas tank overfills by itself and gas dribbles down the side of your brand new truck. It's happened both times I've filled up, and at different stations. No overpumping on my part either.

One of my GMC's - 2004 or 2006, cant remember - would do that with the standard fill cap.

Didn't matter what station I went to - on occasion, it would spit out big spouts of fuel.

These instances occurred by just letting the pump shut off by themselves..
