I don't get any lines in this one, but I'm posting this because of how funny Carmen("Whoa!") is. His last name is Pizzo, but Ken paged him as "Carmen Pizza" one night, and it took. This is his first job selling cars, and I think he's been with us for a little over a year. He's a natural at selling because he's likable. He also cares about enough doing a good job to do his paperwork properly. He learns from his mistakes, which is actually kind of rare in this business. With some of these guys its like everyday is their first day.

He will be a manager one day I'm sure.



The bald prick that walks through Jamie's scene (near the end. .. long Brown hair), oblivious to us shooting A FUCKING COMMERCIAL, is the guy that is constantly taking customers after we close, and keeping everyone there two or three hours past closing. we closed at 6 Saturday.... I got out at 8:45. He could give a rats ass about how you feel about him. but he is also very successful. he just needs a high five... in the face ...with a chair.

I spend more time with that asshole than I do with my kids. That's pretty fucked up, right there.

I want a Nissan Juke.
This is obviously because you have been subliminally advertising it to me just by working in a place with my name on it.

I'm going to be on a billboard. Group shot of was taken Tuesday morning. should look kind of like the group poses in the tv commercials... I'll be in the back peeking over the shorter folks.

I'll take a picture or maybe a video of a drive-by when it goes up. No idea how long that will take to get put up. I'm gonna get the picture on a T Shirt, though...ya know...if you guys want to buy a couple for your friends and family...(Christmas is right around the corner!!)...

The Royal Star still lives in the showroom at present. Wanna buy it? I'll get you a good deal.

I actually rode a Road Star yesterday.... every other bike I ride just seems to make me like mine more. fuck it. I'm keeping mine.

heheheheh... would you deliver it, personally? cause that would be cool.

but seriously, no thanks. I don't really have a spot in my life right now for that bike, though it is very pretty.

I'm delighted to hear you report you're getting repeated reinforcement of your choice about your bike, that's great man. be safe and have fun.

Quinn Faddler is the name of the mother fucker that broke into my Jeep last February. A detective called and said that they got a DNA match from the blood left on my driver's seat. I may be called to testify. Gladly.

Badass. They almost never catch the guys in low-level robberies like that. I hope he fries for it!

I probably won't actually testify in person. It cost me $200 for the window, and the bag he stole had nothing I've missed inside. ... I don't need some miscreant with a vendetta out there if he beats the wrap. .. or gets out in 6 months.

This where sharia law comes in helpful, they'd cut off his hands. Except then the taxpayers would have to foot the bill for prosthetic hands. That's why sharia law won't work here.

Of course, the "3 strikes-and-you're -a-lifer" works the same way.

I'd be suspicious that the detective is doing all this DNA -testing
and follow up just to close LJ's car -break-in case, when a 3rd
conviction can put the guy away forever.

Then the costs go on for a lifetime.
