I got a bad burrito once. It sucked.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

I was checking out Zippo lighters, cause my best friend committed suicide a few years ago and I had an old Dead Zippo lighter he once had and like a dumb ass I am, I was playing slots in Tunica, Mississippi and I have a bad habit of placing my cigs and my lighter beside the machine. Well, I was drunk and walked away, by the time I came back, a few minutes later, they were all gone! I was told later, and it made me smile, that my friend's spirit was pissed and he probably took the lighter back.
Anyway, I saw a similiar one on shakedown, and the guy wanted $100 for it. I said what the fuck?! I know you gotta make money and such, but don't screw the crowd. I politely told him to shove it up his ass. I think it was Timothy Leary bringing out the best in me.

I once paid 4 dollars for a grilled cheese - after eating it I realized i had over paid by a dollar. I know people need to flip a buck, but come on man that was soo uncool. A 4 dollar grilled cheese would have garlic powder and a nice thick slice of tomato on some good bread. If i got a pickle spear and a choice of a soda or a bag of chips, yeah that would've been cool for 4 bucks....shakedown can be a trap sometimes..LoL total rip off

How about cutting a peice of cardboard down to a normal size and cut little notches into it where you slip the braclet in to display them ???

If you are buying somthing that you ingest for any reason. I would only buy it if I could either see it made or I know the people that i am buying it from (clean, kind and respectful people). That why they call them family...............If their not family,buyer beware......
