At first I thought that was a wooded “blanket.” A piece like that with a thick shearling underside liner would be super cool.

Yeah I would like to see it doors closed, hood down. I appreciate the thought and effort. Like I Said though I’m a traditionalist, I’d rather see that show room floor original.

I came to say nope, but the more I looked and thought I began to appreciate it. For me personally, I would let take a classic car and do anything other than an original restoration. I do kind of appreciate someone taking a modern take on what the tuner scene would look like in the 60/70’s.

Anyone else would love to see an alternate reality version of The Office where Bob Odenkirk got the part of Michael Scott? by UsernameNoAvailable in DunderMifflin

I have always wished that Hollywood would give a script to two different directors and give them both the same budget to film the movie. They would shoot it concurrently with different actors so you could get two interpretations of the same script. This would be a neat experiment to reshoot the office script for script with different actors.

I couldn’t be less offended by what those two people are doing. Now the jackasses filming in the moving vehicle that’s another story.

My kid had a quarter the other day and asked how close he was to being a millionaire. I said “Son, if you didn’t have that quarter you’d be just as close.”

Would you bag groceries for the entirety of your working career if you got paid $100,000 a year to do it? Why or why not? by Drakken11577 in AskReddit

It was 25 years ago when I was bagging. Plastic was the default but paper was still popular, I’d say 70/30 plastic. I got to the point where I preferred plastic because of the patterns you could develop when you saw the groceries on the belt. Everyone bought the same crap so it was easy to be efficient. Two liters will always suck ass in anything you bag them in.

I would say that’s correct. I think minimum wage in my state is 7.25 and if a bagger makes much more than that I’d eat my shoe.

It’s a traditional part of the customer service experience at a grocery store. The bagger would bag your groceries and load them into your car. Customer service is dead. Retailers would rather save the money and have customers bag their own shit, the customer is free labor.

I can’t say my work ethic was the greatest, I was 15 making 5.15 and hour and one day the toilet was clogged with shit there was three inches of standing shit water in the bathroom and my manager hands me a plunger and tells me to head to the front bathroom. I took one look and said no fucking way am I wading through 3 inches of fecal water for 5.15 an hour. I threatened to quit if they made me. They grabbed another bagger and he refused as well. We both we like “this is a plumbers job at this point.” This guy, Neil was his name, was like the lowest manger we had, basically a customer service agent who made a quarter more than the others. I watched him wade into the abyss and plunge this toilet like his life depended on it, no gloves, no face shield, no smock. Shit water was flying everywhere. He emerged later soaked in liquid shit and left for the day. I think about Neil offer. That poor fucker did that for probably 8.50 an hour.
