Why do people who smoke always toss a cig when there is 1/2 to 3/4 still left before getting in a car or building? I will wait I know how much those damn things cost.

My resume is only 5 months old. Only been here since early April. Yes, SKF and Kaydon make bearings. I'm not sure of the extent, and I'm not sure how it will pan out. What happens happens.

$6.00 a pack/ 20 cigarettes = $0.30 a cigarette. so they are throwing away about 10-20 cents for each partially smoked cig.

pack a day smoker is 20 cigarettes x 365 = 7300 cigarettes a year. Assuming that they throw 5 partials away per day for an average of 15 cents per cig, they are throwing $273.75 on the ground per year. I feel this is conservative for a pack a day smoker.

Why do they also think it is fine to toss them out the window in the first place?

Obama and his cronies in Congress now have us on the edge of war with Russia.

Leave it to Democrats to undo everything that ended the Cold War.

A lot of my alumni friends have done this already with the donation thing. I haven't been called yet or sent any letters because they won't even give me the damn degree

I am not giving one damn cent to that school. I'm just happy I left with 60k in student loans to some friends being well over 100k when they graduated.

If I give any money to Flint, it will be to my fraternity.
What fraterunity are you in?

My standard opening offer is 25-50% of asking price. I learned negotiation tactics by watching 'pawn stars'.

I kinda also believe its fucked up to lowball offer someone without even looking at it. I seem to get these people every time I sell a vehicle. Im all for haggling, but at least have the balls to do it in person and after you have looked the vehicle over.

Even when someone is asking too much for something I still don't just throw out an offer half of asking price I either explain/try to talk the item down or let them hang on to it until they figure it out on their own

I am not about to drive 3 hours just to 'look', if I make that commitment of time I am looking to buy. If the seller responds with 'that's kinda low, but I may come down some' then I know I won't be wasting my time.

Often, I just buy if the asking price seems reasonable. But lately, everyone seems to think their shit is made of gold, so I like to remind them that shit is shit.

I wont deny that a lot of people out there view their shit as gold and want top dollar for it, its all over CL. However if im interested enough to want to spend over a grand I will take the time to go look at it in person and talk to the seller face to face. Living up here, I have drove a lot in every direction(mostly downstate) just to go look and decide that its not for me or we couldn't come to a agreement on price. But whatever that's how the car game works. Sometimes you drive it home, sometimes you don't want it after you saw and drove it. A simple phone call and conversation is usually enough to figure out the seller is willing to haggle, and pictures should be a good idea of what kind of condition it is in. But I don't care, if someone low balls me without seeing it in person, like 30% or more less than what im asking, I will tell the person to piss off cause most of the time they cant even call you, its in a txt. pussies.
