CHEESE2009 is on a distinguished road
Default

Today I had it with a client... I'm on a street packed with cars, and there is nowhere to park myself - unless I block a driveway.

Anyway, my client decides he needs me to move my truck so he can go out, so I move.

I'm waiting for him to leave so I can park again. Anyway, after waiting about five minutes he comes back outside and I shouted at him and waved my arms around, "MOVEEEEEEEEE MOVEEEEEE MOVEEEEEEEEEE, LETS GO!!!".

This is the street where I have several in a row, that I deal with that shady real-estate agent faggot.

Speaking of this real estate agent, he's trying to rip me off. I'm adding numbers together now that don't add up, and if they don't add up after I calculate them a second time (to what I'm owed), I'm dropping all three of these clients TODAY.

Every time I go there, I want to tell all of them to 'f-off'. The street is misery man.
