have any holiday money left?

by WOODS-HICK / January 1, 2007 6:16 AM PST

year end bonus? mattress stuffing? do you want to live like a havelot on a wantmore's salary? $15k and a driver's license should drop you in the driver's seat of a $350k road rocket.

Just wondering....:-)

Where do these guys drive those "road rockets" to their limits? Or does the dues cover speeding tickets. Happy

Of course, some cars look like they are doing 110mph standing still.

Also wonder how auto insurance kicks in. Let's see, 12 guys are driving the same car over 12 months with the owner's permission. Do they each carry insurance to cover a totalled $350,000 car, or do they just write a check? Happy

Anyway, if it makes them happy, it's OK by me.

Hard to believe he succeeded at MS with his sense of math.

'Compared to just making payments on one car, I have the whole fleet,'

No, he has paid $30K for the use of a car just 30 days out of a whole year! He still has to get around the other 335 days in the year. That'll still cost him. Hard to be a hot shot riding the bus, isn't it?

I was thinking the same thing Cindi.

$1,000 a day rental for 30 days to drive a show-off vehicle and drink beer at the club house. For $365,000 (a years rental) he could buy a nice new Roll's, Vett, 911 Porche, and used Yugo. Happy

That's only $500 a day.

think of it as a self-pay king/queen for a day or 30

now if I can squeak this in, when I was young rogue, we would call this driving a "chick-magnet". taping a $1000 bill to the forehead was also recommended. add 'tres chic' attire and the perfect cologne. ok maybe I just read about those things, but we all have heard of outward expressions of a man's shortcomings.

I am sure the ladies here might have another endearing term describing the male version of the "c-m". I would love to her them

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
