OMG, AUUGGGH!

Okay, James - Please explain how you plan to do this? - uh, and yes, spending $8000 would be crazy for a 1991 Plymout Acclaim, and I really just don't get it.

This is an entry made by James on another thread this week - Dragonmaster.

You are going to make $6.00 an hour?

shrugs) the cost of living here is REALY low.

I'm getting a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim. It came with a 4 or 6cylinder, but it will hold a small v8 (he he he) In two more paydays I'll have what I need to pay cash for one with a 6 (about$5,000) and by the time the trans blowes I'll have enuf money to get it overhaled. I'd rather have an older car with a new trans, engine, and paint (under $3,000) then have a new car that you have to hook up to a super PC to change the battery.

I know spending $8,000 on a 14 year old car is a bit wacky, but its what I want.

WTF? You were doing so good seeming all normal and everything and you blew it with this comment

i dont know much about cars, but i would know right away if it was a 4 banger or a V6...and it will hold a small V8? again i dont know much about cars but that doesnt sound right to me...and i highly doubt you have enough money saved up to have 5k with thenext 2 paychecks

good god that whole post is just messed up, i hate you

RE: OMG, AUUGGGH!

ops, I'm going to have to stop typing when I'm that tired, makes no....anyway.

I'm now at $6 (well was, just quit) I'm going to $6.50. With overtime (shorthanded, so I'm realy doing 60-70 hours a week) and the same at BK (girl at $5.50 is making $400 a week with overtime(71 hours)). Me make double time when we go over 40 hours. So lets see.

$6.50 x 40 = $260.
$6.50 x 70 = $455.
$6.50 / 2 = $3.25
$6.50 + $3.25 = $9.75
70 - 40 = 30
$6.50 x 40 = $260.00
$9.75 x 30 = $292.50
$260.00 + $292.50 = $552.50
$552.50 x .22 (tax for me) = 114.95
$552.50 - 114.95 = $437.55

$437.55 will be my WEEKLY take.

$1750.20 a month
$21000 a year, at a Burger King, not taking into account raises, the fact that nobody stayes more than six months and in four you can get managment if you play your cards right. Only $200 a month rent, under $100 a month in food. Everything else covered. The rest can be put back. In a few short years of hard work I'll be able to get a car, house, and get out of this hick place, all at once. Possably even show Beth that I can make it easy for her and her kid. (ok, bad motivation, but hey, if it gets the job done)

Ok, basicly with that last one I don't see the point in paying for a 20,000 car I don't like. I cant even see the hood on my Neon. It's bull**** (so was the V8 thing, sorry)
Good gas milage (well, not so good after the CPU upgrades thanks to Jegs) You can get a cheap older car and fix it up to run better than a new one, and skip all the expencive computer **** that a car dosent need. I don't want my batery or fuses to be controled by the CPU. There are some cars now that the stearing isn't even conected to the weels, it goes through a computer first and that computer tells the car what to do. WTF? Ok, I'm ranting so I'll stop. Computers are good for stuf like fuel ingection and stuff though, I just don't like the idea that I cant do basic stuf like jump my car withought having to call the dealer.

RE: OMG, AUUGGGH!

Yes, I do realise I didn't edit that. Sorry. I pressed the enter button before I was done.

I also realise that $21,000 a year isn't much, but if you cost of living is under $400 a month, all is good. I'll get a better job when one comes up.

RE: OMG, AUUGGGH!

to work 70 hrs you would have to work 10 hrs every single day....and for 60 its 8 1/2 hrs every day......

but you will not get that, not at a burger king, not any fast food place unless your manager

you will get 40 at most but most likely like 35

so 6.50 x 35 = 227 a week - taxes = i dont know waht youu claim...probly "exempt"...so 200 a week

a BK is usually open about 18 hrs...so there is no reason for them to have you working 8 to ten hrs every single day


you will see, you think your gonna get what you said but you will see....you woulda probly done better at starbucks

RE: OMG, AUUGGGH!

First off adam, just cool off a bit and get that blood presure down. ok, you good now?

I do the 5am to 3pm shift now at starbucks, normaly get there at 4:30am and leave at 4pm by the time the next shift gets in and ready. So I'm doing 11 hours a day now, for five days a week. Thats 55 hours now. Like I said BK is realy shorthanded right now, I've got 10 days in a row coming up (only three people on nights, for the whole week) and I'm getting the night off only cause of a dentist apointment. I can get as many hours as I want. Even if only for a few weeks. Also, we arent a regular Bk, were licenced by HMShost, you know, the Fiad's. No labor laws are going to touch them. (found that out when I played the recording of my starbucks boss)

There are two people now working the 8 to 8 shift. I can do that easy. The managers only do 8 hours, they don't get paid overtime so they don't stay.

I'd only be exempt from taxes if I was still in school, I'm done with trying to be a chef for now.


"you will see, you think your gonna get what you said but you will see"

lol

RE: OMG, AUUGGGH!

Boy, you are nuts. You have to get it through your head that everyone else is not as stupid as you are and won't believe your crap.

You aren't going to get double time over 40 hours. From what you said, the burger king is run by the same people running starbucks. So why is it that they pay no overtime at starbucks but double time at burger king. I'll tell you why. Because it is bull****.

You math is as bad as your spelling. $552.50 x .22 is 121.55. That is $430.95. That averages $1867.45 a month and $22,409.40 a year. For basically 2 jobs, that is pathetic.

You probably eat closer to $100 a day in food.

You will never leave that hick place. You will never have a good job. Beth will never think of you as more than a friend. You have no chance with her. Give it up. You are a schmuck.

You can not buy an old car and fix it up to run better than a new one. You get excited changing a tire. You do not have the ability to fix anything in a car and you can't afford a mechanic.

There is no such thing as fuel ingection.

You are a moron.

Nobody is exempt from labor laws. If you believe that you are an idiot.

School has nothing to do with taxes. You are a moron.

You are like one of those idiot savant people, without the savant part of course.
