I love my job!!!

Postby Darrenmb [OP] » June 22nd 2012, 7:43pm

Today was one of those days that will live on in my mind forever!! I own my own business doing maintenance on estate homes! I see all kinds of things that make me drool and houses that make me dread going home to my measly 3 bedroom house!! Today however I was at a new house that i just picked up, I had to go into the garage to get salt pellets for the water softener, and sitting there in all its glory was a Mclaren F1!! i couldn't believe it!! i took pics with my phone and will try to upload, but if it doesn't work, don't worry, i plan on taking my real camera next week!!!
Oh it was parked next to a red car, could have been a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, wasn't sure, hardly noticed it!!!!

But at least you had the pleasure of driving a dependable A/S home that only cost $100 to tune up and not $5k :mrgreen:

The owner of the company (now bankrupt) I worked for had a twelve car garage full of exotic toys. He had money for exotic cars, airplanes, high maintenance women but no money to pay his subcontractors. I'll stick with the salt of the earth types. At one point in my life I would have been exited by something like that but now a super clean white van with immaculate maintenance puts a gleam in my eye.

Oh geeze, your just gettin old now ;)

I admit, something like that would be cool, but if you don't live close to the Autobahn, what's the point, really? If I had that kinda money I would be building up some old wreck muscle car like Chevymahar is doing and doing some highly custom builds of old American iron.
I saw a 66-67 Catalina the other day, not outrageous , but low, clean and mean with a nice sounding BBC under the hood, man that thing looked so nice it turened my head.

I guess I would not hold it against someone to own that kind of stuff. But when they won't pay their subcontractors... you know, the ones that made him rich in the first place...
