A contractor told me recently that I have failed to make good money because I failed to understand the principle--"most people want to be lied to". As an honest person I have never adopted a work ethic that serves these desires. Sorry for being such an honest jerk!
you make relationships sound like ****in buisness transactions, that's pretty twisted.
and i just ****ing love how you generalize and stereotype.
just because you're fifty-two years and have been married to a wonderful woman for twenty-odd years while being in love with another woman... blah blah blah...
i see no reason why this makes you
some sort of an expert on women.
cause i'll tell ya, the women in your life are pretty twisted themselves as far as i'm concerned.
