Does anyone know the true original source of the above comment?
Many years ago in Mr. Culbertson's 10th grade english class, there was a student who sat a few seats behind me. I think his name was Chris (?) and he was one of those "head-banger" types who listened to bands like Pantera and Corrosion Of Conformity. One seemingly random day he told me that I should be called "two bucks fifty" (not fitty). I'm not sure what it meant or why he said it.
After spending some time in my garage today, I have a new "wish". Pushing aside wealth, fame, looks, and knowlege is a desire to have packing materials reduced. Items for purchase should not come in large boxes with excessive packing. I could live without all the foam and crumpled paper. If you break something when taking it home, well then, you should be more careful! Does this post have a personal slant?
