here's another for you, in the category of 'was I being scammed? if so, how?'
I was pumping at a lonely gas station in north Texas, late at night, and a guy came up to me and offered to repair the hail damage on my car.
it was dark, my car was in the shadows, and anyway it had no signs of hail damage. it had hailed in the area, tornado season, fairly recently. so maybe he was just blind pushing his business to everyone. at a nowhere gas station? 11pm? without any flyers, cards, or evidence of business ownership?
I said, "my car doesn't have any hail damage." he said, "yes it does." I looked at my car. he looked at my car. finally I said, "I'm good thanks" and he walked away.
- I've often wondered what I would do if I needed some cash and didn't have a way to get it without asking a stranger.
offer an item of clothing, hopefully something like a watch that has some amount of value, but if not, go all in and try the shirt or shoes. no one is going to be comfortable accepting, but it'll go a long way toward founding your story in reality.
cheers. never heard a bad big thief song
as I recall, this has always been the trend. "smaller companies" were never going to break into the world of undersea cables. i vaguely recall talk about some sort of asian consortium (?) to alleviate this. or something like that.
earned income tax credit
which we already have
and it works
but if you're advocating for ubi and not for an expansion of the eitc, you are a confused human
