No job too small for that kind of billing I would be digging holes with my fingers for how much an hour?

Nice gig Stuart I hope you end up being conserved by a person as compassionate as you. KARMA!

i'm in the wrong line of labor market i need to redirect myself where the easy sure money is billing approved with big opportunity to sort of double dip you know some errors on over billing so easy no haggling with clients to kick up the bucks no sireeee just write yourself a big check and submit my next case billing for approval but if i go this route i would have to break all the mirrors in my modest abode cause i could not look at myself in those mirrors in the same way although i could drape the broken mirros in something shiny like gold or silver to distract my inner conscience knowing my wards will be flat broke at this rate and the chump working class taxpayers will be supporting my thank you very much grand lifestyle if this is the new american way to hit the lotto its time for me and my pets to take a roadtrip to the end of our nation for an ocean trip to our new destination
