well for those of you who responded to the above thread you'll know the whole story..
Just wanted to update you guys and let you know I finally made my decision and chose the rich guy.. and not because he has all the money as I have mine but it just seemed like a logical thing to do..
The poor guy ended up having some flaws which weren't impressive such as the annoying brat of a daughter he has and totally dependent on me financially (like I pay for all the diners and lunches and his groceries and I borrowed him a loan which he says he'll pay back and I've giving him all the time he needs to do so etc) plus his sister is a nightmare too and I don't want to get involved so I ended it with him..
As for the rich guy, well life couldn't get better. We're now also business partners and we'll be celebrating our official union by taking a 14 day Caribbean cruise at the end of next month and of course I'm excited!!
Anyway I gotta get back to the samba party.. thought I'd stop by and let you guys all know..
When my wife, Pam, chose to dump the fellow who'd been with her for much of her three years as a homeless person and go with me in January 1997, I first shipped Pammie to a safe house (via bus)...then recovered the GMC Blazer her former guy had stolen while drunk from a mutual friend, also drunk...then put the fellow on a bus back to his native Arizona (we were in Nevada at the time).
When he got back, acquaintance after acquaintance asked him, "So...where's Pam?"
His stock reply: "She took off with some rich guy."
The point? Just this: Earnest, I'm still looking for my flashy rented Porsche!
That is bloody funny ghost! I have been around a bit of old and new money, and the rent a life crew in my hometown, it is funny as hell! The old money has it "all invested" and live like paupers, measuring to see if they can get down to one pint of milk a day so they can save another 10 million! They wouldn't buy a beer for you unless you kidnapped their kids! Meanwhile the new rich flaunt it in all the major high traffic parts of town. In the mean time the "rent a money look" mob are parading around the nightclubs in rented cars and suits! I love it here!
