We dont all live in beverly hills.. and unlike some of you handme down companies from your daddy.. We work in Casinos.. for example me! Where i gotta take shyt from dumbazz old people that cough in my face or stink when they come up and ask me a question... or dumb people who cant insert there players card into a damn slot machine and make me walk all the way over there and stick your card in for ya, while the lady next to him is smoking and puffing smoke in my face.. So i work hard for my damn money..

Think about it.. the piece of shyt place probobly costs maybe at the most 25$ and paints what? nother $30 .. okay so thats $55 right there.. So okay you want to lmake a profit.. okay.. so add another $20 .. $75 should be the price for a wing shipped.. and you still made $20 .. So GTFO ...

Relax - Vendors Charge market prices.

Different vendors have different suppliers and mark-ups, if you don't like the price that you are quoted and can find it cheaper someplace else buy it from the cheaper vendor.

If you think these price gaps are big, try pricing out CPAP equipment from a DME store vs. an online supplier. The last one I bought online was 20% of the price my local supplier wanted.

You honestly don't sound like you have any real idea of the costs and overheard associated with running a business, or parts cost for that matter.

Mostly, it sounds like you're too cheap to afford nice stuff and would prefer if everyone else cater to your limited budget.

The original post here just makes me sick. I doubt that it is a joke. What it is however is a SAD comment on our educational system and the attitude of many of our young people. Learn to speak and write correctly and take responsibility for yourself. Don't expect someone else to take care of you. If you do not like your position in life, CHANGE IT. Get and education and find a better job. In this country today if you are "disadvantaged" you can go to school and do anything you want to do at little or no cost. All you need to do is apply yourself to the task. However, I am sure that it is a lot easier just to complain while holding out your hand for someone else to fill it. I am sorry for the rant, but sometimes this attitude just gets to a "dumbazz" old fart who spent most of his youth serving his country. Sometimes I just wonder why I, and many others, did that if this is our future.

This thread brings up the old debate: Capitalism vs. Socialism. Sounds like the OP prefers the latter.

cafpaf, thank you for your service. :usflag:

I am sorry, but there is no single word in this post, worth to comment.
I feel very sorry for you and I would like to know what kind of medication you are addicted to???
I am German, but with this kind of language, I would stay away from public boards.

Agreed, this is one of more ridiculous threads I have seen. And I have seen some dousies. Feb 11 join date; OP is obviously a troll.
