I just made the mistake of trying to be nice to the pizza delivery guy. I had to listen to him tell me how he and his wife are worth millions and when he's not delivering pizza's he's buys and sells antiques worth tens of thousands. He seemed serious but it was all I could do to keep from laughing.

But who knows? Maybe he's for real......nah!

He just wanted to keep your door open long enough to scope out your living room.

Expect a broken window and missing plasma screen by next weekend.

All he saw when he looked past me was my two cattle dogs. I doubt he'll be coming back to rob me. If he does maybe the dogs will leave enough of him for me to shoot.

I hate people who talk about money whether imagined or real.

People that brag about being millionaires are probably as likely to be millionaires as people who brag about being Navy SEALs are of being SEALs.

Possible, but not very likely.

If I had money I'd get a jorb and then do it really shitty so I got fired. Then when they called me into the office I could say 'screw you, I'm a millionaire!' and walk out.

Work to stay busy? Somehow I doubt that. That's why you worked hard to get rich. Play maybe. Work? NFW.

What kinda cattle dogs?



Don't get your hopes up, Mike. They're just dogs for herding cattle -- not half cow, half dog.

I was going to photoshop a "pizza delivery guy" for some humor.

But the deal is... If you Google images for "pizza delivery guy"

You don't get much that doesn't violate the COC. If you know what I mean

One chap who won the Irish national lottery had a job in the DPW changing light-bulbs in the various government offices.

He continued to work. He said he had to fill his day somehow, and he kindof enjoyed what he did: He got to meet a lot of people.

My parents are worth about 2 million. My mom still works as a nurse. My dad retired to concentrate on getting over lung cancer. But they live in a 40 year old house, have 2 cars, a explorer and some toyota. They also have about another 600k in equity on the house they are in. Some people just like to work to keep them busy.

I know a millionaire that lives in a small apartment and rides a bike during the summer months. He got the money when his dad passed and never uses any of it. He does handyman work.

If I ever came upon some serious cash like that, after I got kicked out o the Army i'm pretty sure I'd have to find gainful employment. I'd get bored pretty quick. of course I probably would open a small business rather than work for someone else, especially delivering pizzas. Rich people do tend to be eccentric though. Who knows?

I hope you tipped him well. That's the thing about the mentally ill. They are so unpredictable when they're angry.

When they have money, we call them eccentric.
When they have no money, we call them crazy.

I used to work at a pizza place as a driver before I was "promoted to management." Obviously my singualr experience can't speak for all pizza places, but the types of people that do that sort of work tend to have a lot of delusions.

Firstly, you need to understand all of these people are getting screwed. The amount of damage they do to their car exceeds the amount of money they are making through tips. Most of them know this. The way around it is to drive a real junker.

Secondly, most of them are driving illegally. All states now require insurance, and unfortunately most insurance policies now have exclusions for commercial delivery. You can get commercial policies, of course, but the cost is prohibitive. These people are effectively uninsured, and are playing with fate.

Other than this, the job tends to be hopelessly easy, as long of it is spent taking your good time in your own car. You generally can't be assigned any serious tasks because you're always leaving, so you spend most of your time that you're not driving slacking off.

Most pizza drivers have drug issues. Some of them do it just to get themselves through school (which seems often unsuccessful), but most of them aren't in school. Of those who aren't in school, most of them are "drift downs," people who come from nice families but due to drugs, adjustment problems, or mental illness just didn't make the cut. They are often very intelligent though, and at one point, they had a lot going for them. So, this is were all of the delusion comes from.

I've always been sympathetic to the poor. I am not sure what can be done as a society to eliminate these people; but they're probably easier to help than those who's great grandparents were slaves. Perhaps better access to mental healthcare. I dunno.

I wouldnt, lots of money = lots of guns= lots of ammo= HUGE amounts of time on my own personal shooting range I had built on my HUGE amount of land I bought with my millions. Every ARF member big and small would be welcome year round, white, black, red, blue and green, it would be Utopia.

There is a pizza dough maker here in Nashville that is worth 10 mil. None of it is in his name and he pays his wife alimoney off of his part time pizza gig.

If I had money I would fulfill a lifelong dream of starting a band and putting out a single album:

Greatest Misses: The Crap Nobody Liked

Seriously though, if I had lots of money I wouldn't waste my time working the job I am working now. I would continue to work, but only on a charitable basis, trying to help as many people as I could.

And I would also single-handedly increase firearms sales 10% nation wide as I went on a gun buying binge of pornographic proportions.

No shit, really?

What if the guy/gal came from a family with a butt load of money. About the same thing.
