Showed up early for work (my first mistake) and had an email from my boss asking that I go purchase 5 $100 Google Play cards for a client. Seemed odd but, my boss has done stranger things. Responded and told him I'd head out as soon as our Walmart opened (my second mistake). While I was out buying the cards, my actual boss sent a voicemail to all employees stating his email had been hacked and that someone was sending out an email asking that Google Play cards be purchased for a client. When I got back and listened to the v/m, I turned around and went back to Walmart. Unfortunately, gift cards are non-refundable.

Once I realized I was victimized (can you be a victim when you're a dumbass? It's a rhetorical question. No need to respond.), I did engage my "boss" in email exchange wherein I told him I had the gift cards and would put them in his office mailbox. He responded asking that I scratch the back of the cards revealing the activation codes; take a picture of the backs and email it to him so that he could send it to the client as it was urgent. I said I thought it would make a better impression if the client came by the office and received them in person. What followed was about a 10 email back and forth wherein my "boss"became extremely agitated, leading to me telling him to go f#@% himself and quitting. Even with a fake boss, it felt pretty good. Not $500.00 good but good nonetheless.

So, I have 5 $100 Google Play gift cards that I have no use for and a bank account in dire need of a serious cash infusion. If anyone uses Google Play cards, I'll sell one or all of them for $90.00 a piece. Ship them to you via USPS Priority Mail.

Thanks.

Bemoaning his success as a “greedy” artist sounds like the whining of a petulant toddler.

I assumed the application was enough, but no. I was contacted later in the day, and while the zoom interview was fine, the follow up in person interview process is brutal. In the dead of night they pick you up in a black, windowless van. After driving for an hour, they open the door to an open field. They strip you down to your underwear, throw eggs at your naked body while asking obscure trivia questions about late nineties cartoons. Unfortunately I wasn’t deemed worthy enough to purchase. Maybe next time.

Is it the way that he runs scared?
Or that he's socially impaired?
Or that he only likes to steal Whalen?

Are you holding back your call outs
Even with his unmanly fall out?
Or the way he covers up his presence online?

He's just a bit of a drymounter upper
He's a little drymount
His isolation is confirmation
Of his desperation for a couple bucks

So, he's a bit of a drymounter upper
But we know what to do
The way to fix up this drymounter upper
Is to call out his bullshit, true!

We're not saying you can change him
'Cause people don't really change
We're only saying drymount that guy
Credibility isn't strange!

People make bad choices
If they're hooked on crank or meth
But throw a call-out their way (throw a call-out their way)
And they'll refund you all to death!

Everyone's a bit of a drymounter upper
That's what it's all about
Father! Sister! Brother!
We need each other
To raise us up and call us out

Everyone's a bit of a drymounter upper
But when push comes to shove
The only drymounter upper fixer that can fix a drymounter upper is a
Call, Call, Call, Call, Call, Call, Call
Call-out, Call-out, out, out, out, out, out
out, Call-out... (out!)
