  1. .. cause I was just outside having a smoke, and some drunken bum comes up to me and starts yelling at me. He's telling me I better not be panning, cause this is his turf!

    That way, you could find out which pays better: your current job or his.

    I get up in th morning, get dressed, go to work , put on pajamas (scrubs), I actually wear "clothes" for about 2 hours a day.

    I love my job.

    Get dressed? No way! I'm a songwriter.

    Of course, we're commonly mistaken for panhandlers, too...

    Yeah, that would be a good sign. Where do you work that allows you to show up looking like that?

  8. How you dress does give off a strong impression about yourself. For example, over the summer when I worked in DC, I wore a dress shirt, tie, decent pants etc every day. I felt like I got more respect in general. I was also able to buy cigarettes without being carded, which had never happened to me before. (I don't smoke, but was sometimes sent on errands to buy cigarettes for the executive, and in other circumstances would buy cigarettes for friends.) I wonder if I would have been carded if I walked into the gas station wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
  9. I don't think jeans and decent shirt qualify as "bum" atire, but maybe I didn't shave. Can't remember.

    I work at a radio station. Pretty casual enviro.

    And no I can't get your song played.

    That couldn't be any funnier.

    Who knew that panhandlers had turf?

    Nice. What do you do there?

  14. IT stuff/Live Broadcasts. Anything with a wire in it.

    Don't tell anybody that I come to TB at work.

    Hey this isn't a public forum is it?

    Very cool.

    In a slightly related topic, I typically have a bum chat with me on the same street corner on my way to work every morning while I'm waiting for the "Walk" signal. Apparently, he wears a tin foil hat because he was abducted by aliens (the aliens that apparently worked for Former President Reagan), and had a mind-control device implanted in his brain.

    Also, his coffee is the secret to eternal life. I'll just stick with the usual Starbucks Latte, if you don't mind.

    does that comment make me a terrible person or what?

  19. I guess while I'm waiting, I could use that extra time to maybe train him....:p

    I think I may go to hell for saying that....
