    Sorry, saw a flick and whatnot last night and didn't get a chance to respond.

    Let's just say this.... the benefits package that I have is wortha few K shy of what you make on the ponies. I make just over 80K a year (my first year with the organization, so I'm on the bottom rung of the pay ladder for my position) and my wife makes just over 90K a year with a similar benefits package.

    We comfortably live in our own home, drive our own cars and entertain ourselves and our boys as often as possible. We also avoid having to boost smelling screaming children of strangers onto ponies and having to shovel shit and sweep up hay.

    So your 35K for "60-70" days work might buy you all of the Axe products and nachos you need, but it paints you into a very neat and limited corner. It's your right to enjoy it as much as you want; it's my right to chuckle and deride your lifestyle as much as I want. It might gain you whatever limited respect you have in the EQ2 circles (judging by the calvary that comes rushing in, you have your share of EQ2 "friends") but I'm going to go out on a limb and say I doubt it takes much to impress the likes of many of these people, despite what they say to the contrary.

    Anyway, keep defending your choice of lifestyle and having the rabble rally in your support. It keeps the entertainment value alive.

    So you have to work 192 hours just to gross 8k. That isn't even takehome. We can profit 8k in less than 20 hours of work in a weekend.

    Our Pumpkin Patch/Christmas Tree Lot also makes your yearly salary in profit in about 60 days. Yet, you think you're on a pedestal that allows for jeering at what we do for a living? Humorous I guess.

    Even combining your wife's salary with yours leaves you behind what we make working way less, in a way easier job (that retards could do ofc). Talk about something to brag about!

    So not only does my family make more than yours, we work a lot less, and have a lot more time off to spend together. I'm not sure about you, but that is certainly worth shoveling some horse shit and stacking some hay and putting up with ugly mismatched kids like yours.

    We also comfortably own (three) homes and (three) trucks, not to mention a semi and two live in horse trailers, and we entertain ourselves all the time. In fact right now Randy, my mom and my little brother are in Laughlin because they decided to take a holiday weekend off for once.

    We do all this while avoiding 40+ hour work weeks, dealing with shitty bosses and coworkers and all that bullshit.

    The only "neat and limited" corner I'm painted into is deciding whether or not I want to take over this business when Randy and my mom retire. They recently rezoned the area we live in to commercial and our property values have went way up so they're gonna sell in a few years and I have to decide whether to sit around on my ass and do nothing for the rest of my life or work a few days a week for more money than you make in a month.

    You make 30K or whatever it is in 60-70 days... you have more time to spend less money, if that's cool with you, then go for broke. You talk about money your family and staff make in a weekend - money which needs to be divided up between each of you. You have books to balance, shows to arrange, travel, etc, etc.... I make the money I do without having to balance any company books, without having to pack shit up, clean up pony crap, or deal with the fact that my work is not guaranteed.

    I realize you are presenting best case scenarios here, as well. You can put out the best numbers you want, fact is you make a paltry amount of money to spend in the same 365 days a year that I have. I don't work 24 days a month (I don;t know who does), I work 16-18 days a month (without holidays or vacation factored in), I have a benefits package that is second to none for my line of work, I have a pension that I'm paying into that is top of the line, etc, etc...

    I don't deal with shitty bosses - I enjoy their company and their opinion. Those "shitty" co-workers? I dunno where they are, because I deal with none. It's easy to throw out those kind of stupid characterizations, but they are not a factor I have to deal with. Screaming fat kids are a reality you have to deal with. Also, having been in my position fo rthe limited time that I have, I can expect a far better salary (along with other things) within the next couple of years.

    You can pretend all you want my friend, but considering you are where you are at 33 years old, you'll do sweet fuck all in the next 33 years.

    Remember, you keep using "we" to disguise a lot of what you are presenting here. Those numbers divided by "we" and with a littlemore reality factored in don't look nearly as good as you are making them out to be.

    The 30k is what my mom lets me keep out of the jobs I do with my pony crew. We have three pony crews total and also a petting zoo. They get money from the jobs I do above and beyond to 30k to 35k they let me keep per year. I also have tons of time off, because I choose too. I could work every single Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun and make tons of money but I'm lazy.

    Best case scenarios? No. I was just giving a recent example because it was fresh on my mind. My mom and Randy routinely bring home $5k or more per weekend. Our Pumpkin Patch/Christmas Tree Lot has been making that money going on 25 years. My mom and Randy almost exclusively do county/state fairs and those are always good money. We've been established so long that our year is normally almost totally booked by September of the previous year.

    While *I* personally may have paltry money compared to you, my family doesn't. You also have to factor in that everything I have is free, so I have 30k a year to spend on shit like nachos, videogames, clothes, televisions, and shit like that. Our family has more along the lines of 300+ thousand a year.

    The good thing about our business is people always want them. No matter how the budget is, how much people are cutting back and all of that shit, people always go out for the holidays and people always try to please their kids. Even in down years we make money hand over fist because while people are cutting back, they hardly ever refuse to take their kids out on the 4th of July and let them ride a pony.

    I'm 32, not 33. As for where I am, I don't see how you can continue to talk like its a bad place. I make half your yearly salary doing about 1/10th of the work. My family makes more than your family makes, working way less.

    Most of you motherfuckers are just jealous. I don't blame you.

    Whatever.

    The "we" is my mom and Randy, the primary owners and operators of our pony ride/petting zoo business that you love to make fun of.

    They easily clear 300k a year combined. That is also taking most of Jan ~ Mar off.

    Our labor costs are hardly anything, as you said retards could do this job.

    There isn't any dividing up to do really, except for the jobs they let me keep the money for, but as I already stated that is over and above what they already do in a year, because we have three seperate pony crews. Basically the jobs I do and the money I make are just icing on the cake.

    Again, they make more in two months than you make in a year. That is profit after labor and other costs that the two of them keep.

    So, you're a mooch? You can't provide enough for yourself that you need mom & Randy to provide the rest (the "freebies"). I like the whole "my family makes more than your family" comment.... like "my dad's bigger than your dad". I also like the fact that you cite a weekend vacation your mom, Randy and your little brother (not you) take as something that I should take note of...

    Seriously, dude. This isn't about your family. Its about you and the fact that you are a leech, you haven't been weened off of your mommy's teet. It's much more convenient for you to want to compare families, especially seeing as I have two sons, but it's nothing more than you trying to look good through the accomplishments of others. My accomplishments are my own. I have tonnes of time off as well... not on the order of magnitude you do, but I'm not a professional leech.

    I'm glad you're comfortable being a mooch. I'm glad that you're happy still needing your mom and Randy to get by. It's all very touching. You still get no credit from me, despite how badly you want it (referencing all of your posts and attempts at justification).

    As for best case scenarios, I still stand by the comment as you present 8K to begin with and then come back with 5K - 8K is better than 5K, just so you know.
