    Do you have a link to Share this podcast on Facebook, you should cause it was hysterically funny. I was the caller who pitched the question to Ray about Rays happiness vs Adams happiness. I was delighted when Adam hit my ball into a home run with his story about the maid & his undershirt. I’m laughing in the background the whole time as I visualized Adam with his glasses on looking seriously at photos of himself trying to see if he had the maroon undershirt on earlier that day & thinking to himself – I’m surrounded by retarded goblins. SOOO funny!!! Anyway, I had funny follow- up questions & comments, but I didn’t want to interrupt the good pod. Get a facebook link – write that down.

    Ray, seriously. There’s not a better time to buy a house than now. Mortgage rates are freakin miniscule. Just find a house you like in a halfway decent neighborhood and make an offer. Once you sign the note and the house is yours you WILL be motivated to do the necessary work to fix the house up and you will also figure out how to make the payments, because YOU HAVE TO. Enough of this nonsense, you are almost 50, get your ass in your own home and stop fucking around.

    Love ya Ray, but this intervention is necessary.

      There are things called credit score and down payment. He probably has terrible or no credit and his income taxes are not showing enough to satisfy banks.

      I would guess they need to get Ray enough money to purchase the house with cash.

    The dollar cost average of the electricity thats wasted due to having people leave the lights on (during renovation only) is most certainly to be less than the lack of loyalty, distain, and ill will felt towards Adam by the people that he is complaining to about the lights. Which ultimately will cost Adam more money in the long run due to sloppy work, frustration, do-over jobs,etc.

    full tard Gary should invite Adam to itemize the electricity that was wasted and take it out of Gary’s paycheck……….because that sounds like a reasonable idea.

    or just fuck off about the turning the lights off already. A half hour of light bulb costs 3 cents.
