Buying Meat, The VA, Glengarry Glen Ross

Buying meat

Sometimes you have to know when you find a deal and when you might just be getting scammed. I’m staying with young Josh Krause for the summer, and we needed some meat for those protein gains.

Instead of going to the store every three days to replenish our depleted supply, we decided to spend a couple dollars and buy the meat in bulk. We shopped around a bit (read: went one new place and said fuck that let’s go to the usual joint).

Why did we say fuck that? Because there was no deal for buying more, it was just a flat rate. $12 per item, no matter how many items you bought. Forget that noise, I want a discount.

Instead, we got damn near 40 lbs of assorted meat for $100. Now we have a week’s worth of bratwursts, pork loin, bacon wrapped turkey, steak, ground beef, twice-baked potatoes, and whatever else was thrown in the mix.

Too bad those goobers couldn’t wrap it up right. Five packs of two, not two packs of five, ya jackwagons.

The VA

I can’t really complain about the VA hospital here, as I don’t have any complaints. In fact, it’s great that they pay me like two tanks of gas for every visit because I live far away, even though it only takes 1/3 a tank to get there and home.

Shout out to the VA.

Glengarry Glen Ross

Easily one of the most boring fucking movies ever. I can’t even tell you how it ends because it didn’t keep my attention.

However, it does have one of the best sales speeches ever recorded. Maybe even one of the best speeches of all time, besides Gunny Walgren’s “John Glenn” speech given to 1/6 Alpha Co.

A always, B be, C closing. Always be closing.

Coffee is for closers.


Everything I learned about sales I learned in that seven-minute video. Needless to say, I don’t do much as far as sales go.
