I mean its clear to me that, for the most part, most of us work for a living and have priorities that go beyond our rigs.

but I kinda get a little buggered when I see so many replies like, "get a job?"

Idk. kinda condescending to me. I mean, im not trying to be captain america or savior of all that is polite or anything, but "get a job?" is a real childish and ultimately a retarded response to a someone who is just posting up for conversations sake.

whatever. Im tired. I apologize.
When someone complains about money, they're either not making enough or not managing it well enough. Rather than call you incompetent, it was implied that the opportunities for career advancement aren't available and perhaps doubling down on the workload would soothe your woes.

Or would it sound better if jeepguy83 said it?

Have you considered a used top or a replace-a-top? What are you looking for? Any particular color? Style? Tinted windows or does it even matter in a soft top?

Get another job.
A week has 168 hours.

Since most take a one hour lunch break out of a 9 hour work day (8 hours working) you're actually working about 45 hours a week.

Now take away 56 hours that you're sleeping (8 hours a night) and the 45 hours you're at work and you're down to 67 hours of free time.

Normal people take 2 days off during their work week to unwind and relieve the mental and physical stresses associated with working, so that means you subtract 32 hours for your weekend and you wind up with 35 hours of open time.

Now take away the 10 hours on average most Americans spend in their cars driving to and from work, around town for errands, etc. and you wind up with 25 hours of open time.

Most people take a 1 hour nap in the afternoon after work which leaves you with 20 hours of open time during the week. Then you have to consider taking time to eat breakfast and dinner each day during the week as a part of a healthy diet, which can take about half an hour for each on average, so 1 hour every day for eating and you suddenly find yourself with only 15 hours to juggle with.

You could find a part time, minimum wage $8/hr job but that would yield you an additional $120 before taxes, but since everything is all ****ed up right now, realistically it's about $6.78 an hour in pocket which works itself out to about $100 in pocket.

Now you have to take into consideration that you actually have to drive to and from said part time side job, which might be an average of about half hour both ways because your stupid *** has to rush over there right in the middle of rush hour which leaves you only a measly 10 hours a week to work a part time job.

10 hours x $6.78 in pocket = $67.80.

All that extra work just to make an additional $68, part of which will be spend on the additional fuel you have to use so realistically, you won't be going home with much extra. Not worth it.

Only just some logical reasoning

Nap? What the heck is a "nap"?
And you left out eating breakfast and dinner, using the bathroom, shopping, getting lucky, and feeding the dog.

He got breakfast and dinner. Not the other important stuff though.

When I was younger I worked 3 jobs at a time and it was brutal. I was framing about 50 hours a week (6:30am-5:00pm). Two evenings a week I would head over to my buddy's shop from about 6-9pm and help keep the place organized and maintained, and then I worked a 36 hour shift (Saturday 5pm until Monday morning 5am) as a paramedic. I had money but after a year of that I was mentally and physically spent. I quit two of the three and just worked a few extra hours when I could.

Its possible but everything else in your life suffers.

Cheers

Wow. That's a lot of letters and numbers to justify laziness. One can do anything if properly motivated. Eight hours of sleep per night is a joke. One can function perfectly fine on five hours of sleep and proper exercise. I've seen the laziest fatbodies receive proper motivation to get up at 0400 every day and be on their feet until 1000 just for the measly pay given.

There are people who get things done and people who make excuses. Who would you want to hire if you owned a business?

Amen.
Me and you have discussed our work habbits before. One of the reasons I respect you as a person.
