I’m a debt collector.
I get calls from people who want to buy something and don’t want to go through the hassle of buying it from me.
They can’t afford to buy from me and I get all these little complaints.
I have a little business called “Gentlemen’s Club.”
It’s a place where you can buy the cheapest clothes in the world.
And I got one of these shirts that’s a rainbow, and it was one of the best deals I’ve ever gotten.
And then I had this call from a guy who had been looking for a rainbow dog suit and he was trying to sell it to me.
And he said, “I’m going to have a party with my dog and it’s going to be my birthday party.
I want you to get me this dog suit.
He wants $1 million, and I want to pay you back in five years.”
I’m like, “What?
What the hell are you talking about?”
And he was like, I know you’re a debt-collector, and you’re trying to make money off of my debt, and this is how I’m going pay you.
“I was like — and I was the only person in the room, but it’s the only thing that got through.
I didn’t even want to look at it, and so I just put it away, because I don’t have time to do anything with it.
I said, I’ll just put this in the garbage.
And so that was it.
I think the first time I tried to get someone to take my money, they would tell me, “It’s not worth it.”
They would say, “You’re not going to do it, it’s not going the right way.”
But they would never say, I have to have that person sign a document saying they can’t take your money.”
I just didn’t know how to handle that.
So when I had the opportunity to talk to some people who had heard about the Rainbow Dog suit, they were very receptive.
They were like, that was a really interesting story, and that was the first one that really caught my attention.
I don’t know if I could have done that.
I’ve learned that if I’m having a conversation with someone and they’re trying very hard to convince me to give them money, then I just have to say, Okay, well, I don-it’s not for you.
I’m not giving you my money.
And it was really frustrating to be on the receiving end of that.
But it was interesting.
I think it’s something I’m just going to keep doing, and hopefully people will be willing to follow along.
I would just tell people, don’t take my stuff.
Don’t ever do it.
And so I think that was really a wake-up call for me.
Because I realized that it’s very easy to be really focused on the negative and then you end up with some really bad things.
I was a little bit upset about that.
And in a way I’m glad I didn to.
Because, I guess, it might have made me a better person.
It might have given me a different perspective on life.
Because at the end of the day, the only one who really cares about you is you.
And the only reason why you are alive is because you are living in this life.
And you’re living with it, which is the only way you are going to know how much of it you really care about.
