$$$ "The holidays suck. i never thought that i'd ever say that but this is the first time in my life as an adult that i don't have a girlfriend to share in the experience with and it sucks. bad. 3 weeks ago i came home from a night out for steaks and cigars with some of the guys from my office to find that she had cleaned out her drawer in my custom made oak dresser and left a note on my viking stove that simply said "i'm done." i've been texting her like 10 times a day but i haven't heard from her since.
What sucks even more about it is that i just got word from my boss at GS this morning about how much my bonus is going to be this year. wanna guess?
772k.
And you'd think i'd be happy, right? WRONG!" [BL: It goes on, and gets better, if that's possible] [craigslist]
