Seriously. I'm a fucking ass right now, and I know I'm being a fucking ass. But I can't stop myself.

I'm involved in the family business. Not to get into details, but we're basically located inside the stores of a much larger corporation. Kind of like the McDonald's you see in Wal-Marts. Our little family business generates a few million a year, with several hundred thousand a year in profits.

Good stuff, right? I'm set to inherit it all, and have been doing a pretty good job of running the day-to-day shit.

Except my fucking old man managed to piss off our corporate partners. Yeah, they were being asses, but they were being asses the way you expect corporations to be. The old man misjudged just how much crap the corporation was willing to put up with, and now the entire thing has 6-12 months before it's all fucking gone.

We've got relatively little in terms of assets, because we're located on their premises. Because of the way the old man handled things, we've got shit in terms of being able to fight it. We're basically fucked.

I KNOW I shouldn't be this fucking depressed about this shit. I know it. Fuck, I've got a nice house and I can either sell it and move somewhere where I'm happier (I hate the fucking town I'm in) and get a regular job, or sell my house and start up (with some help from my folks, because they've got plenty to retire on) my own little business. Maybe one of those Play N Trade stores they're hawking on XM all the fucking time.

But FUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!! I was THAT FUCKING CLOSE!!!! A guaranteed 6-figure income for the rest of my fucking life, working 4-5 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. And it's all fucking pissed away now.

I KNOW I should be on the "look, I've got all this shit, and I'm a fuckload better off than most people", but all I can really think about is losing that sweet fucking set-up and scouting out bridges to jump off of.

Ok, folks, tell me I'm a fucking douchebag for not being happy with what I've got.

I feel you, man. It's just that, you know, this business was MINE. It was MINE, dammit! When my folks retired, which would have been in another year or two, it was M-I-N-E.

Fuck.

Ok, how does a generally law-abiding guy get into the meth production business? Online resources are telling me I can turn $200 production cost per ounce into $1200 street value. Figure I find some bikers or tweakers willing to buy wholesale at ~$800/ounce, we can all make happy-happy money.

You are better off than most people, at least you acknowledge it. But you have every right to be upset about what's happening, unexpected changes like that always suck. I guess just keep looking at the bright side... and that is: You're not completely fucked.

Do the corporate guys just hate your dad, or the entire business?

Why not talk to the suits, tell them you're starting your own gig without your father and you'd like to do business with them.

They've already lined up people to replace us. They're looking for a more corporate structure, rather than our mom and pop set-up. But I'm telling my lawyer to give it a shot, just for shits and giggles.

How long was your family's business in operation? Was it always an amicable relationship? Seems you'd have a good chance if this was the first time something like this happened, and if it was solely based on the issues caused by your dad.

How about going, hat in hand, to the corporate fucks and tell them you're apologizing for your hard-nosed old man, and when you're running the show things will be different? There's a way to say it that will show them you still respect him (he did build up the business, after all) but you clearly understand he went too far. Go to your dad and tell him he's ruined your life-long dream of taking over the business and he's got to make it right by signing it over to you right now. Tell him you'll keep him on with some big fat important-sounding title (but nicely).

C'mon, let's keep you rich.

Way back when, my dad offered the family business to me... all I had to do was be his indentured servant for twenty years, and then he'd hand me over the keys to the kingdom. This was no small offer... the business is worth megabucks.

I skee-daddled.

I mean, I love the guy, but I left fucking skid marks getting away from that shit. Twenty years of institutional food distribution with my dad as my boss? NO THANK YOU.

Best decision I ever made... my younger brother stepped into the trap, and now he prays for death on a daily basis... "Only ten more years to go!" he says with a fake smile which quickly fades to a pitiful look of utter despair, and then he says, "With any luck, I'll be dead in five."

Poor bastard... he realizes that my father will NEVER walk away. Because he knows my brother will do exactly what I would have done the day after my dad handed over the deed and the keys.... sell out the entire business, cash in, and walk away. My father knows this, and he will never let it happen.

Tommy: The point is, how do you know the Guarantee Fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy, but we're not buying it. Next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser and your daughter's knocked up, I seen it a hundred times.

Ted: But why do they put a guarantee on the box then?

Tommy: Because they know all they solda ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is. Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for right now, for your sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality item from me.

More like Dinner and some hanky panky. He's a recovering alcoholic. His son is now a freshman at Northeastern and at my Grandmother's Birthday Lunch, he said that he wanted me to come over tomorrow. He said that his wife was coming to be out of the house.

I'd go but I dunno what to wear.
