I have no clue who these people are—it’s a stock image I found on the web

So before I embarked on a nearly three-week trip around Europe, my thirteen-year-old nephew from Georgia came to stay with me for three weeks. Now while a lot of teens would rather watch paint dry than to be with their aunties for nearly a month, my nephew was happy because I’m fun as fuck so he considered it an honor.

Don’t be going in there salivating and super-hyped over a sale because it makes you look like an amateur and what client continues to let an amateur handle even more of their money? I mean, if there was one thing I let carry over from that sub-prime mortgage, kill-the-economy world, it was that…lol.
