Here is some info on gas use. A car that sits idle is very bad......

- Idling your vehicle for more than just 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting your engine.

- Idling your vehicle for just 10 minutes can use as much fuel as it takes to travel 5 miles.

- Idling your vehicle for 10 minutes a day uses more than 27 gallons of fuel a year.

A lot of info in the link

I make close to 80,000$ a year. Yea I spend most my time at my job, but I also have whatever I want when I want. Trust me them calling me stupid for not being grammatically correct at all times, doesn't bother me a bit. I start school in the fall to better my life even more, while working 60 hours a week still. I know for a fact they're chumps haha

the guy saying he makes 80k a year working overtime. That would mean he's making something like 30 bucks an hour. Do steelworkers make 30 an hour?

Steel is a metal
Steal is an act of taking something not yours

You do realize that if what you are saying is true you worked just enough hours to put yourself in a higher tax bracket and actually cost yourself thousands right?

That is not necessarily correct. It depends on what kind of deductions he/she has and also what kind of pre-tax withholdings the employer offers.

And fyi...I work w/quite a few people who are in sales and earn incomes well into the six figure range, yet they can't spell or compose a respectable piece of correspondence on their own. They don't really need to though because they have assistants that handle that for them. So, you can't necessarily judge someone's success by their writing ability. It took me a long time to figure that out but it's the honest truth.

Thank you. Ill admit I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to some stuff, but when it comes to anything mechanical or working in the industrial field,I know more than these guys, and probably still make more money. Yea they may have more of a life than me, but I'm tryin to retire at 50 haha

Dude don't take people on here so serious. Most will mess with ya but yes there are complete assholes. Just a little advice. Back off the hours. Your 23, live some before you are to old. Besides, by the time you hit 50 Social Security will no longer exist. lol. Also I retired in my 30's. Set you goals hi if you are going to keep up the hours.:)
