Workaholics

Am I the only one or are there more workaholics out there who work long hours just to maintain the mortgage and car ....... and also how many of us appreciate driving our camaro even though we been at work all day the minute our buttocks touch that seat in the camaro everything just seems to be perfect and you forget all about the hectic day, maybe I just love my camaro too much lol any others ?

I average 50 hours a week at my job. I agree about getting in the car at the end of the day. If I've had a bad day I just get in the Camaro and go for a cruise to clear my head. The sound of the exhaust when I hit it is my therapy. Always brings a smile to my face.

Same boat! I can have the worst day ever at work and be up to my neck in work and then as soon as I punch out and get to my car, after having a smoke outside of her, I sit down and forget all about what just happened over the last ~9 hours!

Well....don't have a house but.....yes to the Camaro things...
Cherry's my "happy place" only thing I need to make me feel good when things suck.
Who needs to pay a therapist $200 bucks an hour when you can hop in a Camaro and just be happy?? LOL!!!

I'm the same too. I have a highly stressful job and work with a bunch of vampires(they suck the life right out of a person) but when I come around the corner and see Ruby I smile every time!

That you might be LOL -- I hate traffic -- I want to cruise and drive along without all the friggen artards going under the limit in front of me....hard to enjoy fresh air and happiness when you have the Oval-tards going 35 in a 50

(any by Oval tards I include those damned Subaru's and friggen a-hole men in Ford trucks!! -- ever notice how all the stupid slow cars all have logos with ovals?? Thanks God for our bow ties )

I live in the Bay Area and traffic can get bad at times here too. I'm just like you though. I just relax and enjoy the smiles, waves and thumbs up I get. I used to despise traffic but it doesn't bother me like it used to.

I enjoy that as well. Yesterday, I actually had what looked like a car packed full of high schoolers, trying to enjoy the last remaining free days they have all throw their sunglasses off and just stare at my car. PERMAGRIN! A kid in his dads truck eyeballed me for the good mile I was next to him. I like it, it's me time in a camaro!

Really?? I would say the opposite since I'm pushing 22,000....





I guess that's more fault of my long commute then my long hours
