one of the features of russ being self-employed is
the opportunity for trade.
based on the situation, i am either in favor or against these trades.

for example:

eating for life at the melting pot? in favor.
15 seater "express" chevy van with only two seats and no windows? against.

muffin may have swayed my opinion forever when he brought this home:

the "human touch" massage chair. it's not the most aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture we've ever owned -- read: it's fugly-- but traders can't be choosers. and russ is only charging the neighbors $5.00/hour, so we've got that going for us. of course i am kidding, while russ is not.
