    I sell Lexus and before that I sold Toyota's for 3 years. I love what I do. Lexus is nice and has a lot of perks. I get free massage's anytime I want at work, nicer office, get fed great, go to Pittsburgh sporting event's for free, ect ect. I do miss the Toyota cliental though... A lot more down to earth. I work less at Lexus and make the same money so overall going to Lexus has been a great move for me.

    Yes, a good amount of the things you see on the commercials are real habits that some of the anchors might have before a show. Sometimes its random stuff for commercials like when we had Snoop Dogg and Coach Mike Ditka for a Monday Night Football commercial or the Muppets on campus for a commercial shoot.

    And I dont watch a lot of ESPN either... actually zero lol. I see it all day at work. Dont want to go home and watch it there also. :)

    I still see shit no one should ever see, pull burnt bodies out of cars, respond to your friends sweet nicely built long travel silverado in the desert...only to see it's not so sweet anymore and upside down and the only dude wearing a seatbelt it hanging inside unresponsive...dies, and your other friend is paralyzed from the waist down..and sucks to think that your buddy/neighbor might go to prison for manslaughter...whew, it's been a stressful and busy week.
