  • This is what you get for helping someone out

I had the stock exhaust pipe from my ’96 GSXR laying around in the garage.  I got rid of the bike in December, but the new owner didn’t want the stock pipe (it had a full D&D pipe on it).  I had put it up for sale a few times for $100 with no luck, and I wasn’t really trying that hard to sell it, so I put it up on CL today for free to someone who needed it and couldn’t afford to buy one.  A guy came by and picked it up this afternoon, feeding me some bullshit story about how it was his roommates birthday and he needed this pipe for his bike and it was going to be great to help him out.  I felt good about saving someone a few bucks, and got the thing out of my garage.  Fast forward a few hours, and this shows up on Craigslist motorcycle section:

GSXR exhaust

I sent him a quick email:

seriously man?  I give you this pipe for free today and you paint it and put it up for sale?  I could have sold it but I hooked you up to help out…and this is what you get when you help people out.

karma’s a bitch.

What  a dick.

This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
