This guy we've known for awhile, hubby met him years ago - work related. He's contantly looking for, well I don't know what he's looking for. Attention maybe? We ran into him at the bar one Sunday afternoon and he's telling us about the kitchen addition he just put on his house. He made a point of telling us how "he got tired of waiting for a loan, so I just paid $65,000 cash out of my pocket". Made a point of repeating it twice. Then he stops over yesterday b/c he saw us outside and for some reason had to tell us that he paid $48,000 to the IRS last April 15th. Oh, and then how he wants to buy a house in St. Johns but the real estate broker laughed when he told them he was willing to pay $1 million cash. After he says something "impressive" he stops and looks at you (me) with this dumbass smile on his face.
Excuse me while I hurl. No one is impressed Kevin. ::)

This guy has 6 kids and his 2nd wife of 3 years lives in her own house. Weird, huh?

I don't know why I feel the need to tell you guys this, but it's been aching my arse all day. He's just, weird and creepy. :eek:

My first thought was if he can pay out of pocket $65,000 then why the hell would he have to "wait" on a loan. I would think they would be lining up to loan him money. ::)

Ok, so if he had $65k lying around, why was he waiting for loan approval? lol

We have a frined like this and he doesnt make CRAP for money. He even asked to move in with us when we first moved into our house. I cant stand him. We never hang out with him. HE JUST PISSES ME OFF.

I don't know if he's "broke", but I don't see how he can be as rich as he claims to be. He's does what my husband does, and 1/2 the time is out of work. He's also a fireman in the city, maybe he gets paid good for that? :-\ In anycase - I'm not impressed. We call him "Knobby" b/c his head looks like a doorknob. ;D

We had a neighbor like this once! I really believe that WHATEVER the subject (money, etc.) the following is usually true: the people who brag about having it, don't ... while the quiet people who you would never suspect, have lots. ;D

LOL I'm sorry for laughing, Amy, but the entire time I was reading this, I was picturing a guy who lives up by the camp. His name is Kevin, he does construction, hangs out in bars, and has at least 4 kids with his first wife that I can remember (maybe 5). Oh yeah, and he gives me the creeps! What are the chances that it's the same guy?

Don't you just want to say

"Kevin, sweetie - I'm really sorry about the size of your penis but trying to impress me with all this other stuff isn't going to make it any bigger"


I know, I'm mean - but that's always the 1st thing I think of when men are bragging.

OMG, Amy THAT'S HIM! I was laughing so hard that I didn't see this:
I don't know if he's "broke", but I don't see how he can be as rich as he claims to be. He's does what my husband does, and 1/2 the time is out of work. He's also a fireman in the city, maybe he gets paid good for that? In anycase - I'm not impressed. We call him "Knobby" b/c his head looks like a doorknob.
I, too, doubt he's as rich as he claims to be. I had no clue he was a fireman. Do you know where? Given his history, I'd be surprised if he's a paid one. I didn't know he remarried, either. He and his first wife lived apart for awhile, too. More like, when he was home, she stayed with friends. What bothered me about that was she was leaving the kids with him- the youngest was only about 3 or 4 at the time, I think. Anyway- He gives me the creeps. I avoid him at all costs.

I find that really annoying, too, Amy. As a matter of fact, I was talking about this just yesterday with my good friends Robert DeNiro and Colin Powell when I was showing them my new Ferrari Enzo.

P.S. How very creepy that you would both know the same guy!

City firemen in our area make about 70 k a year. I know quite a few who do construction work on their days off. If they can rake in another 35 to 40 K per year it wouldn't take much to accumulate some serious discretionary capital. Especially if they do a cash business. In 10 years time you could acquire half a million in fun money. Not bad for a doorknob.
