  • They're also expensive and unreasonably demanding ... like wanting you to feed them and stuff.

    Oh, I am raising free-range children if the condom ever breaks.  It will be a " go outside till the street lights come on" household. Well more like "till the crickets start chirping" but you get the idea.

  • Be sure to have a few extra to account for the ones that will go missing. That's called family planning.

    But I KNOW I am and I don't want any. You don't know what you are getting into.   They are harder than dogs even.

    I agree this may be a bad idea but everyone tells me I would be good at it and should have some.

    Well, you are old enough and smart enough to know what you are doing.  I had a dad that was gone all the time due to work.  He was irritable and tired a lot.  I don't think you want to do this.  Also, it helps to have a wife or partner to help with this.  

    BIG TIME.  What are you gonna do with them when you are working all those hours?  They need supervision.  I'm out of the house from 1:30 to about 11:00 every single day.  I cannot even own a dog or cat.  Too long to leave them alone for that long every day.  

    Buy some parakeets.  They are easier.

    I think you are working way too hard to make this happen.  Work smarter.

    A Man Needs a Maid

    My life is changing in so many ways
    I don't know who to trust anymore
    There's a shadow running through my days
    Like a beggar going from door to door

    I was thinking that maybe I'd get a maid
    Find a place nearby for her to stay
    Just someone to keep my house clean
    Fix my meals and go away

    A maid
    A man needs a maid
    A maid

    It's hard to make that change
    When life and love turns strange
    And old

    To give a love, you gotta live a love
    To live a love, you gotta be "part of"
    When will I see you again?

    A while ago somewhere I don't know when
    I was watching a movie with a friend
    I fell in love with the actress
    She was playing a part that I could understand

    A maid
    A man needs a maid
    A maid
    A man needs a maid

    When will I see you again?

    Skip the actual work go for being a foster pop.
    There are many advantages to Lease vs Own
    1) You can get a monthly check for them
    2) You can trade them in for a different color if they clash with your friends
    3) You can get a 14 year old right out-of the-box who can mow a lawn or shovel snow (that's a plus for me!)
    4) No Stretch marks cause ain't no one got time for that
