“Dear victimizer’s of the less fortunate,
Here’s a little tip that may help your Karma out in the future. When you tell a person they have till Monday to get everything important out, usually you actually wait till Monday. Ho do you punk #@%*’s sleep at night? Oh and by the way, I like how the only shoe’s missing are my slip on size 11 red wind romeo work boot’s. I’d bet anything next time I see your little bank of theive’s, one of the underling’s will be wearing them. You know, work trucks have been just randomly bursting into flame’s recently? Better be careful, those thing’s happen all of the time usually to people that take advantage of those less fortunate than themselve’s. Just some friendly advise there pal. Well, Im sure you have a busy day of #%&*@%# disadvantaged people I the %$#, so I’ll keep it short. SLEEP TIGHT FRIEND!! Your’s truly, Your Worst Nightmare.”
