saying you should work less because you don't need it as much? i do believe that's called communism.

Or maybe your boss has to cut everyone's hours and just felt like being a dick when you asked.

You should explain to her that because you have a Saab, you actually have less money as a result of owning that car. True from many aspects, from purchase, to maintenance

I also would wager that his Hyundai car is actually worth more if you both went to sell them today.... lol

^These. Though she'd probably then be like you should have just bought an old civic.

Also, is she really serious? If you want to be a dick right back just ask her if she busted her tail light trying to back out of the kitc- ehh. On second thought...
Never mind.

My hours got cut this week to.

Not due to the Saab but they just need to lower their payroll cost.

I feel lazy working less than 50 hours a week, and now I am under 40.

This is why I drive a Geo Metro and a GMC Sonoma to work.... I barely get paid enough as it is, and I too no longer get OT. 40 hours and that's it. "I remember a time when companies EXPECTED you to work OT otherwise they would let you go...."

Some of my coworkers will give me shit because of my expensive cars. These are people who buy brand new Chevy trucks and Toyota Camrys every other year. For some reason there is a perception that my 8 year old BMW is worth more than cars they paid well over $40k for.

Nobody gives me shit about my Saab though. Or my VW Rabbit.

Yeah, people are silly! My co-workers are shocked that I own FOUR Saabs. The funny thing is these four cars probably have a combined value of less than the cost of a new base Corolla.
