| O-T Lounge|| My next door neighbor just got a 20Kw natural gas generator installed - chuckie on 10/22/13 at 5:46 pm|
At his house. Does this seem like overkill on generator size?
I also notice that his electric meter is out. Like, as in, no electric meter at all.
Could this dumb MF'er have decided to run off of natural gas alone? Like 24/7.
Is there some reason that a new generator should be running all day?

If there is one thing I've learned in 35 years of working is you don't ever want to work with or for family or friends.
It's a good way to lose someone who you are close to.
Sometimes the reason people are good friends is why they can't work together.

Is it as easy as adding up what me and the wife made this year on our last W2's and then checking with one of the many websites?
Do you just add up all the taxes, Fica and all the other crap or just the income taxes?
Made a good bit more money this year than last which is good.
