| Money Talk|| Bad Debt Expense Question - JoseVargasTX on 10/18/13 at 6:42 am|
I'm in a partnership/franchise and I take home 60% of net profit at the end of each month. My partner holds our line of credit and pays all of the bills through the parent company he founded.
We pay 1.5% to bad debt on the P&L each month--I've been open since February and have paid in $60,000.0...
| Money Talk|| 0% interest question - JoseVargasTX on 2/19/13 at 8:18 am|
I've let the wife talk me into some purchases and I hate having monthly payments hanging over me. We are very liquid, but when we buy larger items or do home improvement projects, we always finance using 0% interest--I'm looking at about $10,000 in debt, all at 0% interest.
All accounts are setu...
| O-T Lounge|| Not signing a non-compete in a sales job - JoseVargasTX on 1/27/13 at 4:42 pm|
Let's say you hired on, completed training and paperwork and company forgot to give you a non-compete to sign. A month later, boss forwards one to you and asks that you sign and return--you end up getting busy and forget about it and never sign and return the non-compete. Boss forgets it as well.
| Money Talk|| non-compete question* EDIT and bump - JoseVargasTX on 1/18/13 at 6:41 am|
I've been with my company for two years. I work from home in sales. They sent a non-compete to me through email in about my second month and asked me to sign it. I honestly forgot and never signed it.
I'm free and clear correct? Anything I should be concerned with if I leave current company?

| Food and Drink Board|| Stuffing a pork tenderloin - JoseVargasTX on 11/10/12 at 7:51 am|
Pot luck with friends this evening and I'm planning on stuffing a pork tenderloin--was thinking of cream cheese mixed with some chopped spinach, sausage, and a variety of white shredded cheeses. I'll fill the inside with this, tie it up and then cover the outside with a brown sugar, ground pecan, ga...

Rex, DA, and others--how can you really have the belief that Obama is good for our country? Have you studied history? Do you not see the damages that he is inflicting on our country? Do you see what an ass-clown Joe Biden is? Does it bother you that he is a LIAR? Are you concerned with the direction...

Ok guys, little brother's bachelor party is Sunday night before the national championship. Not looking for blow or hookers. Need ideas on a good restaurant walking distance from Harrah's (not a tourist trap) for dinner and drinks. Nothing too outrageously priced either. After dinner, we're hitting b...
| Tiger Rant|| Look rationally on the QB situation - JoseVargasTX on 9/28/11 at 8:40 pm|
Les Miles recruited Jefferson and he has been a part of many wins on this football team the last three years. In my opinion, he made the wins hard to watch, but he has been a part of this team. You have to understand the connection between Jefferson and the coaches and Jefferson and his teammates. T...
