You could be a CEO and strip-mine companies. They steal TONS of
money, don't have to lift a finger to get it, and never seem to be
held accountable. Oh WAIT, you're an honorable person. I suppose

WorldCom owes my mom's company many thousands of dollars. She'll be
in deep [bankruptcy] shit if they don't pay up. I really don't like
it when people fuck with my mom.
