lol no i had one. oh yea i should've mentioned that shouldnt I...btw people this would leave me with about $5.00 in my pocket after i buy this $900.00 video card, so now what would you think. also i dont currently have a job. the previous job i had was way to hard for the minimum wage i was getting paid. when you lose 2 pant sizes in a month from sweating i see a problem there. we had no water or anything and when we complained he pretty much said too bad bring your own water. then when we took a day off he told us not to come back. the previous 2 weeks were 25+ degrees days, the majority were 30+
