Evers, Burbank, Taco Bell discussed on The Smoking Tire

The Smoking Tire


I was broke couldn't get unemployment anymore. I had definitely like tapped out my very generous parents, with, like, hey, can you help me? Can you help me? Can you help me? I was on food stamps, like I was on Medicaid. I was I was. I mean I was on welfare. I had no money no. But it was close. I thought, okay, well, I can always sell my car if I need, but I'm living in LA, like how the hell do you do that? Like that was just. It's a prospects were bleak and I had about one hundred bucks left in my left in my, my Bank account. And I just reached out to an old friend, and she was like, dude. She's like go just do some project management stuff like it's quick work. You can make like four or five hundred bucks a day. Like just go do it. It's he'll hate it. It's like we'll, we'll skew where your soul product project management didn't matter. So I went and got a job at Dana working at Deutsche. And I worked for five days on the Taco Bell account because they like someone was on vacation. I just kept things moving and so the second the second job that I got was this place called the enthusiasts network. And I'm like, what the fuck shoot. I had no idea what it was. I had to look it up. I looked at their website. I'm like, I still don't know what they do this, this was twenty fifteen. This is like now, we're, we're at now we're now almost. So this was the beginning of two thousand fifteen and I was like, oh, well, it looks like they have something to do with cars and surfing. So okay, whatever so I went in, and I'm like, I'm going to add. Person. Like I was I was production, like making ads and I'm like, I don't know what you guys want me to do, but I don't think I've done anything that, but, but they didn't care. They hired me and they actually hired me to work on the Infinity activation at this thing called the concord elegance, and I was like, what is the I don't know what that is? I looked it up. And I'm like, oh, that looks pretty so sure, I'll sure that sounds great pebble on someone else's Doug. One is pebble on someone else's diamond. It was, you know, I worked for even like like cars when you were a kid or anything. Yes, I loved cars when I was a kid. My dad had to Porsche speedsters when I was growing up. He had a square back. He had a vintage Mercedes for fifty s l he had a lot of really beautiful cars. I was not allowed to touch any of them. I will say though he might. So my, my older brother was tasked with driving me, and my date to my ninth grade dance the sort of in the in the Mercedes, except he just had his permit, he didn't have his dry. Evers license. He was fifteen. I was fought fourteen. He ran a red light. He ran up. He ran a stop. Sign in Burbank. Burbank. Cops you don't do that with Burbank. Cops so they pulled him over wouldn't let him drive us. And I went to my ninth grade dance in a cop car, and they asked me, they're like you want lights and sirens. And I was like, no, like, are you kidding me? I wish I had. Mistakes. But yes. Yes, irons. And can you kind of skit it in there, but. Hampering..
