    "$50 if you lose your ticket." - 7:50
    I'll just buy $200 worth of food (aka 1 sandwich and some fries), and "lose" my ticket.

    "He's a little too nice, gotta get him to be a little bit meaner. Get that New York edge to em'" Yeah that's why people don't like the personalities from NYC most of the time.

    I hate when people are snobby about food. "Ew he's putting mayo on his sandwich." If the man wants mayo on his sandwich let him put mayo on his sandwich. If people want ketchup on their hot dog let them put ketchup on their hot dog.
