Please stop dumping on my friends. (Especially the Canadian one. Come on!)
This is not the arrangement we agreed to.
Dump on me all you want, I can take it. But leave my friends alone, damnit. We agreed to this years ago! And now they and I are getting the ass end of the luck stick this year?
If this is gonna keep up, we need to renegotiate, or discuss your breach of contract.
Wishes he could throw a "2008 sucks, let's get drunk" party, and have everyone over.
