41. Lovely. How nice that no one can fire you for who or what you are.
Edited on Thu Dec-18-08 07:01 PM by Harvey Korman
As you know, gay people don't need to work for a living because we're all on the big gay dole. In fact, we don't even use money! We just exchange chiffon. We also don't pay rent or need to obtain housing. Also, we have free health insurance and pay no taxes. It's all taken care of for us! I can see now why you thought your life takes priority over ours.

Have a nice day.
