RE: Ranting corner
So been looking at businesses for sale.
People can a little deceptive if you ask me.
I'm looking at a petrol station for sale. They boast $1.95million in just petrol sales (per annum), but as someone who has worked in the gas industry and knows how to run a petrol station I know that the profit on petrol is so small. So I did a few calculations, and sure you may sell $1.95mill in petrol, but only $80,000 of that is actual profit. And then if the lease is $46k a year, and then it's 100% staff managed which will mean like at least 6 staff which at around 35K each a year is around $210K in staff.
So now the $720K in goods sales has to make a profit of $176K in order to break even. So the price you charge has to be marked up 25% just to break even.
Actually that sounds about right considering when I worked everything was marked up like 50%...

Hmm...

I wanna message the person listing this business now but wtf do I say?
Obviously there are a lot of questions that I would need to ask, firstly why the seller is selling, but other financial stuff as well, but also does this business owner do all the accounting or does he/she have an accountant.
I can't help but think the seriousness of my consideration will be lost once my current situation comes to air (21year old, hasn't even finished university yet, doesn't own a suit or any assets. Though the bank should be able to lend with the business being the security for the loan.).

Suppose I shouldn't mention then that it's a very nice day today without a single cloud in the sky then huh..

If it's any consolation, the left side of my jaw has been killing me for the last 4 days.

Tooth ache or sinus infection? That sucks, pain is the only thing I fear.

It's okay that your weather is nice, enjoy it.

I think it's my wisdom tooth, it doesn't look right in the mirror, looks like it's coming up into the back of my mouth.
Like literally into the gum bit at the back.

I hate it when websites or my internet bugs out, fuck up or generally refuse my entry to an area I could previously use, for no reason.... can't even check my own damn early posts....

You have obviously angered the gods. Make a sacrifice.
