Re: Project ABP

It's a "high end" department store. By its nature it needs volume to survive. So what is it designed to do? Be an aspirational higher end for people who see themselves as above shopping at the mall / Target type stuff. Catch people who are transitioning into upper middle class, extract rents via marketing. They've got some higher end and better stuff but it generally is easily lost amongst the other stuff. And frankly, the better stuff tends to be in the non-streetwear section where N1 is never shopping. Suiting, m2m, etc. They've started recently trying to deal with micro-shops and drop-based streetwear with partnerships, but it's roughly 0% of their business.

So yeah, you almost get it. It's basically a shop for people who self identify as "high value," many of whom are not. It also used to be a place that prided itself on service as a differentiator. That has mostly faded away.

Re: Project ABP

Good thing ABP is the real deal and knows the difference between being high value and pretending to be high value.

High value: not dressing like a Project ABP

Fake high value: like 99% of the idiots at this store.

Left that place hours ago. Place is a joke and an insult to people like me.

See you.

Its what happens when ur busy. U dont have time to fiddle around with your phone.



Now 175lbs. My last work out i could have gone forever on paused DL but i got a blister on my right hand. It proves the big heart i have. I wrapped a paper towel and continue to pull. Most of these idiots in here would have called it a day and went home. Pathetic. Oh wait... THEY DONT EVEN DL.

2 more hrs at my job and going home. Gym at 8pm.

See you soon guys.

Re: Project ABP

Your application with the One has been approved. He has brought up your name multiple times the last few weeks. I am thinking April or May, for a full week. But we monitoring the coronavirus, we going into casinos with Chinese infestations and many travelers from China. Hopefully summer kills off the Corona.

Unfortunately he is not referring to you as ABP, you are stuck with

Spoiler:


It took me 4 years to get my own bro in with the One. With you its going to take a little over a year. He loves honest ABP who follows directions.

ha! got em.

man. forgot most of BASIC STRATEGY. i will review again. also, reading soft hands when the dealer deals is like arguing with a customer on non-sense BS like 'oh can i have it with 3 pumps of vanilla and almond milk' AFTER THEY PLACED THEIR ORDER. tilts me hard. soft hands is just like that.

ye. not traveling right now. not being racist but the Chinese are very bad at hygiene. CALL ME A RACIST ALL YOU WANT, I AM ASIAN AND WE EAT RATS. do i care? no. its why this virus is killing innocent people. AND THEY HAVE THE AUDACITY TO LET PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY, R U SERIOUS??? scanning their body tempereature with some BS MONITOR AT THE AIRPORT??? LOL. THIS VIRUS DOESN'T SHOW UP UNTIL 14 DAYS AFTER.

sometimes i support Trump bc of stuff like this. he has good points. THEY ARE POISONING OUR COUNTRY AND PEOPLE ARE DYING.

loco, do you need me to look a bit more Asian? my hair is grey, but it has faded and its back to being bleached. Supreme is making their 2nd drop of the year this Thursday. I have my eyes on some track jacket and pants, that will REALLY MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A FOB ASIAN. ASIAN LOVE SUPREME. i can wear this at the tables and they will not take me seriously. i love it. CrAzY As1an in Supreme in a casino. doesn't get better than that.

home now. taking my daily nap and getting rdy for W4D1.

see you soon, guys.

its what happens when you on your grind. like 95% of these idiots in the gym haven't even DL. sad really.

today i saw girl that has been training with this same guy for more than over a year. NOTHING HAS CHANGED. she look like she gained an extra 15lbs or so. its sad really. these gyms hiring trainers that look like they dont even facking lift. all i see them do is flirt and talk to the client. its why she hasn't lost any weight or put on any sort of muscle. its pathetic. i can't believe she's paying this guy. ITS BEEN OVER A YEAR. i know her bc she's blonde and has huge tits that you cannot forget.

anyways im getting stronger and finally back to where i was. i lost so many gains due to that flu last month. ridiculous. took me over a month to get it back.

see you soon, got stuff to take care of.

Re: Project ABP

I'm sure this has been suggested before but wouldn't you much prefer a job like personal training or are you just Starbucks 4 life? If you cut out your daily nap you could probably make it happen pretty quickly.
