Transcript:

Good morning everyone. This is the path to 1 million. This is going to be episode number one is zero three something. I’m calling, always thinking. And of course by now, fortunately the statute of limitations I guess can no longer hurt me. But for those of you that are watching and those of you that know, please do not tell Jen. So the other day I am writing out a check and as I’m writing out of the check and as most normal people do and the upper right hand corner and you know I’m writing the date. So I wrote on there, you know, eight 13, 2019 and I go on to write the amount down below for the check and all sudden I stop and I look at that date, eight 13, 2019 and it sunk into my head at that moment that it had been 30 years since I graduated high school, like many moons ago.

I was like, actually I’d taken it back like this year. It’s like our 30th anniversary. I dunno if we’re going to have a class reunion or not. Probably not. Cause we all seem to be connected and chatting, just find on Facebook. But who knows. Anyways, I started thinking back to high school and there was, you know, a lot of people I know of thought it’d be, it was like a really good student and I guess it’s all about the persona that you put on. But I started remembering about something a little bit, not a little bit, but it was rebellious. It was devious on my part that I did back in the day. And I just wanted to share that story with you. I know some of you out there, let your kids watch this video. So just to let you know that if you are a kid and you are watching this video don’t do what I do.

Stay in school, don’t do drugs. So with my public service announcement all the way, let me begin the story. So back in the day I worked at this restaurant and when I worked at this restaurant, there was another guy that worked there and I’m going to change the names of the guilty to protect them. So I will just call him Bob now. Bob worked at this restaurant as well and every single time that I worked with Bob. Bob always put me down every single time without fail and his comments were so derogatory, like every single time he, there was nothing ever nice that came out of his mouth and it just wasn’t that he had just a bad attitude on life. Oh, contraire Mon Frere. He just, for some reason, another felt like he could just completely dump on me all of the time. Every time that he and I had to work together, he would just dump on me, dump on me, dump on me like every single time and I could not understand it because I didn’t do anything to him.

Every time that I would see him, I’d be like, oh, hey Bob, how are you doing today? Anyways, he would just keep right on going. It was like it was nonstop and day after day, month after month, week after week finally boiled down in two years, one day I snapped. I was in a really good mood. I was having a good time. I was at work and he came in and he said something to me wrong and I was like, oh my God, I am going to, I am going to do something to this guy now just to let you know that in the high school, probably the worst kept secret. And if you’re promised not to tell anybody, I’ll share it with you. But the worst kept secret in high school was the fact that I love to tp people’s houses. That was my thing.

Toilet paper was my thing. I love to go out and TP somebody’s houses, but it wasn’t just anybody sauces. I just wouldn’t do it for fun. I, I had this like weird justice scale system in my head. So if somebody I felt was doing me wrong or doing one of my friend’s wrong we would make it a point to go out and tp their house. That was just something that I did and I was pretty public about it, which was kind of stupid on my part. But all I have to say is that sorry about that. I got a text message there. Anyways. so that was my thing. That was my shtick. So when Bob pissed me off to the point where I could barely breathe to the point where I was just so full of anger I just said to myself, you know, I’m going to trash this house.

I’m going to tps house, I’m going to trash this house, I’m going to trash this house so bad. Right? And the first thing I had to do, of course, was put together a team. And you know, I went out to a couple of people that I knew and I said, hey, I’m going to go out and I’m going to trash Bob’s house. Do you want to help me? And believe it or not, it’s everybody said yes. There was so many people out there that just did not like Bob. I don’t want to say they hated his guts, cause that might be a little bit strong. They all said that they did, but they didn’t. But it was just that, man, this is just this one day I was just, I don’t know what it was, just Bob just rubbed my nerves the wrong way, like really bad and so I’m going to trash this house really bad.

So now I’ve gotten all my team together. We went, we got all my God, we got so much toilet paper. We got it from everywhere that we could possibly think of. My buddy had a huge trunk in the back of his car. I swear to God there was enough toilet paper in that trunk to wipe the ass of every man, woman and child in the state of Michigan. There was so much in there. I had the neighbor kid and his sister helped me out. We were shredding newspaper by Hand for weeks. I would actually go and I would stake out the kid’s house out like on the weekends, try to figure out like patterns like, you know, is he coming home late or you know, what does this car look like or what his patterns were. I mean I was like really like detailed about it.

And after all of these years of watching the A-team, I kind of had this idea of how I was going to trash them. But the thing is that I knew when I went in there and I was going to trash it, his house, that he was going to come for me. I knew he would because like I said, this is the reputation that I had. So I have a buddy of mine who is a promise to himself to be like some kind of a like an artist. So I went to him and I said, hey, I need you to make a sign, right? Make me a sign. So he did, he made me a sign and I looked at it and it was this giant piece of poster board and it said you the second victim of the n t p f now, because I grew up in the 80s everything that you saw on ti wound up in the word force, right?

So every special missions, a show that was on TV or whatever it is, they always ended in four. So I called my group of Group of people knew TP force, right? So I had the sign, bought a couple of steaks for it, had the toilet paper, had a shredded paper. We were ready to go that night. We hit his house right. And of course we get to his house and there’s a light on and I’m like, oh my God, I never saw a light on before. So me and another guy on my crew, we golf, we go up to the window when we peak inside and it’s him. Bob is like wide awake in bed reading the Stephen King book,

Unlike great, we’re going to have to call the thing off. But then it occurred to me, he absolutely loves Stephen King Books and there’s no way he’s getting out of that book. So I gave everybody thumbs up and I said, let’s go. And we were there for hours. Holy Sweet Moses, smell the roses. We were there for hours and did toilet paper with just throwing an every single time that I threw a roll of toilet paper up into a tree and I could see these long strands floating in the, in the in the breeze, in the wind. It looked super eerie. It was almost like Halloween. We kept trashing. We’ve got that, we got the shredded newspaper out. We were throwing it all over his yard. By the time we were done, it looked like it had snowed in his yard. That’s amount of garbage that I put in there. And every single time it felt good. Holy Sweet Moses. So my crew and I pile in the car and we leave. But the last thing we do before I go is I take the sign out of the trunk that I had my friend made and I put it in the stake and I drove it into his front yard. So that way everybody that drove by could see the sign.

The next day I go to work knowing full well that this guy is going to be there. So I walk through the door and of course he’s right there and he is like, he is so pissed. His face is like beet red. And he obviously has been stewing on this and he beat red and he comes right up to me and he goes, oh, I want to talk to you. And I looked at him and I was like, don’t you frickin talk to me, you asshole. I walked away. So he’s not content with this. So he starts following me and I’m going downstairs in the locker room to change. And as he’s following me down the stairs in a locker room, I start the narrative and I say, last night somebody came over and they completely trashed my house and I am so pissed off. And he actually said the same thing.

He was like, “oh my God, somebody came and trashed my house too.” And I said, yeah, and I couldn’t believe it. And to make matters worse, they put the sign in my front yard that said I was the first victim of the NTPF whoever those guys are. And he looked at me and he goes, oh my God, they put a sign in my front yard, that said. I was the second victim of NTPF. And I said, well, if you ever find out who those guys were, you let me know cause I will burn their house to the ground. And he goes, oh, I will. And he walks off.

So I don’t know

If he here, if he ever caught that. I, this is the first time I’ve ever been told that story out loud in public, which slayers I’ve told it in close friends, but I don’t know if he ever caught onto that. You probably did. Probably suspected all these years. Who knows? I don’t care. I think the statute of limitations ran out. I don’t know how long ago. So I don’t think it can be convicted for it anyways. Like I said before, if you’ve got any kids that are watching this, don’t do what I do, stay in school, don’t do drugs. Definitely don’t use me as a role model.
