Bob: "Hey Tim, how's it going brah?! I just had a revelation. I realize I hate my life up to now and feel like I jumped into this marriage. I'm planning to divorce my wife and am gonna sell this stupid station wagon. Pretty badass huh?"
Tim: "Umm, Bob? You're 47 years old. You've been married for 24 years, have 3 kids and another on the way. And what does brah
mean? I think you're having a midlife crisis, you might want to rethink this. I mean you have a plastic hip and a pacemaker!"
Bob: "Nah you're crazy brah, I already asked that hot intern out and put a down payment on a Corvette
. Life is gonna be great. And let's keep that pacemaker thing on the downlow."
Tim: "But you'll have to pay child support, alimony, and still have your 'great life' to pay for."
Bob: "Timmy my friend, that's what credit cards are for."
Tim: "Whatever. Enjoy bankruptcy."
