Brians goes straight to his car payment (which we need to chang...

I woke Brian up twice in one week to check the house for burglerers at 3 and 4 am he was not pleased. So jokingly in an email he told me we are buying a secuirty system and I said a dog would be cheaper (by the way I think I am wro...
