So it all started when I got my new job in Seattle. I live like 40 minutes from my work but with the car pool lane it takes 20 minutes. There was a bum that hung out by my apartment everyday and I would see him trying to get hand outs in the morning when I headed to work. AND that's when it hit me, I will train this homeless guy to ride in my car to work so I can ride in the HOV lane and get to work faster.
Fast forward to now. I now have a bum/friend that rides in my car to work and I repay with change and coffee so that I can get to work faster. His name is Jamal and he's actually a pretty nice homeless guy.
I didn't feel bad about this until now because Jamal now drives me to work. I literally pay him in coffee and he drives me to work in the car pool lane #winning. So do I own a slave?
