That's about what I'd have to pay at the LFS. For like 10 cents more I can pick out the pieces (for the most part) lol. If the LFS gives me like 3 rocks I may just go online for it.

Hmm....You think that you would get payed alot since you are a dude (we can only hope) and work at a flower shop.....If your parents disapprove the rock, tell your dad to go work at the flower shop and see what it feels like, I wonder what his reaction would be.....

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH

right..

xD to clarify: I am a dude.
My dad helps and hates it.
Being employed in a family store means free labor.
I tell him I work there and I should get some money and he just says "you have a house and food, what more do you want?"

heh parents ^_^

I did get some money for working in the store all summer, so I have SOME to spend.. but I have to split it in half to save for a car. (third gen z28 hopefully! )
