Red face Hey OTC, I need some advice

im looking to buy some gum to improve my popularity at school. i wanna be that guy with the 'gum' so people know they can come to me and ask for gum at any time and I can give them one or two. double mint dave, they might call me

my question is, what gum do you think i should get? i need a flavor everyone will like and i'm looking at buying a very very large amount in bulk. idk like 5lb of them or something got $75 to work with

maybe something like big red? what kind of gum would you like knowing your reliable friend has on him? suggest me some gum ish

get a suitcase, stock up on different gums. sell each piece for 10 cents. take IOU's for people who dont have change at the moment. anyone that owes more than 1 dollar can no longer get borrowed gum and may be reported to the 3 credit bureaus of student loans. These credit scores track students borrowing power such as pencils, paper, lunch money, gum ect.

Never laugh at anything the OP posts, but this reminded me of my middle school days when gum was huge because it wasn't allowed in school. I would buy the six pack at walmart for $4 and sell each pack at school for $2 a pop, had a stack of like 20 packs of gum in my locker and would take 1 of each pack and put it in my trapper keeper. I'd sell it in the bathroom, and I vividly remember placing my trapper on the sink and using the reflection in the mirror to show kids what I had in store for the day


Even in my youngest days, I was hustling lmao. 300% profit, not bad

13 year old school boys weren't swarming you in he bathroom to buy gum, not quite sure why you would make this story up

Either way, fact or fiction, that's massive cringe worthy and now my face hurts

If you are planning on making it in the gum game, you're gonna need a couple henchman to ruff up the competition. The key is monopolization so you can charge what you want without any repercussions.

Actually a pretty funny thread..

I'd keep multiple flavours on hand, different strokes for different folks!
