I passed this up before, but now I have to ask: Just exactly what is an "illegal gatorade service"???

x2, spill the beans on what service you provided.


Yeah, I'm a CPA, and my time is split pretty much 40/30/30 between tax/audit/consulting.

I'm just going to make a guess and say that he sold Gatorade in a school that did not "Allow" students to sell third party products.

IE: Allowed to sell candy if it was a fund raiser for a club/sports program.

Not Allowed to sell candy or food they brought from home.

If that's not the case, I'd love details also.

Seems to be a few musicians, too. Good to see. I play the piano. I'm blues-obsessed. I occassionally sing but that certainly doesn't mean I can. After a Whisky or 8 I tend to sing the Doors, which can be a great way to empty a Pub.

I've had illegal Gatorade, but I've never sold it. You just buy the Gatorade powder and use 1/10th the normal amount of water when you mix it.
