Okay so this is a repost because my old account got deleted when I was trying to log back in.
This makes me laugh just because of the shorts mostly. It was HOT outside so I was wearing a tank top and Daisy Duke shorts as I walked into the local hobby shop. I was also wearing my earbuds because I'm pretty antisocial.
I was down one of the aisles when a couple of women approached me. They asked me where an item was and I said, "oh I'm not sure, sorry." And they asked "don't you work here?" Not in a Karen way, but in a "you seem to know your stuff" way. And I said no that I just like the store. Then I said this "if I worked here I'm pretty sure I'd be fired for wearing thes shorts to work" and we were all sharing a laugh right as the manager (who knows me as a regular) walked by and heard what I said. He started laughing and responded "we love your business but you are absolutely right about that"
They apologized but I get it, sometimes it happens. What matters is how the parties involved react/respond. Sorry this wasn't a crazy Karen story but I still think it's funny even now after a year and a half

Very little information from this wave of news.
SOS recently filed their US GAAP audited earnings report for the fiscal year 2020. There, you will see they increased YOY revenue by 333% to $50.3 million and increased net profit by 193% over fiscal year 2019.
The first thing you need to understand is the fact that SOS wasn’t acquired by China Rapid Finance ($XRF) until almost exactly 1 year ago today. Please read about that acquisition in my previous post: A Little History on China Rapid Finance (and why it's okay to pivot into crypto)
That means the revenue numbers above only reflect ONE HALF of 2020. In fact, about 90% of $XRF/$SOS’s 2020 revenues were generated in the 2nd half of 2020 alone. Imagine what SOS’s fiscal year 2020 numbers would have looked like with a full year of operation.
Even then, SOS in 2020 was a fraction of the company they are today. That’s because of the recent business expansions and partnerships SOS has gained over the past year. The vast majority of these developments have occurred in the past 5 months and were not reflected in their 2020 revenues.
On August 19, 2020, SOS acquired their insurance brokerage qualifications in China. In doing so, they now have the ability to acquire a share of the insurance market in Inner Mongolia. This insurance market of Inner Mongolia has a total estimated insurance premium fee valuation of about $4.34 billion (2019 estimation, likely higher now in 2021). Assuming SOS is able to acquire just half of 1% of this insurance market, it would increase revenue by about $21.7M in its first full year of operation in 2021.
It’s important to note that this license is acceptable in the autonomous region of Inner Mongolia only. SOS is still currently pursuing an acquisition of a national insurance brokerage agency. When they do, the size of the insurance market they are able to work in will massively increase.

I want to stress that because this is 4chan, nothing here should be taken remotely as confirmed fact. They do love their fake “leaks.” Another leaker has posted about the possibility of Daisy Johnson appearing in Secret Invasion played by another actress. If true, this version of the character will be pretty different from Chole’s in terms of personality and history.
>So with regards to the casting of Secret Invasion, Marvel is casting for a young woman of Chinese ethnicity, aged 20-25, to play the role of Daisy Johnson aka Quake.
>One leaker stated that “recast” is technically inaccurate as this is a new version of the character for the MCU, separate from the Agents of SHEILD universe.
>Like the comics, despite being young, you get the idea she has been at this “for a while,” compared to the relatively older Chole Bennet version. For reference, the comics note she already had Level 10 clearance at age 17.
>The role is minor. Saying she is like Hawkeye in Thor 1 or Maria Hill is inaccurate, as this is a show so she will have multiple scenes. I’ve been told to think it closer to Jimmy Woo in WandaVision, a character meant to drive the plot while opening the door to more appearances.
>To go off that statement, leakers believe her appearance will set up Agents of Atlas in some form similar to Woo in WV, but that’s just speculation.
>The point is this is a new Daisy Johnson played by a new actress for a new interpretation of the character.
Being 4chan, this is probably made up, but it sounds realistic enough:
>I can reveal that Quake will be in Secret Invasion, however this will not be Chole Bennet.
>This makes it implicit that the Agents of SHIELD is not connected to the MCU franchise.
>Marvel Studios is looking for a young Chinese-American woman, aged 20-25, to play the role of Daisy Johnson in Secret Invasion. The role will be more similar to Hawkeye in Thor 1 or Maria Hill in Avengers, a secondary command character who answers to Fury.
>I have no other information at this time, just this specific casting.
>It would be inaccurate to call this a “re-cast.” It’s only a re-cast in the same way Andrew Garfield was for Spider-Man or Christian Bale was for Batman, it’s a new version of that character for that world.
