You're a Listener and you don't get it... 

The easiest way to lose your job in radio is to buy something that smacks of permanence. Or, buying something that will take you years to pay off and you can't drive it or ship it anywhere.

We've seen it over and over again... jock buys something like a swimming pool or spa that seats 12 and a week later a new PD arrives and the jock is out on his ass with all the bills to pay after just buying that "special something" that he thought he was secure enough to buy.

Want to keep your job? Don't buy anything that you can't have shipped across the country... or possibly out of the country.
