Just got done talking to my friend, who was also supposed to join BJJ with me in about a week or 2. It turns out as I was planning to use this years tax return to buy my Gi and start BJJ, my friend has to pay ol' Uncle Sam thousands.
Normally this wouldnt be a problem, but I dont drive.. he was also my ride.
I wish him the best as he has to go down to Texas (from PA) to join his dad in his trucking business until he makes the money to pay back the IRS. Who knows how long that will take.. maybe a month or two. But he did ensure me he hasnt lost any desire to join BJJ as soon as he pays his debt off.
