“Everybody get a new car, buying a new house. And I’m saying that my heart is, like, real big this year, too,” one person said outside of a gas station.

“Couple of million dollars here and there. Then after they go back to the missus, give her some as a single, spend it and give me an 18-wheeler full of Corona,” one person said outside of a gas station.
