I learn something new everyday...

Re: Things I Hate


When you're old like me and your brain is nearly full learning something new can be dangerous. One day I'm going to learn something trivial and it's going to push out something important, like knowing how to turn left or something like that

When I think I can stay up late because I don't have to take my wife to work at 5:30 in the morning. Then she gets called in for 5:30 in the morning.

See those 5 drawers on the left on the second row up? Some designer thought it would be brilliant to put 9" deep drawer boxes in. That's fine, but the shelf above it is 13" deep so even with full extension drawer glides, you can only access 3 1/8" of the drawer box (drawer front is 7/8").

The HO was like WTF? So I spent the next day putting 14" glides into a 9" cabinet

I don't think that I'll ever forget enough to be that sheepish.

Upload the app "Mr number" and "white pages"

I'm getting lots of calls too. Usually from out of town. But with those two free apps. They will tell you a name and location as well as "suspected spam" and several people will have already labeled them thru the app. And then you don't waste your time. Then you can just ignore them with (answer hang up) so they can't leave voice mail or. (Straight to voice mail) either way your phone will stop ringing when they keep calling back.

Re: Things I Hate


Going on a snowmobile trip, and it's too cold to take the sleds out. High of -3f yesterday, woke up to -30f today. We went out for about 40 miles yesterday. But -10 then 70mph of wind makes the fingers a little cold pretty quick.
