Re: Things I Hate


Mine quit running in the middle of the driveway a few days ago. I had to take the carb off and clean it and replace a hose. Fun to do while it's below freezing....

I hate when I don't wrap enough toilet paper around my hand and my finger breaks through while I'm wiping.

Other way for me. When i was younger getting used to the GC thing, and just threw my crap in the truck to book it to the next site to go put out a fire instead of handling it properly and saying it can wait, i couldnt find anything when i needed it.

I drop my tail gate when i am using tools. When i am done with something i put it on the tailgate. Drill boxes and what not stay out at the truck and i pack in the tools. I dont leave till everything is back in the truck box. Anytime someone sees my tail gate dropped they know i must be working.

Im doing a remodel in a golf course community right now, one of my buddies who is also a GC text me when he drives by and see my truck with the tail gate dropped. Hey, thanks for the drill or saw or whatever. if theives were thick here id have to change my style.

Never been an ultra neat freak though. Just needs to go where it goes.

Welders seem to be the biggest neat freaks out of all the trades in my experience.

Having driven many different trucks over the course of my life I've determined they all get miserable mileage.
