Spent 4 1/2hrs on a job that was supposed to be handled, correcting joist hangers. It is my least favorite thing to do, taking them off and reattaching. Blood Boil.
You are a carpenter, not a laborer, wtf is wrong with you son!
Does the side nail not pull it tight

Yes, in theory, however I was talking about not being pulled tight to the bottom of the joist.

But to no avail, nobody said a word.

Another thing I hate- 80's movies where everyone has a mullet.

Never seen that one, though I'm surprised I havent. The one I love is when they try to use a hammer on the bottom in order to make it tight, not realizing that its just bulges the sides out. I think it really busts my vessels because at that point its obvious they know they did it wrong, and instead of fixing it they just try and hide it.

Speaking of stuff like that, it really pisses me off when I come across guys who's "give a F" meters are completely broken.
