Re: Things I Hate


I hate having to repeat myself a gazillion times about working efficiently.

Why move something out of your way only to put in a place where it will be in your way ten seconds later and you'll have to move it again? Then, why do that several times a freaking day?

Not not put tools away when you're finished with them so when you, or I, need it again we don't spend 30 minutes trying to freaking find it.

I hope so, been looking for a long time now. I'm not even being too picky. Back seats, power windows, 4wd. Just very cheap

Because I'm not that bright. That's too early for almost everything.

Putty? Just spit on it. Or cover it with drywall and act like you didn't see it. Or better yet convince the homeowner that that is perfectly sound. You have seen that a million times.

It's it because I'm a city boy, I thought he was involved in building a airport runway in some way. No crop dusters here that's for sure.lol
