OK, but you won't get much work done that way.

No joke, I had a short old guy bumping into me a running his mouth standing in a grocery checkout line. When I get POd, I don't talk at all right before I blow a gasket. My GF told the guy I was deaf, so he backed off and STFU.

Only a cretin would strike someone over something like that.... .

The way i handle it (like with Austinite city boy's blocking the pumps) is to honk or get their attention and call into question their sexual preference, and call them a couple names in an even keeled tone and tell them to move their vehicle ( also call into question the masculinity of their vehicle ) before I drag their light weight ass out and move it for them (or back the **** up and wait your turn for the lumber ). If they choose to be a cretin after that that's their business, and the camera footage will show a guy speaking in an even keeled tone being struck before defending himself vehemently.....

I'm sure some of yall think that's going too far but I don't really G A S If more people didn't let people get away with rude behavior our lower tiers of society (those who think they are special snowflakes) would not think it's ok to act like hood rats and heathens. Hang out at a local grocery store and see how people act and if it doesn't make you sick your part of the problem, hoss.

I agree, but I'm not going to get into fist-fights over it.

I'd be good with the old style hockey rules - someone does something, and you whack them with a stick to smarten them up. 5 minutes in the penalty box, and you're rolling again.

Re: Things I Hate


That despite the extra effort I took to keep the flex hose from rubbing on my driveway it still burst after about 1 week. This is the 4th one that I got and only the 1st one lasted a month. The rest burst before 2 weeks.

Only good thing is the return policy.

Re: Things I Hate


Not sure what you're talking about.

When I water the Hibiscus and other flowers (and my onion) in the front yard I have a long driveway that the hose can drag on. I lift it up the best I can to prevent that. Didn't matter, burst anyway.

The outer casing seems intact so the inner silicone tubing must be crap quality. Now I'll have to use my normal heavy inflexible rubber hose to water the garden. This sucks. I really liked the hose other then it's <2 week lifespan.

Right and neither did I. I'm just saying, if we were cavemen in caveman times, the guy wouldnt have walked away.

I'm mostly British, I can behave nice and proper. But disrespect in such a rude way can get anyone fired up.

Yup. $30. Works good. Doesn't last. It's fantastic. To bad they don't last.

And I didn't "fall" for it. I knew they burst. I figured I could get the summer out of it. That would have been fine for me.
