Wouldn't you know it. My next swing... my junk. Wasn't as funny.

I hit myself in the face with the claw of my hammer one time. Was whack ing away at something (that's what she said) and wasn't really being careful.. chipped the bone right beside my eye. I pay a bit more attention after that.

Re: Things I Hate


Did that with a flatbar one time. Have no idea how I didn't break anything. I was prying full force with both hands trying to remove this old casing. One foot on the sheathing, both hands pulling toward my face as hard as I could. Finally I got what I wanted and the piece came loose. Bar smashed me in the face. I was shocked I didn't think about that happening. Nice big bruise. Nice big gash. Felt great. hah

Re: Things I Hate


When I worked in a garbage bag production place we used to test bag seals by trapping air in them then pushing on them till they would pop.

Let me tell you , you only made the mistake of popping the bag on a downward angle and hitting you're in the nuts once.

Not so much you think just doesn't cross your mind until the boys are sore.

It's not like I was aiming for it. Of course it is like hunting an elephant in a closet. Really big and hard to miss.

It's a good thing God put a knob on the end, or your hand would fly off and kill you.

Well think im stuck doing this pig. Forgot to mention its for my biggest account who ive been installing for for 13 years. Phase 2 of his other project will be ready this fall. 7000' of G and L and phase one was fastest and easiest money ive ever made.

Was pretty much taking a gamble by turning it down and possibly leaving an opening to my main competitor who has taken all my other builders in this religious area over last 10 years. He works real cheap using 5 spanish speaking crews.

Rest of the building isnt bad at all actually its just this one side that sucks. The PM is trying to hire the siding guys to set up pump jacks across this one side ..Otherwise gonna tell him to have a lift dropped off for me.
