And for those who think I'm a sissy, it's a big warehouse/office. Lots of places to hide. I usually send my dog in first just in case. He's not here, and if anything has been messed with we need a police report anyway.

Add to my other dog is sick and needs to be at the vet in a couple hours, it's a bit of a crap day.

I don't even mess with these - just call the police.

Re: Things I Hate


I don't think I would send my dog in I love her to much.

Did a walkthrough on a 150,000 sqft warehouse a while ago, half the lights didn't work and every time I opened a door I was like well this is where I'm gonna find a horde of people and get killed.

Re: Things I Hate


Turns out that one of real estate agents had forgotten to put the key back. He arrived just before the cops arrived. Cop was cool about it.

As for the dog. It looks like it was one strip of onion that caused him to be sick. bloody stool, upset stomach, dehydration, etc. 260 bucks later and he's coming around.

I dropped it and wasn't fast enough to stop him. I knew it wasn't good for them, but just figured he'd be farting all night and it might be kind of funny.

It wasn't. Though he is farting now after getting a water injection, anti-nausea shot and other fun stuff.

I gave my old fridge that broke to my assistant, and this is the text he sent me!

"$62 mother board off eBay. Great garage fridge!"

I was working on a household project once while drinking in an area that was very poorly lit. I cut the cord of the circular saw twice in the same night.

Seems the transmission just went out in my truck. And I just put a new radiator in it last weekend. Sigh.
