Re: Things I Hate


I really hate this stupid rain right now. So much moisture in the air it changes paint that dries in 8 hrs to paint that still hasn't dried in 16 hrs.

It could be worse, you could have had it wash off. I won't paint if rain is a possibility.

It's doors in my shop in the paint area and it still doesn't matter. If it washed off I be in REAL BIG TROUBLE. Even the oil based clear coat on a mantle piece took forever to dry.

Re: Things I Hate


Watching the forklift roll into my truck this morning and not being able to do anything about it.

Owner already called a body shop to have them take care of it though

I couldn't do anything about this as I watched it happen. Stopped for oncoming traffic and saw a car coming up fast in my rear view.

She hit my utility trailer, which bent up my stinger and the trailer came off the ball and into my bumper.

About a minute before it happened I had the thought of, "I should have just grabbed the van from the office for this"

Re: Things I Hate


I hate how in a city I can only get roll off dumpsters from a company that the city has a contract with. Wtf??? I never understand this, but I'm trying to get dumpsters and this company is jacking around. Anywhere else I'd go to their competition, but guess what? I can't because only this dumbass company is allowed to set dumpsters in city limits. How is this even legal? Can I get a contract to be the only contractor in city limits? This is freaking bulsh.

Eh, whatever. Happens every year, maybe not a "hurricane" but something akin to it with lots of water and a bunch of wind. Just gotta keep on keepin on. More just sucks with all the moisture than anything, wind we get sporadically throughout the year. Most don't know it but I'm more towards the center of the state and we get a tornadoes in winter so the wind is a constant deal... This much water just makes a mess of everything.

Nah man, it's already too late. The zombie worm burrowed to the center of his brain and done laid its 1000 eggs.

That bleating you just heard was just a reflex thing.

Just tell your wife you don't mind doing favors for women you aren't married to as long as you get to pick the woman.....

Same result.
