Almost always, the coffee they hold is the temp of whatever the truck is. Could be freezing, sometimes sun baked, usually tepid, and that's OK, I still drink the stuff.



Sometimes, pencils fall in, flies drown. I fish the stuff out and carry on.



On several Friday nights, I've been seen hanging with the framing crew on the job site, them drinking a brewski from a case of beer anonymously delivered, and I'm still sipping "something" from the mug. Can't be seen drinking on the job, ya know.



The mug is a thing. It is my one fingernail hold on civility for the times when everything goes to hell, the porta-johns reek, the trades are high, or worse, didn't show up, the customer is screaming, the truck has a flat, my phone breaks, etc.
I have a few Yeti and Contigo travel mugs yet I still use a regular coffee mug...it's not uncommon for there to be half a dozen dirty mugs in the cab of my truck.

Ditto.

Sometimes I have to go fetch one from the truck to have morning coffee.

I probably have 3 dozen mugs but only 6 or so that are over-sized and used on a daily basis.

There is something to be said for paying full retail at an Apple store. I'll try to remember that on the next one.

I've always paid full retail. I don't think you save much locking yourself into a contract and monthly phone payments. I can't stand contracts.

Just get one of these.

This is what I have. Dropped it 10' onto a concrete slap, dunked it in water, got it covered in drywall mud and hosed it off. Perfect.

Same. It never works out well for me
1st time service area sucked and got stuck buying the contract out.
2nd time Apple iPhone 3g 2 years into a 3 year the Apple company made my phone slow and crap with updates to tried to push the 4g. (Apple admitted to this years later) never again apple.
3rd time I broke my phone a couple months in and ended up just buying a crap phone to replace it.
For some reason if I just buy my phone it doesn't break haha.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


An iPhone direct from Apple is unlocked. It is not assigned to a carrier. You can use it wherever and with whomever you choose.

And the staff might be named Fluffy and Biff, but by God, they know their sh!t. BUT: I wanted an iPhone SE. In Space Gray.And I wanted it TODAY.

Not a 6, not a 6S, not an 8 Plus, and certainly not an XS.

Just a regular iPhone SE, in Space Gray with 32 gigs of ram, and one that uses Verizon towers and NOT AT&T towers.

With the lack of keyboard I hope they improved google speak since they are pushing flip phones again. I liked my Razor.

The Motorola RAZR was the best damned phone I ever had, bar none.

I had a Rugby II , was one great phone too. Very doable , dropped it 30 feet once all the happened was cracked the screen. Was water proof, good to have if you drop your phone in cup of coffee, . Was a dumb phone , but sometimes still wish I was using it.
