Re: Things I Hate (3)


Figured Canada's shale oil would taste pretty nasty too.

Hoping he means Canola oil

Fun fact: Canada is the top producer of canola oil (rapeseed).

It matters who's posting.

We shoo a couple people off, but right at the end of the day, while I'm installing the brackets, this dude is shuffling papers and making notes on them with a giant red permanent marker!
I didn't even bother saying anything to him. What am I going to do, time travel back to his youth and raise him better?
Dropped dime to the project manager and bounced.

Of course they want to know if I can fix it. **** if I know, I've never been dumb enough to draw on a piece of wood with a red permanent marker.
Rubbing alcohol takes off sharpie marks unless it's penetrated deeply but with that finish, you should be ok.

Kid was sick. I punted.

We got a solid half assed day in though. Estimated a kitchen paint job, picked up materials for the next adventure, and worked on counting to 30. With help, if we keep practicing, I might have it down before he's 5.

The Aldi curse.
That's just flatout bull****.

The "gotta keep to the budget" is already being tapped by buying pb. And then to cheap out on top of it?

You ever watch the movie “Platoon”?

Awful lotta O’Neils around here.
(You know...walked around like tough guys, pretending to be Barnes’s; hid under corpses when the shooting started.)

Not many Elias’s though.

I had this disagreement with TP and beer when we first got married. Shes very frugal, I get that. Not with beer or TP. Lol

She got the message when I bought my own and we had a 12 pack of beer in the pantry for three years and she had her budget blown twice in a row by the extra purchases lol
