I love eating.

I just went to the supply house to pick up a part and while it was being picked I asked where they ate around there. Big guy behind the counter goes, "You want a White Castle burger?"

He pulls a box out from under the counter! Incredible!

Just what I needed. Then we stood there and talked about food for 10 minutes before I left. Dope.

Love when I finish up a service call for a customer and get their phone system back up and running and the customer gives you a giant hug because she can finally go home for the weekend

Re: Things I Love (2)


Burger yesterday at family restaurant in town.

1/2 pound of real beef, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce. Plus a healthy dose of vinegar on the fries.

Burger did look better, but I had already taken a big bite when I decided I'd better get a snap of it.
