Yes! That's Exactly What I Need. 432 Measuring Wheels.




There is no point to this post, I just think it's funny.

I put a Milwaukee Measuring Wheel into my Home Depot cart a while back. Well, for some reason, whenever I log in, it has changed the quantity. Just random amounts. 16 of them once, 80-something one time.

Today, it had 432 of them in my cart. For the low, low price of $30,000, they all could have been mine.

FedEx pulled up to my house recently and I thought, "Hmm, I don't remember ordering anything... Crap, I hope I didn't accidentally click the wrong button and ordered everything in my Amazon cart."

It was something the kid ordered....

Those Yellow Jackets are pricey, but it's all I use.

I talk to my pro rep, and he does something where I get them a lot cheaper. Got a 14/3 for like 17 bucks or something.

I get them locally for about this price. I can get a 100' for less than that 50'.

No, I'm still cheap when drunk.
I guess the app on my phone was open, had some stuff in my cart instead of the watch list... Got an email that my order was placed, about $1200 worth of tools.
messaged the seller and was canceled quick.
