On another recent thread here someone mentioned a minimum 6" distance between the valve and the spicket. Now we know why. Haha.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


I'm posting a list of hacked things I did this week to get them off my chest.

1. I dripped paint on carpet, then used a pair of manicure scissors to artfully snip away the offending bits. I don't think anybody will notice that the hairs are 1/16th lower in one quarter sized section of the floor.

2. I was installing a really annoying shaped light fixture in my own house and it was a pain in the ass getting my arms around it, so I let it dangle from the ground wire while I attached the load and neutral. Worked.

3. I hit a fire hydrant next to my customer's driveway leaving the job yesterday. It was dark and rainy, and frankly, I thought I could clear the hydrant. I did.... except for the part where the wheelwell flairs out a little. That's gone now. Hydrant was fine though, so I'm calling that a win.

I made a special trip to get clear cedar [over 200$] for a gate I needed to build and I find after it is cut up that I had the wood taking up space in my shop already .

Fire hydrants will take quite an impact.

We don't pay licensing every year only registration = tax. Our drivers license is every 6 years or so. We do a safety check every year but that's cheap.

Our safety checks are not government stations. I go to Jimmy's Upholstery and get mine done. I'm in and out of there in less than 10 min. It's the fastest 25$ he can make.

I'm guessing last board and they cut it short. At $50+ a board he'd let it slide.
