The Tool Repair Called Me After 2 Years

I'm a little forgetful sometimes but this beats them all.I dropped of my bosch hammer drill to be repaired two years ago,and since i own a few i seamed to have forgoten about it.well the day before yesterday they called and reminded me i still have a tool there.they claimed they called on a few occasions,i personally think there full of ****.I went right there paid the $65.00 and called them tool kidnappers.i told them i needed another drill fix this week,when should i call to see if its done,in about 2 years? i think it got shoved to the back of the shelf and forgoten about.I thought about tying a bow on my finger to remember next time but i'm affraid i'll forget what the bow was for.

Re: The Tool Repair Called Me After 2 Years

I rented a floor sander in 1988, it's still in my garage and they have never called for it, I have even returned to rent additional items and nothing has ever been said about it, I just never got around to returning it. I mentioned it to them in the mid 90's and they had no idea what I was talking about, so here I am today with it.


Floor sander - Clark Model - Almost a vintage model

I've got a mess of rented orange traffic cones and two air movers that the water damage guys use by similar means. Someone else rented them, and I was the guy cleaning up at the end of the job, so they miraculously became mine. Nobody wanted to claim them.

My brother, who's a heating tech, gave me a pair of stilts that was left on a job. The clean-up crew was going to toss them in the dumpster!
