Something told me to keep my mouth shut.
Next we'll hear "I propelled my car using my feet through a hole in the floor!"
You don't???

When people jokingly say, "My car is right outside!" every time I'm carrying a 50" flat panel TV through an office building.

One day I'm going to retort by saying, "...and your wallet is in my pocket."

When people say "Hot enough for ya?" On the hottest day of the summer while your sweating your ass off!

You should ask them "what kind is it?" And then just "deal.......where do you want the TV?" if you like the car........ :thumbsup:


On topic though, people who don't/won't bag their own groceries.....we still have only paper bags here, and watching people stand there like dummies bugs the LS out of me........

Hasn't happened in a little while, but there aren't many that drive me off the edge of a cliff faster than a home owner who takes it upon himself to signal the crane when trusses are being lifted up onto the walls. My blood boils every time I hear:

"WHERE DO YOU WANT 'EM AND I'LL TELL HIM WHERE TO PUT IT!!!"

1. As if me and my guys don't know what we're doing and can't manage the task without assistance...

2. Infallibly the HO has no clue what he's doing.

3. He'll make some ridiculous hand gesture, confuse the hell of the crane operator, then I have to ask the HO to leave his own property.

Something about cranes makes people want to be heros and save the day...

And for the burgh guys!!!

In Philly it's RAIDiator.

I asked for the sawsall once from a guy I had working for me and for the next few days he kept calling it the saw saw. I ignored it for a while but it was driving me nuts. When I corrected him he was like " well that name makes a whole lot more sense than saw saw" it was pretty funny.

I could care less.

Misuse of hypocrisy, hypocritical, hypocrite, when they really mean inconsistent.

Clip vs Magazine

Movie posters with fingers on the trigger.

Their, there and they're.

Liberals but more so RHINOs.

And last but my least...

People who don't get when I'm right and they are wrong.

I was working siding a big apartment building one time and the guy working for me realized that the foreman of the site had the same last name of somebody he used to know. so he asked this guy if he knew this person. Turned out to be the forman's uncle. so my worker asked how the fella was doing. Foreman said he passed away. the whole rest of the day this guy keeps going "I can't believe he died I'm so mortified."

There's probably a bunch of members that could just list my name.

But I could care less what others think.
