    Matt may be totally inept with anything Lowe’s or Home Depot in his hand, but I can see him being a barista.

      I forgot to add Harbor Freight Tools. Heh. My favorite tool store.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:16 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Is there any topping that rhymes with the word “hurt”? I can’t think of one, but if there is, I would order that because it comes out “harrrrrt” with Matt.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      That is undoubtedly pumpkin spice in Matt’s hand. 🙂

      Harbor Freight is fine for some stuff, but you have to watch it with some of the made in China tools – just won’t hold up to heavy use. I do like the floor jack I bought from them – so far so good.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:02 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Stuff like tarps and basic hand tools are fine at Harbor Freight. And I have a set of masonry drill bits and a step bit that are really nice. Just don’t buy anything electronic there. I tend to feel a little guilty when I buy stuff at HF, just because I know most of it is cheap Chinese crap that undercuts the manufacturers of quality stuff.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:02 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, my thing is I don’t know how to do a ton like you RCF, so I don’t need a $300 drill. But yeah, a lot of stuff there is not heavy duty, especially the stuff they give you free with a coupon (I think I have gotten about 10 or 12 of those free screwdriver sets…not great but free is good!).

      They have introduced some contractor grade tools over the last year or 2 though, so they’re stepping up to try to compete with Dewalt, Craftsman, etc.

      Haha. That’s funny. I have to show it to a friend who lives at HFT (at least before Covid). He has to drive by it so much on the way to and from work he will run in and buy one of those little box cutters for retail minus 20% with a coupon and get what became boxes of the freebies. lol. Thing is, he donates a lot of that stuff to our foreign mission work. People in Panama need the flashlights and stuff like that.

      BTW, even some of the more expensive name brand tools are made in China now. I guess they had to do that to compete with Walmart as well as HFT. I lot of their tools look exactly the same except for color differences in some cases.

    BTW, you all are my friends, so just so you know, I didn’t bow out yesterday because I was mad about anything political anyone said disagreeing with me. I just got busy! I just thought I would say that because of the timing of said bow out.

      *TDS. Apparently I have issues, too.



    • Realme
      11:12 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      So does TDS mean you are pro Trump or anti? Is there a vaccination? Do the masks help?



    • ClutchCargo
      11:16 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      TDS is when somebody hates Trump so much that they freak out over anything he does, even if it is something good. Trashburn suffers from Cal Derangement Syndrome, which is similar.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:34 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      I’m sure RCF appreciated the fee analysis ha ha.

    Was this a Starbucks? If so, that explains it all.



    • Realme

      I get that they can’t take potentially covid contaminated items back through the window, but just put a trash can there. Problem solved.

    I like to go all Matt on a drive thru when they tell me to pull out of line and wait, but there isn’t anyone behind me. Like whose time are we saving if it isn’t holding anyone up? They get real mad, but they lie and say things like, your food is going to take 8 more minutes. Finally the other day, an Arby’s woman just answered honestly, “it’s because of our timer.” Oh, okay, no problem then.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:19 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Arby’s: Would you like any sauces?

      Me: 1 Horsey and A LOT of Arby Sauce.

      I get back to work and there is 1 packet of each. 0-10 really quick right there.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:22 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Okay, so how long did he argue at the drive-thru? Just take it, and with much pomp, drop it right in front of the drive-thru.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:54 am September 2, 2020 Permalink

      Yes, the pulling forward is a game they play to keep the numbers looking good for avg time spent in the drive through line.

      The 3 pepper sauce is good stuff.

      3 Pepper sauce is great. I’m an Arby sauce fan. I could drink that stuff with a straw.

      12:00 pm September 2, 2020 Permalink

      I don’t like the horsey stuff. It’s like gasoline fumes or something going up my nose. My wife loves it though. I love spicy food but can’t do the horseradish.

      “What? Me worry?”

      I never knew about that song. People in the comments are saying it was originally a cardboard record insert in the magazine in like 1963. Who remembers the records on the backs of cereal boxes? I think I’ve asked that before but not sure. Anyway, it was thin clear plastic on the back and you cut the back off and trimmed it.

    Oh great, the roofers are back on top of our building. I was hoping they would finish last night. Sometimes it’s not too bad but sometimes it sounds like they have jackhammers instead of nail guns. I guess it depends on how close they are to my office.
