I had fun at the home depot the other day. I had about 150' of smurf
tube, 14 carefully coiled in the bottom of a cart and one loose stick.
I ran all my fittings and small stuff through the machine and asked
the helper droid to crank in quantity 15 on the stick I had out.
The supervisor lady said she wanted to check the ones I had in the
cart. I stood back and told her to go for it. 140 feet of 3/4" smurf
tube sprung to life. People were running, babies were crying and women
fainted. There was certainly a lot of laughing. Short story I got the
smurf tube for the price of the one I scanned for gathering it up and
getting it out the door.
