I hear that fuel prices are going to be high this winter, so I decided
it was time to get more use from my fireplace. Just when I thought I
heard it all, I went to buy a load of firewood from some local redneck
who spends his whole life behind a chainsaw.
I never bought from this guy but I saw his ad in the paper and he said
he had a variety of wood types so I thought he must have the prettiest
wood for me to choose from. I like my fireplace to look pretty so I
am careful of the kind of wood I buy. I went to the guys farm and
found piles and piles of wood in many different shapes and colors. I
finally found the type that I liked and told the guy I wanted a load
delivered. I was a little put off when he told me the price, but I
agreed to pay his price as long as he unloads the truck and stacks it
for me. He stroked my hair and agreed to stack the wood if I invite
him in for coffee. I told him he has a deal.
Just as I was getting ready to leave, the guy asked me how many cords
I want. Huh? I looked at the guy and said I dont want ANY cords. I
dont want to plug the logs in, I want the ready to burn, cordless
firewood. Everything these days is cordless, so why would I want old
fashioned firewood that needs to be plugged in ! Does this guy think
I'm an idiot?
Purchasing firewood can be so stressful.
