Why did you assume I was in the Navy?
So tell me again why someone who whines about having a business without
the necessary equipment <snip> how a person who makes money woodworking
doesn't have a truck for hauling supplies, equipment, or whatever, comes
on here to whine about the lack thereof, complains about a $500 minimum
that ONE company she dealt with just instituted, <snip>
Sigh. And, I had promised myself I wouldn't respond to any posts
from Homer, unless he posted in response to a post of mine first. Ah
well, so it goes.
Well, Homer, were you in the Navy?
I didn't see any whining, by Renata. She stated a problem, using
capitals, and punctuation; and asked for input. Instead, she gets
There is no requirement for a person making money, or even a
living, woodworking, to own a truck, or even a trailer. When I was a
kid, a man just up the way from us made his living woodworking, out of a
one-car garage. He had no truck, he had no trailer that I know of.
Yet, he made a living, and supported himself and his wife, with no
probem. I knew another man, he didn't even have a vehicle.
Same thing, there's no rule some has to buy $500 worth of wood at a
time. Yes, a company can make a rule like that. No, it does not mean
she has to buy that much, or that anyone has to. Even if anyone did
have the $500, they might not have room to store that much wood. I sell
some stuff, and it would be a really major hardship on me to come up
with $500 for a wood purchase. But, it's a moot point, because I don't
have storage room.
I know this is a shot in the dark, but why don't you give a reply
that is actually of use, once in awhile?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might
as well dance.

Some tunes I like.
it wasn't so much of "jumping all over her" as the ensuing arguments
indicate. I was being facetious about a couple of things, ALONG WITH my
recommendation to get a truck, but THAT got lost in the shuffle. IF you
check her later posts, she called me some choice names, and then
mentioned to someone else SHE IS GONNA GET A TRUCK! I rest my case!
who would be as idiotic as YOU to push a lost cause? namely this STUPID
argument. Havent' you had enough, already? How about if I tell you NOW
that you can have the LAST WORD. would that satisfy your need to "win"
(I use the term loosely)?
enough...this is boring now...

I had to stoop to unladylikeness and it's all BAD's fault!
But I thank both of you for the thought, anyway

You know Dave, when I first started reading this group, not long ago, I
read your posts, and thought "he seems like a nice guy, I wonder why
others treat him so badly". Thank you for enlightening me. Now I know.
You are welcome, Mike. I'd hate to keep you in the dark about so
important an issue as my popularity, or lack thereof.
Explain to me your rationale for making a negative character assessment
of me because of the options I listed .
BTW, as far as I am concerned you are WHINING about me. If I offend you
so, just plonk me and enjoy the Wreck without my presence. Wouldn't
that be the adult thing to do, rather than expect me to change into a
clone of you; someone who wrote everything from YOUR viewpoint?
