At first I thought you were an annoying jerk.
Now I find out you're an annoying jerk I'm pretty sure I could have a
great time with on a fishing trip!
Don't suffer fools, let fools suffer...
If you ever want to come fishing in Canada, let me know!
While in high school, worked in a hardware store after school and on
One of my jobs was to be "Freddy" and use the pick up truck to deliver
items to customers.
This was in a town of about 15,000 in the mid 50's.
Open 8-5 M-T-TH-F, 8-12 W, 8A-9P Sat and closed Sunday.
Today the town has grown to maybe 20,000, Walmart and Lowes have come
Otherwise, not much has changed.
I was suggesting (jokingly) be the doctor or chef or whatevers... :)
That's a bummer--wouldn't really expect that so much. The only large
employer here is quite hardnosed but they're on a high-volume production
line where it isn't easy to get around a missing body. Other than that,
afaict virtually all employers are pretty laisse faire as to personal
time as long as the job gets done.
The guy I'd call here would go figure out what parts were needed if that
were necessary... :)
Well, sure, but does it have to be from the stroke of 8-12/1-5 rather
than 7-11/2-6, say on the rare once-off day?
Saw you're in E AL not too far from Hotlanta -- not around Roanoke by
any chance??? Had real good friends while in TN who were born and
raised there...they probably could tell you who "Freddy" is... :)
Generally 6:30 to 5:30, but Lowes and HD are on the way home. ;-)
If it's buying a 2x4 it's no problem to step out at lunch, but few
honey-do jobs are that simple. Most involve emergency trips to the
hos^h^h^hhardware store in the middle.
Didn't know where Roanoke was, so had to look it up. ;-) We've lived
here for a year so I'm not too familiar with the areas off the beaten
path. I live near Auburn, about 35mi South of Roanoke.
Well, I'm one of those "most". But I will say this about Home Despot:
1. They're cheaper on a lot of stuff (but not everything, so one needs
to comparison shop).
2. It's a hell of a lot easier picking up things like tubafours and
plywood there, assuming they have what you want (in the quality you can
tolerate): no problem sorting through the bins, within reason.
3. Their return policy is very good, to the point where it can be abused
(not saying I've ever done that ...).
4. They're open on Sundays, unlike my favorite local hardware store
(Ace), which is not only closed Sundays, but also promptly at 5:00
weekdays, which often sucks.
So as long as you don't need help (beyond "where is _____?"), you're fine.
