    Rain check that chicken feed. They love that, rain checked two gang boxes. When they came in they called. Only had one, and the large size. Next week they called, they were in. Go to get, not there, they mistakenly sold them......



    "But we have two of the large ones?"

    "Sure, I'll take those........for the sale price I reserved the smaller ones!"

    Nope, they no do that. Wouldnt fit back of my truck anyway.

    Couple more weeks, they come in. They gave me another 25% off from the rain checked sale price because of delay and one was missing lock set ups. 200 plus a gang box.

    Were you born an asshole ?
    Or did you work at it your whole life?
    Either way, it works out fine,
    Cause you're an asshole tonight.

    Life sucks, then you die....

    People say that life is good
    It don't seem good to me
    I'm lost without a paddle
    And I'm headed up shit creek
    People say that life is fun
    But I don't know why
    As far as I can tell
    Life sucks then you die

    Local scouts used to do that here, I didn't mind flipping the coin return to them, but then some whinging a*hole complained and the store put a stop to it.

    Went in to Covid (town) yesterday. Get some stuff, can get dish detergent but no TP. Figured out a way tho. My neighbor let's their dogs out, unattended, they come over and shit in my yard......thinking trade off here, I just go over and crap in their yard. Saves time flushing, water, and holding tank storage.

    Today being Friday, I picked up a 12 pack... of TP that is!
    Just happened to be in a store for other purposes and noticed they had some, so figured I'd better get it while it was available.

    Had a neighbor pulled that with me. Let Fluffie the dropkick mop-dog out the front door every day to run across street and crap my front yard.

    Well, I knew the time. She’d be on the cordless phone not paying a lot of attention. Standing on the front porch.

    Nothing accidental about it. I’d given her the glare at least once. Had even returned that dog home a few times.

    So one morning I walked the alleyway with square shovel and stick. Gathered quite a pile of dog crap, old and new.

    A half-hour before T-time, I laid a pyramid against the street curb.

    10’ before (NASA countdown, boys) I doused it with hot bacon grease. (It was in cooking that staple the plan came to me).

    Sat on my front step and burned a couple.

    Fluffie ate the whole thing before a fumbled football rescue was made.

    No more problems.

    Fluffie probably didn’t make it to the back door the next 24-hours in a timely fashion.

    As I suspected would happen, her husband never came to knock on my door. I believe he would have if informed. Ha!

    In fact, he’s the one probably took that dust mop to the veterinarians.

    What inspiration us this for grocery shortages due to parasite-panic?

    Douse your greasy coveralls with some patented stink. Slide em on before entering store. Their cart is fair game.

    Me? I’m gonna think, “How would kopcicle handle this”.

    Then dial it back.

    As that level of “thorough” is some odds-f’n serious mojo.

    He ain’t the only one.
