fastenal.com Cheaper Faster and Knowledgeable? WTF I Love You! :)

2017-02-03_01-16-07

In this case Home Depot did not have the screws and Lowes had a small package only (the price was not marked but I wanted 100). But I could purchase the nuts at both for around $4.50 for 100.

If you have ever shopped for screws at either box store you know the selector is bad…. Lowes seems worse around here. But Fastenal was very refreshing…. It was like walking into a store that knew what they were selling! I actually enjoyed it. 🙂 Plus it was cheaper and THEY HAD MY PRODUCT! I already went to HD and Lowes to look from the stupid screws.

(Also of course I did not ask for help at HD or Lowes…. I know better plus the screws are in order. But someone asked me for help at HD. LOL 🙂 )

Can you spot the employee that is working? :)

You are correct I would never be a Police officer! I would also hate to work anywhere where one mistake at WORK could make you goto jail or get killed! Just think how many fast food employees would be in jail! Who would make our food! LOL 🙂

I also hate to say it… But why do motorcycle cops always drive around like they are filming Chips? Also besides writing tickets…. What is the purpose of using motorcycles?

Everyone wants a handout?  But why?

I get it…. There is nothing worse then a changer stealing your money!  Maybe a vending machine?  This is not the point!  LOL 🙂  But lets be honest…. When you get ripped off do you honestly call?  Or get angry?  Sorry I do not.  I will get irate when a vendor has a crappy bill acceptor though and it will not accept my money.  Why does everyone not use MEI acceptors?

I have a Hamilton DRS…. Basically 2 separate changers in one box.  I got 2 calls today…. Why when I have changer problems must it steal $2 / $5 or $10?  Why?  Never $1?  Even when the last bill 98% of the time are ones?  Plus before you even think what I know you are thinking…. This is not a Rowe BC-100!  This machine works correctly and does not just keep accepting bills.  (Not saying Rowes are bad changers or always kept accepting bills!  I enjoy Rowe things.  🙂 )

4 Year Old Soccer and Politics / Society

While watching my son’s soccer games I was constantly wondering who was winning.  Sometimes there was no need to keep score!  If you know what I mean.  🙂  Other times it was pretty close…. But when there is no goalie the scores get kind of high some times.  (It is hard to keep track.)

Well my son wants to try t-ball…. T-ball has interesting rules.  No outs and of course no scores.  (Hopefully no hitting the ball!  This could cause violence later!  🙂 )

Take this election…. So what you hate the other party and your “team” lost?  Why would you cry about it loser?  Seriously  what is the worse thing that could possibly happen if you work?  I know the passing of the Affordable Care Act…. seriously I cried also!  Maybe I should have burnt down something?  🙂  Also I am very concerned about the environment…. We should harvest any and all our resources?

Also I endorse passing a law to have mandatory little league scores and you have to tell the losers they lost!  Bunch of losers…. My son’s soccer team was. JK How would anyone know?   They might have been AWESOME!   LOL 🙂  But they were really not….. My son was on their team.  He was to young.  Everyone had lots of fun though…. but that does NOT make you win.  But winning seriously is not everything….  It is the only thing!  JK 🙂


Never gets old! LOL :)

Is it required when you return a complaint phone call for them too:
1)  exaggerate the amount?
2)  change the amount while talking to you?

Sure someone could have wanted to wash their back hoe and put $45 in the meter box….. But odds are they didn’t.  LOL 🙂  I have debated this with my Dad and he just has no clue and is just wrong…. I believe.

But my favorite is ” I lost a dollar…. I mean I put $20 in there”. LOL  🙂  I’m sure you can forget what you put in the machine…. it’s always the inflation that is funny.

My other big problem is when people are irate over $1…. it makes me want to ask where they work.  Since only Excellence has to happen there!  LOL 🙂

PNC math problems…. LOL :)

Well…. I went to PNC today. I got a female teller (but that really is irrelevant.  Some of the dumbest bankers I have ever seen have been male.  The smartest banker was actually female…. not this one.  🙂 )…. I must have gotten my $50 stacks mixed up?  I also only count them once because my count is irrelevant honestly.  So basically my short stack gets mixed with a $50 stack.

So the lady says basically…. “are all these straped ones supposed to be $100?”  I say “yes…. so one is short?”  She says “yes $83″…..  now all old people know exactly what happened next.  🙂  But the problem is she is a bank teller.  She needs to figure out the number to tell me…. She also selected NOT to use a calculator! Let me just say…. I could physically hear her brain thinking about it!  It made her face also turn red.

Quick note…. for anyone who can not add and subtract in your head.  If someone puts money down and believes they have the correct number (I am just being nice…. of course it was correct. 🙂 )…. count what they have and do not start making suggestions!  Like $27, $14 and she might have gotten to $17 after using her computer?  But people my age (who grew up with digital calculators) or younger…. can not add or substrate in their head.  Only old people…. plus nerds like me I guess?  🙂

Quick…. here is a test. What is 25% off $2.00? Ask someone else…. watch. Then laugh inside…. when they get it wrong or just ignore you completely. LOL 🙂

Used Car Wash Equipment for Sale

Yes…. I have used carwash equipment for sale…. But I do sell my equipment for a reasonable rate…. I would expect to pay.  If I needed the item…. I try and treat others how I would have wanted to be treated purchasing items. 🙂 Not scrap price and not carwashconsignment.com price either…. so my prices are actually reasonable if you need the equipment.  LOL 🙂  My equipment link is here Stuff to Purchase.  But this list is not complete and I have a ton of other stuff.  I also have some sources for other equipment. 

I am all the time purchasing used car wash equipment at the right price.  So yes I will purchase your old car wash equipment for the right price.  Anything at the right price…. Oh and I have purchased some stupid stuff.  🙂  Then I will be stuck with it for 5-10 year trying to sell it!  LOL 🙂

Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag

VETO PRO PAC CT-XL Large Cargo Tote Update….. OLD POST about the BAG and another HERE.

Well I  purchased the Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag after purchasing their Tote.  I really like both bags.  This is a picture review of my new Veto Pro Pac Tech XL Tool Bag…. I have actually owned this bag for over 4 months and I forgot about reviewing it. But I talked to Greg the other day…. this has got to be the best purchase I have purchased to date! (Well tool purchase…. my Jim Coleman Super Saver was my best car wash purchase.)

The problem with every bag except this one…. can really be summed up with my wrench collecting photo.  I was carrying around (picture above) way to maybe wrenches. They really do have different uses…. but I could never find any of them in my BucketBoss.  I would away use my Knipex pliers which is not a bad choice.  🙂  I also have purchased way over the cost of this bag because I could not find the tools I needed.
