Stopped by my breakfast restaurant to get a bite this morning. A sausage biscuit is a buck. A bacon biscuit costs $2.20. Why the hell is that?
I haven't driven my truck much in the last five years. I'm driving it today and on my lunch break, got a light sprinkle. Windshield wipers just smeared the water. Auto Zone was two blocks away, so I swing in to get new wiper blades. I grabbed two Rain-X blades and headed toward the register. Over $50.00 for two wiper blades?? I almost had a stroke. But, it's supposed to rain tomorrow, so I'll be able to see, coming in to work.
When I was a tanker, we had this thing called the tanker's bar. It was six feet long, with a pinch point, and we used it to pry all manner of things. It was listed on the tool receipt as a Bar, Pinch Point. Over the years I've had one thing or another that I could have applied a tanker's bar to, but just didn't have one. Wandering through Harbor Freight today, I saw a big bar, labeled 17 lb Posthole Digging Bar with Tamper. It ain't a tanker's bar, but it should serve as a nice expedient. I have to pull the forms off the slab, and with a chunk of firewood as a fulcrum, this thing should serve admirably.
