The Things You Hear …

SinksI was at an architectural salvage place over the weekend and was able to walk out with two great items.

The first was three Lacava porcelain shelves for 85% off (they list for $305). What a deal!!!!

The second occurred when we were checking out. As were were waiting a gentleman staggered in with a clearly swollen and bruised nose. Without being asked, he said: “You want to know how I got this nose? I was at a client’s house and she came on to me. I said no, so she decked me.”

This left the counter help, and us, looking at each other in a daze … until one of the staff uttered: “Wouldn’t it just be easier to admit that he got drunk, passed out, and that a shovel hit him in the face as he was falling?”

Man, I gotta love a place with attitude!!

    I know. The Forklift is great. Its the cheapest of the three around (if you count Baltimore) … but all three are hit and miss. But hey, when you strike gold, why question it.
