I sent him a friend request.
It has been a while since I logged in over there.

No reason to be civil or wear pants. I can't wait.

It's like he's on another planet or something. Major Tom?

So got to work this morning and found the driver's mirror on the box truck I use broken on the floor. Being a used Uhaul truck, they have parts online for them. But all the mirrors and associated hardware is sold out. Go figure. So after I'm done with the bs around the shop I've been working on the past 2 and a half hours, need to drive over to the UHaul place and see if they might sell them. Highly doubt it since the online parts site didn't have any.

You don't need no stinkin' mirrors.

Sold out? Like the planet has been completely relieved of inventory of these parts?

Just their online inventory. If it wasn't a 14' box truck and didn't have so many blind spots I'd probably would drive it.

Were there 2 arms connecting it to the truck?

Look for parts for the F-450 too

Hmmm. A quick google image search leads me to the following conclusion: You're screwed.

So, my lady friend was in for a DOUBLE gastroscopy yesterday & insisted she'd be back at work today; EVERYONE said "Ha, no you won't"...

Well, she insisted on going to work &, two hours after starting, she was in an ambulance after collapsing in agony...

You just can't tell some people...

That's how ladies roll down under.

I've always wanted to say that.

My mom had plenty of those over the years. She never got use to the discomfort. Definitely not something to go back to work from. Probably should have scheduled it for a Friday and used the weekend to recover

The issue with that idea is, being a chef, she doesn't really have a weekend...

One thing is for sure, I need to see if I can't get out of spraying and fertilizing properties. Flipped our Z Sprayer twice, once at the shop around our run off ponds and another time at a commercial complex because of a tree root. Way too much liability using this thing at least for me. Unless my boss trades this older model in for a new model that has a lower center of gravity and is wider, lowering it's chances of rolling on a hill. Oh well hopefully will be moved out of Minnesota here by October into a different state and start a new job. Then it won't even matter.

South Dakota or Nebraska. We are looking at both places. My fiancee's family lives in Nebraska and most of mine live in Minnesota so we're trying to split the difference. More than 7 hours of driving and I'm burned out. Though South Dakota has no state income tax, so I can save more technically and just get federal back.
