    This is soooo embarassing...

    there I was, layed out on the floor in a 7-11... broomstick in hand, partly underneath a counter... looking for a lost part.


    As a customer was getting himself a big gulp, he heard me saying to no one in particular: " I jus gotta find my nut!!!" I know its around here somewhere!"

    So he replied: "hey buddy, I know what ya mean." And he quickly departed with his drink.


    Then when I finally found my nut, it was stuck in a syrup spill up near the back wall.
    So now I'm squeezing between two machines and bending over to reach between the CO2 2 lines and syrup lines to try to find that lost nut.


    And when I finally retreived it, I exclaimed: "I found my nut!!!" And this woman who was up at the counter making a purchase, when she saw me like that and heard those words... she looked at me kinda funny.

    I recall saying something to the affect that its tough to lose one of your nuts, expecially when you only got four of them to begin with.


    Of course, I was making referance to the big nuts on the face cover of a slurpee machine!

    But by then, she was already out the front door. So she never heard just how many nuts I did have.


    So be it...

    And if you don't like my "flat rate up front pricing" try and negotiate the price on that big mac you just bought pricing is exactly the same method!

    You mean the counter Guy named "GUY". That was one crazy place, had some good prices on surplus stuff. Was more of a hang out than a supply house. I miss Traco Suffolk

    That story just crack me up! I have the same problem as r12rules, I tend to just speak out-loud to myself. I can relate. As terrible as it is, I am still laughing.

    I am wondering if you raised animals. Folks who work around animals tend to talk to themselves, talking calms the animals and in the case of horses they know where you are and not just your disposition. I raised animals as a child but I guess I will never break the habit of ''thinking-out-loud'''.

    Thanks for the post r12rules, that was a real hoot I can relate to!
