I know what you mean. I have to go to Johnstone and John Deere tomorrow, they are both only 1 1/2 miles from the shop. It should only take me 2 or 3 hours to pick up a couple of relays and a box of Rainbird heads.
Small store but they have what I need. They get most of their stuff from the Ft Myers warehouse which comes from Tampa. Usually I just order and have it sent to me but I have got 52 hours here already and there is 3 more days until the end of the pay period. Looking at 85 to 90 hours before I'm done. But I'm not complaining.
