    Longest you had a USPS package “in transit”?

    For some reason the main USPS distribution center in Denver is like a Black Hole. Things sit there for days, sometimes weeks before moving on. Another slow route is Colorado to North Carolina for some reason?

    Are all Plumbers, Water, and Well guys the same?

    I have done quite a bit of plumbing work myself in the past. Unfortunately, there's so many hours in the day, and to keep things moving, one is forced to hire contractors to keep a project moving along, especially when we have a very short construction window that gets shut down early with...

    Are all Plumbers, Water, and Well guys the same?

    So, dealing with Plumbers and Water Well guys, I see a pattern. Granted, I'm in a remote area of Colorado, away from the big city, so my sampling of data is limited, but they are all the same. I have to argue with them constantly over materials...

    So, dealing with Plumbers and Water Well guys, I see a pattern. Granted, I'm in a remote area of Colorado, away from the big city, so my sampling of data is limited, but they are all the same. I have to argue with them constantly over materials, parts, how I want a system installed, etc. A...

    Inflation.......... ?

    Four weeks ago, I was pricing 20-ft one-trip shipping containers (Conex). $4500 delivered locally, which was up from $3600 two years ago. Today, prices are $5000-7000 without delivery. News reported this morning that Used Car prices are up 29% from this time last year.

    Inflation.......... ?

    I needed a couple 10-ft sections of 3" schedule 40 PVC pipe to finish up a drain system, and local plumbing supply charged me $47 per. Twice the price of Lowes or Home Depot, but I'm not driving 4-hours to save $40. Time is money. Plus the cost of fuel.

    Sad thing is, most people can't walk half way across the parking lot at the supermarket without getting tired. People are getting more lazy by the day.

    What cars you fools have?

    Was a fake plate, made up for the movie Vanishing Point. I looked in the data base, and nothing with an “OA” was ever used Colorado.

    Maggie’s The Woodchuck and Firewood Hoarders Thread

    I was visiting my Sister in the big city last month, and their HOA hired a Contractor to clear out all the dead trees in the neighborhood. Too bad I didn't have my truck, as this would have been going home with me.

    I decided I needed a bigger genset. Started looking for a Honda, and same story from everyone... We can't get them. Local dealer said he has had 6500 and 7000-watt units on order for sometime. I told him to call me when they come in, that was a few weeks ago. Just about tripped over this one...

    Maggie’s What do your local douchebags drive?

    Because the numbers are so great for Subaru's in Colorado, that equates to a greater number of douchebags driving them. However, every Audi All Road (Station Wagon) must require you to be a true douchebag to own. I see them always passing me on blind corners, ice covered roads, and fuck...

    Maggie’s What do your local douchebags drive?

    Almost every time the traffic is backed up on I-70 in Colorado, it's some Asshat with Illinois plates causing the problems because they think they own the fast lane, but they don't know what fast is.
