It's pre coffee and I woke up with a headache. So grumpy has been determined to be my default mood for the day.

Companies that have words like Precision, Tactical ect. I get that you are trying to differentiate you from the common shop. I get part of that is to charge out the ass. However, nowadays every 3rd dick is tactical precision pecker whats its.

Just once i want to find a shop that is named sloppy seconds. A shop that specializes in 80%. It doesn't get you todays tactical precision 100% whizbang boomstick. It gets you a used last years redheaded stepchild boomstick for a burger and fry.

I’m always amused by the ones that tout “Qualified” service/staff/etc. You ever see something like plumbers or dentists say they’re unqualified?

Good point. I always worry about the ones that tell me right off the bat that they are liscensed, bonded and insured.


It always makes me wonder if they did all on their phone on the way over.

Then they claim to be the official (whatever) of Summer! Yay!

The owners daughter runs the show because the only person that would give her a job is someone from the immediate family.

I think some of the A1, AAA, etc is a relic of the old Yellow Page days when businesses wanted to be first in the category.

You have just described the small (family run) roofing company that replaced our roof at the beginning of this year.

Materials: Excellent!

Workmanship: Excellent!

Administrative stuff, coordination, communication, billing . . . I do not see how any of these could have been worse than they were.

We got a good roof at a great price, no extra charge for the aggravation.



A mind is a terrible thing.

What irks me is "Solutions" and "Technologies" slapped on just about everything.

Used to be called smoke alarms. Now they are air contaminant technologies. Used to be pest controls. Now they are pest eradication solutions.

"Master Barber". Some states have this professional license. My state doesn't. It implies that the person can do any and all haircuts without error. I am always skeptical. I feel it also implies that the rest of us are somehow second-class barbers.


Two things bring me to tears. The unconditional Love of God,the service of the United States Military,past,present,and future.

I would rather meet
a slick-sleeve private,
than a hollywood star!

I'd give Superior Water, Light and Power located in Superior, WI a pass on their name. The rest of them, not so much.

From the truth in advertising files.

There was a repair shop in Island Park, NY called Last Stop Auto Repair.
Ironically, it was just across the road from the junkyard.

Yeah, well sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

rule of 3

as in use 3 words when one will do

there was a running joke about the Star Trek series having to work on something,
the tool had 3 names, the part had 3 names and the problem sometimes had 3 names
