    Small wood gloat

    I was watching the lumber manager at Lowes moving some lumber to the clearance pile the other night while I was working. I asked about these 2 maple boards (1x8x6) and he said that for months customers have been moving these 2 junk boards out of the way in order to find some good stuff. They were priced at $28.00 each originally. He was going to mark them down to $10.00 each. I told him that I would be happy to take them off his hands for $10.00 for the both of them. He said yes without any question

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    That ugly ol' stuff? I'm surprised you didn't charge him to haul it away.

    Congrats on the score, Bob.

    That raised your hourly wage for that hour didn't it!!!!!! Way to go. Better than someone buying it for a shelf and painting it!
