Talk about a bad day.

Henry oversleeps so I have to cover his first call.

When he gets to his van the window is busted out and the GPS is gone. Didn't steal anything else thank goodness. My first question to him was "Is the RainMaster still there?"

I'm totally distracted at this point going to what would have been my 8am appt that I'm an hour late for and a cop steps out onto the road in front of me points at me and points at the side of the road. I'm hit with a ticket for going 46 in a 30mph construction zone. He does give me a break and says he won't mark the construction zone part which would double the fine.

I lost 1 about a month ago. Was pissed the servicwe guy didnt lock the truck , but in all reality I suppose it saved me a busted window. What do these things sell for hot ? $40 , Losers destroying peoples property for $40. Weird everything I have had stolen from me happened after I had to put down the rottie.

Off topic:

I had a buddy in college that had a Jeep Wrangler that was getting broken into on a weekly basis. Well in the summer he decided to put his 4' aligator or croc whatever it was inside the jeep at night. No joke. The gator/croc died that summer, a rat killed it. Or so he said.

Just happened to me in NJ. I was only working less than 100 feet from the truck. They walked by on the sidewalk, smashed the window and took the GPS

Just remember, they are reputed to have invented the traffic circle, so don't get them mad. :)

They also seem to have invented the OVAL drum for their blacktop rollers.

They did give us the Jersey Barrier, which has probably saved more lives than the circles took.

Not to mention deep-fried hot dogs, for which they try to shift the blame, by calling them Texas Wieners.

I also had my GPS and other stuff stolen from my truck. I was working in a backyard and someone was in the front yard cleaning out my truck...
Long story short, the guy was caught and still is at the local jail on a $75,000 bond.

Amazing how brazen some of these guys are. I'm convinced some of those box lawn maintenance trucks are fronts for quick thievery. I also got nailed while working in the backyard. Didn't notice my stuff was missing til the next job when I started looking for my RM remote. Lost remote, 521, cordless hammer drill and some other stuff.

These are considered property crimes and carry almost no penalty. Typicaly about the same sentance as a kid getting caught with a joint. This needs to change.

I think $5K grand larceny gets you above the public nuisance level.

After my second Milwaukee Sawzall walked away, I stopped buying that brand. Those shiny red cases just seem too tempting.

Peter, did you lose the remote 521 and drill this week, or was that another occasion?

Another occasion. Several years ago.

Speaking of hot dog's and buttzville, there's a great hot dog place in that town name hot dog jonny's. i was actually in the area yesterday for a wedding. it was in Johnsonburg/ Allamuchy, anyone is familiar.

personally, i'm born and raised in new jersey and i love the state. aside from the cost of living, i think it has a whole lot to offer. most of the people who knock have only driven though on the turnpike or flown into newark airport, both not offer the best of views. but you have the beach, casinos, camping, golf, etc.

New Jersey rules.

The view from the plane windows when the plane is landing/taking off at Newark airport does look like one of the inner circles of hell. It does improve from there.

Seems like Hot Dog Johnny's is more enjoyed for the setting than the dogs. I prefer Rutt's Hut myself.http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/8209/dogandrings2tn0.jpg
