Whatever happened to the good old days of just securing your equipment. Do you all leave your front door unlocked when no one is at home?

Interpretation of "Good 'Ol Days" doesn't add up. Those were the time we didn't have to lock it all up. Besides, a good pair of bolt cutters & security is breeched. We're going after the source with our poisoned bait. A long lasting impression will do more good than the strongest lock. Step in a fire ant mound once & you wont do it again.

One of my men ended up with one on the wire coat hangers stuck through the back of his Achilles tendon . That's what coat hangers can do.

Back to the original post, I prefer humiliation, to actual damage. I use a urine/gas mixture, in my steal can, as long as I don't eat too much asparagus, or beets, urine looks just the same color as gas!

Thought I would share this with you all. Last week I met up with a budy for lunch and had my truck parked beside the pizza joint. We watched as two teens looked in my bed then looked around. They took 2 of the 4 five gallon red fuel cans and ftarted filling their older(mid 90's) maxima. My body was about to run out side and kick their *****, but I stopped him. The fuel was diesel, I didn't have my transfer tank or yellow fuel jugs with me so I just used the red cans. They ended up taking off after they got about 9-10 gallons, they got scared off when another guy left the resteraunt, I assume they thought it was his truck. Watching them steal $45-50 worth of diesel from me was worth knowing that their repair bill will be more than the cars worth.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!

i was doing work in bankhead atlanta (not a good part of town to say the least). The highschool let out and before I knew what happened a group of kids walked by my truck and snagged my hedge trimmers out of the back and started running away. I had no option but to just sit in traffic and watch as they ran. I wasnt about to leave everything else up for the taking.
Where is that one tool, that I left... At the one job.... Or maybe the other? Where am I? Whose truck is this?
