Maybe he's a beer taster for a brewing company, and that's why he NEVER makes any sense.

What he said was that he works 7 days a week now so he's not sure how he's going to find the time to get his lawns done once the grass starts growing. But he did put lights on his mower and fabricate a headlamp so he'll be able to work in the dark. And the dealer won't take his calls, so he's going there Monday to talk to him. He still doesn't know what his cost will be for the 580. All the receptionist can tell him is the retail price, but the dealer promised it to him at cost. If the dealer won't honor the verbal agreement to provide the blower at cost, he'll just order one online.

Understood?

Yeah, well I worked in offices full of engineers for 15 years. It always amazed me that they could design complex structures and systems yet could barely write their names. BTW, that's why engineers have stamps...so they don't have to...

Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price $579.95 + 10% tax = $638.00
Pantano Price $509.95 Free Shipping = differents $128 I have the money but I don't think I can bite my tongue hard enough to pay for it at the dealer.

I was an engineering technician, we are the ones that make them LOOK brilliant, the most ignorant ones are the smartest ones, always amazed me too. They could design a damn car but hadn't a clue about how to change a flat tire, guess that's why they designed the run flat tire LOL!
