    My brand new 3 gallon Igloo cooler was stolen yesterday. It's the yellow with red top model.
    It was the only thing in the bed of the truck that wasn't locked down. I was looking to get a mount for it, oh well.
    I was looking at some prospective work that's out of my area (Boone, NC).
    I saw someone near my truck while I was there and a little voice went off in my head but I was so into this prospective job that I didn't heed the voice.
    I saw a young guy with a crappy 80's model s-10 with a bunch of homeowner junk and ramps in the back.
    Good thing I was just prospecting and not sweating my a$$ off mowing. I would have really needed that cooler.
    Oh well, another stolen item I'll probably never see again, except all the ones in landscapers trucks/trailers. Next one I get, I'm going to scratch or burn my name into it.

    If you get a new one, get a can of paint and make it look ugly and nasty, maybe they will be scared of it lol, maybe even label it poison or something...wait.....dont do that.....some idiot may think its weed killer and steal it for that

    I know a guy that kept borrowing his girl friends Harley Davidson motor bike, she was getting pretty annoyed so she painted it pink, there has been no problems since. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    A contractor I used to work for painted all his tools yellow to indentify them.

    I've seen plenty of contractors with orange, blue, etc. but it takes a brave man to paint them pink. lol
