    That's funny. I used to to kid with my guys that they were trying to build a system for themselves with all the stuff in their pockets:laugh:

    $4.25 in cash and loss change.
    Hunter key (I think this was the main item in pockets? Does it get you into the hunter club?)
    7 ear plugs. (Don't ask me why?)
    Several ends of clipped off zip ties and a scraps of striped wire. Hate to pollute.

    Les...can I borrow $20? Short on beer money.

    You guys had money in your pockets? I'm doin' something wrong here.........

    I rarely keep anything in my pockets. While on the job keys and wallet stay in the truck. Cell phone in pocket and misc. sprinkler parts. I can't stand carrying a lot in my pockets.

    Got no choice about carrying stuff in my pockets - the ex is still around and looking to better her aim.
    Anyone care to take her off my hands - she's pretty stable for the first six months or so. Maybe she'll forget about me then.

    I used to kid my guys that they were trying to build a system with all of the stuff in their backpacks.... until I found out that was what they really were doing..... a few 1800's here, a few dozen fittings there.... repeat 5 days a week and suddenly the profit margin on their weekend side job just got bigger..... until we implemented full computerized inventory control.....and fired all of the crooks :dizzy:
     
  10. If your ex like my ex lives in t EX as then you might want to move to wide open Montana where the better aim always wins.
