    Fired a gentlemen last spring when I discovered him in the Port-o-Let huffing from a can of glue.

    Fired another gentleman last summer for doing the same with purple primer.

    Anyone else encounter this?

    I HATE the smell of primer, the smell of glue reminds me of what I do for a living - what is up with this generation? Isn't aerosol paint, model glue, and whipped cream cans good enough for them?:laugh:

    Kids are now sniffing the cans of air used to clean key boards and other electronics. It has killed several.

    I bought a can of this stuff at walmart to clean my keyboard and they actually carded me. Seems like a bit much for a keyboard cleaner.

    the gold paint always packs the extra buzz.

    About the most miserable perps I ever saw on a C.O.P.S. show were paint huffers.
