        Just to clarify, this is over a period of time and not recently.

        I was just curious who else had been bit.

        Stealing is bad enough, but when you hit a man's livelihood, you crossed a second line.

        Stealing my stereo isn't the same as stealing my tools.

          I too have no time for certain kinds of vermon that appear to be human but a thief is the lowest of the low. Even a bottom feeder looks down on a thief.

          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

            I can't top either of those lists but I still have one that tees me off every time I think about it:

            It was my Bosch laminate trimmer kit and the bits that were in the case. Problem was it wasn't just laminate trimming bits that I had in the case but about $350 worth of other router bits that I had thrown in the day before to take to a job. Why did I do that
