Now i know i'm losing it

True story,i've been traveling I75 to my job lately cause work is slow in my town, about a 45 minute drive.Well, i'm an admitted bucket hawk, and have been stopping on the highway lately and picking up nice clean buckets that blow outta guys trucks.And there are always a few on the way to and from the job each day, and i put them in the truck and use them each day, and unload them onto the job sometimes, so there is always a different array of buckets in the truck on any given day.Well,i picked one up the other day,and whadda you know it seems to have thinset smears in it.I throw it in the truck, when i get to the job i notice some of my buckets are gone, so i decide to mark them with a little green spray paint.You guessed it, a couple days later i stop and grab a bucket off the road, and shazzam! It has green paint,,,,,,i'd been pickin up my own Damn buckets for a month!

I wish it was the only crazy thing i'd done, but unfortunately awhile back i wore two different shoes...all day...one brown one black...and one was a steel toe,and i never realized until the next day when i couldn't find a matching pair.

Funny though

Let's think about this...Dave's hauling ass down the highway, sees several buckets in different locations, multiple stops in traffic, risks an accident and a ticket from the law, all to get a few free buckets that are worth a few bucks.

I agree, it was worth it!

Hilarious Dave, and do heed Alex's warning on the buckets with the lid. One grout day, needed a clean bucket. There's a bucket out by the driveway with several inches of sand in it. I started hosing it out, and smelled something terrible. Looking at my shoes, I realized there was s@#t all over me. One of the painters had s@#t in the @#$##@ bucket and put sand on it. I was so pissed, I went into the house and asked which one of them did it [ I knew them all } The alcoholic lady painters face got red, and I knew it was her. BE CAREFUL MAN. Dave

Wanna' bet this bucket story now will/won't repeat on some Dr. Phil or Oprah show in the near future..... claimed by some smuck' as new insight on how life has/has not progressed since birth.

Better start takin' that "Road Less Traveled" Dave..... won't be a-runnin' into any old buckets of yer' past life or (at least) TIE YER BUCKETS DOWN! mate!

Hmmmm.... (tie yer' buckets down) another life adage that will gits' used soon and neither this Dave nor that Dave will gits' residuals.

We need to contact Flat, or Vinny.
