So I had to pull my pistol on a guy today. . .

 

Three days ago, I had a guy try to jump in my work truck as soon as I got in.  I yelled at him and he quickly ran off.  Today, I was at a food joint (I had just dropped Gavin off at his mom's), when as soon as I hopped back into my car, a guy came up with one hand behind his back and the other on my door handle trying to hop inside.  I asked WTF he wanted and he just kept trying to get in.  I pointed something at him and he threw his hands up and walked away and got into a black Jeep. 

I was lucky both times as both vehicles are old, so they only unlock one door at a time.  I know some others unlock them all at once or with two clicks on the fob. 

 

Parents, please be extra cautious and everyone be aware of your surroundings at ALL times!

They are trying to out more restrictions here in MN now too.

 

I'm glad you're safe but sad it got to that level.

The guy who hired me is quitting.  He is just starting his second competition for fitness phisique so I think he is going down that path....

 

Anyway, job opening! Woohoo!   Guess who has 2 thumbs and emailed the VP immediately? 

... the VP who called me to offer me the department I have now after 8 days and an industry reps "good word".  I just hope I went agressive enougn.

"Before I tell you why I'm perfect for th manager position, let me thank you...."

 

I also dropped that I added $600 in juice to a $1100 sale and trained the team here my technique.

 

Wish me luck you beautiful bastards!

She sure is pretty. The paint just a real eye catcher. 

I am going to wrap the calipers in a very similar blue vinyl and then top it with ceramic, so I hope they pop also.

Those machines sure have come a long way. I loved my LT500 back in the late 80's.
