    For those still following along...

    Just arrived home to find the offender (MIL) driving on my front lawn as she did not want to get out and move the garbage & recycling bins at the end of the driveway. Apparently having all your waste picked up at your home curbside is a major inconvenience. Finding the tire tracks would have been one thing but she actually pulled the stunt in front of me as I was coming up the street. Sprinkler head repair and carpet cleaning have now been added to the agenda and its not even 5pm on Day 1.
    Holy shit.

    Thats why I only recommend clad, either Marvin or Integrity, as todays fast growth wood wicks water and rots way to easily.

    There's only 1 way to install them. Unless you put them in upside down. The window comes primed with the sills attached.
    I believe he was referring to being properly taped flashed etc.., but who knows maybe your MIL's dogs was peeing on the window...

    The only good thing about my divorce is not having to deal with my complete idiot of a mother in law. One of the most socially awkward people I’ve ever met.

    I once accidentally called her Moron instead of Maureen.
    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    That’s the danger in private or silent pet names for people....

    We do business with a guy who’s infamous for an unfortunate decision he made years ago when he tried to blackmail a nationally well known B list celebrity (think Alfonso “Carlton Banks” Ribeiro from Fresh Prince, but not him). He spent time in jail and is putting it all behind him, building a business, and does good work. But we all call him “Carlton Banks” whenever he comes up and I sometimes take a minute to remember his real name. I have the damndest time not slipping up when he calls or visits the office.
    focus.

    Pedestrians on the local college campus who could wait a few seconds for you to drive through (you're the only vehicle) but instead blithely force you to stop and then ever so slowly and casually shuffle across the crosswalk at a sloth's pace.
    Buy the ticket...take the ride.

    Lol. When walking I find it annoying when The motorist does not seize the clear opportunity to just go. I’ll even slow my pace, noting what’s going on at the intersection and there’s always some Nancy Do Right who wants to wait the full 15 seconds for you to even enter the crosswalk, let alone cross it.
    If we're gonna wear uniforms, we should all wear somethin' different!

    The mid-block crosswalks are annoying in downtown SLC. 50-75-100 cars stop in rush hour in both directions for one dude going to his car after work. City should take them out and make people cross at intersections.

    Stepdad's nickname among us siblings is Poopstain. Of course, my mom doesn't know this. There's been many times I've almost let it slip out when talking to my mom.

    Why poopstain, you ask? I had a friend in high school who would refer to certain people as "poopstain". I asked him one day what that meant. He said, "You know when you were a little kid and you took your tighty whities off at the end of the day and you saw a poopstain on them and you're like, aw man!? Well that's how I feel when I see that guy."

    It fit my stepdad perfectly. Not a total asshole, but just kind of an "Aw man! Do I have to hang with that dude!?" kind of guy.

    I believe skidmark is restricted to the toilet bowl.

    KQ--you'll like this one. We were at a house party yesterday, pretty much a mansion they built about 4 years ago, all reclaimed wood and huge amounts of granite, super energy efficient. They also built an enormous barn and a corral. But they decided not to get any horses, so the barn and corral sit empty. The barn does make a nice place to mount their solar panels.

    As I was parking at local Safeway last night (commuter belt town 15 miles from liberal oasis of Seattle) a landscaping crew's pickup and trailer pulled into the two spots next to me.

    Noticed as he got out that the Latino driver was open carrying.

    Was kind of a sad reflection of events of this week.

    Sorry, but we're going to have to lock up brown people that are doing this. It's just not safe. Only white dudes are *really* allowed to open carry.
