    Why is it "aren't I" instead of "amn't I"?

    I used to say "amn't I " when I was a kid, but some autocratic English teacher drummed it out of me.

    Except for the schizophrenic, "aren't I" makes no sense.

    Took me about a year of stalking Lowes to find the top chest for about $80 off. Had to settle for color mismatch though, so not exactly winning full cred at the Dental convention this spring.

    What's the deal with random forum messages being sent from the Guyonabuffalo account? How does that even happen?

    Re tool chests, I'd take a close look at other brands as well, especially the higher end ones from Harbor Freight (US General, I think). Craftsman isn't what it used to be, and a lot of their stuff now is more price point than quality oriented. I'd prioritize good ball bearing slides and latching drawers over brand name.

    With that said, I'm still using a Craftsman setup that I got about 15 years ago, despite the top box now being a bit more parallelogram than rectangle through no fault of it's own (any toolbox that can get dumped over on top of a roller and middle box and not get bent is either way overbuilt or made of unobtanium). I'm pretty sure the nicer stuff from US General is better than what I've got, but mine works well enough that I'm not about to replace it.

    Agree. And the last craftsman top box I bought is a parallelogram as well.

    Two of my better CL finds were mid-tier Snap-on tool carts a little larger than the black Craftsman above. Not sure what covfefe did to the tool storage market but they were less than half price, or probably close to full retail of a store brand. Very solid. US made.

    depending on the product you may pay a premium not to have a craftsman logo, which was certainly true for other products

    What's with the calls that says my business (I don't have one) is entitled to some govt benefit which I believe just ended so now the calls about a tax break I qualify for. Interesting that these are ive poeple with American accents not robo callers . Meanwhile the extended warranty offers vanished.. And the spam filter on my phone misses a lot of them.
