    Having the plow fill the end of the driveway minutes after you just came in from shovelling the driveway.

    I’ve seen them, waiting, just down the street, waiting until I finish shoveling.

    Really, I’ve seen them, I know they wait for me to finish. Then they fill the end of the driveway in.

    I think they do this no matter where you live in Ontario. I head right back out and spread it on the street. Most in my neighbourhood do this.

    lol i never do this, i just put it on the lawn but there is a guy in my neighbourhood that takes his plow and plows everything from his driveway to the otherside of the street and crushes the fence to the 401 lol.

    Where is the grass Mark? Funny all the different plants in different parts of the country.
    That deck doesn’t look like it was built by creative-redwood-designs.com .

    @roninohio

    Someone before me covered almost the whole lot with rocks. I was told they use to park a RV in the back, so there is sort of a circular road around the house. Some grass does grow between the rocks though.

    Certainly are not my decks and unfortunately for me, not that well built and I hate painted decks. There is a pergola over this deck that I will probably have to replace next spring.

    I have a deck at my house that someone built before I got here. It is not built to my standards but not bad enough to redo yet.
    Seems there is always something to do when you own a home.

    when your told to get all the tools on site brought back to the shop at the end of the day and your done doing the exterior post cladding and cedar railing system in about 4 1/2 hrs and the guy working inside is taking 1.5 hrs longer to install about 7 short pcs of baseboard and 1/4 round which should only take about 2 hrs so your stuck waiting for him to finish up

    also when your parked getting ready to leave site.. parked in front of a driveway entrance and no ones behind you.. go to back up to pull out and some crazy old lady decides shes going to pull up right behind you … shes now blockign the driveway of someone and you dont notice her…. very close call i didnt back into her

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    That is definitely something that I don’t miss at all.

    Go to the Federal building to get tax forms and they have none. One must now have them sent to your house.

    I actually did that one time in a similar situation. Some jackass parked directly behind me where no one should park. I did the courtesy of going door to door and asking who’s car it was. Nobody took ownership. I backed into it and pushed it out of my way denting to crap the little nuissance putt-putt car in the way. Owner came out of store startled and semi-frantic. I just looked over and gave him the glance of “you should have listened to my friendly request when I came asking instead of ignoring me” and drove off. Can’t say I ever felt bad about that even though I would never dare doing it now decades later.

    Then on top of it you get some jack*** that pee’s in the trench or mud.

    yah now adays you’d probably be on video and get done for leaving the scene of an accident. although it wasn’t much of an accident more of a deliberate push heh.

    Can’t you download tax forms online nowadays? Maybe you’re looking for something really specific, in which case I don’t know. You can definitely get the 1040 stuff online.

    All pre-sliced bagels are like that. Guess they don’t want them to slide around in the bag.

    I am tired of people not communicating effectively. I think that cell phones have actually made things worse. How busy can you be, that you can’t respond to a text on 2 consecutive days? Not just one person either, but about 1/3 of the people that I deal with it seems.

    If not, I use my Bosch CCS180BL18 V 6-1/2 In. Circular Saw to make sure they are cut perfect 😉

    With a nice high tooth count laminate and siding blade?

    Is a bagel rip or crosscut?
