They sold the misses bathroom sinks that don't fit. Now I have to drive 70 miles to exchange them. Whats worse, wife wants to go to make sure I get the right ones. She gets back in Lowes I sunk. Why don't stores only carry one item. Wouldn't it be nice to go to a sink store, get a sink without having to worry about ending up with more stuff which means more projects.

I was tonight? My wife wants me to build a receptionist cove for her front office. Plus I have to move a pipe that is hindering the contractors,needed a few couplings. Then there is the light to go in the copier room. All I really wanted to be was a machinist. Sigh!!!

Don't ever believe that men rule the business world. Women conspire to create this havoc to keep us under their thumbs. If you want to see an idea catch on, suggest that lowe's only carry one hammer,, them wimmens will jump on that in a heartbeat... more money for sinks,(grin)

it is this way allover now. Bought a new car, book says to wax it every month. Hard to believe huh?. Went to the auto store, never seen such an array of waxes and cleaners and polishes. Went to the Meguires web site, they alone make about 6 different products that generally do the same thing. The point is, we are being buried up to our necks in as simple a thing as a car wax. O yes, and they all are expensive now.

'Nother interesting anecdote; youngest daughter wanted a pedistal sink in her new bathroom..... why? I don't know....went out and bought herself one....probably from Wally World.....thought I was fairly adept at plumbing....but.... this puppy was not made to "mount" anywhere!! the metal clip that is supposed to hold the sink to the wall and keep things in place was a joke.. barely three inches wide....the top of the pedistal was about five inches across in a "u" shape, with no way of securing it to the bottom of the sink!! The only way we could keep the sink from tipping sidways when SLIGHT hand pressure was put on one side or the other, was to mount a small shelf with the wooden supports on either side of the back of the sink to hold it in place, and keep it from tipping. Looks realy great......but, why does a person have to jury rig a brand new article??? Just a rant, have a gooder, R.E.L.
