    telling a man how bad his wood pile is is like telling him how ugly his wife is....generally a very bad idea.......if ya cant say anything nice, dont say anything at all......

    That is like a woman telling another woman her new boyfriend is fugly..
    or telling her that the designer shoes she just got that she has been saving for 2 months to buy suck.....and you could have gotten them for half the price at TJ Maxx...>>
    major faux pas...

    Pretty wood piles would only matter to me if it magically increased the BTU output.

    My renter helped my cord some wood last week and I guess stacking wood isn't something he can figure out. I don't play Tetris with every piece that I stack, throw it in a stack and get it done to a degree, but he had a ~3ft tall 4ft long stack going and it was about ready to fall over already.

    Wood stacking can be handy. When I got transferred the company bought my house. Three companies appraised it and when the anonymous appraisals were given to me I protested the low one and named the firm that placed each appraisal. I would receive the average of the three. The company HR guy said that I couldn't know which company submitted what. I pointed out that in the pics taken by each company the wood in the rack on the patio was stacked differently for each company's pic. ::-) I got the low one thrown out.

    Oh, I think you would. I bet you can sniff out a fake Prada bag from the other side of the party.

    I'm a big bargain-sniffer. I draw the line at used footwear, however. Maybe a girl could get away with swapping out some open-toe pumps but guys wear shoes till they ain't shoes no more. I've got boots older than my daughter.

    Being the grocery shopper in this joint I love that the bogos to get you in the store are the crap stuff we would pay full price for anyway. Messes up their plan.

    Wife is a Coke-aholic. Gonna have to buy those two liters sometime. Store put them on for bogo and I go in and buy fifty. Checker is amazed.

    Next ad is limit four.

    I've been holding on to my Barracuda jacket for a while now. Don't think it's coming back.

    I must confess. I do covet my neighbor's wood pile.

    I would definitely not tell my neighbor that I don't like the look of his wood. :oops: Since most people stack wood better than I do, I think I would just stay quiet.
