    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.

    As long as she puts out the heat, she's welcome at my house.

    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.
