2 Italian guys....one was really old with one eye who apparently couldn't see what he was doing when they were loading it, he kept screaming at the other guy about how he was falling off the ramp. I really thought they were going to destroy it.

At the end of the day, there were no :censored: given, they thought it looked great. I was less than impressed.

when I was Building COGZilla, I was buying tons of pieces parts off ebay....

I bought a complete Ninja head, it was shipped in a big carboard box, filled with crumpled newspaper.... yeah, that worked .... not. wasn't much left of that box when it arrived...it looked like a basketball, with holes...

then, the pristine set of carbs some braniac shipped in a box, with carbs still containing fuel... but he put them in a plastic bag...... full of foam peanuts.... nice mess that was....

No, just some random company, sub contracted from a company out of Guam that is sub contracted by the contracted company in California. So basically if it gets f'd up, I'm in for a lengthy claims process. They also didn't bring enough crates so they had to take loose items, like the bottom half of my recliner that they forgot to put in the crate with the top half. I will be amazed if I ever see my grill again.

NASCAR. Mary Jane Tinklepants has more nads than NASCAR. Sniffle sniffle, the track is wet we can't race.  :'(  The cars are too fast. Someone might get hurt.  :'(  No Confederate flags. Someone might get offended.  :'( PUHLEEZE! If they are scared, get out of the business. You're paid BIG $ to put on a show. Get in the daggum car and drive! So it's wet, DRIVE! Maybe their high heels slip if the pedals are wet? Afraid of water splashing on their skirts? Whatever..

People in front of me at stop lights who start off then stop when the other lane get a green arrow thinking they should go, then 5 seconds later when they do get the green light, because they are texting, they just sit there not paying attention until I have to blow my horn, this has been happening with increased regularity over the past year or so. I know this is just distracted driving due to cell phone and texting, but now its another sub-problem I've noticed.

Hmmmmm. Looks like they spent all their transportation efforts making the trains run on time and there is nothing left over for packing....

 ::)

Really, the best of luck with the move but I have  to say, that does not look promising from the photo.

  the thing that gets me irritated is the arrogant desk clerks at "some" hotel chains ( noticed this past holiday wknd ) in regards to the room pricing. They would rather leave the room empty than to discount the room to "normal" room rates!  (Yes, I'm aware that they don't make the rates, but they could have a little better attitude). 
 Comfort Inn can K.M.A. if they think I'm going to pay $175 a nite for a room that's "maybe" worth $70!!! >:(  Then to top it off, they seemed a bit offended when I told them I'd sleep in the car before paying their rates & walked out of their office.
 Left Jamestown, N.Y. & drove back into Pa. about 20 miles away where we found a nice clean comfortable room for the aforementioned $70 too!  To top it off, the receptionist couldn't have been nicer; very cordial & made you feel welcome & that you were a valuable guest! ;D

Someone has been landscaping in the neighborhood and the idiot contractors dropped pebbles (not one of the Flintstones) all over the route I take to get out of the subdivision.   :censored: ing  :censored: .

I know all security measures can be defeated, all locks can be picked, all defenses can be breached. With all the things manufacturers are being forced to put into new cars to deal with idiots that text and talk while driving, isn't there a device that can be installed in every car that will jam or defeat cell phone signals or devices, or render them useless for the duration. I know, in 2 weeks, somebody would have a patch to go around it. But can't they look into that angle, instead of accepting defeat going on the offensive and coming up with things like that? I'm sure they have. Just thinking out loud.

Cell phones allow people to call 911, and passengers can safely talk on the phone while the driver is operating the car. They just can't block all cell traffic.
