According to Ice, they don't hire fat guys either...

right Bob?
That and people with low credit scores.  :tickedoff:
Funny I never had a customer put me on a scale or run my credit when they were freezing or sweating their a** off or a dryer that would not heat.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Grandpa always said "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"  :)
But in this case "F**k em all"  >:( at least I'm still around and round and round and round.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

I went to sears to get a job selling parts for them. They didn't hire me cause I couldn't sell extended warrantys or add ons too good. I had the attitude people wanted a part for their appliance not a sales pitch for soap or a warranty. But after seeing some of the posts about the newer stuff I bet I could now.

That's funny, Bob...my gramps used to say, "Never sweat the petty things, and always pet the sweaty things".

 :) Repair Man, I never let sh*t like that bother me.  ;)
I think that I prove be a better person that way.  :) :)
I live life to the fullest and love helping out who ever needs it.
Maybe I should have a pi*s poor attitude about things, but I feel that God has a way of working thongs out.  O0
As to the original poster "Welcome" and if I can help out, just say the word. ;)
