    SO......My roll-A-way chest is in disaray. Solution: Get some dam organizers for it, so I dont have to search for 35 fucking mins. to find my 6mm 1/4" drive socket, or the like. Off to Sears we (Wife came along) go! We get to Sears, and I start looking at the bullshit drawer organizers they sell. I find my chest on the sales floor, and start matching up what ones would fit right. I find a 3 pack of thin plastic organizers that seem to fit nicely in one drawer. I tell Julie, "I'll try these out, and if I like them, I'll get more...". Off to the register we go. I have this dude ring me up, and he does the whole "is this all for you Sir?" bullshit. "Yes, thank you" I reply. "That will be twenty one eighty five...would you like a bag?" WHOA!!!!!!!!!!! WAIT ONE FUCKING MIN!!!!! TENTY FUCKING BUCKS FOR A BULLSHIT Plastic drawer organizer??? REALLY???? FUCK!......Wife tells me to get it. SO.....I do. I get to thinking about it more, as we're driving home, and I tell her "I bet these fucking things are made in China too...." She tells me not to even check....I do. And guess what?? THEY'RE MADE IN FUCKING CHINA! 20 FUCKING BUCKS FOR PLASTIC MADE IN CHINA DRAWER ORGANIZERS!!!??? HOW THE FUCK HAVE WE GOTTEN TO THE POINT, WHERE ITS MORE COST EFFECTIVE TO FARM OUT A FUCKING DRAW LINER THAT USES 20 CENTS OF PLASTIC TO CHINA!!!!!!!



    AND......If its made in China....WHY IS IT TWENTY FUCKING BUCKS!!???


    That is all....This rant is sponsered by FML. Makers of lifes biggest fucks........and by Toyota....'cause this is TW.....

    Most of the shit I buy is made in USA. Its hard to find, but its out there. Garden hoses, water sprayers, etc. I sure as hell figured for 20 bucks, the fucking things would have at least been made in in Canada.......or Thialand...

    A very dumb person... If you're pushing on a ratchet that hard, you should probably be using a longer handled ratchet or breaker bar.


    And yeah, Harbor Freight. I had the same realization that all the Craftsman stuff was was made in China and feel no need to pay extra for their tools anymore. You cna buy 2 or 3 of the Harbor Freight ones for many tools so I just go that route.

    Fortunately, all my tools are made in China, 'cept my hand dolly, which is made in Vietnam. I dont see myslef needing tools for a long time.

    You could have gotten the message across a lot better if you'd used a few f-bombs. Maybe next time?
