So my house mouse yesterday made a discovery whilst paying the bills…”How come 2 gallons of paint cost $132.00?”

Yep, there was a new impact drill hidden in there. Busted again.

For that price I would hope that the paint puts its self on the walls. At least you can use the drill to mix the paint.

Yeah, I got spanked. But getting the cash back then repurchasing would definately get me grounded. Good idea though.

You need a drill to stir the paint… just tell her you would have used her beaters from the kitchen but felt better about getting the drill and useing the actuall beater itself rather than her entire machine as you did not want to hurt it…

I just bought $600 of exotic woods from my supplier: L.L. Johnson Lumber and when I got home I purposefully hid the receipt so ‘no one would know.’—-That was really smart

PROBLEM IS, NOW I CAN’T REMEMBER WHERE I PUT IT!!! HMMMMMMMMM, I WONDER WHEN THAT WONDERFUL LADY WILL FIND IT, AS SHE DOES WITH EVERYTHING I STASH AWAY!!

She will probably take a drill to me…..OUCH!

The Boxless Sneak does not work if you leave a receipt laying around. Dadoo, Dadoo…you’re not ready to snatch the pebble from my hand.

Yeah Busted. I bet she’s already got something picked out.
