Topic tags/keywords: harbor freight humor

The final FINAL attempt arrived in the mail yesterday. I was wondering when it would finally arrive. This latest one is the final attempt not to be confused with the 29,486 final attempts that they’ve sent me thus far. This one is it unless they send me another final attempt next month in which case this month’s final attempt was the final FINAL attempt prior to the actual final attempt that would arrive next month. Got it?

if you would take the required action, maybe they would finally stop.

hahahaha … LOL … I DID take action. I brought home another FREE flashlight and tape measure. And my wife said, “Dear … PLEASE, ... NO MORE FREE FLASHLIGHTS or TAPE MEASURES! You have them all over the house.”

You wouldn’t believe how many HF 18” bar magnets I have, and I have coupons for more.

Uh oh … a NEW ultimatum! This sounds like we’re gettin’ serious now. What happens if everything DOESN’T go? Then what? Do we get what remains for free?

Don’t bother with those “free” batteries….they last about as long as a Congressman’s promises

OK OK OK … I get it. They’re always hammering away at me. I know. I need to HURRY. Free, Free, Free, Free, ... and their marketing emails always seem to convey a sense of urgency. If I DON’T hurry, all this FREE &^%$#@ will be gone, ... of course unless you realize that there will be yet another FREE coupon campaign come first thing Monday morning.

And I don’t know WHY I do this. You’d think I would have learned by now. But I always read the coupon disclaimer. “Cannot be used with any of the following: Inside Track Club membership, Outside Track Club membership, Jenny Craig Weight Loss Membership, Extended Service Plan, gift card, open box item, closed box item, 3 day parking lot sale item, compressors, floor jacks, safes, saw mills, pepper mills,storage cabinets, chests or carts, trailers, trenchers, welders, frying pans, Admiral, Ensign, Petty Officer, Ames, Bauer, Cobra, Rattler, Python, CoverPro, Daytona, Indianapolis, Earthquake, Tremor, Fisher, Hercules, Achilles, Medusa, Icon, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Lynxx, Poulan, Predator (convicted or otherwise), Tailgator, Viking, Vulcan, Zurich, Copenhagen, anything colored red, yellow, blue, orange, green or violet, anything with a dry weight over .00001 oz, anything that smells like rubber tires, anything not nailed down to the shelf, or anything else that is not listed here that should be listed here but isn’t.”

I don’t know about you but I always hold out hope that someday my ship will come in and the FREE coupon will read, “This is it! This is the BIG ONE! EVERY damn thing in the store is free. Yep! You read that correctly. EVERYTHING. NO stupid EXCLUSIONS! Go ahead. Knock yourself out. C’mon in. But hurry, coupon only valid until March 3, 2145.” But, that just doesn’t seem like that’s gonna ever happen. Anybody need a nice HF tape measure? I’ll sell ya’ one, cheap …

Here we go again. Would someone please get me Noah Webster on the phone please … My command of the English lexicon has apparently waned. I guess “EVERYTHING” doesn’t really mean “EVERYTHING”. If everything really meant everything, then everything would have been sold the last time and there’d be nothing left to sell this time. But, happily, I still see and smell loads of stuff in my local HF store. So I guess the last sale flyer that specified “Everything” really didn’t mean EVERYTHING but probably sorta only most of everything, but not EVERYTHING. Now I got it. The saga of the Harbor Freight sale flyers continues … And that’s EVERYTHING I have to say on that topic… unless until the next time when and if there’s more to say …

You must have missed the latest one – the UNBELIEVABLE 25% off sale this coming Easter Weekend, so if you are not involved in your faith, you can go down to HF and save yet another 5% instead of the regular 20%.
Exceptions included, of course.

Personally, I feel sorry for the folks who have to work there on Easter Sunday.
