Topic tags/keywords: gloat

So, today to start was the ‘DeWalt Demo Day” at home depot (in my area) and I had planned ahead to go to it. There was a deal going on where if you buy any 18V power tool you either get one free or get 2 batteries free. I didn’t happen to have enough for drill number 11 in my collection so I had just bought what was cheapest which was the little 18V vacuum which ran me $160. But $160 for the vacuum and 2 batteries I can’t complain. While I was there they were throwing a contest of who could drive 5 3” screws into a 4×4 the quickest takes home a $90 DeWalt tool belt. I was the first to start the contest and I set the bar for the rest of the day with 9.6 seconds. So I walked home with the tool belt :) . On top of that I was talking to the DeWalt rep about how yellow my shop is, so she threw some swag my way along with a brand new 2’x5’ DeWalt banner for my shop :) . Man was today ever a good day! ...Just sayin’

This is a pic of me and the rep just as she handed me the screws to kick off the contest …

congrats on the deal Mark and the win of course. I am confused you said the picture was you and the sales rep I only see you :). I’m pretty sure the rep would have added some picture quality here :))
