    phone conversations I had to share

    Just now my wife called shes out running around with her mom. They had me on speaker and I was telling them what I had been doing this morning it went something like this:

    Me: not much got a couple tires baking in the oven.
    her mom in the background: hes got what in the oven.
    my wife: something for their trucks

    Me: uproarious laughter.

    I realize this is one of those you had to be there for moments but it was so funny.

    Just thought Id sahre

    I love it when I use the oven or stove top to bake, boil or sauté some random hobby part. My wife always looks at me like I'm nuts.

    "Um, is that safe?"
    "We're about to find out..."

    That works both ways. One time, I couldn't find my favorite glue gun for about a year. My wife denied involvement. Then she sent me down to her arts and crafts room (barf!) for a pair of scissors. This whole area is perilously close to my man area / RCs. Lo and behold, there on her table -- covered in glitter and bits of pink tissue paper! -- was my sacred glue gun. I was livid.

    I've tasted some. It burns real bad and it takes forever to wash it out of your mouth.

    Me: "911 where's your emergency?"
    Them (about half the time): "Well, it's not an emergency but I didn't know who else to call. What do I do..."

    -or-

    on a call back:
    Them: "I didn't call"
    Me: "Your phone did and I'm calling to see if you need police/ambulance/fire."
    Them: "It must have been a butt-dial. I have one of those touch-screen phones..."

    Hundreds of more stories with at least a dozen new ones a day but these are more common than you think.

    If I had a penny for the times I've been called,,, I'm on call 7 days a week,,, But not life threatening....

    Mainly the wife asking what I'm doing.... Um,,, I"m working dear, I have 3 databases I am dealing with and there's a problem with the CNC fabric cutter not wanting to invert the files.... OF coarse she has no idea of what I'm talking about.... loll I wonder if I do sometimes ...

    But, when my office calls I have THE MOST ANNOYING RINGTONE, anyone from work,,,, I have the sound affect of a Submarine doing an emergency dive! Whoop Whoop Whoop!!! THis way I either know to run to the phone or run away from it...

    Makes the process lots easier at least for me it did. You get a little bit of funky smell in da house but hey its totally worth it. I like the baking method better than boiling myself, what about some of you guys??

    Yep same here. I got some acetone and im going to strip the chrome off and dye them green for my boys Digger. That is why I wanted to try the bake method and it worked really well.
