I've been teased about my organization by another member. Just a left-over habit from jobsites & the shop, everything gets picked-up at the end of the day (including empties). I hate working in a cluttered area.
Unfortunately, anything of yours at a job site you don't pick up when not in use might get "picked up" by someone else.

This also applies to "work days" organized by churches or other non-profit organizations. Team leaders need to make volunteers understand that the tools tradesmen bring to a site are their income. Helping yourself to an unlocked toolbox to find the tool you need with out permission, and then leaving the tools scattered around when you are done is NOT acceptable.

Smitty, you forgot to paint all of the stuff with a reflective paint on top... Do they make Tin-Foil leaf?... I mean, if your going the route of the TF hat, might as well put it on everything...

Re: Smitty's Bus

Whats your overall height gonna be when its all said and done? I know your raising 18", but are you putting a roof ac on? Just wondering what kind of clearance your gonna have? Looks incredible. Your doing ten times more than me, and your catching up to my conversion already....and I had a head start. Talk about the tortoise and the hare.
