We went out for New Years Eve, heading for a party, and stopped at a convenience store/gas station so I could get coffee. I walked back out and got back in the car, and she noticed me staring at something. “Are you checking those 2 girls out?” I replied,” No, I did that inside, I’m looking at that outlet there” , Grabbed my camera, and snapped a picture.

She’s laughing at me, so I was explaining this site to her. Anyway, the party wasn’t happening, so we went to a diner for a late meal. When we left, I looked up, and lo and behold….

Grab camera, snap another picture. Can I show a girl a night out or what?

John, I've got a similar affliction when I go to the movies (which is now almost never.)

I drive my dates (again, almost never, lol) and friends crazy, as I go ballastic if the projection/sound isn't perfect. Very frustrating to sit when I know I can fix the problem!!

That's why I have a home theatre system with over 2,800 watts of audio power in a 12 x 12 foot living room. [Linked Image]


Stupid should be painful.

John, I've got my wife so she will occasionally catch something and point it out to me [Linked Image] She's even emailed me a pic of a scary Zinsco panel that is in the page of ECN [Linked Image]Talk about a perfect match [Linked Image]

John: I had my new G/F catch me looking at some electrical in her parents laundry room that didn't look right!!

BUSTED, but she laughed as well!

Now I have another small repair to add to my list [Linked Image]

I've gotten complaints from my GF that I've ruined the 'going somewhere special' experience.
She's picked up my primal need to punchlist anyplace that we go.
Woe be to the restaurant that makes us wait for a table...it just gives us longer to find the shabby electrical work,
