    I HATE.....HATE stupid new terms like "claps back"....it makes me want to throat-punch the writer. You work at a news agency (I use the terms loosely); you're not a 13yr old in the back of the school bus.

    Yes. The world could use less people that lack personal responsibility so rona for them.

    I would talk to a dent wizard before going to a body shop. One may or may not be able to remove the dent. That route would be better if possible over a respray. Sorry that happened to ya.

    These dent wizards -- are they like Billy Crystal's character in The Princess Bride?



    Where does one find them (if not at the body shops of our land)? Do you look under Dent or Wizard in the Yellow Pages?

    :|

    In all seriousness (well, some seriousness), my father had a set of (quite vintage) body and fender tools for just such actions. I didn't really give serious consideration to keeping them when we helped him downsize, though.

    Just Google Paintless dent removal in your area. You might even find one that can fix it in your driveway. You'd be amazed at what those guys can do.

    That, I surmise, was a Spike Lee movie that didn't fare well with test audiences.

    I don’t watch much “normal” TV (mostly Netflix, Prime, etc), but I happened to have the tv on network tonight. For the love of everything holy, every commercial now is “we’re in this together”, “you got this”, “we’re here for you in these difficult times”, “do your part, social distance”, and on and on and on and....

    I won’t repeat THAT mistake any time soon...

    Is it the wording? What if they said "What's your opinion?" or "All that matters is..."

    I hate it when people say "It is what it is".


    I also hate people who say "...a person who needs no introduction..." and then they **** introduce the **** anyway.

    Exactly! :)
    ... or as a guy who worked for me a long time ago (at two different places -- come to think of it) used to say: "No matter where you go, there you are.
    I also hate people who say "...a person who needs no introduction..." and then they **** introduce the **** anyway.

    I feel sluggish this morning...

    Won't make you feel any better, but I, too, used to get up at 4:45 am for work, every day. Mostly to stay ahead of as much of the AM commute as possible -- but also to have some quiet time at work to actually get some stuff done before someone opened the insanity spigot. :#

    Amusingly, though, even post-retirement, we got up at 4:45 every Tuesday morning, 'cause Mrs. H still goes (went) to the North Short to volunteer for MA Audubon every Tuesday.
    Probably goes without saying that we've been sleeping in on Tuesday mornings for a little while here of late (since Mrs. H got back from Colombia, in fact; late March).

    :p
