I saw a bumper sticker that said "wiring is not a a hobby -- hire a licenced electrician" I thought that was great , does anyone know where I can get one?

They've been around forever.
I can't say I'd know where to get one though. Sorry.

I had a Graybar bumper sticker on a company truck once. It said "Follow me to Graybar" The guys in the shop peeled it back and carefully removed the "R" in Graybar. I drove around for several years with a bumper sticker that read " Follow me to Gaybar"

Don't you just love practical jokes. We had a guy that was out of the closet at Ford. People tormented him something terrible. Some of the guys stuck a huge picture of a naked man on the back of his van, he drove home 35 miles of interstate during rush hour that way..... a joke to some but not to others.

In general practical jokes do more harm than good IMO, some people just can't help themselves.

You probably just laughed it off but I bet you could have done without it.

When I was a pizza delivery boy for Pizza Hut back in the day, one of the guys thought it would be funny to tape a peice of paper on the back of another drivers car that said "I LOVE LITTLE BOYS". The driver had no idea it was there, but the police did. They weren't exactly thrilled, and they went and had a chat with the manager. The guy who did it no longer had a job.

Because every job has their "do it" bumper sticker...

Electricians do it with the lights on.

My friend had this: Archivists make it last longer
Another: Theramin players do it without touching.

Stubbie,
Yes, I actually fell out laughing when it was finally pointed out to me. I did not take it serious at all. I did not think those guys could come up with something so funny and clever.

heavyduty......isn't it? " We will remove your shorts" I got sensored at Mike Holts forum when I added maam at the end and I at the beginning as my signature. They are not very tolerant over there, but sure have great contributors.
