Would a Bubba Steal a Tool?
 
I loaned a bucket of tools to a friend. First mistake I know. It came back intact for the most part but someone pillaged all for a very specialized thing. I will have to scour the internet to find a new one since it is certainly not something a box store or even a hardware store will carry. It is not an especially expensive tool. It was just there when I needed it every 10 years or whatever.

I feel violated. I might steal a Bubbas wife, kids, non-work vehicle, dog, cat, boat and the stuffed fish he said he caught. I would never take tools of his trade.

That's "Bad Form"!
(Stealing or borrowing "forever", someones tools)!
I might, "alleviate" an "Armored Vehicle"; or a "Financial Institution" from
"excessive weight"!
Not personal things! (especially, tools!)!!! :)
I had it done to me!!!

(Over the years, I've loaned out so many tools - who knows where they are!)

Durn right! A wife? What's that? And expensive headache you can never please.
Kids? Fun for a few years, but then they grow up to hate you and only seem to write home if they need money.
Non-work vehicle? You really don't want it, and he doesn't care anyway.
Cat? Uggh! Pretty sure they were only created to give dogs something to chase.
A boat? A big hole in the water into which to dump money.
The stuffed fish? Probably the lie you always suspected it was.

But a dog! A dog... :brows: what can I say? A true piece of a man's own heart with fur and a wagging tail. Is there anything more special on the face of the Earth? So priceless that God gave them all the letters of His own name.

ask you friend if he has such a tool and if you can borrow it .. problem solved..you now have tool back...keep it...

I think after Bubba carefully set it aside, and the dog took off with it and left it the "alter of the fish". Then the wife found it and tossed it, but the kid was too busy messing with the broken Mustang to take the trash out this week, so he just tossed it in the boat.

Then again, perhaps you make a good point :(

Yes, you definitely got it right

Seriously Sdsester.. Why not just say in a non confrontational tone, with a big smile on your face, (after you show up unannounced)

"Hey pal o mine. You accidentally forgot to put that tool back in the bucket. Unless you still need it. But since I'm desperate for it today you can use again when I'm finished."
Then of course you're never finished or you lose it.

I broke my back from a fall at work 9 years ago. I went to the hospital for 3 months (ben in a wheelchair every since). But when I finally re-connected with members of my crew, my "friends", nobody seems to know where all my carpentry/power tools went. I guess somebody decided I couldn't use them anymore anyways so lets take them all. Are they any less of a chump?

creeper 11-29-2011 07:47 AM

Thats absolutely tragic ...I'm so sorry for your rotten luck ...on both counts

Now that really takes a sorry low life to do something like that, I really hate that for you.
