They are called "opinions"....not facts.

Big peeve too?...arrogant men who say NO woman could do what they can do. Unless we're talking about getting an erection, followed by the ejaculation of sperm....women can do ANYTHING a man can do. If you are a man and think there is NO woman who can and DOES do what you do, well....you're waving your ignorance like a big ole red flag. Just because you don't KNOW a woman who does what you do, or know OF a woman who does what you do....it doesn't mean that there are NOT women who do what you do. You can bet your sweet hiney that there are probably some women who are actually even BETTER than you are at it.
Are you kidding me? I wouldn't wish that on any woman. We've been in business for over 100 years. I think we do something right!

I realize I could be jumping to conclusions here (not)...but YOU haven't been doing anything for 100 years...and to assume that there are no women who are not doing, or CAN not do what you do, is not only arrogant, but incredibly ignorant as well. One of the biggest mistakes men ever make is in underestimating women.

One last tip. Make sure you take your steroids so you can lift at least 300 pounds! I'll see you in the morning girls!

I'm guessing Midnight Rambling and Daytime Ranting with much ado about nothing where either is concerned.

YOU do not, PERSONALLY lift 300 lbs. You may have chain hoists, fork lifts, and engine lifters (for your rods) or other forms of lifting equipment, but you do NOT, single-handedly, lift 300 lb objects. Oh please. Any woman with a lick of common sense can operate chain hoists, wenches w/ pulleys, cranes.....you name it. OMG Laughable at best.

Correct. It was the hot wire, which caused the line to bypass the switch to the control panel. It was really my own fault. I had to tape and recap the hot. The issue with the wiring in my home is that it's not threaded, like I would expect to see. Black and white are usually one solid, thick wire. So, I have to make sure to tape it securely. When I first put it in I couldn't find my tape. But, I've fixed it since then and the switch is working.

Of course, Hawk! And that light is on the other side of the property compared to where the control panel is (back and forth, back and forth). Although, when I had my contractor over doing my ceiling, they put in my ceiling light and did not turn the power off, which I thought was stupid.

Exactly! Puhlease! As for the comments on women's inferior strength and stature...there are some of us who are not challenged in this area. For instance, I am 5'9", large framed and heavily muscled.....from a LIFETIME of hard physical "man" labor...so god, give me a break! As I've said before... I don't "need" my man for anything .....I WANT my man as my partner/companion/friend.

You don't want ANY part of it, trust me. We'd let you give it a try though. I'd eat my words if by some snowball chance in hell one of you makes it. Never say never, right?
