cjdaves bank therory on wheeling
cjdave likes to post about how sometimes you make deposits into the bank (help folks out) and sometimes you make withdrawls (get helped).
I have been making a lot of withdrawls and my credit must be good because I feel like I'm way in debt to the great wheeling bank.
last weekend I welded on 3 different rigs, gave away my spare serpantine belt, donated a u-joint, and lent out lotsa tools. I got all the tools back. the guy that I had to weld his u-joints in; laying in copperhead infested rocks; still owes me a case of beer, but the others I refused payment from... not only do I like to help, but I really feel as though I owe it to people that need help.. not something dumb like an exhaust hanger, but things that would have kept guys from getting home.
a few more trips like that and in 10 years I might be even with the house.
