Walk into Joplin Fire Protection this morning at 8:05am...
#1 - There is a serious grandma looking person working the counter. Like, I expected an apple pie cooling on the window sill. How can you be mad at a grandma?
#2 - I tell her I'm there to get my tank, which has been there for 4 weeks. She gets up, and totters off towards the back of house.
#3 - She brings me my tank. Passed hydrotest. New label. The epoxy that covers it looks like it was applied by a retarded sloth.
My OCD ain't gonna let that fly, gonna need to get some wet-dry sandpaper and smooth it down.
#4 - Minor channel-lok bites on my regulator - ehh, ok.
#5 - My quick-connect fill nipple cover has magically changed colors. It was black, it's now stainless.
#6 - She rings me up. $19.75. How can I hate with THAT?
So I smiled, and walked out of there. That pricing... damn.
