James and His Curious Tools

Stefanie, James, and I spent the evening at one of our rental properties. Knocked out some painting, and removed baseboards for some tile work we're having done tomorrow. We also removed a couple of toilets (I hate messing with toilets by the way--they're nasty).

I was breaking the caulk seal between the floor and one of the toilets by banging on a putty knife with a crescent wrench (it's an old plumber's trick, but that's for another day). James took the crescent wrench to unbolt the other toilet, and asked what I wanted to use in its stead. I chose the hammer option, and James came back with a f'ing 23 oz. hammer. Twenty-three ounce hammers are not conducive to working in a tight bathroom between tub, shower, and vanity.

I'm going to have to have a sit-down with James about his novelty-size tools.

If you're not comfortable swinging a man's tool you should have just said so. It's okay. But like Josh L. taught us...only a p#$$y would swing anything less.
