Default Hows this

About 2 months back I posted that I had scored a welder for $50. Well it happened again, same brand and model but this time it was free. A friend rang out of the blue, said it had belonged to his late father - in - law and he had no use for it so did I want it. I'll pick it up after work tomorrow. I gave the last one to my son so I'm extra chuffed about this.

Hi Clive,
Well let me be the first seeing all the boys are probably tucked up in bed.

Its a forum custom here when you get something (good ) for free you get a special award.

Let me be the first, being an Aussie, an ex Boilermaker,Ex Tafe Instructor and Jealous, to say it.

Its a ranking of pillage I understand, the boys call it, so now don't take offense, because none's intended.

You Suck

Cutter will likely chime in latter and make it Official like.

I think pictures are required before a You Suck award can be granted.

Actually to suck, in this regard, I believe pictures are required... or, at least, strongly encouraged....
But I'll throw in a "You Suck" anyway...

However, due to differences in our, mutual but different, use of the English language...
I had to do some searching to find out what "...extra chuffed..." meant.
English-to-American Dictionary
Fairly comical in nature.
It's a fun read will bring back some fond memories for anyone that spent time in the UK, or, at least, with The Queen's English....

Yes we do have "Suckage Standards"

1. No trolling for suckage.
2. Pictures are required.
3. Must be an exceptional valve, free is exceptional.
4. Am I missing anything!!!

Nice score and I'm happy for you too, Clive.
But pictures are an absolute requirement.
Premature congratulations are ok but these guys are just a bit over-eager with all this premature you-suckage.
