Small edit... I realized I left out the word "family" by accident. It was me and my family that went shopping on
the day I decided to try and hulk smash the bottom of the CEMENT stairs at that garage. haha

Ha another crazy WTF story from me

Back in June this year I was invited to my uni friend's secret 21st B day which was organised by his girlfriend! We had such an awesome time and I got very tipsy, but not too badly as I was able to walk properly and so on! When the party finished, I was offered to stay at my friend's girlfriend's parents flat. I slept in the spare room and my friend was probably going back from the bathroom and then he went into my bed aside me  Grin Cheesy and I admit he squished me a little. Fast forward to the break of dawn, his girlfriend woke up and saw us two sleeping together. She said "OMG why you sleeping with Peter?"

Ladies and Gentlemen, that is why... I don't drink. hahaha  Grin

Going to the hospital or any medical facility gets me really scared/anxious  Shocked because well of the invasive treatments such as operations/surgery and needles from injections and so on whatever the nurses handle with. I also hate the smell of antiseptic/TCP in the facilities because I find it aggravates my medical phobias, gives you sensation you're unwell (when visiting for non medical related needs) My dad can watch medical drama and I can only watch like small fragments, but when it comes to the scenes of ICU/surgery room etc then it gets too much!  Sad

Last year, I thought it would be a good idea to participate in a jalapeno eating contest on Cinco de Mayo.  The pain that I dealt with was not worth coming in second place and only winning bragging rights.  I ate 3 whole jalapeno peppers in one minute.

My mouth was on fire.  It was as if my big ol' 1000 watt halogen bulb was blazing full blast inside my mouth, down my esophagus, and down into my stomach.  Nothing I ate or drank relieved the pain.  My ears rang, my eyes watered, and my nose burnt.  I drank two or three big glasses of sweet tea, and if anything it added fuel to the fire in my mouth.  I ate some creamy caramel flan which helped a little bit and the intense pain finally went away after about an hour.

The worst part came the next day when I went to use the bathroom.  Let's just say those peppers felt the same coming out as they did going in  Lips Sealed

No more jalapenos for me!

I just now saw this post.  If you are still looking, I may have some fixtures like you are seeking. I do not want to sell them, but could "rent" or "barter" for their use.  Most of mine are 8 foot but I have a couple 4x40 four foot ones too.

 could go on and on with this thread Grin

This is just one of many stories I have.  I am about at my wits end with people being nasty at the office.  Just when I thought I had seen it all, I discovered something rather unusual on the counter next to the sink in the bathroom.  There were paper towels strewn across the counter and there was a toilet paper holder next to the sink.  Did someone take a dump in the sink?!  That's what it looked like  Shocked  

One time when I was at one of my favorite restaurants, I had an English waiter.  He was relatively new and was working with another more experienced waiter.  I ordered a sandwich with chips on the side.  When my food arrived, my sandwich came with French fries.  I understood this misunderstanding because the British term for fries is chips.  Chips (such as Pringles) are called crisps.  

When I was living with my friends in the apartment at my college last year we had this random girl come up to our side window, knock, and ask for a girl named Sarah.  This was at 11:00 p.m. so it kind of freaked us out.  The following week, my buddy told me that it happened again while I was away.  Same girl, asking for Sarah and knocking on our window. 

We had a really bad ant problem in our apartment one time.  The ants would crawl in through my roommate's window because our apartment was on the ground floor of the building.  It was really gross, having those ants all over our bedrooms.  I would randomly hear my roommate scream and curse from the next room when they would sneak in.  He set a trap with a cup of water with dish soap, that would make them sink instantly.  I drank a cup of coffee with cream and sugar and left the empty cup on my desk.  The next time I came into my room, there were over 100 ants crawling all over the mug, up the leg of my desk, and across the floor.  I about screamed  Shocked  It was like the Interstate 95 of ants traveling across my room to the sugar residue in my coffee mug.

A coworker whoís been with the company since 1955 (yes heís in his 90ís and still working) just gifted me an old price sheet binder from when he was in sales. Really cool stuff Iím going to scan it to PDF. Does anyone else have old lighting literature and is there a section I can download the file thatís the best for everyone to be able to search and look up stuff like that?

When people go into my room when I'm not home.  I can tell when someone has been in my room if things on the table are moved or if the closet door is ajar.  It bothers me when anyone thinks they can just go into my personal area to do whatever or mess with my stuff.

Season 2, episode 17 of Frasier sums up this scenario.  It is an episode about how Daphne deals with Frasier going into her room while she's away.

Did you just say "I want a price quote for a 1125SXXX 11 luminaire" or did you describe it to them specifically?
I told them slowly every part of the ordering code, and it was near impossible to mess it up.
