Well, at least they (HD, not Mark) moved up a few digits on Bastard Bob's Bitch Barometer.

My 12v Ridgid lithiom driver developed a delay when you pull the trigger. I had sent in all the reg. papers when I bought it 2+ yrs. ago and was mailed back a laminated card with the lifetime warranty on it. I put it in the proverbial "safe place so I can find it." So, now I can't find it.

I thought that alone would be a deal breaker, though purchased on my HD card, so...

I thought it'd get repaired (for free), or I'd get a recon.

Noooooo! They took it back, wouldn't even let me tell them what's wrong with it, and told me to just go get a new one off the shelf.

Their Lifetime Warranty is real. Awesome.

The "Hate Mark" part. Visited Mark's woodshop yesterday. Everyone here should hate him.

While there, I didn't notice the latest 18v lithium drivers or hammerdrills. So, while at The Despot, I bought a new set of Makita's. I neither needed nor wanted them. I was just sure Mark didn't have them.

Oh, and it's not simply that he has everything (except for the new stuff I bought, I hope), the space is quite generous, well lighted, and super clean. And Joyce is gonna be beatified BEFORE she dies!
That little faggot's got his own Jet planer, that little faggot he's a _______________ (banned in Canada).

Bob, are you sure that trigger delay wasn't built in for your own protection. It could be one of these new fandango tools with it's own brain..."you really want to drive this screw, Bitch? we will delay activation for 2 seconds."

My NEW(well new last Jan.) Ridgid Lithium drill has that delay every so often when I first try to use it. Once I get it working the delay goes away. I suspect the contacts get dirty or similar and the movement cleans them off. I probably should have taken it back when I first noticed the issue. I never did finish sending in all the particulars to get the Lifetime warranty and now the boxes are long gone frown

Do I get a bonus if I hated Mark already?

I'm jealous of both you guys.

But Bob knows what to DO with his tools.

I just keep mine unused so they don't get covered with that nasty, dirty sawdusty stuff.

Plus, Mark has a hard time getting the sawdust out of his beard.
