If it has tits, tires or propellers, it's bound to give you trouble at some point!

Gino did you ever think that the reason that your insurance company wants to drop you has nothing to do with the motors but your luck

When the tuck hit the pier and stopped sliding I jumped on to the dock and ran to the truck. I guy in an F350 said he would pull me out. I went into the water to go into the side compartment that had my tow strap. The compartment was underwater and waves were breaking on the bed of the truck. I'm trying to open the door of the compartment and here comes the guy that came with me, walking back from the bathroom. He says to me(dead seriously): "Gino, you really shouldn't pull the truck in the water that far, it's not good for it."

I was just turned down for life insurance. They say because of the Defribulator, I think someone at the insurance co. reads OSO.

LOL

That is too funny.

Gino, sorry to laugh, but man have you had some bad luck.

Look at the bright side, "IT MUST GET BETTER".

A customer of mine ran himself over with his own tractor last year. He jumped down to open a gate and didn't get the brake set. It started to roll and he tried to jump on before it crashed the gate. He got caught and pulled under. They say it took several hours for him to die and there were signs of him trying to free himself.

Most times, it's best to let whatever it is just go on about its way. Stuff can always be replaced.
