Heard a rumor...


If there, ever, was a time, it's now.

Heard at the scrap yard, today, that copper prices are going down the first of the week. Is this a ploy to collect all the copper in the nation? At $1.76 per pound - as SCRAP - It's ALMOST hard to resist the 300 lbs (or, so) in the company rig. You should price pipe, though .... costs "the man" a dollar.
As far as our 75% pennies go - it IS against federal law to "scrap" them. Banks were heard of exchanging pennies for 1.2 cents! How come there is no "cents" button on my keyboard?! Still - at 1.2 "cents", how could you go wrong with that? I wonder if they would exchange my dollars to pennies..? Don't think too long...

For some unknown reason. I can see companies that work with a lot of copper, finding out that they are loosing a lot of their inventory through employee theft. I would also suggest that you get a permit to pack a shot gun or at a minimum a S&W .44 magnum in your work truck. With the price of copper, a robber could make more money by holding up a Plumma work truck than a Brink's Armored Car. At minimum, I would ask for a armed escort to ride shotgun with you to the job site. Have a great eznth plumbing day! Opps, have a good ygxml day anyway.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
