    Not but 2 seconds ago, I got a delivery from UPS. They were delivering the 8-32 inserts I bought from McMaster-Carr. Anywho, the driver knocks on the door, I answer, and he says "I have an order for Joiner Basses?" He said basses, as in the fish, not basses (pronounced "bases"), as in the musical instrument.

    It's not a big deal or anything, but I got a kick out of it. :smug:
     
  2. I was just talking to my dad a while ago about a new bass amp. I told him about the bassman and he's like... Cool, the bassman 100, like the fish... Good Times...

  5. The UPS guy that picks up at my office almost got into a fight once. To make a long story short, a guy came in the store and the UPS guy made a comment about him getting dresses through UPS a lot (joking.. the guy's wife runs a dress shop) and the guy took MAJOR offense to it and wanted to fight. Most excitement I had at work in a long time.

    Back on topic, I used to subscribe to a newsletter called "Bass Pro Tips" and my mom brought it to me one day and says "Here's your 'Bass (like the fish) Pro Tips' ... I didn't know you liked to go fishing..?" That one cracked me up for a while.
