Are you new around these parts? Welcome pardner! The local sheriff doesn't take kindly to those that cause trouble. 🙂

If you're a local, then you know all the good stuff happens when you use the search engine at AsktheBuilder.com. CLICK HERE to see it and a dorky video of me.

I wanted to just share a disturbing trend I'm experiencing. I wonder if you're seeing it too.

Yesterday morning, I had a new subscriber yell at me at 5:30 am ET because he had to read a column to get the answer to his question.

He was so busy, or stressed out, or ???? that he vented on me because I didn't drop what I was doing and do exactly what he wanted.

It also happened two days ago when a woman asked me if I had a detailed video that would help her do a job. I simply said, "No." and then went on to explain why I didn't have the extremely long and costly video.

She answered back that I was rude.

I'm not looking for your sympathy or empathy. I'm just asking that we might consider being nicer to one another. Our culture seems to be going down the toilet and people seem to be less patient and more demanding.

This is not good in my opinion.

That's enough for a Friday.

I pulled a muscle in my left shoulder and the two middle fingers on my left hand are giving me trouble. The less I type the better.

I'll be back with more new and revised columns for you soon.

I also recorded a new product podcast yesterday about some revolutionary new IRWIN vise-grip pliers. You'll absolutely want to hear that. I hope to have it ready for you next week.
