I got fired from my job. And given the economy i couldnt bring myself to tell my family what had happened. So i decided i wouldnt say anything id just get a new job. So i went home after sitting in my car for the length of my shift. Unfortunately i had a "shift" the next morning as well. So i decided i would go to Lowes and hide out for 4 hours. I started off just wandering around looking at turkey fryers and grills. Then i moved to axes and things got boring fast. I walked by a 5 gal circular style cooler. I remembered seeing a DIY mash tun involving this type of cooler. So in my boredom and took it over to plumbing, removing the valves along the way. I got to plumbing and spent about 2 hours building different mash tun valve set ups. I was removing valves from bags. Combining female/male bits even going so far as to use adhesives rendering my creations unsalvagable to other customers. I had a few employes ask me if i needed help but i was in the zone so they left me. I completed this amazing mash tun and added up the cost. It was around 45 dollars. Not bad but i didnt want to buy it at all it was just an experiment. And so i walked off. Leaving a cooler missing the spigot and about 50 dollars worth of plumbing supplies combined into various models for use, one setup now forever joined with the cooler, struwn about the aisle. Looking back i viewed a young employee staring down at it motionless. I left the store. Drove home. And my family about my fictional day at work.

I think maybe we have a little insight into why you were fired.

Maybe you should just tell them. Before you get evicted/foreclosed on.

Here I thought my contempt for other customers peaked at putting various fittings back into the wrong bins. Maybe you should spend your imaginary shift filling out applications.
You have to be a troll.

And what's worse, you almost sound proud. Not cool.

What store? Maybe some other folks in the providence area can come and just spend a day combining some of your liquors together in interesting ways.
