So, today I tell my boss who is about to deliver a customer(beverage distributor) his new 4500 truck why dont you tell him that since we gave him such a smoking deal on the truck see if he can give me a smoking deal on some corny kegs they are taking out of circulation.

Ended up i had to go with him.

As we are leaving i say to the owner "hey, since we gave you a smoking deal on the truck can you make me a smoking deal on some of those kegs you are taking out of service"

He says, "ohh, we dont carry that kind of product"

i say, "no, no, not beer keg, the 5 gallons corny keg, you know, the premix soda tanks"

He says, " ahhhh, how many are you looking for?"

"i dont know, may 1 or 2" i said thinking he was going to tell me 20 or 30 per keg.

We walk behind the building and he says " here take these 2, no charge, is that enough?"

I say, "heck yeah, wow, i really appreciate this"

Hey says. "here, how about 4"

me," wow, really!? holy cow thank you so much"

him, "could you use eight?"

I fought the urge to poop myself in front of him and say "oh yeah, i would really appreciate that."




All were not full, but were holding pressure when i got home with them tonight.
SHAZAAM! Going to the hardware store tomorrow to find the o-rings.


What a great day


SCORE!!!!

You should order the orings from Mcmaster. Dirt cheap and you'll have enough of the poppet and dip tube/gas tube ones to last you a long time (100 per pack).

Good thing you fought that urge. It's hard enough to walk while carrying a bunch of cornies.
