i said it before, and i still love these guys because...

So there i was, in the middle of nowhere. small town usa, in a car dealership's (a customer of mine) parts department. barely making their bills, family owned for 80 years. i'm looking for something when all of the sudden this giant air compressor (that i managed to not notice or care about) kicks on and nearly gives me a heart attack. I walk over, clear the grime off the name plate and read Ingersoll-Rand. I ask my customer about it, and he goes into a 45 min story about their decision to buy that way back when his grandpa was still running things. Grandpa said to spend a few more bucks, because it will last longer. Grandpa was right. Walking out of there feeling pretty good about things, i asked him if he knew that his schlage door handles were also IR. He smirked and said "figures. the door handles are orignal, too."
