    Re: Sandbagging

    Does that still count as volunteering when your own company is paying you to be there?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Sandbagging

    I was working as an electrician's assistant when the floods of 93 hit. A bunch of steam tunnels in various schools in my hometown flooded. When the water was gone what was left was a nasty muddy mucky mess. SO, being the assitant, they sent me into one end of the 4 foot high tunnel with a fire hose and placed a sewage ejector at the other end. I spent the day blowing the muck out of the tunnel.

    When I got home my mom wouldn't even let me walk on the driveway and hosed me down with the garden hose on the street. The old lady across the street couldn't beleive her eyes I am sure.

    I played a round last week against a guy who said he was an 18. The dude shot 83, and took me for about $50. Now THAT was a sandbagger.
