Papa Johns, Home Depot and a White Board

Posted by Thomas Wed, 10 Aug 2005 00:09:53 +0000

So, as luck would have it the two things that I wanted to do tonight happened be right next to each other. How convienent that Home Depot is right next to a Papa Johns? So, in my lust for a 4×8′ sheet of white board, I went off to Home Depot. Before I left, I measured the Yukon. Over 4′ of cargo space in the width direction. Not quite enough space in the height direction… more on that later. So, I finally tracked down their sheets of this stuff. A 2×4′ sheet would have cost something like $7. The 4×8′ sheet costs something like $11. So, I went with the big sheet. Pondered having them cut it then and there, but figured that I would regret it later. About this time I figured that I would call ahead to PJ, so that I could pay out at HD, pick up my pizza at PJ, and then go home to eat it. Well, they don’t like it if you don’t have a local phone number. The wankers. So, I paid out at HD, drove to PJ, made my order and waited. Read some of the USA Today that was in the store. Oil doesn’t look to good in the near future. Well, bad for me, good for people who own lots of oil. Anyway… oh, and there was this crazy lady that came in, screaming about how the guy was rude on the phone and how she wanted to talk to his manager and all of this. Makes me think that you get more with honey than vinegar… I digress more. So, after 12 minutes, I got my pizza and took it home. Good $13 (or however much pizza). Then End. Oh, I almost forgot. Laid the back seats down, but essentially had to duck the entire drive home. I guess they didn’t figure many people carrying 4×8′ sheets of stuff when they designed it. Ah, fond memories of many a mission trip to Mexico… ::Single tear::

P.S. I’m taking bids (suggestions really) for how best to hang this on the wall without making ginormous holes in the wall. Also remember that I am lacking in the power tool dept… I could buy power tools, but I’d rather buy techie tools…

    umm…you could buy several pounds of that removable foam sticky stuff. you know, you peel this piece of foam on both sides, it’s sticky, and you stick it leaving a little tab on the edge. when you want to remove it, you grab the tab and pull and it stretches the foam so it lets go of both the wall and the object. oh yea, this is exactly what i’m talking about, but it’s a friggin long address:
    so yea, command adhesive or whatnot. that might do it.

    I saw 4 comments and thought to myself “there must be a lot of ways to hang a whiteboard”. But, alas, only Ben.

    You could get some of those hammer-in wall hangers, but those would make some pretty big holes. And I don’t really know what you would mount to them, since you would need a drill to make a hole for the screw to go through your whiteboard. Although you could get a drill for less than the cost of your pizza. I guess I don’t really have any good ideas. (I would just make big holes in the wall and worry about covering them up later.)
