Cement mixers/fun at Thaiwatsado

Postby cooked » Tue Aug 20, 2013 10:55 am

Saw two bunches of cement mixers yesterday, Thaiwatsado, ฿9500 and ฿12500. Looked identical at first glance. I was told that the more expensive one had legs so you can raise it to a usable height. Ok, I'll take that one. paid for and loaded. mmm... where are the legs? Not here yet, still in China. I had a hell of a job getting my money back and paying for the cheaper one.. I nearly had a heart attack laughing. I put them on a couple of pallets, no problem.
I just had to tell somebody about this.

Are you sure you didn't buy a cement render mixer?

No, they were available as well. I hadn't seen these machines at this price before, so, getting one hell of a backache yesterday and having seen them advertised, I went got one. Can't load ta picture I'm afraid, computer problems.

cooked,
Okay, no problems then. It was just that Thai Watsadu tried to flog me one when they didn't know me.

Well they know me now, after their throwing of cement sacks on to the truck so that they burst, tried to take off the rope that I had used to attach a load and re-do it, (been doing that since I was 12 years old) and distributing beers last time when I thought they did a good job. I don't rant as a rule, but people do notice when I am annoyed. My wife didn't want to go back after the cement sack episode.
