Default No help

Does anyone else have a hard time getting friends over to help wrench? I have a nice heated pole barn with a stocked fridge, nice tools and a good radio but have a hell of a time to get any company.

Usually I don't necessarily need help just some company would be nice. It seems like its getting harder and harder to get people to come over. It doesn't help I guess that all of my friends that were into jeeping now don't have a jeep.

I guess the upside is right now I'm working in the shed with the radio cranked up with Rhianna on more beer for me.:)

I have a big heated shop but the people I share it with constantly keep it looking like a bomb went off in there. As for getting help, when they are there and I need help, they help.

I also don't have a stocked fridge.

I call bullshit on the random song. I recall a questionable playlist coming out of your jeep at the mustache run as well.

Nobody visits my barn either though.

I'm so busy, kids, job, wife, I don't have time to wrench on my stuff, let alone help others with their rigs. At a certain point, ppl stop having time.

People always come over to hang out in the barn. We usually drink too much beer and don't get anything done. If I want to get anything done I work alone.

They do when you cry enough.

I don't get any help either. I don't have Rhianna on the radio, I usually have sports on the 37" flat screen.
