A fiend texted last weekend "Hey, you need a welding table!"

Me " You askin, or are you telling"

Friend "Telling"

Me " ok, im listening"

Friend " A guy I know is clearing out his dads old shop, he has 2 tables, one is app. 3'x8', the other is app.  5'x5'. The 6x5 has a small drill press and 2 vices mounted to it. Make an offer"

I was buzy so I didnt have time to answer.
3 hours later.......

Friend " well he said $100 each. If tou want the vices and drill prress it will be an extra $50"

Me " I will take them"

Friend " how much do you want???"

Me "ALL of it!!!! Thats $250 by my math, when do you need me to get them?"

Friend " We can meet Satuerday "

Me " see yall then"
