So we're all being affected one way or another. For me, my job has been drastically affected. My wife's role at the hospital is completely fluid at the moment. The day care is closed so our two year old needs daily care. And we'll be welcoming a newborn in the next 6-8 weeks. Needless to say, it's a lot of unknown and change in a very short period of time. And the lack of a real timeline is less than comforting.

I'd like to make a thread that is separate from the main update thread or humor thread, which I believe both serve important purposes on their own. I'd like this to be a place to discuss change, frustrations, excitements, joys, and pains. Feel free to share your struggles, thoughts, ideas and tips, or even pictures of your bored kids.

-Brennan

All of the complaints that I read are small but the overall opinion is that it's a really good appliance.

Walmart is known for telling a company that they either have to lower the cost by 5% per year, or improve the product.
So maybe next year the handle issue is solved. Maybe the following year the pellet hopper feeds slightly better when you're running low. Maybe they'll include a bucket for the cleanout one year. It's a way to play Walmart's game without playing Walmart's game. I like pit boss products.
I disagree - Walmart's products are cheaper because they are made cheaper. I have had first hand experiences with cheap made products (including a smoker). A relative that is a manager for Walmart has confirmed this also. Companies are being told all the time to get their products cheaper. I buy only my basic grocery items from Walmart. Meat and anything mechanical I buy somewhere else.

Not sure where you are located, but my local Supermarket (H-E-B) has had a reasonable supply of it. Also, the local Dollar store has had TP, Paper Towels, AB soap and household cleaning supplies.

They do that too. You'll get no argument from me. Never buy electronics from them. The difference with that grill is, if I'm not mistaken, is that it's only sold there. There won't be a better version elsewhere.

Help! Too much online shopping.

Also...today I went on a walk down to Balboa Park. As I was walking back, a crackhead lady rides up to this area across the street from the park on a bike, cussing and throws the bike down in the street and says to some guys who apparently knew her "fork this and fork everyone and everything (and a whole slew of other curse words).

The other homeless crackhead guys she was "complaining" to were all: "Jan, hold on what happened?" And she goes on a tirade saying "fork the forking police and fork all these mother forkers who live indoors!"

Never heard myself referred to as someone who lives indoors. From now on when people ask where I live, that will be my answer.
