I'm not sure how to do it but if someone can post the one where Bevis and Butthead launch themselves into the wall with a treadmill that one is hilarious.

I'll keep you posted.
So Al, what's the story? I've been wondering how this worked out. I'm still totally annoyed at your friends about this, since it reminds me waaayyyy too much of some people I know. Did you follow through? Or did they come to their senses? Color me curious/nosy.

Sorry, nothing new to report yet. The friends will be driving to their daughter's house (in L.A.) in April, so that's when the repossession will take place, if it happens. I chatted with the couple at a party last night, but the subject didn't come up -- I'm not going to say anything.

I've been using the treadmill a lot more recently, since the weather is now cold and rainy.

I've been scanning craigslist for treadmills.

I promise to report here when anything happens

A friend and I "junk swap" alot ... we also share tools. He has asked for a couple item back (a ladder most recently ... needed it for the kids tree house). Really miss the ladder. But would'nt let a material object come between us.

Better still, buy yourself a ladder. You only pass this way once...

I just stumbled across this thread and got a real hoot out of it. Many people will ask for anything...since they don't have the sense or manners to care about anyone else but themselves. I would thoughtfully unplug it and let them have it back with a smile. You got it for nothing anyway. Then, I would write them off my list. Their actions show what kind of people they really are. Your DW sees something in them that we do not. Maybe one day she will see the light.
