I think we're probably safe

I think we're probably safe from the corded screwdrivers because all you have to do to be safe is stand just outside of the cords reach......Of course if they have an extension cord that is a different matter.

Well. This will never do.

Well. This will never do. This fool is bringing a screwdriver to a gun fight??? Wait until he pulls this stunt at the wrong store, say one in Georgia. We bury 'em cheap but we bury'em deep....if we bury 'em. We may donate his body to science....what's left of it. Now, where have I seen that turkey before?
