Why you must own tools!!

To piggy back of our tools conversation, i was up at my garage, working on the acura, a little of this and that, putting the trunk lining back in from the stereo install. So i hear this pedal bike come up, japanese guy with a bag of trash on the handle bars, prob headed to the dumpster. So, in the 10 sec i am locked on to this guy, b/c he is coming right at me, and i am thinking WTF, i said hi, he doesn't speak english and nods in hello, points to my air hose and then to his tires, so i pumped them up for him, he is all smiles, and me, the satisfaction of owning tools, have what you need and you can do more stuff :deathmeta:
