Amazing But True Hardware Stories

Free Firewood

As a lumberyard we accumulate piles of wood pallets. The local fire department is always after us to get rid of them. A few years back we made a large sign out of an old sheet of 4×8 plywood. We painted on the plywood “FREE FIREWOOD” and put it in front of a pile of pallets and left it in front of our store overnight. Next morning all the pallets were still there but the plywood sign was gone.
