Yeah, I forgot to mention the associated odors that go with a cleanup.

Of course the "kick save" is a hockey goalie's term, but I wouldn't expect those living much farther south than the great white north to make that association.

Nice that someone can relate. Small world, ain't it Bubba?

:wink:

In the grocery biz that's called a "kick save." Extremely useful for prevention of the shattering of jars of spaghetti sauce, salsa, etc. tumbling from the fifth shelf towards the floor.

It's universally accepted among vendors that a sore instep or toe is prefferable to chasing down a mop, wet floor signs and suffering the embarrassment of a broken jar. Almost a matter of pride in fact, not to mention the loss of time involved with a cleanup.

That brought back memories from my grocery store days,Bosco! And,as you well know, you rarely even get much of a ding with those kick saves, as long as you get your foot off the floor and learn to recoil with the impact. I worked in a glass and china warehouse before I started in grocery stores (all during college), so breakage prevention was jus' part of the tricks of the trade. Of course, we had very creative ways of breakin' stuff when we felt like it as well, thanks to wrist rockets and throwin' knives,etc. Among the worst breaks was a bottle of vinegar,pickles, or herring.

Bad news about the original, but at least you've got replacements. And whatever the price, far better value for money than the bits of sawn off curtain rail most shops try to sell you.

Hang onto that one.

I dropped mine the other day over a hardwood floor. It hit my foot, which ski-jumped it into a fast horizontal trajectory low over the floor instead of a direct impact. Bounced hard off a wall. Still intact. Whew!

I've been working with the slides mentioned above but - the truth is, I really had gotten used to having a slide that was a perfect fit, like the Ultimate that broke.

Well, here's it's clone - another perfect fit, salmon pink beauty. I try not to 'Blame my tools" too much - but my hands felt "Cleverer" with the familiar dimensions and weight. Probably like a Billiard player having a favorite cue.

Along with it, Ian sent a stunning piece of glass that reminds me of Murano-style glass sculpture. I know that I'll be getting a lot of comments on this one at shows; it's real eye candy.

Dark blue with opaque yellow streaks, about the same fit, heavier and thicker than the Pink one. This item has some serious tone. These slides wouldn't look out of place in an Art Museum.

Once again, Diamond Slides have gone way past my expectations - they have a clearer vision of my ideal slides than I did myself.

Spot on.
