You just never know,
The material we manufacture is a white powdery substance with shiny bits in it. When we first started shipping
it, we vacuum sealed the bags, that by the way, weigh in at 2.2 lbs or about 1 kilo.
So I am over at Indiantown marina taking delivery
on a boat that we are getting ready to bring over to Tampa, its late and we decide to spend the night and leave in the morning.
The bar is still open, so we go over and have a few beers, start talking shop to this guy that has an old ferro
boat that he is repairing, naturally I started talking about our product. I just happen to have a couple of bags in the trunk of the car so I go out and bring in one and set it down on the bar.
The next thing I know, I am in an arm lock, a big hefty dude is trying to bend me down to the bar. Suddenly I realize I have a couple of DEA boys all excited.
Of course by this time I am pretty pi$$ed, and they did not appreciate my comment about " Go ahead, line out a little, if you have the guts" .
I felt sorry for them afterwards, they thought they just had a big bust walk right into their arms.
Needless to say, we no longer vacuum bag it. I am very careful when I move it from the factory to anywhere unless it is in a sealed box.
After all was said and done, we had a big laugh. I have run into one of the DEA boys a couple of times now and we can joke about it.
My arm and shoulder still twinge when I think about it though.
