Where does an employee get off laughing at a guy trying to make it on his own? I started off with a Jeep Wrangler. You would be surprised how many fixtures I could fit in that thing with the soft top down. You would have laughed at me too.
yes, i would. But, not as much as if you were driving a minivan.

Prove it smart ass.
Prove what? You spelled it wrong. Maybe my ass is smarter than your brain.

Definition of TROFFER

: an inverted trough serving as a support and reflector usually for a fluorescent lighting unit
Origin of TROFFER

blend of trough and coffer
First Known Use: 1942

Trougher
a person who uses public coffers for personal, political, or monetary gain
The trougher most often denotes a pig who gorges themselves at the expense of citizen taxpayers, at the public "trough" by advertising or parroting misleading policy.
Troughers are also people who support government policy blindly and without regard to accuracy or truthfulness.
Generally any person who gorges themselves like a pig feeding at a the trough.

Maybe "trougher" also describes a fat ass employee who cashes a paycheque every month and laughs at those who have the balls to start a business, blissfully ignorant of the fact that, if it wasn't for free enterprisers, he wouldn't have a job.

I think the real story is the variety of ladders that are going to be used on what looks like a one or two man job for 1/2 day. :laughing:
That's 32 fixtures if he has the back seats up.. You can slide a sheet of plywood in and close the hatch if the seats are removed, and that takes 2 minutes.
My wife drives one of them vans.

Both troffer and trougher are slang in regards to lighting and both are as right or wrong but thanks for getting wound up over nothing. :laughing:

I don't have a problem with the picture other than the aluminum ladders. That says idiot, handyman, or hack.
I would add the fixtures should be better secured.
