I ask because there's a thrift store near me with a couple of cast iron pans that have been used for art work so they have paintings in them. I've been holding off on buying them since I don't know if I could actually scrape it all off and make them usable for food. If they are fine to go what would the best way to turn them into cook ware instead of art work?
Hello! So I work at a certain red-coloured big box store. Basically, today there was this customer who needed help in a totally different department from where I work but nobody was listening to our security dude's walkie requests to help her, so I went over.
I went over, and ask if she was doing okay, and she was said "no i am not!!!", and then said "you don't look like you work here" looking me up and down - even though i was in dress code for my work (i was wearing a comfy spiderman shirt and jeans and a name badge of course) . I just said "oh I'm sorry about that but i do work here" and she said "I guess that's what's acceptable now" and I kinda brushed it off and asked what she needed help finding - and she asked me for motor oil.
I responded saying that I had never seen motor oil, but let me look it up on the little device they give us - and started to search for motor oil. She said "Okay, but I've been waiting a long time for help so I'm going to look around" and she went into the next aisle while i searched it on the device - and surprise surprise we didn't sell any motor oil. I went and found her and our exchange went like this: (l is for lady, and me is me of course)
me: hey! Sorry but it looks like we don't sell motor oil at this location and only other stores will carry this specific type of motor oil.
l: What do you mean??? That's ridiculous. How could you not sell motor oil?? don't you think that's strange???
me: I'm sorry about that, but there is a jiffy lube across the street---
l: Go away. How dare you say that to me. does shoo-ing motion with her hand
me: starts walking away alright, have a nice day
l: THIS IS A GROCERY STORE. HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT TO ME??
so i just walked away. Still wondering how anything i said was so terrible but oh well
Like no seriously like what if I were in a survival situation where I only had like 3 eggs and like a barrel's worth of motor oil, what do I do then? Like can I make the eggs using the motor oil? Or should I have maybe packed some dishwashing liquid or some shit? It is a very difficult, almost philosophical dilemma
Just wondering if you could you petrol to clean your gun and motor oil to lubricate the action if actual gun cleaning products weren't available? Gun oil is just a petroleum distillate, so it should be about the same as natural motor oil, right?
