The grates arrived one day later than they were supposed to and I wasn't home. Wife comes home, sees the box, and brings it inside. This conversation actually happened. The box is still sealed.

Mrs. Gummi: Did you buy more grates?

Gummi: Uhhhhh....  :-*  :-X

Mrs. Gummi: There's a grate-sized box here...  :o

Gummi: Yeah, they are grates.  :-[

Mrs. Gummi: Why'd you buy more grates?

Gummi: Uhhh.... They were cheap!  ;D

Mrs. Gummi: We don't need more grates.  >:( What are you gonna do with them?

Gummi: But they were cheap! I'll use them for projects, flip our used old grates when I sell grills on CL.  8)

Mrs. Gummi:We never need new grates.  >:(

Gummi: Yeah, that's because I sell kettles on CL with our old grates.

Mrs. Gummi: (thinks and stares)  ???  How many grates did you buy?

Gummi: Uhhhhh....  :-X  :-*

Mrs. Gummi: That box is definitely heavier than one grate.....   ::)

Gummi: Uhhhhh....  :-X :-\

Mrs. Gummi: It's heavier than our cast iron grates?? ???

Gummi:  :-[ I bought 6......

Mrs. Gummi: I knew it was more than one!  :o

She is not pleased.  >:(

Damn it, @captjoe06. This is all your fault.
I'm surprised you weren't a little quicker on your feet being a veteran of the game.

"Honey,  at $6.33 per Grate the Return on Investment is going to be at least triple. "  When I can advertise a so-so kettle with" Brand new grate" on my CL ad I'll more than triple my return or at very least be able to move a grill that otherwise might not be movable. 

Cmon man.  You gotta be quicker!

That's awesome!  I think everyone on here can relate.  I went with "the old grates are starting to rust and it's dangerous for people to eat on them."   Just thinking of your parents and the kids.

That's what I said when I bought the stainless grates.
