So I am standing in line at Lowes yesterday at the service counter check out and some guy walks in with a copper rod that he cut in half. Remember this is would be hard to make up---- he did not want a refund he just wanted to give it back to them. The gal tried telling him that she could not give a refund on items cut in half and he keep telling her he just wanted to give it back to them. Being a helpful kinda guy I told the guy that I would be happy to take it off his hands---------- you guessed right----- he handed both halves and I went on my way. When I got home I read the tag--------- copper clad do not use as a ground rod----------- so what would you use it for-------- looks to be 3/4 round and was 8 foot long before being cut.
