Will I need to bring over my forklift to get you out of the basement first?
My first impression was that the implied accusation here is that the other person is extremeley fat, but while I would understand how something like a winch could help, how exactly would you operate a forklift in this situation?
Or maybe I read it wrong, and what you mean is that the other person is part of a subculture of basement dwellers (possibly with redneckish undertones) that can be lured out by the promise of showing them a forklift. I could see myself being enticed to get out of my house if someone was coming over to show me their new Dodge Viper, so I guess other people could be into forklifts, especially if they belong to a blue collar class.
Either way, could you clarify? Based on the thread layout, that forklift comment seems like a tipping point and I feel left out of the conversation because I don't fully understand the implications.
