This discussion in an open forum is unethical and unprofessional.
Belongs in an AOL chat room.

hehehehe.........ask me if it counts..sure it counts. I just thought that we are in a unique situation in this trade.........get to see the best and worst type of people . I'm in ottawa canada and our local hockey team the senators are nice guys to work for. Someone must work for the stars......if not , I want the type of units they have that never break down.

not to be rude but how is this un ethical and unprofessional? I'm not asking for details as to where they people live, or the security codes to disable alarms. I just thought that in a trade where we play psychiatrist
to many pieces of equiptment on a daily basis, we could share experiences that we all have had. if this upsets you then the post about the fish that eats dog , or the mad cow stuff must really get ya torqued up.

This forum certainly is turning into the HVAC edition of the National Enquirer.
Or, more appropriately, Tiger Beat.
I retract my earlier statement. It is not my job to correct your business ethics.

How is this like the national rag? I'm not here to cause sh#t but bubba relax.Condensedave needs that Bud more than Pete Coors. How is this a question of ethics? Did I break the Dave Lennox code of ethical conduct, what? I realize that you are being broad in your strokes but geez......lighten up......loosen up the boots before you go to bed.

AOL chat room?
WTH is that? This discussion is neither unethical or unprofessional. You could always click the other way if you don't like it. Or are you the hall monitor?

Dave's just mad cause he's never met anyone, famous or otherwise, Dave just isn't very sociable.
07-29-2003, 08:05 AM
thanks for the support boys. Not here to make enemies.......I'm a canadian redneck who supports his Amerian brother's and sisters in battle, drinks beer , races cars, and works for a living. Fighting here is pointless when others are doing much more farther away. Lets do our part to keep the beer cold so that when the real fighters come home after kicking butt we can all raise a glass.
HERE"S TO YA.............cheers

I haven't done work for any really famous people, other than local, but I have met quite a few because of my ex's job at the Hilton hotel years ago. Johnny from Sha Na Na spent the night at my house playing with my then infant son. Had Traci Lords and Ricki Lake stop by my house every morning for about a month to pick up my dog to take to the set of Cry Baby when it was being made. Met Frankie Valli, Buddy Hackett, some guitarist guy from some group called Angel and gave a roll of duct tape to Yul Brenner.

In one respect it's kinda neat to say whom you have done work for but also to whether Dave is kidding or not, it is a bit tacky too. We have been fortunate to be in Motown where there are many people that have made headlines through the years. In recent times we have done some stuff for some popular sports players. One of them has become a regular customer. I was the guy that went on the initial call. He had just done something in a game really stupid a few days before. He was just getting slammed in the paper. My first words were, in a very joking and nice way was "if you ever choke like that again I will never come back out here. Now lets fix your stuff". He loved it. Actually drank two Anchor Steam beers with him after I was done. Many of these people are just normal folks. Some aren't but most are. But too they don't want you exposing them either. They get enough of that crap.

she had a 5 story townehouse($20,000 a month)on the upper east side in new york with a 2 passenger elevator to get from floor to floor(no stairs).fan coil units with an air cooled chiller on the roof and pumps.i had to stop my helper from wanting to eat his lunch in her bathtub and thinking of her being in there all soaped up!
went to one of the houses of the owners of the bucaneers. this was beginging of summer. saw some autographed team balls, wanted to grab one, but i couldn't live with myself if i did. the owner was not there. from the tech there the year before they are very nice, and gave lots of buc's stuff. not really a celeberty i guess, but how many houses have you been in that belonged the the family of the current super bowl champs?
i don't think this is unethical. if i said the address or phone #, or even the city, that might be. or they had this or that is the house(excluding autographed balls, what sports guru won't have them). and saying people are nice is not anything that slanders them. sh#t, i wish more people would say i'm a nice guy. i didn't say which room they where in or how many furn/ac's they had. if i had to sum up the house all i would say is i wish it where my house.

Your a nice guy.
I want to work in Christina Aguileras(is this correct spelling?) house. Maybe while I am working she will ask me to marry her. LOL. That aint gonna happen.
And I agree, this is not an Unethical, or unprofessional conversation. I don't think there is any Client Privacy paperwork for HVAC techinicians to fill out. I will agree it is probably not a good thing to go out and give out names and addresses and tell people about what an A-hole some one was that you did work for.

To pick up YOUR DOG??? Did you even talk to Traci without staring at those fantastic yaps???
