Why heck ya !! real special in fact. Just like all of us are. We sorta keep a nation eating good foods,alive in cool/warm homes, researchers doing their thing,Kids learning, preserving old thing for the future,etc. damn right ,,,special and it feels good.
Yeah, I know. They got me when I didn't know what they needed, and still knew more than what they had. I'm amazed at what I know now considering the "mentors" I've had, but you guys have been the best mentors yet. Thank you. I've been thinking lately that I would like to get back into service work, and have had Svc. Mgrs. tell me they liked my resume, but they didn't want to pay what they guessed I was worth. Don't know if they were shining me or what. When I'm told to let my low psi boilers go witout chemical treatment, because there is a 100 gal/day condensate leak they wont fix, and the guy harv described recommends to, I get steamed.

So they always end up getting the kinds of guys who think they know, and tell you they know, but they still don't know.
