    The gauntlet

    Sometimes when I'm at work I feel like hvac is part serious work, part gameshow.
    1. Walk across the wobbly 2x6 that is held up by wire tied to a drain pipe

    2. While on wobbly board avoid falling 40ft into the pit of doom.

    3. Don't look down while climbing through hole above the pit of doom because you'll be stabbed by sharp screws.

    4. If you it made through that don't relax because it's a rubber roof and when wet or if you stumble there is a built in slip n' slide of death as you come out onto the roof.

    Never be afraid to fire a customer.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    The only thing differentiating "The Gauntlet" from a crazy Japanese game show is an announcer dressed like a clown and screaming constantly, and a sudden rush of water when you step out on the roof!

    While a Japanese game show is more of a somber, serious affair, in comparison

    Yeah, the game show was called "Wipe Out!"
    Everyone has a purpose in life..........even if it's to be a bad example.

    Seek first to understand, before seeking to be understood.
