    That never happens to me.

    Just kidding, the goal is to make sure it happens less and less!

    The sad thing is, more and more of those older skilled tradesmen are retiring or dying.

    And it is hard to find the dedicated younger ones that want to get into this trade.

    I sure agree with you there.. at 430 everyday stay off the roads near me as all my service trucks are speeding home... the work ethic of the newer generation is not like it used to be ..or is the new generation smarter than we were. And wow is it hard to find good help as well.....
