    Seems like every time I get a handshake on a job sold, I have to get myself a "Treat" for bein a good boy. Just sold a 7500 changeout and now I'm dying to get on e-bay. It's a bad habit, hope I'm the only one with it.
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    You could "treat" a friend to a ticket to the convention! Chicago is a lot closer than Denver.

    I'm the same way, I had UEI pocket thermometer crack at the stem so I needed a new one, so go by Carrier and pick up some parts, see fieldpiece thermometer, with locking stem so I bought it.. Run a couple of calls and wind up at United refrigeration so try and get my UEI warrantied as I only bought it a couple of months ago, they are out of them so they give me a fieldpeice pocket type for nothing..So now I have 2 pocket type fieldpeice thermometers.

    I am always buying something new and improved..LOL

    Started with a new job a couple months ago. The best part about it is I can tell my wife that "I have to have these tools, they're special tools that I need now for my new job". Meanwhile i'm mainly just upgrading.
    It's great. Tax write off too.

    Put "hope" back in your pocket.

    Mines every Thursday/payday.















    And it's not that bad.
