    My first wall of shame post

    Worked on the roof top unit at a local Chinese restaurant last month. Notice the safe and easy access from the ladder to the upper level of the roof by way of the acrobatic maneuvering around the electrical service. Not sure what is in that tub, might be old cooking oil but I didn't investigate real close. I had to stand in that water to rewire that unit and replace the capacitor. I charged them a hazardous access fee, a hazardous working environment fee and a bit extra to cover my frustration.

    Looks exactly like a Chinese restaurant. You found a new lunch hangout at least, one crate for you and one for the rats.

    This is exactly why we have higher rates for Chinese restaurants

    They always seem to be grease pits, that oil is a pain to get off anything.

    That looks about like the roof of a combo Donut shop/fried chicken/Chinese food place I used to do some service for.
    I never ate their food, even the thought eating there makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    When I presented the bill to the woman behind the register it went like this:
    Her: "You got ac working, it is cool now."
    Me: "Yup, it's working ok now." I hand her the invoice.
    Her: "Oh! That's so spensive! You give discount?"
    Me: "No."
    She paid cash, all in tens. Don't think I'll be eating there after being in their kitchen and on their roof.

    It was their roof access, already in place but I did make sure I was insulated from it and the far enough away form the power lines. Still charged them extra though.

    The last pic is showing the lower roof which is a storage shed attached the rear of the building. Think the grill is just laying up there.
