Following the Home Warranty guy again
He drilled a hole in the cabinet to run a flexible gas connector into the blower compartment and then drilled another hole through the shelf into the burner compartment. I'm just glad I discovered this before they went up in flames.
And it appears that foil tape is now an approved method for joining PVC vent pipes.
why are there no repercussions for these idiots, yet someone who follows the rule and slips up gets reamed?
priceless reaction link!!!!
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
from an excerpt by Paul Jacob in Sun City, AZ

Oh yeah, the furnace was set on a metal return box but he put the filter rack on the side of the furnace and cut a hole there instead of using a bottom return. It has a 5 ton AC and could really use the volume or a bottom return.
You got a pic of this? I wanna see it

The customers tell me that they can't reach the contractor by phone and information online leads us to believe he's left the business. Either that or just trying to keep his head down now that the sh*t is hitting the fan.
