    You should do what I do.

    You just point and say, "let's put that one over there!"

    Then, when they are too slow, I show them up. None of them can believe I am as strong as I am. It's like I'm Clark Kent.

    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    this is a sad thread:

    Gout, I have pinched nerves in both knees, arthritis in my fingers, wrist and elbows and my back has been killing me since '93 when I hurt it installing post holes for my deck ( I figured I was a tough guy and thought I'd save a buck by using a PHD~~~Just stupid )

    And I work alone. After installing a furnace, Im am so sore and hurting, I get home and I don't want my wife to even touch me.

    I think the only thing on my body that doesn't hurt is my hair
    I LOVE SLEEP

    I'm just about 50 years now and I've been new construction and service for 15 years, now office for the past 18 months.
    Put on at least 10 pounds and feel week when I do have to carry my bag on emergency service calls.
    I'd do something, but I'm toooo tired. ha ha
    luck dan
