    Get into refrigeration, and work for a company that does work at restaurants.

    Working in a kitchen and dealing with all the cooks and managers will make you wish you where on a roof or in a mechanical room by yourself.

    You mean like today changing a compresser in a busy kitchen. Or maybe yesterday changing an ice machine and the head chief saying when do I get ice? Never lonely though. Another good thing, I know where they hide the coffee.

    Did he have the full headdress and everything?

    I tell them they'll have ice within a half hour of when im done. It may not be ALL the ice youre looking for, but it will be ice.

    I love working restaurants. I had to learn the gas systems, since all I worked on in the service was electric, but it was well worth it. There is nothing more fulfilling than an executive cheif that you have just saved a walk in freezer full of food for. I have 8 hours till I can get up and ten and a half hours before I can arrive at work, and I can't wait. I do fine with those roof top package units that are so common with restaurants, but give me a a down ice machine, and I'm a happy tech. Executive cheifs and restaurant managers can be appreciative when you get an emergency service call repaired. A lot of work in a crew in obscured as to who did a good job, but working on restaurant gear is usually a one person job, though there are exceptions, and when you get the gear up and running, the cooks, managers etc adore you.

    You know now that I said how terrible restaurants are, I got woken up and called in to go to a restaurant this morning (sunday), and the place was super clean, and everybody was real nice.
