    40 years for me as well. Started out as an ABC apprentice tin knocker and worked my way down to a lowly distributor salesman with a few other HVAC gigs in between.

    Good gravy! It'll be 30 years this year that I've been a hired lackey in the HVAC business. Little did I realize the insanity that I would have to face over the years from unscrupulous managers, weird naked customers, and techs who think they know it all- brag on themselves constantly- and are ultimately revealed as putzes. It's a wonder that I have any coherency left myself. Still, being a hired lackey in the HVAC business has put food on the table. For that, I am very thankful that I entered the trade.

    Sh!t.....


    I aint sayin nothin.....


    ya ole farts ya
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.
