    Now, I'm in a position where I'm always "on call" in that I always answer the phone but I don't always have to GO.

    Of course, I typically act as the 24/7 backup guy.

    I did it for about 10 years. Maybe a little less.

    Combining 24/7 on-call with the crazy amount of calls we were getting at the time, it was enough to burn you out.

    60 hour weeks were light weeks.

    Hated it.

    About 4-5 years ago, they handed me the reins for my own area, and I started to look for ways to reduce the amount of calls. Most logical method was to just FIX IT. Every call, every time. FIX IT.

    That became my mantra. Fix It. OM. Like a Hindu guru, I repeated my mantra many, many times daily.

    End result, now my guys are b***hing at me because they aren't getting ENOUGH hours...

    mourning Bret & all..hope your Tuesday is doing well. The HP got one Doug. The 3ph pump went out on one leg. SOOOOOO finally found a single phase one that is made in America and can do away with allot of crap that is bound to F up, like the drive and such. This mourning the pump we are using locked out . But it's up and running now. Going to pull the suction line out and see if this is the culprit. Probable is but will not know till we pull it. We have to anyway because we're putting the new pump down by the water source and have to cut pipe and pull wire. And it's over 100 all week...Thank goodness no little one are around to keep them cool. I can take the heat most of the time !!
