    Good morning!!! Service manager called last night and I've decided to stay at least through the busy season. Just tired of diveing 75 miles at 5 PM to handle refigeration calls because we don't have any other techs that know refrigeration. I call BS on that one and the service manager agrees, but he told me it was due to the fact they can send me on a call and they know it will be done right. That gave me an ego boost, but I just need to slow down a little bit getting run to death. With that beeing said I need to get down to the 16th street mall to work on a make table.

    Stupid syphillis I never thought it could be that. Got to run some calls for my company this morning to pick up the slack from our dead beat techs. I will be off tomorrow if you need a hand though. Residential calls would be a nice change from commercial, my back hurts.

    You're right. It is a compliment to your abilities. I remember seeing an amateur cartoon under the plastic cover at someone's desk years ago. It was "snoopy" sitting on a curb, looking very tired. The caption was what he was saying: "working here is like working in a whore house. The better you do your job, the more they screw you."

    I'm glad we don't do much refrigeration, and no ice makers or restaurant work. But I do understand your feelings about windshield time. I covered a couple of hundred miles yesterday, and put in 12 hours. On the last call, found they had ordered the wrong logic module for an economizer.

    Hang in there!

    And, good morning, FCS and everyone!

    Morning you Murican degenerates......
    Drove out 55-60 Km to do a S/U on a York Ultratech that's been sitting for 9 months 'waiting for the millionaire to move in' (yes he's Murican Huh) and he HAD to have his cooling started up. Phoned at 3pm ... Geeze that's never been done to you guys , right? Like a dumb a$$, I don't get him to check all the regular stuff, drive up there, go through all the S/U checks.....GD sparky didn't wire the IAH.....came home at 7pm ate cold tough supper and whined.....I'll never learn ....

    First she did chemo one day a week for three weeks on with one week off. Then the radiation was every day( 5 days a week) for five weeks and sometimes that crossed with the chemo. Shortly after, they changed the medicine for the chemo it was four days in a row once a month with some injection on the fifth day. She also had IV Nutrition the last couple of months which seemed to help her out and IV antibiotics just started, all at home. Then she went into the hospital. She needed general anesthesia for a biopsy and went on the breathing machine and never came off.

    Thanks for your kind words and thoughts.

    Hang in there, Greg.

    Your story parallels what happened to a family in my church two years ago, except the wife and mother did not pass while under for a procedure. It was, however, a very draining and protracted trial for everyone. Of course, the best that can be said is that she was prepared for this transition, as was her family, as much as anyone can be.

    In your case, the higher wisdom may have been that your wife was spared additional suffering.

    This will be difficult, but we are all here for you.

    I'm home already, broken wire going to the evaporator, what luck I've never gotten out of that place less than 4 hours. Now I can relax and enjoy my weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    I have solved two major problems with wire corrections this summer. I used to find only one or two during an entire year. Maybe it's just law of averages. The ones that really get my goat are the ones where someone only replaced part of the thermostat wire run between the roof and the stat, and they made a splice in the ceiling. Not long ago, I found a 200 foot run of thin gauge wire that I had to double up using spares to get enough current to pull in the contactor on a condensing unit.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    I had 2 wire problem fixes last week alone. One of them was messed with by a cheap landlord hack which caused the problem. The other was the stat wire was wedged between the floor joist and supply plenum in a crawlspace. After years of stepping on the same spot in the floor, it had worn through the wire insulation and was shorting the stat and making the contactor chatter when you stepped in that spot.
