So you actually only traveled less then 30 miles? 30 miles to and from is 60 miles. 60 miles times 6 customers is 360 miles but you only traveled 350 miles. Are these numbers being manipulated?

no, when i started out i had X miles on the truck, when i came home i had a total of 350 miles added to X

here we'll do it this way..cause i hate being called a liar:

distance to #1: 115 miles
distance to #2: 053 miles
distance to #3: 026 miles
distance to #4: 074 miles
distance to #5: 026 miles
distance to #6: 056 miles
distance from #6 to home:15 miles..

rat's i did lie, it was 365 miles round trip.

didnt work all that hard:

installed a compressor at #1
cleaned a ice maching at #2
cleaned out coils and reinstalled a cover for a condensing unit at #3
replaced a cleaning pump on a manitowoc at #4
repaired a defrost timer at #5
replaced start componets at #6

Sorry if you thought I implied you were liar. The question was directed at my numbers. I was using fuzzy math. That is where a person makes the numbers support the argument they present.. A lot of times, company owners will have bean counters apply fuzzy math to save money. Using my example of fuzzy math, if you drive 50 miles an hour, I only have to pay you for 1.2 hours of drive time since you only went 60 miles. Using your numbers, I'll have to pay you for over 7 hours of drive time. See how I can get out of paying you 6 hours? We used a lot of fuzzy logic when I was in the military. When applied, anything can be justified. Just remember, Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy was he.

6. no, fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had no hair, but fuzzy wuzzy didnt care cause fuzzy wuzzy wore G.I. under ware..

something i heard a million times when i was a kid (im old)

7. According to the fuzzy logic math, there are 5 unaccounted for miles. I'm going to chalk it up to a detour for a nice cold one. Boy this job can be fun after all.lol

8. If you work that much, you won't have time for a daily fix of hvactalk.You need to readjust priorities....

9. na, hopefully this was a one time thing..it just came out that i could go and get everyone that one day..it took me through western nevada and back home in the eastern high sierras..thank God i have a newer 1 ton duramax with sirus radio..
and believe me i come in here all the time, i even bought a laptop to take with me in case i need some help..

10. That was a tough day,but sounds kind of scenic. Sure the boss appreciates your getting it done.

11. yea..my boss is a dildo..........actually im self employeed..
and i love the desert, i have a springfield armory M-14 with ALL the goodies..i take it out there and break rocks..
