    And probably feel like you didnt get anything done. Ive had those days myself.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    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.

    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
    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.
