    You are like one of the whores in deadwood.... F---ed!
    Run as fast as you can. I know it may be hard finding the pay and everything else but maybe you will get lucky.

    Good luck.

    Hate to hear that Ryan. I know those Indians "The Raghead kind" when they come in the next thing will be every employee will be a raghead. Start now looking for something else and don't look back or you'll turn into a pillar of salt.

    Exclamation Yet another good reason for my infamous list!

    Ragheads are cheap, and have a tendency to not pay after receiving service. Fact.

    I am not politically correct, in fact, I'm often just plain not correct. Fact.

    I don't care what others think about my attitude. I am discriminatory. I know and accept that. Big fact.

    Here's a little list of businesses that I never conduct business with:
    • Asian groceries.
    • Asian restaurants.
    • Middle Eastern groceries.(Raghead, dothead...)
    • Middle Eastern restaurants.
    • Mediterranean restaurants.
    • Restaurants, of any variety.
    • Establishments that sell alcoholic beverages.
    • Establishments involved in gambling, legal or otherwise.
    • Any establishment that sells gasoline, in conjunction with any of the above listed items.
      • Above list subject to be added to in the future. No deletions will be made.


    That's the way it is, I don't need to explain my reasons, but let me state here that my biggest tax problem for the last few years was having no uncollected debt to write off. I like it that way.
    Guess I better add Middle Eastern Hoteliers...

    Condenserdaves list is right on target. The only question you have to ask yourself, is whether it's wiser to be politically or *financially* correct.

    I agree wholeheartedly,I have wasted too many precious minutes with these customers,So much so that I had to instruct my secretary to flat turn these customers away.
    {scenario}
    Chinese restaurant calls,no cooling.
    Arrive at call,extension ladder to rooftop....
    Visual Inspection,Disconnect burned to hell and back,wiring burned behind breaker in disconnect.
    Visual inspection,breaker in main panel tripped and one leg burned beyond recognition..
    Me to customer,"We will have to replace disconnect,burned breaker and replace burned wiring to get unit operational to check unit status,it will cost $***.00 any other repairs after that will be extra."
    Customer"o.k.,do you take checks?"
    Me,"Yes after all repairs are made"

    Repair wiring to get unit operational,tripped breaker.......
    Compressor shorted to ground......oh sheeeaattt.
    I knew right then,i was screwed...
    Needless to say,I never got paid for replacing the disconnect,breaker and wiring.Couldnt even get the diagnostic fee..
    Took it like a man and went home....
    Live and learn...
    DICEMAN was right about that "gut feeling" I am honing this instinct every day.
    If I posted my true feelings about dealing with "certain nationalities" on this site i could probably get in some trouble.
    I am sure there are others who have dealt with these problems and agree with me.....

    I used to know a guy who started out with one Indian and one Chinese account. He was really cheap and was a fair mechanic, just had no business sense. They passed his name out to all of their relatives and friends in similar businesses. He was working 12 hours a day and making less than he would as a tech. They kept him so busy he had to turn away people willing to pay more.

    When you are searching for your next job, I advise you to try your damndest to find a museum. The benefit package is the best I've seen in 32 years and once they see you can do "inhouse" what they used to contract out they'll send those $ your way. In 2 years they raised my salary by 9,000 and given 2,500 in bonuses and I started at what I was making in the truck. Wish I had made the jump 10 years ago.

    You work in a museum?
    Where everything is all ancient and stuffed?
    No one bothers you cause they are 5000 years old, yeah, nice gig.

    I worked at a hotel owned by one Patel family. Interesting place. They purchased the hotel were planning on a $1,000,000 fluff and go job, lthen sell. descided to keep the hotel. $10.5 million later and they were still going. So some can spend the money.
