    Worked with one of those guys that has to think about doing something for 25 mins before they actually do anything.ie:"I think I need to take that screw out lets stare at it for a half hour first"

    I usually get bored looking at a screw for 20 minutes, but there's lots of other screws to look at

    I like to jump right in and mess it all up, then spend the rest of day trying to figure out what is really wrong.

    Sometimes you're better off looking at that really long screw for 25 minutes before you put it back where a really short screw went and run it through the condenser

    We would work very well together.

    I like to get near the very end before I realize that I lost my hole saw arbor or something...

    Worked with one guy who'd hang a length of pipe, step back, light a cigarette, admire that length of pipe until he was finished with the smoke, then repeat the whole process.

    Drove me insane.

    well you would go nuts with me,when i walk in into an acct,for a no cooling on a r.i.first thing i do is shut it down,get coffee,pull grill,{drink coffee while staring at the winter coat wrapped around the condenser}and thinking about the sound my knees are gonna make when i kneel down too clean that baby,and i do mean clean.then i stand up waiting for that sound from the knees again,and mumbling stupid **** about the customer.

    It is okay as long as he "becomes ONE with the screw" in the process of staring at it. Unless of course he is just stoned and hallucinating.
