    Frown

    I'm constanly amazed by some of the attitudes in this room. Some people think that by being marginally proficient at a trade that they're the s*** (spot) and this is license to be rude . I find most of these types are in fear of thier jobs and tend to be dismissive of anything in general, gossip and backstab. I don't mean to stereotype, but the perceived hard ass , flat - top , old school white boy thing is pretty old . Quit being so insecure - . Nothing so pathetic is an owner who abuses his employees or is flip whenever a question is asked. By the way 'TurdSpott' wasn't 'whining' about my knees - get over it - I would never work for you. For the most part everyone's pretty professional.

    This site represents a cross section of hvac people, and is often a case study in human behaviour. I've found that we tend to be a little more opinionated as a group than people in other fields for some reason. When I first came here this shocked me, until I read some of my own replies and realized I fit right in

    In my case, the desire to be here and learn from people who know more than I do about certain things outweighs my distaste for some of the attitudes I encounter.

    You must make the same decision. If you decide to stay, you might want to grow a little thicker skin. I have.

    You have yet to meet some of the more aggressive people here

    Dont pick up your marbles and leave just yet. The game must go on. If you got upset about the knee pad thing wait until you put a few screws in your hand or kneel down on a few. JCE hang in there, we wont let up on...I mean give up on you. Peace.

    And butt scratching and farting, burping, sniffing

    Arguing with some people is like wrestling a pig - eventually you realise the pig actually enjoys it

    Gonads serve a useful purpose but are no substitute for brains

    I was rude long before I became marginally proficient.
