    People who are the best don't have to tell you about it.

    Many posters in this thread have made my point. When you think you are the best, you have no reason to get better. Some learn to live, the best live to learn.

    When I was a field supervisor we had a gentalman who claimed over 330 years in the business. I get called out because the freezer he worked on was dancing all over. This expert installed a large drier & sight glass on a cap. tube system and charged it till the sight glass was full. He also removed the hold back valve because he never saw one before! Then gets mad when I write up my report telling the boss that this guy is a BS artist.
    Amen Brother!

    I have met so many who claimed they weere seasoned men. In reality, they all knew some things about the trade but didnt know enough to be considered seasoned.
    Whatever I do not currently know, I can learn. many wont say that. And some will even claim what they dont currently know, isnt important!


    It's so weird, so many guys are just so proud they will never open up to learning.

    I agree with frozensolid, "Once you start thinking you're the best, you no longer are." Pride always comes before a fall. I've seen too many cocky service techs over the years
    have to eat crow when they proclaim to a customer, "You're troubles are over."

    There's a difference between confidence and arrogance. Those who self-promote usually are trying, conciously or subconciously, to cover up their own defeciencies.
