    going into the weekend...(my on call weekend)
    100 calls holding...The dispatcher said "screw the A.C.s , save the Ice Cream ". 22 hours Friday , 5 hours sleep, 15 hours Saturday, 6 hours sleep ,14 hours Sunday .

    Monday morning got home at 02:30 , took off my boots on the front porch and fell asleep there for a half hour , I woke myself up snoreing. How silly is this trade?

    ...I love Mondays after my on call weekends...the reenforcments are comin'.

    When I was a young man an old contractor told me,"Never complain about too much business."

    Now I have been around long enough to know exactly what he meant by that statement.

    I once worked for a Chicago suburb contractor that sold retro a/c installs like crazy until the market was saturated then he had to change to other stuff. Things will always change. But about those high seer units. If you watch all utilties like gasoline and gas they are probably going to freek you out in the future. I feel any sales person that doesn't try to sell hi seer stuff is doing their customer a disservice. The trick is to sell value over price. It's not that hard. Look at what people want on their new cars. Not cheap but value.
    Tracers work both ways.
