    Here is what really irks me. I will be giving a full day seminar and call for a break. You all like breaks during a long seminar right?

    So I call a break and one or more guys in the class immediately come up to me and start telling me about some service call they went on. Well, I have been on a service call or two myself. So, I patiently listen to another story or two.

    Do I get a break? NO, I don't get a break. I would like to just have a few minutes to myself and not have to listen to yet another service call story. I have been on service calls, thousands of them.

    I just want a break before I have to go back on stage again.

    Additionally, I don't like teachers who tell stories instead of teaching the subject. I just teach the HVAC topic I was hired to teach. I don't want to waste your time and I don't want my time wasted.

    If I want to hear service call stories I will read them here at HVAC Talk. If you have one really, really worth telling fine. Post it here where I can choose to read it or not.

    So there! I got that off my chest.

    I love those intermission and after seminar chats Norm. That's where I can be more one on one with techs. I can understand needing the short downtime though.

    And yes, I do inject stories into my seminars. Never had a complaint about that.

    everything gets on my nerves people whom think their poop doesn't stink, rude pompous ignorant dumber than dumb jack asses whom have money because their family got it by screwing over someone else.

    Bosses whom spend all their time telling us techs how good the office staff is and not one word of praise about the techs sweating their collective nutsacks off actually carrying out the work

    While in a restaurant & the waiter/waitress refills your coffee & you say thank you & they reply "no problem". I wonder what constitutes a problem, no tip?

    Opening a new product description sheet, or directions, and you find it in two lanquages before you finally find it in english.

    Agree totally with Flange

    doglips comment about yankees in FL.
    What is the diffrence between a yankee & a damn yankee??

    Coolwhips - agree too -
    Was in accident caused by woman on cell phone - totaled my work van.




    Oh yea, the difference is a yankee comes to the south for a visit, a damn yankee stays.

    Every person on the planet that sucks in my precious oxygen and spews out needless carbon dioxide along with their bad breath irks me. All I know is, the day I take over control of this rotating orb we call earth, there will be a lot of people that made it on my sh*t list who will have some explaining to do.
