    It's not Pride itself which is the sin. It is Pride without Gratitude that is the sin; false pride.

    Honor and personal integrity are not sins. And the Bible even says somewhere that the diligent man prizes his possessions.

    In fact, his motivation seemed to be pride, which is technically a sin.

    But I think that sin cancels out his apprentice's sin of bearing false witness to the compressor placements.

    So I think he's good to go.

    No no. Clearly you're mistaken. Pride is a sin, but it's okay because you're covered by the "double sin-demnity" clause.

    Pride is a sin when it comes from the belief that your accomplishments come from you alone, and not by the gifts you receive by the grace of God.

    Satan became the author of pride when he said, "I will exalt myself."

    We can take great satisfaction in a job well done, as long as we remember that we are "unprofitable servants," and that "all my works are as filthy rags."

    And let us remain eternally mindful that God's benevolence is particularly focused on coming to the aid of fools and drunks. Which serves to provide me with a source of double protection.

    Y'all need to send your prayers to Carrier because they need a freakin' miracle!

    I went back there today to pick up the right compressor. Took the counter guy 30 minutes to find a box in the warehouse and wheeled it out. I look at the box. Not even close to the same model number! I said I had to run, but please find the right compressor and I'll be back later. Finally, they found it and gave it to me this afternoon.

    Would have been REALLY funny if it was the wrong box with the right compressor in it.

    I was taught early on to always check and double check everything I pick up at a supply house. I did my best and only messed up once with a blower motor, not a compressor. I needed a 208 motor and realized I had a 120v motor after it was installed. I used the neutral for the convenience outlet, noted it on the schematic, and called it a day. Good bad or indifferent, it worked.

    Fast forward to yesterday, A guy comes into my supply house. English is not his first language. Shows me a picture of a Copeland label (didn't but it from me) and asks what size capacitor goes with it. I tell him it's 3 phase and doesn't need a capacitor. He tells me it's 3 horsepower and want's to know what capacitor goes with it. He then shows me the tag on the old compressor which clearly says single phase, 45mfd cap. I went back and forth with him for about 10 minutes and quoted him for a new single phase compressor. He walked out. Somebuddy f'ed up
