    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    I bet its fun when he has to go find that one part that he knows he has from some site 3 years ago but can't find it. I had a co-worker like that and he would pull it all out and put it back and not organize it. No lessons learned....

    Wish I could like this one a few times.

    You're right: that's no good - looks like he's barely got anything to work With.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    This is a kid in maybe his late 20's. Probably his first job. No life experience, and especially no HVAC experience. He's a child. He actually thinks he's doing us a favor when he runs and gets parts then drops them off.

    Replaced a condenser on an Intellipak yesterday. He grabbed the outlet header, which is rather small compared to the inlet header, and bent the holly crap out of it. Right in front of me. Then told another worker that it wasn't him, that it had something to do with a rope.

    So he's also a liar.

    Im a slob by nature and hate myself for it. Ive been embarrassed a thousand times by my messy truck and I know I can work more efficiently. Seems like the hours simply dont exist to clean up my truck.
    a few times a year I will go ape S%*!T and clean out the bed.

    Thats why I always open up the box and inspect before leaving the supply house. Easy to forget though when in a rush.
