    I am an office manager for a heating and air conditioning company, where our office is sweltering hot during the summer and freezing cold in the winter

    Been in this job the last 5 years and still cannot figure out why people wait til heating season starts to discover that nothing works. I have my guys running themselves ragged.

    You should hear the calls I get......."I've tried everything but the furnace still doesn't work...can you send someone asap", only to find out when we get there either the batteries in their thermostat are dead and need changing or someone has turned the power switch on the wall off

    If I was paying $125.00 for a service call, I would make sure it was something I couldn't fix....some people just don't think

    I have a friend who is a plumber. He was called to Mission Hills (one of the richest areas of Kansas City) at 1:30 A.M. on a Sunday because their outside water wouldn't shut off. (They said it had been running all day!)

    He turned the faucet off! Wrote down on the ticket, "adjusted the flow valve to the off position." Charged them for a weekend emergency call and drove back home and went to bed. He was there for 2 minutes.

    In our house, everything waits until the middle of the night or the weekend to break. And it usually involves running water.

    Luckily, we really like our plumber. We should--we're putting his kids through college.

    I work as a custodial banker for a large financial firm in Boston. I manage a number of high volume funds concentrating in foreign markets. I am essentially managing fixed income and derivative products... ring a bell? morgage backed securities

    anyways, I'm glad I still have a job after the meltdown

    This thread has been dormant for a while and we have had a bunch of new members since the last post. So I'm just giving this a little bump.

    I work for a company that makes generators. When the generator reaches the end of the assembley line, its my job to hook it up, run it and make sure it works like its supposed to.
    If it doesnt work right, its my job to figure out why and to fix it so that it does work right.
