I steer clear of HVAC, electrical and plumbing...but the other stuff, watch out, here I come
HVAC huh,

Most people don't even know what that is. I'm impressed. I work in a sub field of HVAC.

HVAC scares me...well, the heat scares me so I prefer not to tempt the a/c gods by fooling with the system!

What do you do in a sub field of HVAC?

Sheesh, even I know! And I know it costs about 5-6K to replace the damn crap!

As far as other projects, they don't want me any near them!

I had one of my units going crazy last summer and I had the company come out and they wanted to put in a completely new unit for 7k and I decided to get another quote...$450. I needed a new part, not a system.

Was that you, Chow???

Well, that's the land of no repairs... Or such crazy expensive repairs that nobody bothers with them 'cause a new thing would cost almost as much.

His excuse was "Well, the system is old and I figured you'd want a new one"

Yeah, a new one if I can repair the old one

I'm listening to some older music I used to listen to when I was a kid. I wouldn't say it makes me "happy" but it reminds me of when I was once happy with no worries or stress. The world was in much better shape as well. However, right now I am sorta mixed. The music is also a bit depressing for me as I wish I could go back to those times as I am having some tough times right now.

These are not good times to monkey around unless you're absolutely sure the company and the business are solid and depression-proof.
