    I have 2, 1/2 page add`s and I charge the most out of everyone in our phone book. I do good work and make good money and I stay busy too When someone cry`s about price, I tell em they can do it if they want, thay always say "no way!".....rotflmao

      True, until you see a H.O. go in and ask how to install a water heater.
      Then you see a story in the news how a family of 4 died in their sleep, you wonder.
      I got a call a few weeks back from a H.O. that claimed his heater was existing...he had aluminum vents on it and there were melted holes in it.
      I really wanted to slap the guy, sorry if that sounds adverse, but he coulda killed his family.
      People have no idea what they're getting into and they look at us like we're just dumb grunts..."Heck, I'm a software engineer...this should be a snap."
      I've seen things like a 3/4" plug in a leaking relief valve on a boiler..."I went online...someone told me that would hold for the night".
      Might help if you knew it was a relief valve when you told "mr handyman" online there was a water leak. that off my chest...there, I think I feel better.
