Here we go again. My friend, who?

I'd never been a bench tech, but I can get through a few problems with
electronics, but mostly mechanics. As such, I can't attest to the stifling
conditions, but how reasonable it would be to assume an empty device should
fail in a similar manner to a full machine. Sure there's an extra load on the
device, and obviously a stress condition was indicated. I too, would first try
to repeat the failure with an empty dryer. I can't say for sure if I'd try it
with a wet load, or not, but the reason I mentioned the typical troubleshooter
in any given house, would be to presume they forgot they turned it off, or that
the timer wasn't turned far enough to keep it on for a length... ... ...

Maybe that's what SJ wanted, and belying you to the chore, satisfied their
equilibrium.

Maybe, a lot of mechanics, and gas jockeys are sensory driven, judgmental
individuals, that believe the one place for a woman in a shop is on a calender
on the wall. When a Shirley Muldowney, or Danica Patrick come along, they are
seen as flukes, and they return to their protective little shells they have
erected for their egos. I wonder how many service techs would let them drive if
they had to get someone to a hospital in a hurry.


 AH>           I have some difficulty with the word
 AH> "wishy-washy" because my mother- in-law... who
 AH> was very SJ... described me the same way.

Now, there's a rub, isn't it? The perception of others, and how we can write
off others without understanding their motivations, or why they perceive others
like they do.

 AH> the penny has dropped.  The cashier may not have
 AH> to work very hard if her customers think she's
 AH> unavailable... I saw that immediately.  There
 AH> may be another reason for her behaviour too,
 AH> though.  SJ's thrive on rules, policies, and
 AH> procedures. They love posting signs with rules
 AH> like "No pickup or dropoff of students here" or
 AH> "Staff Only -- no exceptions!"  But when others
 AH> put these rules to the test, they may find the
 AH> signs don't quite mean what they say.  So if an
 AH> SP thinks the sign saying "DANGER -- KEEP OUT!"
 AH> is irrelevant, I can understand that....  :-)

Because they are more apt to look for proof?

Even though I'm associating the letter designations alright, I still doubt I
could pick one out in a crowd. I have a twelve hour day ahead of me today, and
two appointments tomorrow, so I'll have to keep this brief. (I won't mention
the yard cleaning yesterday. Opps! |-)


 AH>           Exactly.  Dallas has the same problem

"Timed outlets"?

I would suspect erratic power supply, or operator error. Those *never* happen
here. O-8*
