Comments: Glutton for Punishment

Probably totally off tpoic, but have you discovered anything gross whilst doing this job? Like at the bottom of the shafts?

So far, I've noticed nothing that I would consider "out of the ordinary" for a construction site. No "bodily excretions" or anything like that in my pit (thank goodness). You haven't been throwing any Munchkins down elevator shafts, have you? ;^)

Just wanted to chime in on Zippo lighters. Work great, last forever, and the lifetime warranty is no joke. I had the top of mine come off (the hinge weld broke). Sent it in, they re-welded the top to the hinge, and sent it back with some free flints.

Zippos ROCK! :-)

*Sitting up dazed and bruised at the bottom of elevator shaft*

I KNEW I shouldn't have downloaded that file. I wonder if he's fixed the computer yet...

Zippos are EVIL. The number of times I had my bangs singed by some drunken guy trying to be suave...although I can see how they'd be useful in extreme weather conditions. Caught in a hurricane? Need a light? No problem.

From Johnny-Oh's b-in law. "Now a word from our sponsor. Zippo lighters!"

This is Johnny-Oh's sister and I just had to comment about what may be getting in your shaft. It's a sad but very true and horrific story. You look and the shaft is full of, on no what could it be it's it's LADY BUGS!! These seeming to be harmless little bugs can and have shut elevators down. Now my baby brother can get a glimpse of what he could find in an elevator shaft. And I had some funny telling it. Won't he be proud?

For all that read this he really does have some serious blog deprivation going on. I hope he will be able to fix it soon. I've been surprised to even see him on the weekends. you all are a great support system for him. Thank you.

Now, are we talking about cute, harmless little authentic lady bugs, or those nasty, biting little imitation lady bugs?

We are talking about the seemingless harmless ones. Unless of course you are an elevator. Kind of hard to believe but it is very true. The very ones that are supposed to eat the aphids of off rose bushes. I found it pretty amazing but I know of 2 elevators that the little bugs have shut the elevators down. My poor husband and brother are gluttens. I am the dispatcher (service coordinator) for the elevators they install and later are turned over to me. We are a family with our ups and downs but we never get the shaft lol. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Just a note for all that are reading. I am still anxiously awaiting to hear about my baby brothers houseboat endeavors. Seems if all goes as we hope and suspect he'll be a neigbhor to my hubby and I's house on water. (We only get weekend visitation though:( ahhh! gotta love kids! )
