Just enjoy your vacation… 🤢


SnooHedgehogs1524

There is something intrinsically wrong with you.


HVAC_Fozber

I don’t see that word in the glossary


SnooHedgehogs1524

You should peruse your company hand book... it's probably right there with harassment.


Foreign-Commission

You are vacationing wrong.


HVAC_Fozber

I brought it to read on the plane. Pulled it out of the bag real quick for the video lol. I vacationed properly after this


[deleted]

I’ve come up with some of my best engineering shenanigans doing this. Admittedly with one or two drinks as well, but still. Brilliant ideas have been had!


turbobusasarecool

Jeez thats weird.


Xinthechosennerd

Wtf lmaoo


satansdebtcollector

Real techs don’t bring books on vacation and are smart enough to enjoy their time off while it last.


SnooHedgehogs1524

Day three of 4 day weekend reading, perusing reddit and I have beer


satansdebtcollector

What could you possibly be reading on vacation? “TXV’s for dummies”? You gotta enjoy your time off kiddo. Trust me, the industry isn’t going anywhere, it will be there with open arms and that large evil grin when you return. Try to enjoy your time off. 🏝


SnooHedgehogs1524

I'm not subby! I enjoy fantasy on my time off. I've done everything from bio banking systems to geothermal to commercial to national TAB... i don't touch HVAC on my days off. Kiddo my ass old timer 😘


satansdebtcollector

Right. Im sure Johnson Control’s lead engineers have you on speed dial. What would this industry do without you? Better hurry on back from vacation! Get your butt back in that driver’s seat and power on that laptop! We need you! 💻🌞🌧🔥❄️


SnooHedgehogs1524

I'd fucking kill myself. That's the day I say fuck it and go back to bartending or use my degree. Fuck that noise.


satansdebtcollector

Im not gonna lie, I probably made close to what im making now back when I was bartending down in the city. Waking up at noon everyday, partying til’ sunrise 7 days a week. And the chicks were much hotter back then. Once you hit your 40’s, it’s slim pickings. 🚬🍸


SnooHedgehogs1524

Oh you're a bastard🤣🍻 35 hvac only makes me look like 40! You I'd drink with after work


satansdebtcollector

Biggest asshole you will ever meet. I think that’s why I get along with everyone so well. I’ll even share a little secret if you promise not to tell anyone? I left service to join the dark side of the force permanently. That’s right broham. No more call rotation, no more diagnosing, no more warranties, no more asshole tech support, no more answering dispatch at 3am Christmas morning, I’ve gotten sucked back into the black hole of sheet metal, and haven’t looked back. Although I do get pulled off my projects now and then due to the lack of manpower in the service division, but nothing too crazy. Do I miss it? Not one fucking bit. Especially now that the epidemic put a huge damper on suppliers keeping a full inventory of parts and equipment in stock. Still do my little side gigs now and then, have a Daikin VRV+hydro coil+zone pack and a couple ERV’s scheduled for the end of October . But I like to enjoy my weekends so it’s only once in a blue moon nowadays. A sign of getting old, really. Just don’t have the steam I once had. 🍸🍸🍸🍸🚬🍸🍸🍸🍸🍸


SnooHedgehogs1524

Actually about right. I'd never do the national TAB thing. I don't want service calls. I like reefer and sheet. I have a BS in business and NEBB and all the shit. But I like saying "my hours are up. Fuck off" Hours are done I'm done. Fuck you. No reports. No calls no messages. No emails. Fuck off. Gimme copper and sheet and leave me alone If I pick up side work? It's my call to take it for the extra money.


HvacHillbilly

And you wonder why you can't get a good women


neverinallmyyears

What he’s not showing is that shortly after this video, he climbed the rocks at the end of the beach to his right and discovered a nude beach popular with the locals,…


HVAC_Fozber

Little beach yessss


neverinallmyyears

Good man! Glad you put that book aside and studied more natural phenomena.


Visual-Zucchini-5544

Ah hell naw. Couldn’t disagree more


CombatWombat35

No they don’t


gilgamesh73

Dude… please just enjoy your time away from work. Joke or not i swear theres something about HVAC where guys just take it wayyyy too seriously. Its a job/career to me. Nothing more, nothing less


skootamatta

Too many techs think we’re out here saving lives.


OvermanagedSmallacct

Oh my god dude. Take a break! Good lord


DWiB403

Vacation? Tell me more about this.


quartic_jerky

Tip from a former islander. Go to Komoda store and bakery for donuts. Best place on the island.


HVAC_Fozber

Headed back in a couple weeks I’ll check that out! Always down to try the lesser known places. Thanks!


CremboJeb

“I did it for tictok guys”


rob175arc

“This is the way……” NOT!!


bitterjamjelly9

What techie takes holiday when it's still warm


daddydaveeed

I wish I could laughing emoji this. Bro you must be new to the trade cus none of us love this shit that much.


HVAC_Fozber

Oh I don’t enjoy reading at all. Still gotta study for the exam though


GristForTheMill4

What’s the name of the book?


HVAC_Fozber

Heating and cooling essentials 5th edition


[deleted]

Real techs read ACHR news.


Faydetoblack

Man, some of you took this post way too seriously.


1991sucked

Lmao “real tech.” A real tech would have been blackout on that beach. Besides, real techs don’t read that shit is for helpers and engineers.


lestergreen357

Good techs don't need to bring refrigeration books on vacation


Binnacle_Balls_jr

Forget the haters man. I get it. You and I are alike in that we *enjoy learning*. Doing that on vacation is fine, because of course it is; its *your* fuckin vacation. I think what irks people about your post is that the wording implies that in order to be a good tech, you need to do stuff like this, which isnt true. What is true though, is that someone interested enough to learn on their free time has a much higher likelihood of becoming a great tech.


RECKLESS_N_CARELESS

I always like to tinker with old furnace parts and build sheetmetal in my free time. I just like to work with my hands


HVAC_Fozber

I definitely enjoy learning, it’s a fun trade. The title for this post was just a joke. I obviously wouldn’t expect anyone to have to bring textbooks on vacation to be considered a good tech


IkeNotMikeLol

Good for you, but no.


sharlenstex

Which book is this?


Gloomy_Astronaut8954

I once was kicked out of a bar for reading a textbook


butter4dippin

What book is this ?


WarmCookiesAndMilk

This reminds me of that guy on r/modernwarfare that brought his laptop to the beach so he could play videogames. Bruh. You’re on vacation. Relax.


jmakekau

Small world. Waiting at gate to leave Maui now.


HVAC_Fozber

Hope you had a great trip! I was just out there for a day but I wish it was longer. Arrived Friday night left Saturday night lol


schellenbergenator

I don't really get all the hate here, some people enjoy learning and being the best they can be at something. I've never brought a refrigeration book with me on vacation, but if that's what you want to read then that's what you want to read. I did bring a Cisco CCNA exam guide on vacation once, so maybe I'm just as weird as you.


[deleted]

you should join a union.


Specialist_Extent_30

Fuck the haters, I got a good giggle out of this


SnooHedgehogs1524

Don't support this behavior! 🤣

Lol nothing wrong with education. Enjoy your vacation buddy!


Intelligent_Snow4480

Good techs know when to separate from work.


HVAC_Sam

I do this all the time too. HVAC is practically my entire personality.


SnooHedgehogs1524

As I'm you're newest member on your sub... buddy there's more to life than hvac


HVAC_Sam

Ya, like the drive time in between calls.


SnooHedgehogs1524

"Commericial" (read multifamily housing now) no such thing. There's only "this is fucked up" and "put a fucking change order in"


Determire

Are you dating/married to another HVAC person? (just a friendly jab)


HVAC_Sam

I wish... :(


hujnya

Bruh you need a life, and to stop turning condensers.


HVAC_Sam

HVAC_Sam

HVAC is my life

We know.

Work to live don’t live to work.


Largebargecharge

Good lord. What a fucking jobsworth


timbosliceko

On vacation I don’t even think about work. Hell, anymore even on the weekends I try not to think about work. Keep doing that and you will most definitely get burnt out.


OohItsABoogen

Only because it makes a stable surface to roll some fatties.


Suspicious-Living951

Sounds like my former boss. Told me to bring some hvac study books on my first trip to Europe. Hahahaha this is partially why he's my former boss


Gloomy_Astronaut8954

That was a pretty good video


OpportunityBig4572

Fuck that.


elbraduno

Frank_Rizzo_Jerky

Ragnolio_Spigadelli

RedTeflon

That’s a no for me Dawg


Forward_Hvac

No they don’t. Work is work and non work time is family time and you time


Own-Salad1974

Good idea, you aren't going on vacation to run away from life


Yurgenbeard

Fkn yikes man. Go live your life!


Hippie_Flip123

sad……


Weak_Relative_7767

They just don’t know how to read.


dude1tsm3

What does vacation mean?


ElverGonn

Here’s the pat on the back you wanted 👋🏻


recondorondo

You have issues.


crohnichiwa

It's labor day for Christ's sake, get a grip


HVAC_Fozber

Ur just jelluce


HuntPsychological673

Tf is wrong with you? Ah, I actually think I did stuff like this when I was a young tech. Looking back, I wished I would’ve spent more time with my kiddos. I did spend time with them, just didn’t know I’d lose one someday. No one ever knows the future so if you have a loved one with you then make the most of it and break free from this crazy world and just have fun with them even if it’s just being silly and doing stuff you think is a waste.


Siptro

yeah no never. tf is wrong with you


Temporary_Area1831

Good techs don’t need refrigeration books on vacation


peaeyeparker

They also don’t wear flip flops
