Good news... well, sort of

Not Me!!!!!!!!! That'd be Tom.
I don't think I've been to Manhattan more than 20 times in my whole life. Besides, I'm not allowed to "carry" in NYC. where ironically is exactly where you need to.

I've always done most of my "sailing" in the Carribean. Having less time here, I'm a power boater.

That's funny. I always just assumed you had a sailboat. I've been on board sailboats a few times but much prefer power boats, though I never owned one.

I had my senior year of high school in Manhattan (on 59th near Lex) and worked in midtown a few years later. For a few months I worked in an office on the 30th floor of the Empire State building. I guess that makes me more a New Yorker than you, Jim... :^)

I've lived all over the country so my accent is somewhat cosmopolitan, I guess. My Portuguese accent is definitely Bahiano though. :^)

I was born in NJ. I've only known one person in my life who had the "Joisey" accent.
To that count I plead guilty as charged. :^)

It's not the sites that scare them. It's those tank tops you make your techs wear.

You've made my point.
It's the people who don't think about their surroundings that are more likely going to run into a problem they can't handle. Those that are aware ..... don't.
The obvious answer is ..... to not to work for the cheap snooty bastards. When I first started I was hardup for any job. Now, when I sense "the attitude" the price goes WAY up. If they're cheap, I don't get the job. If they're not, but pains in the ass, twice the amount makes it more bearable. But, on a couple of occasions, I've had to lay it on the line. Some back off. Those that don't, we settle up and they get someone else. I don't have time for the BS anymore and there's always another client waiting patiently for my work.
It's nice to be King.

Big whoop, I've done several Chicago project apartments in the past, not a big deal
Drinking on the job, how thoughtful. Why couldn't you have waiting until you were home?
