I've been dealing with the Plumber comments since I started in the trade ( but crack, your poop is my bread and butter ....hahah ) Really funny stuff .... NOT.

Its all funny untill the water is pouring out of the cieling at ten at night.

I'll have to go see the movie if only to see the HVAC Dad.

Pipe on Brothers.

    I saw a nice movie

    this weekend called Juneau, about a 16 year old girl who gets pregnant. It was a cute flick with a lot of clever one liners and a nice understated way of presenting the emotion of the film. (not LOL funny but clever and dry humor.) HOWEVER.... The father character is an HVAC technician and at one point tells the prospective adoptive parents, quite proudly, "Heating and A/C is my life." I thought to myself, right on brother! but was interrupted in my revelries by the response of the movie audience who thought his comment was quite funny and laughed in response. It gave me a little perspective on myself and food for thought. Apparently havc is thought to be a less than noble profession. That is of course until it's YOUR heat that's broken and YOUR house that's cold. In that eventuality I bet they would want someone who is passionate about doing things right in this concern to set things right in their personal comfort zone. If I could, I would like to do something more dramatic to help the world, like cure cancer or win a nobel peace prize for negotiating a peace in the middle East, but for now helping folks be comfortable and save on energy costs is my platform, and I must state, quite proudly,"HVAC is my life." Happy New Year ya'll WW

    I was going to post on this!

    The movie was "Juno" which my Susan and I enjoyed immensely... The father indeed was an HVAC tech and as with all of the characters, brilliantly portrayed. When leaving the theater, I told Susan that I ought to post an off-topic thread on this film. HVAC gets recognition! :)

    There he is, rewiring a motor while giving sage advice to his expectant daughter...

    Indeed, HVAC is his life.

    You go, Dad!

    Thanks for the comments guys

    I really did enjoy the movie. It was well done on many levels. I got misled by a film critic who said it was laugh out loud funny. I didn't find it so, but tongue in cheek funny, quirky and thoughtful. The Dad and the Stepmom were 2 of the most sane characters in the film. The actor that played the Dad also played J. Johnah Jameson in the Spiderman movies. I didnt recognize him until later. BTW Scott, some people just don't don't know, a good plumber is a treasure. WW

    Thanks for the tip

    I now look forward to seeing the movie. Sounds a bit like The Snapper, a movie of a Roddy Doyle novel (one of the Barrytown trilogy), along with The Commitments and The Van. Language can be a bit rough for some ears, but worth the time, I think.

    Again, thanks for the recommendation. I, for one, thank plumbers, HVAC, etc. everyday. My wife & I were just talking tonight about a (fantasy) series that would follow people & businesses through the work they do - groceries, manufacturers, churches, plumbers, etc. A behind-the-scenes, REAL reality series, instead of the mindless drivel spoon-fed to us all. It might help us all appreciate how the other guy's shoes fit.

    Peace & a happy, safe New Year.
