That feeling....

Budget job for neighbors in need. Last of the fill line. Last 90 is pretty tarnished from bottom of bucket. Flux you grabbed was older, maybe a bit gel. You sand and polish, then watch the solder dance around the fitting and refuse to draw in. Then you look at your watch.
Just a guy running some pipes.

    I think it's a heart thing. When I do someone a favor and my heart is not in it, all hell breaks loose and I get that feeling....

    On the other hand, if my heart is in the right place, and all hell still breaks loose (it always happens no matter the heart's place) I just take it in stride and remember why I am there. To help a friend out.

    But on a Friday before a long weekend and 2 hours over....its heard to keep one's heart in the right place!
