    Dan's stories are always so interesting, human nature being what it is. I am amazed sometimes with the lack of communication between manager/owners and the front line people who actually do the work.. A new steam boiler for an apartment building has to be a large capital expenditure. If the boiler only lasted a short period of time I would be asking a lot of questions.
