Fed up with the heat...

For those of you that work outside and especially those inside industrial sized convection oven work-shops(Most Auto-repair places), Im sure you all feel the same. I get to the point where Im about about ready to roll my box out of the shop and up-root to someplace where it's not so miserable during the summer....and then the weather starts to gets nice. Only a few more weeks of baby powder between the legs!(LOL)

Everytime I have to turn a wrench in my garage, I wonder how in the you guys do that for 8-10+ hours a day.

The technical school commercials make it look soo fun and rewarding.
LOL.

A lot of the highline cars have a/c shops now. Also our place got the vinyl "fast" doors too. They look like a tarp with a window, but go up and down really fast to keep the a/c in. It makes a huge difference.. U can work all day and go home not feeling like you got punched in the face..

stop complaining about the heat. It's not that bad. I'd rather be hot than cold
