    26 years and counting, but you gotta' take in to account the three times I tried to get out. Mechanic work was too dirty, being an electrician too cold or too hot (remember you're installing, from scratch, the stuff that runs the HVAC and lights) and I suck at professional fishing. I am really to stupid to do anything else.

    we have quite a bit of experience on the forum here...very impressive

    Been turning the screwdriver for 15 years now and have a really long way to go before I hit retirement age...30 years plus by the time I get there and the way the US government is throwing away our money I will probably never get to retire!!!

    Accidents don't just happen. They must be carelessly planned.

    Uh-oh, sales- for every year in sales you must deduct THREE years of servicing (it takes that long for your brain to begin functioning....)

    I tend to agree with that ha ha. Can we find the oldest tech still active in the field, with the longest term in the industry? I am still trying to keep the customers happy by getting the toner on the paper in the correct amounts, and except for 3 years, have been fixing typewriters and then copiers since 1965. That was when there was still an apprenticeship system in our country. I turned 62 last October, still work in the field, and cover approx 1,500 kms per week. Must really be time to hang up the screwdriver. However where else can you get the same satisfaction, of happy customers and good copies.

    This is the part I love about field service-you are a hero four or five times a day, you work with technical issues, using tools, and you must utilize deductive reasoning. It is a great job!!


    However, I don't think that I would recommend it today..........
