    Knee problems??

    Close to 30 years in the business and I have had to have my left knee operated on 6 years ago and it still messes with me.

    Any other (Oldies) out there with the same problem?
    Can we get a class action suit against the manufacturers for making it a Bit*h to work on them?

    How about the long term affects of toner on skin or lungs.

    I am getting old and this job is getting harder and harder physically to repair.

    Just ranting. 6 Fosters and my knee still hurts.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    What on earth are you doing drinking Fosters? Sure its an Australian Beer, but we dont touch it here.....its awful..... we ship it over to you guys. You can hardly find the stuff here. It is terrible.

    I've had 3 knee surguries in my teen years due to basketball & football, and now I have trouble bending down servicing machines too all these years later. You're not the only one faxman..... I reckon there'll be alot more too.

    Kneeling down is so much easier than getting up. I must look like some kind of cripple, stumbling back onto my feet.

    No surgery, yet. My left leg is better than my right. Sure, it's an occupational hazard. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I throw away all my work pants when the left knee gets worn. Usually every six months. My knees always hurts when it gets cold. 20 years as a tech and I hurt more each year. Gotta love it !

    Prefer Warsteiner, but all the kegs for the last year have been skunked.
    What can I say, I like a pilsner/ale.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    OMG, and I thought I was the only one stumbling around like a 70 year old when I stood up. I have severe arthritis so the whole lower leg hurts. Pain shoots down the leg bone to the ankles. That and a pinched nerve in my lower neck make me feel great. I already had the torn rotate cuff in my left arm operated on. When some one misses work because their tummy hurts, I want to push their face into a wall.

    Democracy is still the worst form of government, except for all the rest of them.

    My aching knees are accompanied by chapped lips, but this is mostly due to being on my knees, kissing butt and begging for an increase!!
