Abandoned in my hour of need

Posted on April 3, 2008 at 9:54pm 3 Comments

Yesterday my boss had me reflashing a chimney and adding a cricket. A cricket is a small peaked roof behind a chimney that forces the water to flow around a chimney and off of the roof.

Well , my boss has developed a tendancy to wait till the last minute to gather materials. It wastes a good portion of the day .

Well , I tore off the roofing around the chimney and cleared… Continue

About two days later, it started to turn red and hurt. I tried to call my doctor and he wasn't in his office that day . Around here, we have what we call a "doc in a box". It is a walk in clinic with no appointment… Continue
