Lets say your sent on a call.you arrive and find someone else already there,he briefs you as to what he has found, and heads off on another call,do you go from there or do you start from the beginning? I learned the hard way,thats why I start from the beginning...you know what I mean dont you?
Ummmmmmmmmmm If he was there first I reckon I'd wanna know why he aint doin it himself. Makes no sense to me why he would entertain leaving his call with me. I sure as heck wouldnt leave him working my call.
I too thought it didnt make sense,and still think that way,its a long story,and I could go on and on.....one way it can happen is when a guy is getting near the end of a shift,and they want him off,you can be sent that way....another is if he has already worked his shift and now is on O.T....or tired,you can be sent...theres been many of times its happened here.......but I will give you the prime example of what I really meant....dig this.....here a troubleshooter is told that if he cannot fix the problem in 15 minutes,then refer it to another crew...usually that crew is a one man.... now ( we ) know that you cant do much in fifteen minutes,so why even send them anyway....but that is how they run it....the troubleshooters dont stay in one area....they can reset a main breaker on one side of houston and be sent to the other side to do the same thing.....so now your getting near 80 miles....to reset 2 main breakers?....It gets deeper,you remember me saying that the troubleshooters are controlled by the supervisor over dispatching...which once happened to be a supervisor at a center over lineman....last time that I know of,he had around 40 troubleshooters under him......thats kind of the story Poot,theres more to it,and Ill let you know through an e-mail,I cant bring up the other issues,if I did,it would confuse people and cause lots of conflict,some might even think its racial,and I dont want that to drag on and on.
